About this listing
Unlimited WIFI. Best street. Spacious and sunny double room. Lake access from garden. Home away from home, relaxed, friendly and fun atmosphere. Free use of bikes, kayaks and paddle boards. Close to Takapuna Beach and all amenities.
YOU WON'T FIND A BETTER LOCATION IN AUCKLAND, situated RIGHT ON the stunning Lake Pupuke, close to the Auckland CBD, beaches, cinema, theatres, pubs, restaurants and shopping galore. Everything is literally on your doorstep.
Kayaks and 2 mountain bikes are free to use. There is a lovely cycle track to Devonport. Supermarket only 800 metres and Takapuna centre 1000 metres which includes the central North Shore bus station.
Help yourself to breakfast each morning - cereal, tea, coffee, milk, sugar, bread and spreads. Please feel free to cook your evening meal in the kitchen to avoid the expense of eating out but we ask that you to tidy up after yourself.
Our home is not the Ritz as it is an older style property, but the location is. You will have access to wi fi in case you need to work or study during your stay.
This room is ideal for younger back packers or couples who are looking for a relaxing yet fun place to stay and who want to be close to the action and everything that is going on in Auckland. Note the room has a queen bed but we can supply an additional fold down bed as the bedroom is large if there is an additional person in your group.
For the less energetic relax in the lake front garden with it's sheltered and sunny seating area overlooking the lake. This is a perfect place to unwind after a busy day sight seeing or working in Auckland.
We are in arguably in the best street on the North Shore. Close to Takapuna with it's huge variety of restaurants, cafes and bars, lovely beach, cinema and 2 theatres. We are also close to the main North Shore hospital and a 10 minute bus ride will take you into Auckland City.
I can help with any questions about Auckland or other areas of NZ as I have travelled extensively since arriving here 20 years ago with 2 small children. There is no place we would rather live! I can also recommend a local shuttle service for transport to and from Auckland airport, please enquire for details.
