About this listing
Relax harbourside in our European-style home. Let our place be your base for exploring West Auckland with its scenic natural walks, coastal cycleways and friendly people. We would love to share the NZ lifestyle and our home with you!
We are offering a private ensuite guest room that has a queen sized bed.
The shared facilities include a large modern kitchen, laundry and clotheslines, a sheltered garden, an entertainment area with couch and flat-screen television, a small indoor pool with swim-jets and a spa pool.
Guests may freely share the kitchen, the pool and spa, the laundry, entertainment area, the garden and any obvious shared spaces in the house and garden. Our family members' bedrooms, office and cars & garage are off limits.
Interaction with guests
If we are around, we are happy to support and may even take part in joint outings.
Other things to note
We would love to help you out with any information about walking tracks, cycleways and any local information that you'd like to know.
Our home is strictly smoke-free, but if you are in absolute need of a relaxing nicotine boost, there is an ashtray on the outside terrace.
You are welcome to enjoy the facilities such as our little indoor pool & spa (please shower/wash off sunscreen etc. beforehand) and please keep the doors to the pool house closed. Please don't be shy to ask for assistance on how to operate any facilities.
We ask that you please switch off any equipment after use, clean up after yourself and avoid burning down the house.

We're a New Zealand based family, our kids are grown up and well on their ways and are either living at home or close-by.
We are into DIY, biking and going for a walk, tasty foods and catching up with family and friends. We hope to stay healthy as we cruise along in life. We value multicultural experiences, respect, tolerance, credibility and creativity. If you think this sounds like you, we would love to share our comfy lifestyle with you.
We have a comfortable and reasonably large home that caters well for our family and visitors. Each room has internet access, TV and air-con. Our solid home has solar-powered hot water and rainwater utilisation. Beyond that, we have a small indoor pool & spa, a lift to reach the upstairs and an open-plan living area with picturesque views of the Waitemata Harbour. The north-facing terrace and cosy garden with some fruit trees and vegetable gardens are surrounded by pencil conifers and screen planting for privacy and shelter.
We are about a 5 minutes’ walk from the sea and the coastal walkway. One can make it in 15 minutes off-peak, by car, to the Auckland city centre and the other way to one of New Zealand's largest and cheapest supermarkets. The beaches and the rain-forest of the Waitakere Ranges are also within easy reach.
If you are heading to Auckland, get in touch with us and see how we could accommodate you. Until we meet... Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.
