Our home is central, light and modern - it has ample space. A north facing backyard with pool and outdoor dining area. A modern kitchen, dining area and 2 living spaces. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. A perfect central home for your break!

The space

Beautiful large north facing home with pool. Great location for family - walking distance to Cox's bay park, close to zoo, sky tower, Ponsonby Road's shops and cafes and all other central Auckland amenities

Our home is very light, sunny and private. It has a modern kitchen, dining area and two living areas - plenty of room to chill out! It has amazing indoor/outdoor flow with large sliding doors to the pool and barbecue area. In winter the house is very warm with underfloor heating and a gas fire place. It has four double bedrooms. Upstairs there is the master bedroom with a super King bed and ensuite bathroom, another bathroom (with bath) and two double sized bedrooms with a king single bed (and pop up single bed if needed) in each. Downstairs there is another modern bathroom, a bedroom with a double bed and a separate laundry (washer and dryer). We have two living areas, a dining room and large kitchen. There's also a separate laundry (washer and dryer). The office space and garage will be locked however there is off street parking for 2 vehicles.

We will endeavor to meet you if we are in Auckland but otherwise will be available via phone and or email. I will also leave a list of recommended restaurants and contact numbers for e.g taxis

Grey Lynn/Westmere is a historic neighborhood with lots of character buildings with a number of shops, boutiques, cafes and bars only a minute's walk away . You could walk to the Ponsonby Road which has amazing shopping and restaurants, or stroll Cox's Bay park - a huge park near the harbour. Also within walking distance is a supermarket, boutique supermarket (Farro Fresh), cafe and takeaway shops.

With a bus stop just 100 meters away you'll be well placed to explore the city by bus. As we are so Central you can also stroll to the local cafes, supermarket and shops.

We really enjoyed staying in this wonderful spacious and light filled home. The pool was great and there were lots of cafes and walks nearby.

Our stay at Penny and Ewen’s house in Westmere was very enjoyable their beautiful house is modern but with a very homely feel. Our family enjoyed relaxing around the heated pool especially during the evening with the sunny northern aspect. Penny and Ewen left very clear instructions, which made our 3-week holiday stress free; they kept in touch over the period of our stay to ensure everything was going well, this was very appreciated. The house is close to the park, shops and bustling Ponsonby we were never bored. Also special thanks to there two girls for leaving toys out for my children. They even had an Xmas tree with decorations on it when we first arrived. We look forward to renting their beautiful home again for our next vacation to New Zealand.

Ewen's home was fantastic, it had everything we needed and plenty of room for a group or family. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house and location.

Big thank you to Penny and her family for making our xmas stay so memorable and happy! We enjoyed your beautiful home and neighborhood as if it was ours, and could not have asked for kinder or more responsive hosts. Penny went out of her way to ensure our family had everything we needed, including amenities for a young child. Our family would be thrilled to stay at Penny and Ewen's again on a future visit to Auckland.
