Bev is a very experienced, welcoming host. All is laid out nicely, and though the house is older vintage it's clean and tidy and quiet at night. The neighborhood is walking distance to Takapuna and the pumphouse, etc. There are beaut views of Lake Pupuke and Bev is happy to loan you a Kayak to paddle round the lake.

This was a wonderful place to wind down after 6 weeks of travel in Asia & Australia before we headed home to Canada.

This is such an amazing quiet location while still being close to Takapuna central. I really felt very welcome. Great host. Comfortable home with good facilities. Walk to the end of the garden to the lake. I loved riding the bike around and enjoyed kayaking and paddle boarding boarding morning and night. I'd stay here again. Great value.

Bev was wonderfully helpful and accommodating during my stay. Check in and check out were very easy, and Bev's communication was fantastic. The location on Lake Pupuke was wonderful, as were the availability of the kayaks and bike (I used a kayak during my stay). Also, Bev's house rules were clear and quite helpful. I would definitely stay again in the future. Thank you!

I love life and try and make the most of every day. I enjoy making new friends and hosting travellers has become an awesome way of seeing the world without leaving home.

I'm originally from the UK and have been living in New Zealand for 20 years. I love the outdoors, particularly water sports, motor bike riding, travelling and sightseeing and having a location on Lake Pupuke and close to Takapuna Beach is paradise. Guests are encouraged to treat our home as their own and I like to catch up and discuss travel plans when I'm around. When not out on the water I work locally and take occasional overseas trips.

I love New Zealand, so helping visitors get the most out of their stay in this awesome country makes my day. Also, when time permits, I enjoy teaching my guests water skills in the safe environment of the beautiful North Shore of Auckland. Trips across to Rangitoto are available for the more adventurous.
