The Barn is great! My husband, myself and our 3 boys found this property perfect for our stay. Plenty of space for kids to play, lots of privacy and a great location - a rural setting and close to the motorway. Beds are comfortable and really appreciated the lovely linen. A few little extras made the stay really enjoyable, 2 litres of milk, loaf of bread, pantry basics and a couple of cold beers for us! Jessie and Simon were very hospitable hosts who were there if you needed anything. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location for us needing to go to papakura everyday. The house was well equipped with many pantry basics plus a few more treats like eggs, a loaf of bread, milk and beer! Much more than we were expecting for sure. There were lovely toiletries and plenty of towels. All the linen was really beautiful and everything was so clean. The shower pressure was fabtastic- so says my husband who thinks this is very important. The sky and wifi was a great bonus! Jessie popped over soon after our arrival to make sure we were all set. Their house is close by but still seperate which makes the barn seem very private. There was no road noise. We would absolutely stay again.

The Barn is an amazing place to stay- in the country with lovely views, but close enough to plenty of amenities and only 30 mins into Auckland. Jessie and Simon are great hosts , making sure you have everything you need, plenty of food on arrival and assistance if needed. We had a wonderful 2 month stay and we would return in an instant .

The place is fantastic. The "Barn" is spacious, well fitted and is a great out-of-town location. Everything was perfect. The fridge was full, beds were comfortable, even the weather was ideal. I highly recommend this "Barn".

Jessie's Barn is a great place to stay ! Lovely accomodation in a very quite place. We arrived to a very well stocked pantry and fridge and very much enjoyed the wine and easter chocolates ! Great place to stay when you're visiting Auckland but want to stay somewhere comfortable and quiet.

Going 'off the beaten track' and immersing yourself in another country's lifestyle when travelling makes for a rich and unique experience. My travelling highlights have been when I have experienced another country like a local.

The Barn is close enough to central Auckland to have easy access to all of the conveniences New Zealand's largest city has to offer, however it is the local cafes, cattle over the fence and picking your own fruit from our orchard that will make lasting memories.
