Description

The space

We are in a highly sought after area of Auckland, sunny, huge gardens, historic houses, safe streets in walking distance to fashionable shops, bars and restaurants. We are a creative couple, both working in film and television who love to host people. Our home is an original small wooden house with light, sunny indoor living areas flowing out to an additional outdoor lounge, a favourite space, and a huge tropical garden.

As a guest you are welcome to keep to yourself, or make yourselves at home in our living areas. Curl up and read, or enjoy a wine / coffee on one of our sofas, or hang outside on our deck, with its under cover lounge, opening out to our lush garden. The bathroom is shared, with a luxurious bath and high pressure water shower. You are welcome to make use of our kitchen and laundry facilities. A simple breakfast is available in a help yourself style: homemade muesli and toast, tea and coffee. Your own room has a beautiful view of the front garden, a comfortable king size bed and a small table where you can make use of our high speed fibre optic wifi internet connection.

Your hosts Deb and Amanda are happy to recommend places to visit, and places to eat.

We are five minutes walk from the boutique West Lynn which has intimate and stylish bars, a couple of excellent restaurants, NZ designed fashion stores, an organic food store, an independent book store amongst other things. The neighbouring suburb is Ponsonby which is a busy hub of bars, cafes, top eateries, and fashion stores, and from Ponsonby it is a 5 min car journey to downtown Auckland where you can enjoy the harbour side restaurants and bars, or take a ferry trip to Devonport or Waiheke Island.

We are also a 5 min stroll to Western Springs Park and Lakes, host to international outdoor music gigs, and where you can peek through to the free ranging elephants at the neighbouring modern zoological park (no cages).

By car we are 10 mins from the Herne Bay beaches, and Pt Chevalier Beach and 20 mins from West Auckland bush walks.

For sports fans we are close to Eden Park stadium, home to rugby and cricket.

We have a pet - a 4 year old West Highland Terrier-Toy Poodle cross. Her name is Pipi and she is extremely friendly.

Guest access

You are very welcome to make yourselves at home in all our shared spaces: inside lounge, outside lounge on the deck and you are also welcome to use the kitchen and laundry.

Getting around

There are two bus routes which will take you into the CBD and down to Auckland's harbour. One bus route is a 2 min walk from here, the other is a 5 min walk and goes via Ponsonby. Downtown Auckland is a 10 minute car journey. The inner city beaches of Herne Bay and Pt Chevalier are 10 mins by car in the other direction, as is Eden Park, home to rugby and Cricket. If you have your own car our street, Sherwood Ave, has ample free street parking.
Auckland airport is about 30 mins by shuttle ($48 for two people)

As complete newbies to air bnb, we were quite apprehensive about what it would be like. However, we had absolutely nothing to worry about, thanks to a really lovely experience at Amanda and Deb's beautiful and serene home. Amanda hosted us with her adorable sidekick puppy dog, Pipi, as Deb was working away. We felt at home straight away, enjoyed the open plan living room/kitchen/nook/garden/decking with hammock. The room was as comfortable as it looks in the pictures and we had everything we needed for our 10 night stay. Breakfast was delicious and homemade with unlimited teas/coffees. Amanda was very helpful in getting us orientated to the Grey Lynn area and Auckland in general, with lots of pointers for local arts and festivals. Really enjoyed the evenings out, as well as the evenings in chatting with Amanda.

A quiet and lovely house with a nice garden view. My boyfriend and I stay there for three days, Amanda was very friendly, she shared how to practice Pipi (a cute poppy) with us. Surely we delighted to stay there again if we travel to Auckland next time.

Amanda and Deb were very welcoming, opening up their home as if we were family. The location is perfect should you want to attend an event at Western Springs Stadium; only about 5 mins to walk there.
