John & Jaqui's Homestay was delightful. They were friendly, warm and welcoming hosts and our room was lovely. We will definitely be recommending them to anyone needing a place to stay in Auckland. Hopefully we'll be seeing them again once we can organise a return trip to New Zealand.
famiglia molto ospitale ma discreta. sempre disponibili per gli ospiti. camera accogliente e bagno privato puliti, colazione eccellente, posizione della casa ottima per gli spostamenti nei dintorni, quartiere tranquillo
We had a very good time staying with John & Jackie, we were made to feel very welcome and they gave us helpful advice for out onward travel.
We were given a super breakfast each morning with plenty of fresh fruit.
Many thanks David @ Mary
They are a very friendly couple and made us feel at home at all times. They helped us with everything necessary to tour the city, we shared dinners and many stories. We recommend one hundred percent and we would return without hesitation.
Jacquie and John are a very charming Kiwi couple: welcoming and respectful.
It is a great pleasure to be guest at their home and at the same time an enriching experience...why only 5 hearts? I would like to add 3 more :-);-)

The location was great, within walking distance of Mission Bay, the aquarium, the park and restaurants. We were also able to walk to a hop on hop off bus stop. John and Jacquie were very accommodating. Breakfasts were wonderful!
A warm welcome and a comfortable room with shared facilities. As we were the only guests it was like having our own en-suite. The property was very conveniently located for walking along the bays, excellent selection of restaurants within walking distance or a short drive. Easy access to the city and Parnell Rise. The continental breakfast was very good with fresh fruit salad and home made jam.
My stay with Jacquie & John could not have been better! They are fantastic hosts -- very easy-going and helpful with directions, suggestions, etc. My room was clean & comfy with a great view of Mission Bay from the 2nd floor window just outside my room. Great walking neighborhood -- 20min walk to the beach, aquarium, and shops. This lovely and interesting couple also invited me to join them for meals -- wonderful food and conversation. I was in Auckland for the World Masters Games, and John (who also participated) accompanied me to the opening ceremonies. I hope to return for my next holiday (if they'll have me). Cheers Jacquie & John!
Amazingly hospitable and warm people!! We had such a wonderful time with our new friends Jacqui and John in their lovely home in such a picturesque part of Auckland.Healthy breakfast, beautiful room and bathroom and buses just across the road.Thank you John and Jacqui and hope to come back soon!
Staying with John and Jacquie was like staying with old friends.
