House Rules

I have a cat so if I'm not here when you stay you may need to feed the cat. I don't allow you to bring your pets. I ask you to respect that this is my home and to treat it like you would your own. Full list of house rules/settle in notes is left on your bed. All I really ask is that if you haven't stayed in Air B&B before best to have a read up on what is expected of the guest and host. I liken it to sharing a flat for the period your hear i.e. if you make a mess you clean it up - I don't mean this to be harsh however if you have only ever stayed in hotels then this is quite different. There isn't someone who comes in and cleans up your room or the house daily. I charge a modest cleaning fee which covers my time to clean the house once you've left in readiness for the next Air B&B guest. I ask that you clean your dish's after use and put away and I give you plenty of space in the fridge/freezer and panty so would appreciate you using these area's so the food prep area is free of left over foods, drinks etc. I also ask you to take any food items with you when you leave. Would really appreciate you using the cloth's line for drying washing - which is inside the garage.

Ellan's home was a lovely place to stay. Clean, comfortable and in a great location close to the beach and bars/resturants. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

Ellan's home has a perfect location, right across from the famous Mission Bay Fountain- we couldn't have wished for anything better!! We sat out in the balcony every morning sipping our tea and overlooking the Bay and it was total bliss! Ellan is a very warm and pleasant person and we felt comfortable and at home , right away. There is a uniqueness about her home- it has an old world charm. We would highly recommend her place to anyone who would like to stay in Mission Bay.

A lovely few days spent in this great location - literally right overlooking the main fountain & park at Mission Bay with a stunning view. Ellan is fun to chat to - it's a cosy and creative place - bring your walking shoes for hours of walking round the bays. The movies are a must to.

Ellans appartment is nicely decorated, neet and tidy. From the balcony you can overlook the whole Mission Bay beach seceneray. Its very special because you can look at with artists, outdoor people and families playing at the fountain during the day and night time. Lovely… Also the bedroom us bright, the bed itself is very comfortable and all facilities can be used in the flat. Ellan gave us the feeling to be at home right from the beginning. She is a very open minded person, likes art and culture and gave us some awesome ideas to go to. We would highly recommend Ellan because of her hospitality.

Ellan is a fabulous host and so generous with her time she welcomed us at the airport with a hug and a broad smile. Our flight was delayed but she still only charged us such a small amount considering the parking fees. Her apartment is very homely and welcoming and in such a fantastic position. Second to none views and many cafes nearby bus right out front for long time stay. We were in Auckland and New Zealand in general for a cruise and a wedding that was in walking distance from her apartment so it was such a bonus for us. The following morning we were to join our cruise around NZ and she generously again took us into the city for a minimal charge again showing her generous hosting skills. I would recommend her listing to anyone. So thank you so much Ellan and sorry not to have written earlier but we have had no computer or email for 2 weeks.

Thanks Julie - really appreciate your warm words. And thanks for the comment about the room being really hot I'll definitely look in a ceiling fan for the future. Hope your cruise lived up to your expectations. Hope to see you again. Kind regards Ellan

Hi - My name is Ellan and I've recently semi-retired. I'm a travel nut and so while away travelling I have a house sitter who will look after your needs if I'm not at home during your stay.

This year I'm starting my travels by going to Thailand for the second time to get dental work done and explore more of Thailand. Later in the year I'm travelling to Italy for a month with a couple of friends I met when I went to France last year.

I also have a son living in Sydney and like to visit him regularly so another reason to join AirB&B.

I also run a couple of small business like buying and selling Rock and Roll clothes. I also collect vintage and antique babies clothes that I frame in modern boxed frames to sell.

Footfoot my cat is very independent and only visits me at tea time for a feed.

My apartment is 2 bedrooms so you will be sharing it with me or a house sitter when you stay in my cute apartment. I only returned to Auckland last year after making the decision to retire and was so luck to buy this place right across the road from Mission Bay beach. I have a neat view of the park, fountain and beach. There is always something happening in this location as it is very popular with tourist and locals being so close to the city. It's only 7minutes by bus into town.

I love all the activity and the restaurants just outside my door.
