Our house provides a warm, relaxed, human and pet friendly environment for all those have stayed and will stay with us in the future.
We have a beautiful garden, 2 dogs, 3 cats and each other, so altogether, its never a dull moment.
Our location is close to the beautiful bush and provides the opportunity to live in a quiet neighbourhood with the birds tweeting and the insects singing.
We welcome guests who are coming to New Zealand with a smile on their dial and a positive outlook, who are excited about this adventure and just want to relax, unwind and enjoy our special piece of paradise.

    Maryna joined us and filled our home with good conversation due to her extensive knowledge and interesting personality. Like a walking encyclopaedia, she is not dull. She's also very helpful and courteous and it was our pleasure to host her. We wish her all the best in her next endeavours and hope we will all stay in touch.

    Alison is welcoming and make her best to make us at home, even if there are some rules to respect. You really have to like animals in Alison's house to come, and everything which come with them. Alison is really nice and helpful.

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) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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.

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.
