    I loved my stay with Beverly, if you are looking for a comfortable home to stay whilst in the Auckland area, you will not find a better place to stay then at Beverly’s home. I stayed for 12 days.
    I loved sitting out on the deck first thing in the morning, listening to the birds and just enjoying the peace and quiet.
    I found the local bus service excellent, the bus stop is just a short walk for Beverly’s. Downtown Auckland is about a 10 mins ride depending on traffic.
    The next town, Birkdale has a good selection of shop and banks. Make sure to visit the Winter Gardens if you love flowers. Also the museums are very interesting and worth a visit.
    Thank you Bev for having me stay with you in your lovely home, l enjoyed every minute and hope to come again one day...

    I've had fantastic time as Bev's guest. She was incredibly welcoming and hospitable, and I never felt like an intruder in her house. The room was spacious, clean, got plenty of sunlight and had excellent views of the surrounding bush and local (very numerous!) birds. Nearby there is a direct bus connection to Takapuna, shopping area and the CBD so commuting isn't a problem if you don't have a car. Overall Bev has been a wonderful host and I wholeheartedly recommend!

    Bev is such a lovely person. I really enjoyed my time at her house. I felt like home during my whole stay.

    The house is very nice, you have everything you need and the neighborhood is just beautiful.

    I would recommend a stay at anytime.

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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
