About this listing
We offer you a 'home stay' experience in our new Karaka Lakes home which is located only 20 minutes from Auckland Airport via the motorway which also offers easy access to other destinations. Your accommodation includes a private double bedroom with your own personal bathroom next door. Note: we can accommodate a 2nd couple in a separate double bedroom/bathroom if required. We are within walking distance to the local lakes which offer beautiful views, local wildlife and stunning scenery.
Your private bedroom offers a queen sized bed with quality Egyptian cotton linen. We provide plenty of hangars to ensure your clothes are kept fresh and tidy and you have your own private bathroom (with shower) right next door to your bedroom. Complete with fluffy white, quality towels, you will enjoy freshening up in your new, modern bathroom.
We are happy to welcome guests to share our spacious home where you will have two downstairs lounges to choose from, an outdoor deck with comfortable table and chairs, a fashionable dining table to enjoy your sumptuous breakfast and we have a good selection of DVDs, CDs, novels and coffee table books to browse.
We also have two fluffy cats and a dog who will 'fill the gap' if you are missing your own beloved fur kids.

Hello and welcome to our home in Karaka Lakes, Auckland, New Zealand.
We enjoy travelling and we have had some marvellous trips over the years to destinations in Europe, Oceania and Asia. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing stories about the wonderful trips they have been on. We also love to cook, walk our dog and relax with a book.
Over the years we have enjoyed staying with people in Home Stays and B&Bs and that's why we have decided to offer you the opportunity to enjoy such an experience. We understand the importance of having a sparkling bathroom and a clean, freshly made bed to sink into. We also understand the need to get the balance right between 'being friendly' and respecting your personal space. Having your own bedroom and private bathroom allows you to enjoy your own privacy whilst also having access to other comfortable areas of our home.
We can help you decide on local restaurants to visit or what local attractions are on offer. We also also provide a drop off/pick up service (subject to personal circumstances and commitments) so you can enjoy that glass of wine with dinner. Feel free to ask.
We aim to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible and we hope you enjoy our home and hospitality.
See you soon!
Janice and Derek
