Johns place was amazing, very private and clean. The unit had a lot of books games for the kids even provided shampoo, so thoughtful. Would highly recommend staying here close to Auckland but far enough away from the noise and traffic.

Great space with everything you need. Nice extra touches such as bottles of water, fresh milk and nut bars. John’s communication was prompt and helpful. Thanks for having us.
