I had a great time with Marine and Te. It was my first stay ever with airbnb hosts and the two of them were just wonderful. Their appartment may be small but they more than make up for that with friendliness and good conversations. Also, they're cute cat Lilith is a true entertainer. In terms of location, the city center, K Road, and Ponsonby Road are just around the corner, so basically everything is within walking distance. Thanks again, guys, for letting me stay with you!
We stayed here for a few nights and it was amazing. M and T are lovely people and made us feel at home in there home. If anybody would ask for a place to stay i would recommend these lovely kiwi's!
Marine an Te Rangi were very welcoming and quickly made us feel at home.
We were able to use the kitchen facilities.
Bathroom and shower were excellent. The bed and linens very clean.
We shared a couple of evening meals together and had interest discussions.
The property is less than 150m to the bus 20 into the city, recommend getting a one day travel card and explore what Auckland had to offer.
A fantastic place to stay and great hosts.

Very nice experience, Marine have a lot of good tips for the trip and Te Rangi cooked a great meal for us. Both are easy going! Thanks for all!! Carlos and Fran
We spent 2 nights with Marine and Te Rangi who are both very welcoming, warm natured and easy going. The bed was comfortable and ensured a great sleep after our adventures in and around Auckland. The location is great too - very centrally placed just a short walk downhill from K Road.
We would definitely stay here again in the future.
