Gerry and Jeannette are terrific hosts! While their home is far from the city center (renting a car is highly recommended as Auckland is very big city), you won't regret staying with them. I couldn't think of a more beautiful spot that is peaceful and overlooking the city and harbor. More importantly, both of them embody what hosting should be. They ensured that our stay was comfortable and were attentive even to the little details. Jeanette prepared wonderful breakfast everyday and we enjoyed talking with them, sharing our views and backgrounds. Lastly, they gave us a lot of tips and suggestions to help us navigate around Auckland. I would definitely stay with them again should I ever visit Auckland in the future!

Can't recommend gerry and jeanette more. We travelled from the uk with 2 small kids and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and felt so comfortable. The location is amazing with views of Auckland to die for. Breakfast was brilliant and set you up for the day! Will definitely be back to stay again

Our hosts Gerry and Jeannette were the icing on the cake.They were so helpful and fun to visit with . When we return we will definitely book this home!

Gerry and Jeanette are the most hospitable, understanding and kind hosts we have on this trip. Their waterfront property is amazing and the view is unparalleled. We were so blessed with their company as our North Island mini adventure comes to a close. It is indeed a memorable and wonderful stay. Thank you for the awesome breakfast, the patience to our late arrival and the nocturnal activities as we stretch our experience in Auckland to the max.

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.
