The space

This 83sqm apartment has polished floors, original native Kauri wood beams and exposed brick wall features over 2 floors. Located in the historic 'Carlisle' building is light and spacious, and recently painted and refurbished with furniture & fittings.
Features and amenities include: a full kitchen with gas stove-top cooking an oven and all conveniences; linen & towels; gym/ pool/ tennis court; Netflix (as well as access to other media apps); high speed wireless internet with unlimited data download - and landline phone with unlimited free local calls; complimentary car park suitable for small to medium sized vehicles; and a great library.
Occasionally on Friday and Saturday nights there may be a little foot traffic which could disturb light sleepers. There is also the usual shared building noise you would normally expect with inner city apartment living.

Interaction with guests

We’re always happy to take a call or come in and fix/ sort something out. We also provide guests with a welcome note which tells them all about the area and troubleshoots any issues they may have staying in the 'Carlisle.'

Other things to note

* Check out is by 10am on the last day of booking. Check in is 2pm.
* You can request different times and we will do our best to accommodate them, but please note, we usually have full occupancy so this may not be possible if we have a same day departure and arrival booked. However we normally should be able to store your luggage while we get your apartment ready.
* If you are arriving early and definitely want to get in to the apartment right away we recommend that you book the night before.

Great apartment right in the middle of town, easy walk to lots of great resturants and bars. Apartment was lovely. The only downfall is the street noise. As the apartment is at street level and is not double glazed. We stayed 4 nights and obviously Friday and Saturday had the most noise. Aside for this, which is somewhat expected in such a central location the property was great.

This place was ideal for the 3 nights we stayed. Great location, perfect size and amazingly easy to book last minute (following another accommodation hick-up). Peter and Nicola were super quick to respond to any questions we had and the apartment felt lovely and homely. Thanks for having us, we would certainly highly recommend this accommodation for anyone that is in need of a central city getaway.

Hi, I'm Peter, an actor based here in Auckland. I also work in Australia - Melbourne is my second most favourite city! My other passion is teaching acting, and I also do occasional travel writing. I have three young children (pictured a few years ago with me in Thailand) and a wife, Nic. We’ve owned two apartments in the historic Carlisle building in Auckland for ten years now, and when we can we stay the odd night to get a break from the kids, so we know the building and area well. We can thoroughly recommend the apartment and tell you all about the area if you'd like. We're hands on and helpful and only 30 minutes drive away: nothing is too much trouble. We hope to meet you soon!
