Hello Everyone,
I live in the land of milk and honey on the east side of Auckland. A safe area close to the Marina to take you to the city by ferry or Waiheke Island . Also near to different beaches, 2 shopping malls close, bus close by.
And a small village-style township called Howick.
I have a lovely and lively cozy two-story vintage house '.There is a fireplace warming up the whole house in winter or cold night. with a lounge down stairs . and outdoor leisure area. so there is plenty of space if you need your own privacy. I have been hosting a variety of different ethnic groups from all age groups for over a decade.plus .
I can collect you from the Airport for a small Fee of $30.
It can be tricky with bus etc .
I look forward to hearing from you.

    Really enjoyed our stay, the room was very homey and comfy. Jewel always made sure we had everything we needed wether it was for cooking, cleaning or supplying us with an army of pillows and blankets when it got colder. The house and Jewel, made our stay in Auckland very comfortable and extremely enjoyable. Would definitely stay there again.

    We had a great time at Jewels house. Warm wellcome, very helpful always friendly. Howick is a great suburb of Auckland to live. All you need is close. Bus connection are great. Jewel offers more then this two rooms at different plateforms, so you will met other travellers at her house, this lets you do a lot of experiences with different culturs. Always would come back to stay here. Thanks for all.

    Excellent hospitality. Accommodation on the average side but renovations taking place. Would stay there again.

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.

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.
