This large, private and sunny downstairs room is in a fantastic location in a seaside suburb not far from the city. Queen sized bed with room for a rollaway. Continental breakfast, tea, and plunger coffee included.

The space

This listing suits business travelers, couples, or very small families.

This is a 2-Storey duplex with 2 bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. There is one bathroom on each floor.

The guest bedrooms are downstairs. They share the bathroom/laundry and a rumpus room/library.

Tea and coffee making facilities are provided, as well as soap, shampoo, and towels if you need them. There is a beach towel for you too.

A continental breakfast is provided.

A microwave, electric kettle, plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, and glasses are provided. You can enjoy the organic plunger coffee and selection of fresh teas, or take-away meals in your room at any time.

The room has a queen-sized bed, dining table with 2 chairs, and 2 comfy bean bags.

A single mattress can be supplied for an extra person.

Guest access

Guests basically have the whole downstairs to themselves, with separate entry.

Every now and again I will use the laundry which is in the guest bathroom.

The library/rumpus room is rarely used by us as we tend to stay upstairs.

There is a sunny deck and kitchen upstairs which are available to guests as well.

Interaction with guests

We like independent, busy guests but we also love a chat over breakfast a morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine.

You are welcome to cook your meals in our kitchen as long as you clean up after yourself. We have a plant and fish based diet.

We welcome you into our home and respect your privacy.

We hope that you make yourselves comfortable and respect our home and privacy in return.

Other things to note

A healthy continental breakfast is supplied.

I am gradually refurbishing my home to change the dark 70s décor into light beach/scandi design.

The bedrooms have been done but you'll notice some remnants of the 70s around the house, such as the linoleum floor in the hallway and 'charming' brown door frames. Groovy baby!

Jayne was a great host! She made us feel very welcome in her house and helped us with so many things. She even organised her trusted taxi driver to pick us up from the airport and bring us to her place. She showed us the area around and recommended places to get things like food and public transportation cards. She provided a healthy breakfast with delicious fresh bread. Her home is lovely decorated and her cute dog loves to get cuddles. We would definitely stay with Jayne again in this beautiful area of Auckland.

A place that feels like a real home! The room (and whole house) is cosy and nicely decorated. All necessities are provided, and Jayne is extremely welcoming and helpful, also great to talk to. If you like dogs, you will love this one, as she loves anyone who wants to play and rub her tummy. The location is convenient and in a safe suburb. 2 minutes to the seaside (for beautiful walks, runs or swimming in the summer), nearby cafes and shops, bus stops; half an hour walk to the mall or St. Heliers town centre. This place is definitely recommended!

It is our third stay at Jayne's place, and we love it. It is ideally located, the room is very nice and comfortable, and Jayne is the most welcoming host we've met. On top of it all she offers a wonderful breakfast too! Would definitely recommend!

Jayne is a very kind host and her little dog Lila is great fun to play with. The house is ideally located, cafes and restaurants are close by, as well the beautiful beach. The room is super confortable, tidy and calm, and the breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend!
