Welcome to The Studio, our self-contained studio in the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges.

Perfect for couples, friends or solo travellers coming to Auckland for business, holidays, weddings, concerts, sports games and events.

Just minutes from the historic Swanson Railway Station, we are perfectly located to enjoy all that the west and north of Auckland has to offer, including stunning west coast beaches, wineries, forest and bush.

The space
The Studio is separate to the main house, has it’s own entrance, and off-street parking at the door. Self check-in is available with lock box after 2pm.

The layout is open plan.

Sleep well in a super-king sized bed with quality linens and electric blanket - or - the room can be made up as twin-share configuration (2 long single beds) - see note below.

The adjacent bathroom has plenty of light and space and a generously sized shower.

Everything you need for a continental breakfast is provided on the first day.

The kitchen has microwave, small bench-top oven and hotplate, and all the crockery and utensils you need for making breakfast and cooking simple meals.

A range of teas and coffee are provided.

Enjoy a drink or meal on the shared deck, taking in elevated views of the city and harbour.

Free WIFI, Netflix and a selection of books and magazines are on hand for relaxing.

A fan and heater are available for additional comfort.

Guest access
You have access to the entire Studio space, the shared deck and driveway.

Other things to note
Twin Share: If you are two friends travelling together who don't want to share the bed, there will be a one-off additional charge of $25 per stay to cover the additional linen costs for the second bed.

Longer stays of 10+ nights: An additional $20 cleaning fee applies for a mid-stay clean and linen change.

We are in a semi rural location, in the mornings you might hear farm animals and roosters amongst the birdsong.
