Welcome To Auckland!
This is a 3 bedroom townhouse next to the Remuera Train Station, on the main bus routes into Auckland, and also convenient for the motorways.
Your room is on the ground floor (of three). It has its own toilet/shower. A comfortable queen size bed, a desk, plenty of drawers, plus a walk-in closet are available for you to use.
Up one flight of stairs there's TV, kitchen, living areas with nice views of Mt Hobson, one of Auckland's 30+ extinct volcanic cones, from the deck.
Heading out for a short walk, 30 mins takes you to the top of Mt Hobson and back, and while up there you can see lovely views of the city, harbour, Rangitoto (a large extinct volcano in the middle of the harbour) and other surrounding features.
Back in your room there is good internet connectivity (wifi) if you want to share your photos from the walk with your online friends.
While out on your walk you might have passed the Jetts Gym, the Market Road Cafe, Dreamers Cafe, the Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, and Indian restaurants, and traditional New Zealand fish and chips shop, all these eateries within a block of our home.
Catch the train to be in Auckland Central in 12 minutes; or catch a bus for a slightly slower trip that takes you past Newmarket (upmarket shopping), the Auckland Hospital, the Auckland University, and in to Britomart Transport Center (downtown) in about 20 minutes.
You should like dogs - ours is a schnoodle and looks like Hairy McLairy from Donaldsons Dairy. She is a cross between a schnauzer and a poodle, and has bundles of energy. She loves visitors. She is called Cleo.
While staying with us you are welcome to use the kitchen and laundry. For breakfast we offer porridge, fresh bread, homemade hummus, coffee, etc. Of course, if you use dishes we expect you to rinse them, or put them in the dishwashwer.

We enjoyed our stay with this family. A dog lover will certainly love Cleo! This place is ideal for access to restaurants and rail service to downtown Aukland. It's very easy to gat around from here. It's an excellent choice!
A delightful stay. A warm welcome from Paul and Ingrid and an even warmer one from Cleo! Comfortable room and very convenient bus and train connections into the city.
Paul and Ingrid were most friendly! Their home was a great start to our working holiday in New Zealand. Really comfortable and lots of space to do our bookings and research as well! It was great having Cleo around as well who always snug up for a tummy rub while we did our stuff.
Thanks so much for the great experience!
Paul was very helpful with staying up to let us in when we arrived after midnight, and even gave us a ride to the bus station downtown for our earlyish Sunday morning departure.
Ingrid, Paul und Cleo waren großartige Gastgeber. Es herrschte eine entspannte Atmosphäre, in der wir uns sehr wohlgefühlt haben. Wir haben für zwei Wochen eine Sprachschule in Auckland besucht und die Minett's waren unser Homestay. Paul und Ingrid haben ihren Teil dazu beigetragen, dass es mit dem Englisch voranging und Cleo hat uns jeden Tag aufs Herzlichste begrüßt.
Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!
Paul and Ingrid are great hosts and their townhouse is in a good location - really easy to get to newmarket and the CBD. The room is really spacious and you have the added bonus of Cleo (the friendly dog) greeting you when you get in. Definitely a good place to stay while in Auckland.
We had a great stay with Paul, Ingrid and Cleo. The house is in a great location and they were ever helpful, friendly and welcoming and made every aspect of our stay a pleasant one. The room was spacious and there was plenty of storage, and we felt very at home using the communal kitchen and living spaces.
Thank you for lovely 2 weeks!
The accomodations that Paul, Ingrid and Cleo offered were great. I found them to be helpful, knowledgeable and gracious host. The room was thrifty, well appointed and a steal for the price in my opinion. A short walk took me to all the things I sought in my urban, yet brief stay in Auckland. With public transportation to the heart of the CBD just steps away from their door by bus or rail, their offering was the perfect location to have to walk home after a night of shopping, drinking and chatting up the ladies. It was quiet, comfortable and I would highly recommend their place whether you're a solo traveller as I was or a couple on a budget seeking a place to simply lay your head and store your things for a night or two. It's what Airbnb is about!
Paul and Ingrid were very welcoming as was Chloe the dog. The unit is in a great location close to the train station with easy access to Auckland, Onehunger and the airport. We had our own bathroom and access to some great books. Certainly would return if we are in Auckland again.
A really nice stay. Lovely people with a beautiful pooch that I cold quite easily have taken home. Great location
