This is a lovely, light-filled, tastefully decorated home with spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. The Snug Room is located in the centre of the home but it is filled with light from windows at the top of a very high ceiling. The room adjoins the home's lounge which is almost always a very quiet space and opens up to a garden patio. The room is right near a guest toilet. The shower is downstairs and is shared with up to two other guests.

The space

I have other rooms available for AirBnB guests (see details below). My home can be a great place to meet other travellers from New Zealand and from around the world. Stimulating conversations and spontaneous meals/drinks can happen whenever guests are so inclined to mix with each other - and/or with me :-) Or you can enjoy the privacy of your own room - each room has its own workspace.

See my guidebook on this listing for information on local supermarkets, cafes and movies theatres.

Master suite in central home

Judie was a fantastic host, very approachable and lovely to chat to and made me feel very at home (which after immigrating to the other side of the world was very much welcomed). She was flexible with check-in and check-out and happy to answer any of my questions about the area and life in Auckland. The house is beautiful and spacious in a very safe neighbourhood that is close enough to the city whilst remaining quiet and in walking distance of some high street shops and cafes. Transport links to the city and surrounding areas are great. I chose to get a Super Shuttle form the airport and this worked very well. Also to mention that Judie's co-host Roanne is lovely too, interesting to chat to her and full of great advice about NZ / Auckland! All in all, I very much enjoyed my stay here and would consider returning in future. I would definitely recommend this to anyone coming to Auckland.

Great stay. Beautiful house with lovely facilities and very well kept. Comfy single bed, plenty of wardrobe space and privacy. Judie and Jodie were very accomodating and are interesting people. Only minor issue is no curtains on small ceiling windows. Easily fixed with an eye mask and not a problem if you get up early. I highly recommend a stay here. Feels like home

Perfect description in the listing. It really is a snug room in a beautiful home. The location was perfect for me, and it is such an easy place to get to by public transport from the airport. And Judie is a great host. I felt so at home during my stay. I do hope that the room is available the next time I go to Auckland.

I had a great stay at Judie's. It was just what I needed. Great Location! The house is lovely. I ended up staying an extra week on top of what I booked as I was waiting to get into some rental accommodation and things took longer to get organised than I had anticipated. Judie was very helpful in accommodating me. I ended up staying in all 3 rooms that Judie has on offer. The snug room is surprisingly roomy. Its just off the lounge room. The other single room is downstairs and also quite roomy. The queen bed in the ensuite is extremely comfortable! Thanks Judie!

I had such a lovely stay at Judie's place. She gave me excellent instructions on how to get there and what to do if she wasn't home that made me feel very welcome. Her place is beautiful - very tranquil - and it's in a lovely area of Remuera and very close to the city, easy to get everywhere! I had a great time chatting with Judie and the other Airbnb guests who were staying there at the time and look forward to hopefully staying there again sometime :)

The perfect snug room for what I needed for my stay in Auckland, and I will definitely be back. Trains and buses just around the corner. Gorgeous environment and a warm and friendly and well-organised host. Thanks Judie
