Description

The space

Sunny townhouse with one small and two large double bedded rooms,one of which has the option of an en suite bathroom. The small bedroom is more suitable for single people or couples for short term stays. This listing is for the large bedroom which can be booked with or without an en suite bathroom and there is an additional charge of $30 per night for the bathroom otherwise there is access to a large shared bathroom.

Guest access

Guests have access to the living room and the garden. When the weather permits it is possible to have breakfast on the deck in the garden.

Interaction with guests

We are around during the day and can offer advice/help about what to visit where to eat while you are in Auckland.

The neighbourhood

This is a quiet,leafy suburb of Auckland, just 10 minutes away from the vibrant city centre by ferry from Bayswater Marina which is a 10 minute walk(4 minute bus ride) from our house. There are 3 safe beaches within a 2 minute walk from the house and this area is very popular for sailing, paragliding and kite surfing.

Getting around

We are ideally situated for public transport:
10 minutes to the city centre by ferry and a bus meets each ferry to drop off 2 minutes from our house. There are buses from this bus stop to Takapuna, the city centre and the historic village of Devonport. There are also reliable taxis that serve the area.

Other things to note

We have a very friendly ( but bossy!) dachshund in the house.
As we offer bed and breakfast we do expect our guests to be out of the house during the day to make the most of what Auckland and the North Shore have to offer. We offer our guests free access to our bicycles and helmets to explore this beautiful and historic area.

We've loved it so much (read our previous review) and decided to change plans and stay few more extra days with Julia and David. Hope to visit them again one day.

This was our first place to stay after arriving to New Zealand and Julia & David made us feel like being at home almost instantly. Complementary (huge) breakfast was a cherry on the top. Location is 20 min. away (10 min walk to ferry + 10 min ride) from downtown Auckland and we loved the combination of quiet Bayswater and busy Auckland. The biggest win - room had the best bed we've slept on, and we travel a lot! Thank you again Julia, David and Percy for your help and hospitality.

We originally booked in for 2 nights but loved it so much we stayed for many more! Julia and David made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home and couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The breakfast was really great and we made very good friends with their lovely dog. We'll be staying again on our return visit to Auckland.

The room was fantastic. Lots of space for storage, a desk, and the bed was really comfortable. Julia and David are absolutely wonderful and helpful, and breakfast was very good too. There are no restaurants or shops nearby but for me that was a good thing because it makes it a really quiet neighborhood. However you can still get to those places by walking. To get to and from Auckland's city center is even easier, the Bayswater ferry will leave you there in exactly 10 min.

It is nice clean and spacious place. I love a lot of nice details in the house decoration. They make the house full of taste. The breakfast is great, with fruits picked from own garden, nice garden setting. Julia loves to chat with you. Her husband Devid is also very nice and full of British humor. You will find your own reasons to love their place.

Julia's family are all very friendly, gives us much help, midway accidentally broke a glass, we feel embarrassed, Julia and her husband always comfort us say it doesn't matter, just a glass. Have a lovely dog in the home, we live here for 4 nights, is that I live all of the home stay facility inside one of the most comfortable, the room is very clean, very warm, can live in the journey to the house, like back to the home every day, every morning Julia give us share very healthy breakfast, when we leave, also can drive us to the dock, very warm. The next time came to Auckland, I also will come to live here. Sincerely to recommend you the house. Julia 一家人都非常的友好,给了我们太多的帮助,中途不小心打碎了一个玻璃杯,我们觉得特别不好意思,Julia和她先生一直安慰我们说没关系,只是一个玻璃杯。家里还有一只可爱的小狗,我们在这里住了四晚,是我住的所有民宿里面住的最舒服的一次,房间非常干净,非常的温馨,在旅途中能住到这样的房子,每天就像回到了家里,每天早上Julia 都给我们分享非常健康的早餐,我们离开的时候,还开车送我们到码头,非常热情。下次过来奥克兰,我还会来这里住。真心诚意地给大家推荐这个房子。
