My home is set in the beautiful Awhitu Peninsula, south west of Auckland, with views across the hills down to the sea. Nyumbani (Swahili for home) is full of dogs, cats and a cheerful welcome.

The space

I have a big bedroom with a queen size bed, cupboards and easy chairs, and a smaller bedroom with a single bed and a gorgeous view.

Guest access

You will have access to your own bathroom and toilet. There is also a TV room. You will be welcome to use the kitchen and dining area. You may also use the laundry facilities.

Interaction with guests

I'd love you to relax and feel at home. I'm happy to show you around, take you for walks, or give you information about our beautiful peninsula. My dogs would love to give you heaps of love and accompany you on walks too!
Weather and time permitting, I can take you on my Kawasaki Mule (called Boris) over the hills and down to a wild west coast beach for fishing or picnics. You will also want to experience the world-famous-in-Awhitu long swing!

Other things to note

I'm a Christian and happy to talk about it, but I'm also very accepting of where other people are at.

Suzi's place was up on a hill in the country with the most amazing views. Easy to drive back to waiuku or nearby west coast beaches and the awhitu lighthouse. The bed was comfy and house warm. The bathroom was in the main part of the house, the shower high pressured and hot. Suzy was easy to communicate with and made us feel welcome straight away.

We had a wondefull time in Suzy's home. We found the warmest welcome ever in a very nice house. We find everything we need and much more. Don't miss this place! And the view from the lounge is amazing!! Suzy cooked for us a full english breakfast wich was a pure delight!! I hardly recommend to spend time in Suzy's place!

The hospitality and kindness of Suzy were unbelievable. Felt like a home away from home. A must stay if you are in New Zealand. A respite that was spiritually uplifting and physically relaxing. The views are amazing Thank you so much.

You will be amazed by the spectacular views and the relaxing atmosphere. Susy is the most gracious host. We enjoyed wonderful conversations and exuberant jaunts to the beach in the four-wheeler with the dogs. There is a lot to see in the area - black sands beaches and golden ones as well. It is the type of place that you will want to extend your stay! Be sure to stop by Awhitu Winery!

I must say this is the best Airbnb experience ever. Suzy is warmhearted and helpful. And her house is big and beautiful. The view outside is just like watching a film, pretty fantastic and unforgettable. If possible, I'd come back again and recommend to all of my friends.

What a wonderful stay! Suzy said a lot of the people come for the view and the lovely dog George, but you can't top the warm welcome and open heart of Suzy! She provided us with everything! It felt more like an amazing couchsurfing experience! From the stunning buggy ride to the beach to the excellent breakfast and good talk ms it was just wonderful! Glad that we were the first ones because if people find this hiddeb gem it will be hatd to get a place here ;)

I'm Suzy. I've travelled and lived in many countries, including Kenya, but have lived in and loved New Zealand for some time now. I adore the beauty of this country - mountains, beaches, bush. I'm a portrait artist, specialising in pet portraits in pastel. I'm also interested in helping people with health issues, and am an associate with Usana Health Sciences. I am a Christian and very involved in my community in supporting children and families. I love animals and enjoy the company of George, Jake and Bella (my dogs) and Fluffy and Thika (my cats), plus various chooks, ducks and guinea fowls. As a family we have always enjoyed having people to stay - friends and friends of friends! I even enjoy cooking!
