About this listing
Sunny refurbished house minutes from Pt Chevalier's white sandy beach, a lovely park and cafes. The property is set back from the road making it a quiet and restful place to stay. Offering is 'Bed and Breakfast' and there are many eating places within an easy walk. Buses stop very near this property making it easy for both Personal and Business Travelers to access the Central Business District, Auckland's Viaduct district and tourist destinations. Plenty of safe on street parking available.
The room has a comfy queen size bed with wardrobe space that includes shelves and a place to hang clothes. The view is of the back garden and the room has large windows with a sliding door that opens out onto the courtyard. There is outdoor furniture to use in the summer months. As shown in the photo I can also provide a desk and chair if it is required- usually this sits in the alcove on the next floor up (and is available for you to use), this then creates more space in the room for couple's suitcases.
The property itself is a two story house. There are three bedrooms located downstairs with two bathrooms, the main bathroom is for guests use (I have my own bathroom to use). Upstairs is a lovely open plan living area and a third toilet room. The upstairs living area opens out onto a sunny deck with views to end of the peninsula.
You are welcome to use the courtyard area, relax on the deck or join me in the living room where there is a TV you can use.
A light breakfast is available each day in the kitchen/living area and you are welcome to make a tea and coffee anytime. There are a good selection of cafes and food outlets from 5 minutes to 15 minutes walk in either direction of the property for lunches and evening meals. Alternatively the bus or a car can take you to an array of restaurants bound to suit your needs.
While there aren't cooking facilities available to you, there is a microwave you are welcome to use in the kitchen.
There is a laundromat up the road with a cafe attached for larger loads of washing and this is best option in the winter months for getting things dry. In the other months, as work from home so I am happy to add to my clothes wash a few guest items when I am doing my own washing, feel free to ask me. I have traveled a lot and know it can be helpful to keep washing up to date. At some times you can make arrangements for me to put on a load of washing at a fee (to cover cleaning powder, power and water usage).
I provide towels for use in the house only. If guests want to go swimming at the nearby beach they will need their own towels for that purpose (although I do keep a swimming towel available for guests that are needing to travel light).
Interaction with guests
Whenever possible I meet you on arrival and farewell you. How much we interact will depend on your preference and what we each have happening that day.
Other things to note
I am self employed and work from home, occasionally I have clients visiting for meetings and will let you know my schedule.
On occasion I may have a guest in my private guest room and they will want to use the 1.5 bathrooms available. This has always worked well but do ask me if you have any special requirements and I will do my best to accommodate our needs.
No smoking anywhere on the premises please.
The stated check in times and leaving times can be flexible if no other guests or clients are here.
For stays of longer than 7 days:
1. An additional cleaning fee is required every 7 days which can be arranged through Air BnB site.
2. There is a new laundromat (with a cafe attached) near that you will be able to use. If however I have room in my washing load I may be able to accommodate some items free of charge. Please don't be offended if I cannot offer this service during your stay.
There are no
I am well traveled and know the value of staying in accommodations where breakfast is an option, hosts are welcoming, easily contactable and are willing to be flexible around arrangements when this is needed. This is the experience I do my best to offer my guests. My aim is for people to feel comfortable staying here.
