Very good location、close to Parnell st. Room was nice and cozy,especially the living room was excellent. Marie is great host, she adviced and helped me a lot. When I overslept she called a taxi for me. パーネル通りは車や人も多くて夜でも安心して歩けました。マリーの家はパーネル通り沿いではありませんがすぐ近くです。ゲストとの会話を楽しむ方ですが私の英語力では困難でした。

I booked Marie's place for my son who recently moved to New Zealand. I wanted him to have contact with someone who knew the area and could be helpful. He said Marie was fantastic. Very warm and welcoming. She made him feel right at home. Highly recommend her.

Marie is an above and beyond host who ensures the stay of the guests are as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The location is amazing and I would personally recommend this to anyone.

I stayed at Marie's place for one week. Marie kindly let me check-in slightly earlier upon my arrival on Sunday evening and from the time I arrived I felt like it was my home away from home. Marie is an excellent and flexible host, who goes the extra mile with all of her guests. Marie provided excellent local information of things to see and do and places of interest to visit. Marie introduced me to not just her close fiends, but also some members of her family, as well as some evenings cooking a meal for me, which she certainly never had to do. Marie even took me out to dinner at one of the lovely restaurants in Parnell Village, Jade Room (Thai cuisine). I cannot recommend Marie's place enough and I am certainly planning my next stay with her very soon and from this experience can say that she is now one of my dearest friends. Kelly Ann xxx

Excellent stay. Spotless and comfortable accommodation with warm and welcoming host. Beautiful views down towards the sea from the balcony. Quiet location but short walk (literally 1 street) to cafes, bars, restaurant and shops and a 10 min walk to CBD. Will hopefully return in future!

Marie User ProfileMarie is a superhost.

I'm a semi retired traveler myself and now feel I'd like to share my home with other fascinating people that are doing what I have done for the last 10 years....... TRAVEL.

My home is suitable for the more mature singles or couples, and it's also great for Airline staff when flying into Auckland for a night or three.....

I am also interested in sharing with you, what we have to offer in the Auckland area,.also many ideas about what to see and do if travelling the rest of New Zealand.

When you confirm a booking, if you advise me on what you would like to experience, I'd be able to assist you with ideas..

I look forward to meeting with you and having you stay.

Thanks Marie.
