    Irene was a great host. She is friendly, funny, warm-hearted and goes out of her way to make you feel at ease in her home. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with her and will definitely recommend her to my friends. Thanks Irene for the great time!

    Firstly, I'd just like to say that Irene is a fantastic hostess! I really enjoyed my stay with her. The house is very clean, the bed was comfortable and the food both nutritious and very tasty. The experience was most enjoyable. When I'm back in Auckland, I'll make a point of staying there again. It was quiet and very restful. Thankyou Irene for an enjoyable stay.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
