We stayed several nights with Thomas, Violet and Family. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome, the en- suite accommodation was excellent, clean and comfortable, perfect for relaxing. The house has all the amenities you will need, pool and hot tub are great. The guest kitchen was perfect for making your own refreshments, although Thomas did invite us to join them. Violet's loving nature and hospitality is outstanding, one of the kindest individuals we met. Location wise the listing is good, many local coffee shops and supermarkets. Access to Central Auckland easy using the highway. If you are looking for a diverse, cosmopolitan family stay with great conversation and knowledge, look no further. We were sad to leave, and shall definitely return. Thank you Thomas, Violet, Lili and Marco for a memorable stay.

Lovely few days with Thomas and Violet. Very kind and warm hosts. After a very long flight from the UK I felt most welcome. Comfortable ensuite room with all the comforts one needs! One evening I came back Thomas was making REAL rice pudding and I had the pleasure of sampling this delicious dish. Lots of nature reserve walks at the peninsula of which I enjoyed tremendously. Very good Thai restaurant within walking distance too. Would recommend Parani court. Lovely spot. Thank you Thomas and Violet.

Our welcome was made memorable by Thomas & Violet for their marvellous hospitality and generosity sharing in some nibbles and coffee and having a lovely chat. The room with ensuite was very comfortable and well appointed and the kitchenette was adequately equipped with a microwave and fridge. The location was perfect for our 6-day stay which included travel to Auckland's northern locations as well as quick, easy access to the city. Plus the beautiful walk, run, biking facilities just around the corner from the home was spectacular to experience. Highly recommended and we look forward to staying there again when we next visit Auckland.

Honestly a PERFECT stay! I had an absolutely awesome and unforgettable time with my excellent hosts Violet and Thomas. They are both extremely welcoming, kind and incredibly helpful. It is a beautiful house (exactly as pictured) with a really stunning view on the sea. The house is just 10 minutes to walk to the next bus station (30 min to Queen Street by bus). My room and my bed were super comfortable and spotless clean. There was all you need to cooking by yourself in the kitchen. I appreciate that Thomas and Violet made me feel like home and part of their lovely family. Living within a family environment increased my overall experience of Auckland. They did everything they could to make my stay special and really unforgettable. For example they took me out to lunch/dinner with family and friends and to some beautiful sightseeing places and we made a nice (and ambitious :-) bike tour together. This was my favourite place to stay in Auckland and would definitely recommend to anyone, somewhere I would love to visit again. I wish I had more time there! Thank you so much for such a lovely stay! I had a great time!

We're a New Zealand based family, our kids are grown up and well on their ways and are either living at home or close-by.

We are into DIY, biking and going for a walk, tasty foods and catching up with family and friends. We hope to stay healthy as we cruise along in life. We value multicultural experiences, respect, tolerance, credibility and creativity. If you think this sounds like you, we would love to share our comfy lifestyle with you.

We have a comfortable and reasonably large home that caters well for our family and visitors. Each room has internet access, TV and air-con. Our solid home has solar-powered hot water and rainwater utilisation. Beyond that, we have a small indoor pool & spa, a lift to reach the upstairs and an open-plan living area with picturesque views of the Waitemata Harbour. The north-facing terrace and cosy garden with some fruit trees and vegetable gardens are surrounded by pencil conifers and screen planting for privacy and shelter.

We are about a 5 minutes’ walk from the sea and the coastal walkway. One can make it in 15 minutes off-peak, by car, to the Auckland city centre and the other way to one of New Zealand's largest and cheapest supermarkets. The beaches and the rain-forest of the Waitakere Ranges are also within easy reach.

If you are heading to Auckland, get in touch with us and see how we could accommodate you. Until we meet... Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.
