Betsy and Leigh's place is fantastic - beautifully furnished, spotless, beautiful views down the estuary, quiet and secluded. Betsy and Leigh are so friendly and welcoming. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay there and I would recommend it to anyone.

I (we) stayed at the place for almost 7 weeks and I really liked it from the first day. It's a little paradise with a lot of privacy and nature. You have a waterview and when it's sunny (even if it's not) it feels amazing to be there and enjoying a nice cup of tea on the terrace. It's a wonderful spot and it's not far from the beautiful Orakei Basin walk. The apartment itself has high-quality appliances and because it has the big glass doors/ windows it feels very comfy and open. Betsy & Leigh are very nice and it was lovely to have a homemade dinner and a glass of wine together. They were always there if we needed something, but they always respected our privacy. They also drove me to my new accommodation, which I very appreciated. I already miss this place. Thank you very much for the wonderful time :). Alex, Mark and Christin

Betsy and Leigh were fabulous hosts. Everything possible was left in the apartment and we have never been left such a well stocked fridge. The apartment is amazing, very modern, clean and well equipped with top quality appliances. We highly recommend a stay at this apartment and we would definently love to stay there again.

The location of the property was perfect for my mother. The property was exactly as described and very comfortable and welcoming. Betsy and Leigh did as much as they could to make the stay pleasant and really enjoyable and were very helpful with extra requests - e.g. providing a landline for local calls. My mother spent three weeks in this accommodation and has no complaints whatsoever. We would definitely recommend Betsy and Leigh to other travellers.

Betsy and Leigh were super hosts and were always there if help was needed. They were very welcoming when my daughter, our grandchildren, and the dog turned up! The flat was ideal with a fabulous view of the Orakei Basin. It was spotless and well maintained, and Leigh was round immediately if there was a problem - eg when the BBQ would not light.

Do not hesitate for one moment to book this delightful apartment in Remuera. It is situated in a stylish suburb with an easy bus route into the city centre. In fact I chose to use the bus rather than my hire car. The apartment is full of clever design features and is equipped to a standard on a par with many 5 star hotels I have stayed in. Betsy and Leigh are great hosts and great company. Betsy was kind enough to take me on a guided tour of the area and invited me to accompany on her morning swim at a lovely local beach. I cannot imagine a better base from which to explore Auckland and I would not hesitate to book a return stay.
