Thank you for providing a comfortable warm Cottage so close to everything. Nice to be able to bring my dog along to a dog friendly property for the weekend so near to the city, that was indeed appreciated. Celia made our welcome very easy and even had some homemade hot soup ready for us. The Cottage was very well presented and comfortable with a well maintained and private garden. We had a most relaxing time. If we ever need to come back this way we will definitely book here again. Thanks again. Wallace R Baker

This was a great place for us and our well behaved dog to stay in Auckland - ideal location for our work, with off street secure parking and with great coffee and fresh food available from the Orakei Basin shops (Farro Fresh and a great coffee roaster). Apartment was well set up so we could cook and eat in as we wished. Garden was lovely and sunny on a fine day. We were mindful of noise as we were downstairs below their residence, but while we could hear footsteps from time-to-time, it didn't disturb at all. We will definitely back and I would recommend Celia's place for others.

Celia was helpful and friendly and very good with e mail communication. The accommodation (not "cottage") was clean and had all your needs.

Celia is one of the nicest hosts we've met. She very kindly upgraded us to the main house. Her Mother took us around the house when we arrived. She is a lovely lady. The kitchen had a whole lot of goodies and fruit for us. The fridge had all the basics we needed. The place was exceptionally neat and clean and was very comfortable. Towels were aplenty and of great quality. Beds and pillows were comfortable too. We enjoyed Cricket on Sky and the balcony had great views. Location was handy to shops and a mall nearby.

We absolutely loved our stay at Orakei Cottage! The apartment is beautifully laid out, has a fantastic flow and a brilliant outdoor living area with a great view of the Sky Tower. Celia was fantastic with communication prior to and during our stay. She went above and beyond to ensure our stay was incredibly comfortable! We so appreciated her kindness and the extra effort she went to - from meeting us at her home, to the stocked pantry, to the additional heater she brought to being available to answer all queries. Thank you Celia - we can't wait to stay again! We highly recommend the cottage and Celia's wonderful hospitality to all Air b n b users!! Trust us, you'll love your stay!
