We live in Auckland central, just two blocks back from the major thorough fair of Dominion Road. We are looking to host people who will be relatively self sufficient, and take up all the great opportunities to get out around where we live. All ages welcomed but must be mature and considerate of a 8 yr old boy we have on weekends and take care of our newly renovated home. We also have a new baby born October 2015- the guest room is well soundproofed and he is a really good quiet baby so far!

We are walking distance from the Eden Park stadium, so if you are an All Blacks fan... this could be for you. We are both heavily into sailing, and could help get you on the water if that's what you're into.

The bedroom is fully furnished with drawers and a closet and your own TV in room. The kitchen / dining / living is all open plan. The main bathroom would be all yours, except on weekends sharing with 8 year old son.

We have a great back deck and yard for kiwi BBQ!

About the Area

The house is located two blocks off Dominion Road, now known as the "china town" of Auckland. Also two blocks in the other direction is Sandringham, a district that is very strong influence of India. Both are major transit links with good busses (including one direct to the airport) and our road is on the cycle route to town.

We are also just a 10 minute walk to the St Lukes Shopping Centre (one of the biggest in Auckland) and 15 minute walk to the Kingland Train Station.

    Very friendly hosts. Made us feel very welcome into their lovely home. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, and our privacy was respected.
    Handy location, quiet, in a street of beautifully restored bungalows. Strongly recommended!

    It was absolutely great staying at Kristine's place in Mt Eden. Kristine and Cam were very nice and we really felt us at home. They were happy to suggest things to do in Auckland and we couldn't ask for a better place to stay our two nights before leaving New Zealand. Good area as well. Very nice and clean house.

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.
