About the Homestay
I live in this beautiful character villa with one other male flatmate. I also have my 16yr old daughter who stays every 2nd week. We have a single room which is available which contains a king single bed. We would prefer a minimum of one week stay & are keen for long term guests. It would be ideal for a student as we have a separate study that is available for use containing a desk & computer. The kitchen is very modern kitchen which leads onto a relaxing lounge/living area. We also have a fantastic covered outdoor deck with a barbecue which you are free to use. Our back yard contains a pool (which we will pull down in winter). We have two very friendly cats and we love baking so you can help us baking and cooking! Very friendly, relaxed home. We are very centrally located in a very safe suburb. The CBD is only approximately 15-20 minutes by car/taxi.

Simon was the best host I could have asked for! He helped me with everything and was very good company. I enjoyed my stay with him very much.
Simon was a welcoming host and I immediately felt at home.
Simon is so genuine and welcoming, the home is lovely and it’s so easy to catch the bus into the city. Couldn’t have asked for better.
The best host ever, he’s very kind, i felt that i was in my home. The house it’s grate and is very close to the bus and to the cornwall park.
Simon is an amazing host! Very attentive and welcoming! I definitely recommend it! :) thank you Simon!
I spent two months with Simon and it was such an incredible stay! Truly hospitable and a great family that took me in immediately. Helpful, informative, safe, so friendly
Simon and Martin were the perfect hosts! Incredibly helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. Thanks again for your kindness and hospitality!
We would highly recommend a stay here. The location is great for access to local amenities, and if you don't have access to a car the city is a half hour bus ride and it's a regular service. The house is very comfortable, clean and spacious, and you can treat it as your own. Great kitchen too which we used everyday!
Simon's house is in a good central location on the airport route. Good size bedroom and bathroom. I enjoyed my stay at Simon's house and recommend it to others.
Schade, dass es nicht mehr als fünf Herzen gibt. Ich würde sie alle anklicken. Eine tolle Unterkunft in wunderbarer Umgebung mit Panoramablick auf Auckland. Simons Bruder Martin hat uns herzlich willkommen geheißen. Er war super gastfreundlich, hilfsbereit, ein absolut netter Typ.
Martin and Simon were the most lovely hosts, our stay was awesome, Martin accommodated everything we may need during our stay, they were both very welcoming, fun, sociable and interesting hosts with great suggestions for the area. In terms of the rooms - it looks exactly as it does in the photos. There are cafes in nearly every corner of the nearby streets. We used the kitchen very often, which had almost everything you need in order to cook. We will surely try and get the same rooms again when we go to Auckland again. I highly recommend Martin as a host and as a great friend.
