I was the first return guest to Lesley's and will happily be their first guest to stay for three visits! The room/lounge/bathroom is very private and exactly as pictured. The location is ideal for me visiting for work and near Takapuna's great restaurants. My only disappointment? That I didn't learn about the amazing gelato just down the road by the beach - worth stopping in for! Close to the beach and a beautiful shared-pool at the back of the property.

Thanks for lovely review Hannah. I also appreciate the feedback about the cleanliness. If people don't tell us we don't know, so I will get the cleaners on to that, and will oversee it myself after their next clean. (We tend to get a bit complacent when we have had the same cleaners for a long time).

Lesley's is a beautiful spot close to the heart of Takapuna and only moments from the beach. The home offers great privacy and all the amenities you could require. I look forward to staying again.

My four night stay here was so comfortable, and Lesley made me feel so welcome. She was also incredibly flexible with check in and check out, which helped me cope with some oddly timed flights so much. The lounge was styled with love, and very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious, with a separate shower and claw-foot bath tub, which was a lovely surprise! The bedroom was quiet, had a beautiful view of the pool from its own private balcony, and had all the amenities you could need, including a kettle, microwave, fridge, and heater. The bed was cosy, with a good mattress, pillows and linen, as well as an electric blanket. Milk, tea, coffee and a selection of cereals were also provided to make life easier in the mornings. Even toiletries were provided here. Secure parking was also provided within the gated townhouse complex, which was very helpful as all on-street parking around this area is paid and timed. The location is wonderful - at the very top of the main street, with all cafes and shops on the doorstep, and the beach a stones throw away. It was so lovely falling asleep (and waking up) to the sound of the ocean. The area feels very safe, and is very quiet despite being on the corner of a busy street. One block away from Tok Tok - the best restaurant in Takapuna hands down! Despite the shared hallway, I felt that I had plenty of privacy. Lesley and her husband Dave were so friendly and accommodating. I really appreciate them sharing their beautiful home with me. Can't wait to come back! Thank you Lesley.

Thank you so much for your lovely review Suedy. It is such a good review that it couldnt have been better if we had paid you to do it (just joking of course!!) We would love to see you again and your husband too. I have to to say you are definitely the friendliest guest we have had. Next time we will definitely have a drink together Thanks again!!! Lesley

Hello Chris Thank you very much for your helpful feedback, we do appreciate it. If people just say what they think we want to hear then we never know what we can do to improve. We were unaware of the bed being too firm, but will look at your suggestion of a latex overlay. It is good to know about the broadband too, as again were weren't aware of this. We are probably just too used to it. We will look into upgrading our internet plan. We will let you know the outcome of this, as we would very much appreciate you including us in your accommodation list Regards Lesley
