    Can't speak highly enough of Jenny and Alex as hosts.

    Its home away from home. You can just be you.

    They are always willing to help and go above and beyond than just "Homestay". From showing you shops or sightseeing of Auckland's beautiful beaches, they truly want to just let you be comfortable.

    Very good value for money too.

    5 hearts definitely

    Jennie and Alex are wonderful, friendly and caring hosts who immediately made me feel relaxed. They are calm and down to earth, ready to help with advice if asked, and easy to chat to. Their home is welcoming and very handy to a large shopping mall, under 5 mins drive away. Also their 2 dogs are delightful. Both Jennie and Alex are great cooks and I enjoyed eating many fresh cherry tomatoes from their garden. I will definitely stay at their home again the next time I visit Auckland.

    Jennie and Alex were very pleasant while my son was in Auckland doing an internship. He plans without hesitation to stay again during a future stay. Thank you!

    Alex and Jennie are excellent hosts. They made me feel welcome from the moment I met them at the airport. They provided useful information and moral support that allowed me to find my feet with ease in an unknown country. I cannot say thank enough for being so accommodating when my initial stay of 5 days turned into an extended unknown factor. I highly recommend this Homestay for anyone who needs a home away from home, while in Auckland.

    Jennie and Alex were lovely hosts who made me feel at home from the day I arrived. Nice house in a handy location, just a short walk from all conveniences and easy to catch the bus into the city. The perfect place to spend my first week in New Zealand.
