Location

Auckland, New Zealand

Our B&B is located in Onehunga, one of the oldest village of Auckland. Many buildings are proud reminder of the colonial past of New Zealand. Onehunga offers a wide cultural diversity as well as easy access to almost all amenities, parcs, as well as almost all cultural, commercial and sport centers. Onehunga Village is well known for its cultural diversity, shopping and night food markets. The Village is litterally at the door step.
