Verity is the person who is genuine and looks out for people. I have had a very enjoyable time here,happily traveling from home every day before school and happily returning in the evening in anticipation of Verity’s rich dinners! Every day here has been a great time! Thank you to Verity, Karl, Jezz, Poppy for all the fun this family has brought me and the warmth of the roommates I’ve had here. Thank you all!
Verity is the most gorgeous, elegant, warm-hearted and clean homestay host mother I have ever experienced. We all love her and spending a wonderful time here. A family full of joy and Poppy and Jazz are also very cute!

We had a wonderful stay in this house when we first arrived in New Zeland! Verity and her husband have been really welcoming and helpful with us :) we had good time talking with them! They take care of there guests so you must feel like at home. The room was very confortable and clean, as all the property! Thanks a lot Verity
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
We couldn’t imagine a better place to spend our first days in New Zealand, we really enjoyed our stay with Verity and Karl. They helped us and gave us great advices to start our new adventure. We really feel like home and that’s definitely what Verity wishes for all her guests! It was a pleasure to meet you guys and we’ll definitely miss you, Jazzy and Poppy…

Verity Karl and Jazzy were the best hosts. A perfect intro to Homestay. They were so welcoming and helped us with all sorts that we needed for our travels. Hopefully we will be returning when we are next in Auckland!
