Centrally located, cosy one bedroom flat with very comfy king size bed. Includes internet, electric blanket, towels and linens. Private deck, gorgeous views of the city and Domain, full afternoon sun, open fire. Has a double pullout couch in the lounge if you need an extra bed.

Please note the flat above is also Airbnb, as a rule guests are asked to always remove shoes and be respectful of the lower flat, but there will be an apartment living level of noise (some walking etc) from above.

The space

Full afternoon sun and a private deck overlooking our back garden, the Domain bush and city. Lots of native birds - and a couple of very friendly hens that lay lovely eggs for your breakfast. You may get a visit from Sophie our wee black cat, but she is a bit shy. Feel free to pick some herbs out of the garden for your cooking.

Guest access

Full access to the downstairs flat. Shared washing line with upper flat. Access to the lower garden. Feel free to say hi to the chickens, they love company!

Interaction with guests

I live just down the road about 1 minutes walk away, so I can easily be available if needed. I am happy to help with any queries and keep your bags for you if you arrive early or need to store them after check out.

Other things to note

IMPORTANT: The flat above is also an Airbnb, they are asked to remove shoes before entering the flat, however an apartment living level of noise is expected (some walking and general living noises), please contact me if they are being noisy above this level.
There is a shared washing line and we will be coming past to feed the chickens in the morning and evening (but will try to be quiet)...

Perfect location! The apartment was cosy and had everything we needed. Vanessa was easy to communicate with and even left us some delicious tomatoes from her garden.

Due to house renovations, we needed a place to stay for two weeks that was near to our home. Vanessa's place was perfect. Well-equipped and a fabulous location, it had everything we needed. Vanessa was warm, friendly and welcoming. We were invited to make the place our own, even bringing our own bed linens and kitchen items. Highly recommended!

Charming flat, in the perfect area for getting around Auckland. Lovely view, deck, garden, and even two sweet hens that laid us eggs! Like living in the country in the midst of the city. Vanessa was helpful and friendly. We really appreciated the coffee and supplies. If we make it back to Auckland we'd love to stay there again!

I loved the place when I saw pictures in the description, when I was glad to see that the place exceeded expectations. Very cosy and quiet. Vanessa even allowed me to grab fresh eggs from the chickens she has

We enjoyed our stay in Vanessa's cute apartment and exploring the beautiful neighbourhood of Parnell. We found the location extremely convenient with buses running to the city centre/Britomart, not to mention plenty of food and shopping available nearby. The apartment itself was well-maintained and had all the essentials you need. Vanessa was a fantastic host who was very prompt with replying to my messages. She was also very acommodating and flexible with our check in and check out times which we were very grateful for. Her mum was also a delight to chat to. We would love to stay here again for our next trip to auckland. Thank you again for having us Vanessa!

The is a great place for someone looking to drop their things and explore aukland during their visit. Parnell is lovely. It is a converted basement apartment and the noise from upstairs and the neighborhood can be quite bad a points, so definitely not ideal if you're a light sleeper.

Vanessa User ProfileVanessa is a superhost.

I am interested in health, wellness and nutrition. I love meeting new people.
I love to travel, love wild west coast beaches, reading, art, and I adore good food.

I have an 8 year old and we have a dog and a cat, a worm farm and chickens. Not your typical city setup, but it works for us!

I feel happy when I am gardening. I would love to be able to grow the majority of our fruit and vegetables - at the moment the garden is not always completely successful (the snails seem to have superpowers) but we enjoy eating our home grown produce (and really, anything that can encourage an 8 year old to eat their veges is great)!
