This self-contained flatette with 1 double bedroom, bathroom-laundry and kitchen-lounge, is fully furnished, very attractive, clean and private. Part of a large 1930's bungalow, it has it's own private entrance through French doors from the large low-level deck. The unit has everything you'll need, and there's a good parking space for a car on the driveway. Just a one minute walk to the bus stop and 6 minutes to the train, with 5 stops to the CBD.
The leafy, heritage neighbourhood is surrounded by parks, walks, village centre and mall, and is quiet at night. There are a number of facilities locally (beach, pool, squash, tennis, zoo, transport museum, movies, cafes and restaurants). We are within walking distance of AIT and UNITEC, tertiary education institutions.

About the Area

The self contained unit (next to my home) is in an established, very leafy and peaceful central suburb of Auckland. It's a one minute walk to frequent buses, a five minute walk to the train station and an eight minute drive by car. The village is a 10 minute walk and the mall is a 15 minute walk in the other direction. We are surrounded by parks, cycleways and walkways. There's lots to do locally (cafes, zoo, local, movies, restaurants, beach, mountain).

    Not only is the studio perfectly equipped and has everything you need, the perfect location, 20 minutes to the city center by bus. But above all Christine is an incredible person! For her you are not just a tenant but a person to whom she pays attention...
    I will never forget and maybe see you soon!

    Christine is lovely and very kind host. She always helps me. The place was nice and cozy, it has everything you need. Good location, close to public transport. I would definitely recommend staying here!

    Exactly what I needed. Quaint room with a small alley kitchen with everything I needed and a nice bathroom. As described it's partitioned from her house so its separate, and has it's own door. Nice place, I would definitely come back to use it again. Good for a single traveler or a couple. Christine was a great host, friendly and informative. She has a nice garden and a friendly cat that lives in her side of house but would greet me outside when I'd be coming home in the evenings. Great host, great area, solid location to public transports, great stay.

    Christine was extremely friendly and kind. The homestay was perfect for us. The small induction hob meant we were able to cook small meals and the location is perfect, super close to the bus and train. As well as a mall and village all nearby. As a bonus Daisy is a beautiful and affectionate cat.

    What a comfortable little place in a beautiful neighborhood! Christine is the most lovely host you could wish for- and the cat Daisy too, of course! Everything went really well and Christine was always happy to help, answer questions and give advice. I would definitely recommend. If I ever come back to New Zealand I‘d come here:)

    Thank you Christine for welcoming us. Nice place to stay, close to everything you might need and to the trains or buses to the city. Christine is a good adviser for her customers.

    It was a cosy place in a quiet zone, and Christine was always ready to hand out good advice, abd I felt really comfortable during my stay with her.

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) 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.
