A home away from home - that's exactly how it felt arriving at Margaret's cosy home. She is really the heart of this place and welcomes you like a friend. After some exhausting travelling I enjoyed this relaxing, quiet and very clean place up on the hill (and a very comfy bed ;) A true hideaway but still close to Auckland. In the afternoon Margaret even showed me her picturesque neighbourhood with the beach close by and provided me with some great advice for my further travel. I can truly recommend Marigolds! Thank you very much Margaret for your hospitality!

Margot was a very friendly and welcoming host who was helpful and informative. Her listing info was accurate and accommodations very clean and comfortable. Margot is a very good host in that she is available for companionship if you want, but also careful to give you plenty of space when you want it. I stayed for two weeks and this was my first Air BnB experience and I had a great time! if I get to visit Browns Bay Auckland again, I would love to stay at Margot's house again. I love to cook and enjoyed sharing a few meals with Margot. Since it is not fun to cook and eat alone, I really appreciated the company. Before going, I asked Margot to get info on wineries and breweries and she prepared a lot of information for me! I highly recommend this accommodation for anyone looking for a comfortable and spacious bed and room and a very kind host! I would also recommend Browns Bay since it is located just 30 minutes from midtown Auckland, but has many great restaurants, bars, pubs, live entertainment and beautiful beaches and stunning views!

My friends tell me that I am a warm and welcoming hostess. I love creating a home away from home for my guests. It is important for me to feel that people enjoy the relaxed surroundings of my hilltop retreat.

To be a great host you have to enjoy people, which I do. I am very interested in hearing about where they have come from and their experiences on the way. My aim is to learn as much as I can about their culture just as much as I can about our own.

I believe that everything happens for a reason, if you get the opportunity take it, if it changes your life let it!! Hence me becoming an "Air BnB Host"
So thank you all for allowing me into your world.

My last guest wrote this in my Guest Book which I felt summed my "Marigolds" Hilltop Hideaway home up well and would like to share with you.
