Staying at Verity's is awesome. She is a wonderful host. Her home is really comfortable to stay in - it's the best I've been to. It's interesting talking with the other guests. If you like pets, then this is the place as there are two lovely cats. Verity's home is in a quiet suburb of Auckland, but the bus stops at the end of the drive to take you into the City. Staying with Verity is a good choice for your stay in Auckland.
I loved staying with Verity and David. I was welcomed as soon as I arrived and felt at home for my entire stay.
I will be back to visit soon and miss everyone very much!
David and Verity are awsome! On my first day of arrival, Verity gave a clear and comprehensive orientation of the house. In addition, they are always making sure we are comfortable like we are living in our own home. This is my first homestay experience and I have to say it's nothing but spetacular. If you would like a unforgettable New Zealand homestay experience near Auckland area, I highly recommend to check out Verity and David's place!
Absolutely helpful and lovely couple. We could not have been asking for a better place to stay in our first week in NZ. Xx
Lovely house and rooms! Dave and Verity were incredibly helpful and always happy to help
Great pressure free homestay would definitely recommend top marks all round great couple.
Lovely family, we had fun with them.. highly recommended to stay.
Verity and Dave were excellent hosts. Very warm and friendly family atmosphere. Good location with shopping nearby and bus stop at end of lane. Paid extra for meals which were delicious, favorite was fish n chips on Fridays. Enjoyed spending time with other student guests. We will be sure to remain in touch for the rest of our two year stay and after we return to Canada. House was always clean and we enjoyed a private bath in upstairs room. Would strongly recommend staying with Verity at her location. Thanks, Paul and Cathy
I spend a very good time in Verity's home. I feel good all along my time abroad and feel like a family with them. She is helpful, patient and lovely person. She has 2 cats which are very nice and so cute ! I also improve my English skills because of the lot of time spend together! I recommend her to spend time in Auckland, New Zealand !
L'accueil de Vérity et David fut très cordial et très chaleureux. Nous avons bien échangé au cours des 2 repas pris en commun (Vérity est une excellente cuisinière!) et eu des discutions fort intéressantes.
La chambre était très propre et très lumineuse avec uns salle de bain attenante.
L’arrêt de bus est tout près et permet de rentrer assez tard. L'aéroport est à 20mn et facile d’accès.
En conclusion, un excellent endroit pour passer quelques jours à Auckland.
