Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
My house offers you a spacious double bedroom, with a private bathroom adjacent, in a quiet area close to central Auckland. It's welcoming, sunny, comfortable, with things guests love, gathered on my travels.
Grey Lynn/Westmere is a laid-back, diverse neighbourhood. The local village offers cafes, relaxed bars, funky shops, an organic mini-market and great bookstore. A supermarket and deli are nearby.
It's an easy walk to Ponsonby Rd's lively scene and a 12 minute bus ride to the inner city.

The space
My two-storeyed home is perfect for visitors. Your bedroom and bathroom are downstairs, while mine are upstairs. Access to the kitchen and living room is also downstairs if you want to make a coffee or tea.
The living room is spacious and warm,looking out on the garden. Sit outside with a glass of wine or your morning coffee and enjoy the birds!

Location

Auckland, New Zealand

I love living in Auckland and I love my 'hood! It's a quiet area, but diverse, with Pasifika peoples living nearby. There are few pretensions and a funky style. Great amenities include Coxes Bay Park for runs or walks and the West Lynn shops - good cafes for breakfast and small neighbourhood bars for a drink and maybe some chat with locals at the end of the day.

I work part-time on various projects now, but have been a high school teacher, diplomat (postings in Malaysia and New York), and communications strategist in architecture, agriculture, education, not for profits, plus government). I was even a tour guide around NZ for an American company one summer recently. I'm also a trained Celebrant, doing weddings and funerals for friends and will be officiating at a small wedding in my garden next year! I love travelling, the gym, cooking, my garden, swimming, walking, movies, pilates and reading. I have a busy social life with stacks of wonderful friends around NZ. "Carpe diem" is my motto!

During your stay
I like to welcome guests personally if I'm able to, and if my working hours permit.
I know NZ well, having been a tour guide at one time, so enjoy helping people with their travel plans if they want this.
I speak a little bit of Bahasa Malaysia and some schoolgirl French - and a little te reo Maori.
