Jenny was a very welcoming host, I really enjoyed my time here as well as playing with the dogs! Situated very close to the city centre, not too far to walk and close to many different bus routes. Quiet location with friendly host, would definitely recommend!
The perfect quiet place in Auckland, and the best hostess!
Thank you Jenny !
She is a very warm and considerate person and she made her home our home...we had a very pleasant stay and will certainly stay with her again....top lady +++++++
Just a lovely stay with Jenny in beautiful Parnell. We loved the room, bathroom and whole space provided for guests.A very relaxed vibe in a quiet neighbourhood.Nice breakfast and Jenny was so obliging in every way. Buses were available nearby and we enjoyed the short walks to the stops,to Rosies Cafe and Parnell pool. Will definitely be back.
Jenny is very kindly, helpfull and open minded. I enjoyed the quite location, the separate bathroom and the comfortable wide double bed.
Jenny is fantastic. Spacious and very clean apartment. Best breakfast on our trip. Location is perfect.
We had a lovely time with Jenny! She is a really nice and helpful lady who goes out of her way to make your stay pleasant. Her home in Parnell is ideally situated to explore Auckland (my husband and I walked into the city centre in about 35 minutes) and the surrounding areas and is in a quiet, residential area, close to all the cafes and shops on Parnell Road. Our room was great having its own large bathroom, a wardrobe, sets of drawers and a very useful safe. The breakfast was more than ample: cereals, juice, yoghurts, fresh fruit, toast, tea and coffee - more than enough to set us up for the morning. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay with Jenny and would certainly stop there again.
Jenny is a very friendly, kind, generous and helpful person. She really opened her home and made us feel welcome. Every morning the table was nicely set with our breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and the private bathroom big and clean. The surroundings are nice and very quiet. If you don't have a car however and have difficulties walking it might be a challenge since it's very hilly. Public transportation in the area is not so good.
Our stay at Jenny's was short but great. Parnell is a very quiet place, and so is Jenny's.
Room was comfy, and we got all required advice for dinner and a very nice breakfast.
Definitively we would recommend for your next stays in Auckland !
It's been an amazing 5 days stay .. With Jenny hospitality and generosity.. This is the perfect place to stay in Auckland...
