Our tropical garden is yours to enjoy while relaxing in the serene surroundings of a blue & white nautical themed grnd floor apartment. Just steps from cliff top walkways, stunning harbour views and beaches plus local cafes.

The space

So close to beaches and cliff top walkways yet totally private with own access. Ideally suited to a couple or single but could accommodate a young child or 1 other person for a short time.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the garden and a solar heated salt water swimming pool in the summer months.

I would like to meet and interact with our guests and introduce them to the amenities and delightful surroundings of our neighbourhood. I will usually be present during their stay.

Fiona and Joe were very welcoming (so was Buster their dog) and they respected my privacy as I came away for some R&R and to have some peace and quiet. The location and accommodation was perfect for my stay. I had everything that I needed, it was spotless and clean and very well appointed. Very close to the beach and village if you wish to eat out. I would definitely come back again and highly recommend this lovely retreat. Thank you Fiona and Joe for a wonderful stay. I came away feeling refreshed and my batteries recharged.

This is a gem of a place to stay. The photos are exactly as it is but it is even better than it looks. The garden that the lounge and bedroom look out to is lovely and a restful place to sit and bask in the sun or drink your coffee. Fiona is a wonderful host- we really appreciated the extra little touches like the fresh fruit, the cookies and chocolate bars nested amongst the coffee, tea and cereals on the tray table and the delivery of fresh linen part way through our one-week stay. Fiona and her husband were welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The location is great- close to the beaches and the lovely coastal walk-way which lead to shops and super local cafes. A top notch place to stay.

Tropical Garden Retreat describes Fiona and Jo's apartment perfectly. They are marvelous hosts and made us feel welcome from the first minute until the last. The East Coast Bays are a beautiful and this is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the area whether you have a car or not. Thanks so much Fiona and Jo.

We loved this sunny, spacious accommodation! There's a lovely garden, the bed is very comfy, the bathroom is big and modern and the space has everything you need. Fiona had left a fruit basket, cereal etc which was gratefully received as we arrived fairly late. Also Buster the dog was a welcome visitor in the garden - what a cool character :) I would definitely recommend and would hope to return if visiting Auckland again.

Oh my goodness. where to begin? The turn-out and the welcome to Fiona's wonderful little retreat was absolutely lovely. Charming and generous touches show that Fiona and Joe take pride and joy in their role as host. Just overjoyed at our experience of this place. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Fiona & Joe are the best hosts ever! We felt like home and at the same time just like on a wonderful vacation from the very first moment :) Their place is a true gem located in a wonderful setting, an amazing morning view with palms, and a close walk to the beach. Fiona's great taste and her eye for the little details made us feel very comfortable. Both she and Joe are really helpful and very lovely people, they gave us a lot of advice how to get around. Their little dog is adorable and very babyfriendly, too. We recommend them wholeheartedly to everyone! :)))
