Hi Ramon Thank you for your feedback. We hope to see you again on Mount Hobson - a single night stay is too short. Stay a few nights next time and come out sailing on our luxury cruising yacht. Warm Regards John and Mali

Thank you for your review. At NZ$75 per night for a two night stay this is budget accommodation for the Remuera / Newmarket area. (The booking was for Mount Hobson Cabin, not Mount Hobson Cottage which is a larger property at the same address). 97% of Airbnb guests are great guests but 3% are guests from hell that ignore house rules (e.g. non smoking properties). We run to hotel standards. We have stand alone separate properties so the only practical way to operate is to have a quick check of the property during guest stays to help avoid surprises and health & safety and security issues. I should have discussed this with Jeremy on arrival. The bed making and quick straightening of the space is usually appreciated by guests. Will discuss with our staff so we can improve.

John's place is for those who are adventurous and after a unique experience. Yes, the floor is a little lively and the bed is a little slanted but you are surrounded by a beautiful garden and can view beautiful Auckland from atop. It is also clean and cozy. Thank you for hosting…

Lovely hillside setting with great views. Nice and cosy and quiet. Very convenient for a conference I was attending in Remuera, but would also be close to Newmarket or anywhere in central Auckland. We were very grateful to the owners for getting everything ready early so we could…
