Welcome to our private stand-alone studio, centrally located in Auckland's historic marine suburb of Devonport. A very short walk to Cheltenham beach, golf course, specialty shops and public transport. Access Auckland's CBD and beyond by ferry.

The space

We offer completely self-contained accommodation with private access to our large, luxury studio. For your relaxation we have a covered deck opening onto a sunny tranquil garden.
Furnished with a super-king bed and top quality linen, sofa-bed, dining table and chairs, TV and free WiFi.
Includes a fully equipped modern kitchenette for all your cooking needs.
Outside barbecue available for use.
The bathroom has a powerful shower, gas hot water, heated towel rail and all extras.

Interaction with guests

The studio is privately located at the rear of our own property. We are well travelled, approachable and normally on-site to discreetly help with anything you may want or need to know.

Other things to note

In addition to the super-king bed, we can offer a travel crib (for small babies). Setting up the crib, or the extra sofa-bed for a two-guest booking, incurs an extra one-off fee of $20.

This is a super cute property. It is very quiet, immaculately clean, cosy, and well appointed. I stayed here while attending a 2 day spiritual retreat in Takapuna - it was the perfect place - like a little sanctuary. Merv was really accommodating and friendly, and at the same time our privacy was respected. The location - with a great cafe (best raspberry & white chocolate muffins EVER) right across the road made the stay so simple. Plus, walking options with the beach only a very short walk away and Devonport's North Head, village, Mt Victoria all nearby. Oh, and the gorgeous cat!! He was just soo smoochy, and so loveable... A great stay!!!

Merv and Jill's studio was stylish, comfortable and had everything we needed. Loved the big comfy bed. Perfect location, close to great eating places and a good walk into the Devonport centre. Would definitely return.

I needed a place to stay for the week while i was doing a job in the area. This was a perfect place to come back to after a day of work to relax in peace and quiet. The studio was really nicely done, clean and homely. Merv and Jill gave me space but were also happy to offer help with any local knowledge I needed.

This was a lovely spot to stay. We felt that we had our own little private home with two fat ginger cats lounging in the garden. We had a vehicle so getting into Devonport was only a few minutes drive, but it's a lovely neighbourhood for long walks and the beach isn't far away. The french bakery just a few doors down was fabulous for breakfast.

Married to Jill for a long time. We have 2 adult sons and enjoy the company of our family and friends.
We are well travelled and go overseas at least once a year, mainly to South East Asia or India for which we have a particular love affair and have been there many times.
We are self employed with our own business (not Airbnb) and Jill also teaches English to new immigrants.
I am really into playing and listening to music.
We both love interesting food and wine. I really enjoy cooking so we are always on the lookout for different dishes and culinary delights, particularly when we are travelling overseas.
We both love gardening with a particular interest in orchids.
We are both born and bred New Zealanders that have lived here all our lives and have an extensive knowledge of the many facets of our country.
