The space

Close proximity walking distance to the city, cafes, gyms, and public transport.

Guest access

A secure undercover car park available in the evenings until 8.00am, if required. The bedroom has a queen bed with own ensuite. Suit a couple or singles. Wifi, television network and DVD's available to watch.

Interaction with guests

I am available as and when required to answer any questions and offer information. I prefer quests who are self reliant and independent but happy to settle them and show them the ropes. I live in the apartment.

The neighbourhood

Perspective Apartments is a big complex, but it is secure and private. A cafe (Marcellos) is on the premises and is open daily for breakfasts and lunches. Most apartments are owner occupied with some rented to professional tenants.
The neighbourhood is safe but caution should be considered while out walking in the late evenings.

Getting around

Public transport is at the doorstep. The Inner and Outer Link buses run every 10 minutes transporting passengers around the city and to the inner suburbs. Getting around is very easy for a visitor.

A 15 minute walk into downtown CBD, to the ferry and Britomart bus/train terminals. 5 minute walk to fashionable Ponsonby Rd and it's vast array of eating places.

Other things to note

As from the 1st April 2017 my fee will go up by $5NZ per person, except for those booked before the 31st January 2017.

I had a wonderful experience with Matewiki. I never expected to be greeted with an offer of gin - a one off, I'm sure! She must have seen the desperation in my eyes... Very close to Auckland central, supermarket, cafes and transport. Welcoming and friendly.

Matewiki was a lovely host and even joined us for a quick coffee the day we left. She made us feel very welcome and the flat was ideally located right on the out skirts of central Auckland. There is a large supermarket at the bottom of the hill about 200yrds away plus off street parking underneath the flats. We had a very pleasant stay; thank you Matewiki

Matewiki was a warm host, who responded instantly to the booking inquiry and managed to accept me to her home within just a few hours. She was super kind, always seeking out how to make this trip the best for me and was very helpful in addressing questions overall. The room and bathroom are clean, with a comfortable bed and beautiful sheets. City-center and harbour are a 20-mins comfortable walk away.

The place is clean. It's so close to CBD, Victoria Park, cafes and grocery. Matewiki is an excellent host and very welcoming. The place location provided is precise. Can't even fault anything about this apartment.

Matewiki User ProfileMatewiki is a superhost.

I am Maori, indigenous to NZ. I'm young at heart, warm, friendly, fun and hospitable. There are a myriad of things I love doing. The top of my outdoor activities are bush & beach walks, I like a round of golf when I get the time and would jump at any opportunity to go sailing. My favourite indoor activities include the of love hot yoga, the gym, reading, writing and movies. I love catching up with friends in my or their homes and in local cafes. I manage a small NGO, a charitable organisation owned by the Mercy Sisters, I have taught English as a second language to international and migrant students, I am also a wedding celebrant and a Life Coach. The 5 things I couldn't live without are - my family, excellent health, my friends, a travel plan and laughter. I have travelled quite broadly but there is still a big part of the world to see. I have been described as "a hostess with the most-ess" by friends, I am a considerate guest.
