We are three working professionals (one Kiwi and two Malaysians) living in East Auckland with a dog. Most of us are away from home office hours and beyond. Our dog stays outside the house when his masters are out. He is kept well out of reach while guests are in the house.

We have a four bedroom family home in a cul de sac quiet area where you could relax and put your feet up, a home away from home. The closest suburb is Botany Town centre, less than 5 minutes drive or a 15 to 20 minutes easy walk. Auckland city is a 35 to 40 minutes drive north and airport is 30 to 35 minutes drive south. We are close to eastern and buckland beaches, Howick and the nice coastal suburb of Maraetai. Lloyd Elsmore walkway leading to the creeks is a 10 to 15 minutes walk from home.

We have a spare fully furnished cosy room with SkyTV. Toilet and shower are shared with two others, just a couple of steps from the bedroom. Kitchen is shared and there are two dinning areas and two lounges.

We provide a ingredients for your do-it-yourself breakfast in the practical kitchen, making it a home away from home, choice of Asian or international gourmet. There is an option to dine with us some nights for a Kiwi homecook meal, Malaysian feast or a Kiwi BBQ (additional cost applies). If you are a foodie, you would love to feast with us some nights during your stay. For guests staying longer than 14 days, we offer a free dine in with us. You can check us out at http://kiwihomechef.com

If you are a single adventurer looking to stay for a few days or more and wish to do a little bit of driving around the city and beyond, look no further.

PS We have a bike for use at a charge.

    From day one everyone in the house was very welcoming and friendly.
    Arriving from Melbourne to spend time here working they made me feel at home from day one.
    We have all shared some great meals and times together.
    Toby (the dog) is friendly and accepting....Will miss them all....

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 250 $£€ 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.
