Rose and Richard's place was the perfect location for us coming off international flight, its only 15mins from the airport. We arrived late evening and check in wasn't a problem, which made it stress free! The space is amazing! So simple and all the amenities you need. They also provided us with a small bottle of milk, butter, jams and a fresh loaf of bread for our breakfast- it was a lifesaver. Would highly recommend staying with Rose and Richard!

This is a lovely flatlet perfect for a couple. Clean, tidy and very comfortable. All amenities provided eg WiFi & TV Netflix if you wish. On arrival fresh bread, milk and even some locally sourced muesli. The location is perfect for the airport which is 10 to 15 mins taxi ride away. Lovely surroundings. The area is quiet and has a rural feel. Rise & Richard were keen to allow us to use their garden and the hammocks which were brilliant as the weather was great. Rose and Richard were fantastic hosts. They were always engaging for a quick chat and so helpful if you had any questions on the local transport links etc. I highly recommend this flatlet and I would definitely stay again.

Richard picked us up from the airport, and Rose dropped us off at the crack of dawn the following a.m., which was terrific. As a staging post on the way in or out of Auckland this is brilliant - only a few minutes from the airport but not at all noisy, as you are square on to the runway. The accommodation is quirky but lovely - and very intelligent use of a compact space. Downstairs is a kitchen, sitting area, and bathroom, all very well equipped and new, and upstairs (mind your head!) is a large bed with TV. In the evening we walked into the village for dinner, about a mile; you can go along the street (flat) or up over the hill (views). We weren't there long enough to use the outdoor space but what we saw looked very pleasant.
