About the Homestay
It's just me in my sunny, spacious two-level '70s town-house with a beautiful private outlook over native bush. We share the lounge, open plan kitchen and dining area and bathroom. Your bedroom upstairs has a Queen bed, large wardrobe, dresser, bookshelf with all bedding and linen provided.
There's off-street parking or if you prefer public transport, bus stops nearby and it's only 3kms to Takapuna beach or city shops, restaurants and entertainment.
It's a modest abode but the company's convivial ;). I'm a well travelled, outgoing, creative professional in my sensational 60s.
My vocation in tour guiding follows one in editorial photography, corporate and travel writing, property renovation projects and gardening. I enjoy hiking, sailing, garden projects and time with family and friends.
I'm happy to show you local haunts or steer you toward other aspects of this wonderful country and city.
Off street parking.

Sorry but no smoking and no animals - human or other! :)
I'll give you a key and we all need to double-lock the front door when leaving the house
You're welcome to use the kitchen but please clean up after!
If you would like to invite a friend over we just need to agree it in advance and being a town house we need to keep noise to a respectable level after 10pm.
I do try to maintain a "shoes off at front door" habit ;) - otherwise, just treat my home as you would your own and enjoy your stay! :).
Your host is a non-smoker.
Smoking is not allowed.
Julia è unica!!! Cordiale, ospitale, Gentile e si è fatta in quattro!!!! La consiglio vivamente! !!
