About the Homestay
The longer you stay - the cheaper the rate.
We live in Conifer Grove, Takanini, South Auckland. We have 2 bedrooms available. Our house is 3 bedroom, swimming pool, plenty of parking, nice neighbourhood, close to bus (3mins walk) & train (5-7 mins), shops, medical centre.
We have hosted many overseas visitors over the years and also within our apartment complex in the city that we managed. We have now moved back to our home & miss all the different nationalities. We have hosted people from Germany, Netherlands, Hungry, England, Chile, France, Argentina, Italy, Ireland, China, Japan, Malaysia, Albania, Switzerland, Canada & many more but since they have gone, the house seems empty.
In the summer we do a lot of entertaining on our very large deck with BBQs and just soaking up the summer breezes. Even in the winter, we still enjoy the deck with a little hint of sun.
We do have one very spoilt pussycat that rules our house, so you must like pets.
Must be clean & tidy with a sense of humour.
Single person $270 per week. A couple $330 per week for long stays of 2 weeks or more.
A cleaning fee of $45 will be charged if the room is not cleaned as you found it.
Some dinners included.
Look forward to our next adventurous homestays.

Such a warm and welcoming experience with Anita and Simon. They were always more than happy to help us out with anything that we needed. A real family experience! Highly recommended and will definitely stay with them again and again!!
