Jeanette and Gerry are the best people you can ever ask for. They are friendly, kind and flexible with great communication. The house is cosy like home but with spectacular and expansive views. Will definitely recommend to everyone who is looking for accommodation in Auckland.

This is the second time my family have stayed with Gerry and Jeannette, my Aunt had a lovely time staying with them on her short visit to Auckland. They are wonderful hosts, very friendly and helpful. Their guest rooms are lovely and everyone always enjoys the view from the living areas! It is awesome to have such great accommodation close by and I definitely recommend them :)

Gerry and Jeanette were outstanding. A lovely glass of wine and a roaring fire on a cold winter's night was just the perfect welcome for travellers. Not to mention the famous morning muesli and views of the Waitemata Harbour. Can't wait to stay here again with personable and incredible hosts in their stunning home!

Jeannette and Gerry were great hosts. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, and the location was amazing. We loved getting out walking on the Peninsula. We felt very welcome and had a very pleasant and relaxing stay on the Peninsula. Thank you.

Gerry and Jeanette were very welcoming and we felt at home. The property is spacious, clean and comfortable. The views are amazing and sunrise over the city was beautiful. My husband did a couple of early morning runs through the nature reserve. Our children loved the garden and enjoyed playing with the toys. This was the perfect base for exploring the city and west coast beaches.

Gerry & Jeannette User ProfileGerry & Jeannette is a superhost.

We are an easy going couple, who enjoy meeting people. Gerry works in IT and Jeannette worked in a school with disabled children until the beginning of 2012. Our interests are walking, hiking, cycling, travelling and beach holidays. Gerry is rebuilding a large catamaran and loves sailing. When that is completed we hope to do lots of sailing around NZ. We love spending time with our eight grandchildren and getting together with family and friends. Airbnb has been a part of our lives since July 2011 and we are truly honoured to have had so many wonderful people from all over the world come and stay with us.
