You are welcome to share the main lounge with large LED TV (sky) and sound system. We also have a separate lounge, which includes a TV & home gym, with weights, cross trainer & stationary bike, all of which you are welcome to use. Use of laundry facilities.
Relax outside in the sheltered courtyard, with BBQ available for your use, or enjoy a quiet drink on the front deck & watch the sun set over the trees & city.
The outdoor spa (Jacuzzi) is a great place to relax & enjoy the sparkling night sky.
We share our home with 3 friendly 4 legged family members. Monty, the Jack Russell Terrier & Misty & Simba- Burmese cats. So, if you like animals, you’ll feel right at home.
There are many beautiful walks, including the Orakei basin walkway, which is a lovely track around the Orakei Basin through bush & reserve & along a boardwalk.
Very centrally located with easy access to CBD, beautiful Mission Bay & beaches (10 minute drive), parks, shopping centres, bars, restaurants, cafes......
Picturesque 15 minute stroll to train station (or a 3 min drive to the station's free carpark) which is only 1 stop from Auckland City’s Britomart Station, or head south 4 train stops (or a 15 minute drive) to Sylvia Park, NZs biggest shopping centre. Several bus routes close by servicing Mid Town and Downtown City, the very fashionable Newmarket, beautiful Mission Bay and beaches, with one stop 100m walk from home.
Less than 2 minutes walk to delightful local shops, including the lovely Maple Room restaurant & bar, Benson Rd Deli/cafe/restaurant, dairy, bakery, hairdresser, beauty therapist, gift shops, florist. A 10 minute walk takes you to Remuera Village, with a great friendly local pub, and more restaurants/takeaways, a wine shop, and array of other retail stores.
We are a friendly, social, professional couple with five young adult children, all of whom are now scattered around NZ & the world.
We love travelling and meeting new people, and we enjoy helping others experience and see the very best that New Zealand and Auckland has to offer and are happy to provide whatever hints and guidance you would like.
We look forward to welcoming you into our home.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • This was my second time booking an extended stay in this room with Carolyn and Glenn. Their home and the room is lovely. Their house offers a relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful neighborhood. I met several previous AirBnB guests of theirs who stopped by on occasion for social visits. This in itself speaks volumes of what gracious and fun hosts Carolyn and Glenn are.

  • I had an excellent Airbnb experience, while staying with Carolyn and Glenn. They are both gracious hosts and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable during your stay. Their home is beautiful, clean and in a great neighborhood. The room is exactly as presented in the pictures and description. I highly recommend this house for your stay in Auckland!

  • Carolyn and Glenn (and their family) were the best hosts you could wish for! I felt really welcomed and at home. They went out of their way to help me with different "problems" for example buses/trains and did their best to make my stay great! I would totally recommend a stay at Carloyn's and Glenn's, you will not regret it :)

  • The room in Carolyn and Glenn's house was just perfect for us. It was superclean, the bed was big and comfy and we practically had out private bathroom with nice hot shower. For our little son they provided everything we needed on top!
    Glenn and Carolyn were so friendly with us - we felt so much at home! Also, they had great insider tips for AKL!
    Thanks a lot, mille grazie, vielen Dank!

  • Carolyn and her family were warm, friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was lovely and sunny with a comfortable bed and nice cotton sheets. We were offered lovely food for breakfast and felt very relaxed and at home. The shower is great. Nice quiet area near shops and an amazing pizza shop. What more could you ask for.

    November 2013
  • Had an awesome time while in Auckland thanks to Carolyn and her family. The room was comfortable to go along with a beautiful view of Auckland. Transportation was a breeze, it only takes a few minutes to walk to catch the bus. Monty is hands down the coolest dog I've met! Expect a wonderful, charming time when you book this place!

  • It was a real pleasure to share three weeks with Glenn and Carolyn! The welcome was very warm, I felt very well at the beginning. I had a wonderful stay, they really treated me like a family member, I am even part of the weekend with them! They advised me on places not to miss in New Zealand and helped me plan my trip! I truly enjoyed talk and spend time with them, I will see them again for sure! I really recommend them, they are great!

  • I really loved Carolyn and Glen's house. They were great host, very friendly and easy going. The house was exactly as described and more, the room very spacious with its own little lounge. I would recommend their place to anyone, very clean, quiet and relaxing. Everything you need was there, had my own keys to come in and out as I wished. I would definitely stay here again .

  • So, staying with Carolyn and Glenn was the best way to start an adventure in New Zealand :) We felt at home from the moment we walked in the door. Besides that Carolyn and Glenn really went out of their way to help us with all sorts of tips and pratical advise. 5 stars no doubt!
