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.
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. No off-street parking is available. You can park directly outside, very close-by or in a quiet cul de sac street directly behind our property.
We are very relaxed and want you to enjoy your stay but request that you do not smoke indoors, leave your pets at home and treat our property with respect.
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.
