Elegant Villa With Yoga Studio

House - Private room · Sentinel Rd, Auckland, Auckland 1011, New Zealand

The Space

We are a professional, well travelled couple looking to host like minded travellers.

Our 106 year old classic villa in Herne Bay has a yoga/dance studio, a spa bath, a large lap pool and is one minute walk from the beach.

We have an open plan kitchen/living area, a large bathroom with spa bath for guests use and a relaxed life style.

The home yoga/dance studio is actually 2 empty bedrooms with folding doors between. I have one spare yoga mat and a bolster and some blocks.

We would be open to sharing evening meals and swapping travellers tales. We are also happy for guests to share and/or do the cooking.

The top of the street has cool cafes and restaurants, the beach at the bottom of the street is secluded and clean.

The buses go from the top of the street, 5 mins walk, into the city or loop around the city.

Your Hosts
MJ is a choreographer so the dance studio is sometimes for teaching and rehearsals during the day or early evening.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • MJ and Phil were the goodest hosts ever. I really enjoyed my short stay with them.
    The room was spacious, bed - comfortable, and internet - fast.

    March 2014
  • Our stay with MJ and Phil was super great. They were welcoming and always taking a good care of us. We really had a good laugh and nice conversations.

    It's also nice to take a walk to town, following the water, especially to avoid traffic!. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommand it to anyway who loves a more peaceful and beautiful area of the town.

We are busy people who enjoy life - and look forward to hosting you. I would like to add that the weather in Auckland is still lovely at this time of year (March 2013) - warm and clear - and will remain like this till June probably - so we'd love to have you to stay! MJ is a choreographer and dance teacher so the dance/yoga studio is sometimes used for teaching and rehearsals during the day or early evening. Phil is a designer/marketer and a great lateral thinker and teller of tales. We have been on the airbnb site for 4 months now and we have really enjoyed our guests - lots of laughs, shared meals, hearing about your life experiences and sharing ours. We are really comfortable with having guests share our house, you have your own bedroom away from the living area and the downstairs bathroom is mainly for your use. As we have travelled a lot over the years ( Europe, Asia, Middle East, Far East, North and South America, the Pacific, Australia ) we really enjoy experiencing and hearing about different cultures and helping people improve their English! We like swimming, surfing, keeping fit, going to shows, movies, TV, music, sharing meals over a glass of wine! Our attitude to life?........live for today......be kind.........have a laugh......
