About the Homestay
Prime location!! Straight and easy run to the airport. Just a few minutes on the bus to nearby Eden Park.So central to the city centre.Bus stop just outside the gate.We have a freestanding studio which is self contained and separate from the main house.It has its own bathroom, kitchenette and own private deck.
We live in a 1920s bungalow.It is a big house and we have two rooms for guests. There is a shared bathroom .Lots of shops around us, supermarket, shopping mall and restaurants galore.We both love reading and travelling. I love gardening and enjoy the fruits of my labour.
We do take in guests at short notice, if we have room available.
We have really enjoyed having people from different parts of the world to stay, and have shared jokes and food and stories. So looking forward to the next lot of lovely people. You are most welcome.
Dinners. Because I love cooking, I am happy to provide dinners at a minimal cost.I cook mostly stir-fry, Chinese, Indian curries, Roast meals and just about anything else that people fancy.Feel at home to ask.
No loud music, as we also have very quiet neighbours.

Very easy to get to airport and city and very nice and friendly people
Victor and Rosemary made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to be helpful. We stayed in a comfortable room with own bathroom and kitchenette. Location is very convenient for the airport and it is easy to catch a bus into the city (important when wine tasting on Waiheke Island)
Welcoming and friendly hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. Clean room. Maybe one mattress a little too soft for an adult but would suit a child fine. Very convenient for airport.
Für mich konnte es als Alleinreisende nach meiner Ankunft auf Neuseeland gar nicht besser losgehen, als beeing with Rosemary and Viktor. I felt so welcome and comfortable in their house. They See both very frienndly and helpful people. I was really happy to stay there. Thanks to Rosemary and Victor!
Thanks to this both lovely persons. We really enjoyed staying in their tiny room beside their house. It was comfortable, quiet and we had our own bathroom. I really can recommend them.
Great and perfect .
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Rosemary and Victor it is very nice people, accommodations were fantastic.
Thank you very much that I could stay for a few nights in a beautiful ambiance.
I've been amazed by this trip with the truly astonishing & beautiful sights of New Zealand & most importantly the hospitality of people around especially from my hosts "mama & papa" Rosemary & Victor! They have been very accommodating and helpful during my stay here and the house just feels so cosy and warmth-of-a-family. Always enjoyed my chat with them and playing around with Benji, Sweetpea (really adorable members of the house). Thanks God I chose a great place to stay for this trip.....quiet neighbourhood, near to city area and shops, helpful hosts and a nice room to myself! Can't ask for more.... Cheers!
