We had a wonderful stay with Sandy and her family. Check in was quick and easy. They left a packet full of helpful information about Auckland, the bus schedules, some of their favorite places to grab a bite, etc. Their home was central to all the great attractions of Auckland, not to mention their home is quite literally a stones throw away from beautiful mount Eden, and a quick walk to a wonderful street called the village full of great restaurants, a pharmacy, independent book store, etc.
The hosts are so warm and welcoming, inviting us to watch rugby matches with them, and even offered to make us dinner one night after listening to records with them.
If you're looking for a comfortable stay with hosts that make you feel like family, look no further! We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Auckland
