Our stay in Auckland was such a wonderful three days with Gerry and Jeannette! This booking was our first of many Air BnB's and it had everything we needed and more! The house is immaculate and the views are breathtaking! We left feeling like we were saying goodbye to family because of how warm and welcoming Gerry and Jeannette were. We really wished we could have stayed way longer and would highly recommend their beautiful home!
My wife and I had an incredible time staying here for 3 nights. The accommodations were perfect; clean and exactly as described. The location is gorgeous and super convenient. Some notable perks were the heated blankets on the bed to keep us warm and toasty, a grand bathroom all to ourselves, and a healthy breakfast in morning gave us the perfect start for our days.
Gerry & Jeannette were very welcoming; we felt like we were staying with family. They were super friendly and fun. Not only did they make the breakfast for us every morning, they also helped us plan our days. Their suggestions were amazing and left great memories.
We would DEFINITELY stay here again!
Gerry and Jeannette were warm, welcoming hosts who went out of their way to make us feel at their beautiful home. They provided a really lovely breakfast and a lot of good advice for our travels after!
Jeanette and Jerry were amazing! Breakfast was ready for us each morning, the rooms were clean and well stocked, and we felt at home right away. I would recommend that anyone I know visiting New Zealand stay with them.
Gerry and Jeanette were fantastic hosts. Their house was beautiful and clean. They helpedus plan our stay in their area by sharing knowledge of local places to photograph. We had a great breakfast every morning and felt very comfortable in their surroundings. Their home backed up to a beautiful bay where you could see boats in the water and downtown Auckland. I would highly recommend their accommodations.
