You're a 10-15 min walk to CBD (Downtown), beaches, bays and parks, Auckland's famous landmarks (SkyTower, Maritime Museum, Spark Arena, Viaduct, The Civic, AUT, University of Auckland, Princes Wharf), breathtaking vistas and excellent transport options for everything Auckland has to offer.

The space

This is a very central city, private accommodation in a prime location in Parnell, Auckland Central and includes WiFi, as well as access to everything the home has to offer.

Situated in Parnell, perfectly located to access everything Auckland has to offer; it is truly a mid point to wonderful hikes, beautiful beaches, relaxing walks around nearby bays, trendy night hotspots, and delicious restaurants. Everything Auckland has to offer will be very close.

If you're arriving in from another country and need a 'home away from home' while in Auckland, then this good sized room and a good sized bathroom between another room, with toilet, shower, and bath could possibly be the one for you!

Convenient transport is available from the Airport into Auckland City & Parnell. To travel around the City, the Bus stop is 5 mins away at the corner, also Ferries or Trains are just a few min by bus. The property is in a great location with easy access to and from Motorways & free street parking on evenings, nights, and Sundays only. At other times, you'll have free parking for 2 hours, at which point you'll have to move the car to another part of the street for another 2 hours of free parking.

We are happy to accommodate up to three people as the room is furnished with a queen sized bed and a foam mattress which can lay on the floor. Our home is ideal for the more mature requiring sanity & relaxation.

All bed linen and bathroom essentials, etc. are provided.

You also have an open invitation to spend time in any of the shared areas:

The downstairs living room is open with minimal furniture, sofa, a TV (with HDMI and Chromecast connectitivity options), and a desk to work at. Or you can hop outside onto the outdoor deck and work outside if the weather is nice or lounge in the outdoor furniture while grilling up some food on the BBQ.

The garage has been converted into a small gym with all the workout equipment and accessories you need for a good workout.

Feel free to take advantage of nice weather by eating your meals outside and using the BBQ to grill up some meat or veggies.


Our aim it to make your stay comfortable & friendly and make you feel like you're staying with family or close friends.

Luke and Karla are good communicators. We only met briefly as our paths just never seemed to cross. The house is in a quiet area but is a short walk uphill to Parnell with lots of restaurants and interesting shops. The house is warm and the room comfortable. We were very happy with our stay.
