Staying with Karin, Gregor and Mom was a great joy. Our accommodation could not have been better. It comprised of a large sitting room, a Bathroom with toilet and shower unit, in our bedroom which was complete with walk in wardrobe. EXCELLENT.
The family could not have been more helpful. They are wonderful hosts. We cannot reccommend Karin and her family enough.
Their home is in one of the most wonderful locations, safe, convenient with all services nearby.
Wonderful stay. Warm and friendly family, Karin, Gregor and adorable grandma Oumee. The room in suite is super comfy and quiet, clean and spacious. Nice talking to them too for interesting stories. Totally recommended. And also very well located, from airport, downtown Auckland and the motorway to the south. ***** 5 stars and hearts

Sam Stayed for 2.5 weeks and said he wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Excellent accommodation, very welcoming hosts. Good location for airport and botanical gardens, easy to find from Highway 1.
I received such a warm welcome from Karin & Gregor while staying with them after my arrival in Auckland. They made me feel at home, gave wonderful advice and showed me all the useful places. I would gladly recommend anyone to stay with them.
I was a bit stressed when I arrived and they made me feel relaxed and welcomed. Very up to date with the area and history. They also helped me out where ever they could. They have hearts of gold. Thank you.
Karin and Gregor are wonderful people, always supportive and good at giving advice on what to do around Auckland.
Their house is a lovely place and I felt comfortable from the start. I hope we see again sometime!
