A comfortable double bedroom in a beautiful 110 year old house in an historic village surrounded by a stunning sub tropical garden. We are close to the city by ferry - the terminal is a twenty minute walk or a 4 minute drive away. Within two minutes walk are two great beaches, Torpedo Bay on the city side, Cheltenham on the gulf, fabulous walks and views. Devonport has a wide selection of cafes and restaurants. A second double bedroom is available for people travelling together.

The space

Our house was built in 1905 and is a typical New Zealand Kauri villa with a bay window and fireplaces. We are a 20 minute waterfront walk from Devonport village. Auckland City with great shopping, and the Restaurant Precincts of Britomart and North Wharf is a 12 minute ferry trip. Ferries to the islands of the Gulf call into Devonport regularly. A public Golf Club is within a 5 minute drive. Devonport is a great place for an overnight stay, weekend away or an extended holiday.

Yvonne and her husband are very sweet and lovely. The house is beautiful. It's very quiet and peaceful. We are near the beach which is lovely for a night walk. It was a real pleasure to stay here. Thank you very much Yvonne.

Yvonne's house is beautiful and immaculate. The walk from the ferry is lovely, and the ferry takes only 10 to 15 minutes from central Auckland. I enjoyed the proximity to Cheltenham Beach, a wonderful spot for swimming and sunbathing, and the short ferry to Rangitoto Island provided an incredible day of hiking, scenery, birding, and exploration of lava caves. Devonport features several good restaurants and is as excellent for a holiday as it is for access to the city. The spotless and spacious bathroom was shared with one other guest.

I had a wonderful, wonderful stay in Yvonne's home. It was my first night in the Auckland area after the long flight from LA, and I couldn't have landed in a more perfect place. After the airport bus and shuttle to the ferry, I was in Devonport in no time. Yvonne is a truly fantastic host, very welcoming, super organized, and communication was very easy. The ferry pick up and drop off was extremely helpful, and I enjoyed tea and conversation, and a wonderful walk up the North Head with Yvonne, just nearby. The lovely home is located an easy walk to shops and restaurants. It's gorgeous! The bedroom is plenty spacious and quiet, with a very comfortable bed and nice decor. The sitting area is very welcoming and relaxing, and there is a beautiful backyard and garden. Can't say enough good things. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I'm a mature woman. I have travelled quite a lot over the years. I am interested in the arts, books, cooking, movies and life in general. We are very interested in renovating and preserving old Victorian and Edwardian houses. We renovated and have lived in this house for 20 years. I love living in an historic village. We live a peaceful casual lifestyle with the best of the city and a beachside suburb. During the summer I am outside and swim, walk or garden as much as possible. I couldn't do without books, the beach, fun, family and the occasional holiday away. I would like to go to Vietnam next. As a host I am available, flexible and respond to the needs of our guests. I would love to share the pleasure of this beautiful place with others.
