About the Homestay
I am a social person who lives in West Harbour / Hobsonville, Auckland and have up to two single bedrooms available, with your own bathroom and toilet. Our house is open plan with two lounges so we are able to put up an airbed in one of the lounges if necessary. The house is down a right-of-way and has lots of off street parking - so if you have a campervan, no problem! It's a nice neighbourhood with the bus stop 5 minutes walk up the road. We are a five minute drive away from our new shopping centre with supermarkets, movie theatres, cafe's and restaurants, and with medical and emergency centre. It's a half hour drive (off-peak) into Auckland city or you could catch our local ferry or bus. I play competition Ten Pin Bowling, and my hobbie is scrap-booking. Our home is private, with some lovely views. We ask that you are clean and tidy, and hope you have a sense of humour.
Happy to pick up / drop off Auckland Airport depending on time (a fee will apply due to large parking charges).
I am really looking forward to meeting you, and trust you will enjoy yourself in our great city.

About the Area
We have lived in our area for over 20 years and love it. It is quiet, safe, great for walking and within easy driving reach of our wild black sand west coast beaches, or great swimming beaches on the North Shore. Westgate Shopping Centre is easy to reach by the loop bus, or is approx. 20 min walk. Includes cafe's, restaurants, movie theatres, etc. We are 5 min drive away from the Western & Northern Link motorways. Bus stop is 5 min walk at top of the street, to Westgate and link buses. Auckland CBD is 20-30 min's drive off-peak, or take our local ferry directly to the centre of the city.
