About the Area
My house is located on the west side of Auckland and a safe suburb called New Windsor. Easy access to bus stops (Route: 24R or 24B to City Centre) which is located a short walk away from our home.
It's about 20 minute drives to the CBD and a few minutes drive to a train station and bus station and there are lots of bus options using this station. Only a short 15 minutes drive to the airport.
Please note: Recently, on Friday nights one of the new neighbours has been making noise. We are in negotiations with the landlord for some solutions.

Farzana was the best host mother you could imagine. From the first moment, she took good care of me, showed me everything and made it very easy for me to arrive and live in a foreign country like New Zealand.
She was always very nice and sociable. I never had any problems with Farzana and always felt at home throughout my stay.
That's why I can and will recommend a stay to anyone. I am very grateful and glad that I decided to stay with Farzana.
Absolutely worth every 5 heart review!
I could not have picked a better homestay host for my time in Auckland!
Farzana is extremely kind! She gave me recommendations on where to visit, as well as made me feel at home, and made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed!
Her 2 cats are absolutely sweet and loving too! (Especially Simba hehe) and I will miss staying here!
If you come across Farzana's homestay, don't be hesitant to book!
Thank you so much!!
She was so kind even though I caused her a lot of trouble.
I stayed two weeks. Farzana was very kind & caring. The house is quiet, clean and the location was perfect. I enjoyed my time. She gave me good advice which was handy. A Bus station is close and you get a parking if you need. I only can recommend this place further.
Thanks for your hospitality Farzana.
