Carolyn and Glenn extended us a very warm welcome to their home and made us feel very much at home. Both were very helpful getting around Auckland and to the show at Mt Smart, and we very soon felt as if we had known them forever. Beautiful large room and great facilities in kitchen and outdoor living etc. Will come back again. Gerald and Joy

Thanks Carolyn and Glenn for having me. It was so lovely to stay with such a nice couple - this was my first real 'home away from home' through air bnb. I really appreciated help with transport and getting around, a late arrival and just being made to feel so welcome. Awesome experience!

I loved staying with Carolyn and Glenn. They couldn't have made me feel more welcome, it really felt like a home from home. I felt very at ease and it was really lovely to get to know the family and their adorable furry friends. Their house is lovely and in a fantastic location, near to some lovely picturesque walks and easily accessible with public transport options nearby. Definitely recommend.

Carolyn & Glen were awesome hosts; friendly and helpful for tips. Their home is just lovely, in a fantastic area and therefore very central. We just loved their animals, in particular their cats so adorable, just loved having them sleep with us! Thanks so much for having us :)
