Self contained studio space located in quiet urban backyard. Shops, Restaurants, Cafes within 10 minutes walk & central Auckland an 8 minute drive. A unique , cosy haven.

The space

This unassuming,compact space, via a rustic driveway access is very comfortable & peaceful.
There is a gas hob, small convection oven & small fridge providing the option of preparing meals. A very comfortable (easy to use) fold down bed allows more sense of space. A great haven to either use as a base or spend time relaxing.

Guest access

The studio is behind the main house & overlooks the shared backyard which guests are welcome to use. This backs on to a park. Guests can park on the street & access the studio via the driveway or if walking, via the park.

Interaction with guests

We aim to leave guests to enjoy the space independently, though we are often around if needed.

Other things to note

A basic shared laundry (washing machine & washing line =no dryer) is available to use.
We have a beehive in a secluded area of the backyard & the small bee family like to keep to themselves.

Studio is located in a very well connected area of Auckland. Plenty of free off street parking. The unit was clean and with all basic amenities. Good stay in Auckland.

We are having a wonderful stay in Penelope and Paul's studio. The room felt like home as soon as we arrived and although it's a small space it works really well. It's light and clean with gorgeous artwork and the stones in the shower are fun. Calling it a rustic urban oasis is the perfect description. I've loved waking up, opening the french doors and letting the light stream into the room and enjoying a coffee looking over the garden in the mornings. Penelope and Paul have been really generous hosts and we enjoyed a glass of wine with them but also really appreciated being left to our own devices. Would highly recommend this Airbnb and if we're ever in Auckland again would love to stay with them again.
