The space

My home is a comfortable and relaxing space where I hope people will feel at home and be able to experience the kiwi lifestyle. I have a very friendly dog named general and a cat named Ike so guests need to be comfortable around animals however I do not allow the animals in the guest room unless wanted.

Guest access

5-10minute drive or bus to takapuna, a great area with shopping, great places to dine out and a very popular beach.
10-15minute drive to Auckland city for great nights out, Aucklands famous sky tower and museum and more shopping.
A bus stop is 1-2minute walk from the house that goes into town.
The great thing about Auckland being a small city is that nothing is ever far away, amazing day trips to beautiful beaches and scenic hot spots are easily available and I'm happy to show guests around and help arrange day trips.
I have lived here all my life so I no all the good places to go.

Stayed at Sophie's because I had a course at AUT. She was really welcoming and gave me directions to get to the campus so I could walk there easily. Was great to have a comfy place to relax after a hard day's studying. The pets are super friendly too!

We stayed for a month with Sophie while we were doing an internship at North Shore Hospital. The commute to work was either a 5 min bus ride or a 30 min walk (to a great sunrise!). We got along fabulously with Sophie, communication was friendly and honest. We felt very much welcome and at home. She has three lovely pets that are all very clean- one very calm dog (extremely well trained and friendly, but won't bother you), one rather shy cat, and a hungry rabbit who lives in the garden. Sophie's house is situated close to the wonderful Birkenhead Domain if you like a good trail run, as well as several other small parks that are very secluded and quiet. The bus stop is just up the road and the 922 will take you straight to the city centre (CBD) in 20 min. An array of shops is just 5 min. away. Highly recommended!

Our stay here was nice! Even though Sophie was not at home when we arrived, the check-in worked quite well. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. As we went to bed very early after our exhausting flight, unfortunately we didn't really have time to talk a lot with Sophie. But she seems to be a warm-hearted and friendly person.

The Sophie's house is very comfortable and she is the same, she was worried about give us the best attention. She is very nice and her pets are very quiet. The house is very near to take a bus, it has good internet, it has all necesary for cooking and washing your clothes. I recommend it. La casa de Sophie es muy cómoda y ella es igual. Ella estuvo preocupada acerca de darnos la mejor atención. Ella es muy simpática y sus mascotas muy tranquilas. La casa está muy cerca para tomar el bus, tiene buen internet, tiene todo lo necesario para cocinar y lavar tu ropa. Yo lo recomiendo.
