Staying with Charlie and Kelly and two adorable children were a perfect experience. They are super helpful and friendly. The room is lovely and tidy with anything you will ever need in a homestay. I really enjoyed the backyard which is always filled with sunshine. The neighborhood is nice and quite, with easy access to the city--the bus stop is just 3min walk. I really enjoyed my stay with them and I've already started to miss the lovely house I spent one month in and the lovely people in there. Highly recommended!
Charlie and Kelly are wonderful hosts, with two very delightful, charming children. I could not have expected more from a homestay. They went beyond my expectations by welcoming me into their home as part of their family; I felt very reassured having them around, particularly as I was a female student travelling on my own in New Zealand. My bedroom and own bathroom were perfect for my stay. I would very much recommend to other students in my position. They are situated near One Tree Hill which has a beautiful view of the whole of Auckland (particularly at sunset) and a lovely park perfect for a run. Thank you for a lovely stay C&K - you made my experience in New Zealand enjoyable and worthwhile xx
I had a really comfortable time staying with Charlie & Kelly. Their home is lovely and they have two awesome children. It was a real treat to be able to have the use of a bathroom all to myself. I highly recommend single travellers (especially girls) stay with this family.
