The Space

Sunny, spacious family home with polished wooden floors & garden. Large sunny living room opening onto deck.
Perfect if you're bringing children who need a bit of space.

Please enquire about availability even if the calendar shows "not available" as I can sometimes be flexible.

A short walk to Parnell village, The Rose Gardens and the Parnell Pools.

15-20 mins walk to the Viaduct and Waiheke Island / Devonport ferry wharf. (Both great day trips)

Double carport.
Children's trampoline .

You will have use of the entire ground floor of the house (the upstairs will be locked and unoccupied) - made up of:
- 1 double bedroom with comfortable queen bed.
- 1 children's bedroom with bunkbeds plus roll out bed for an extra child. Comfortably sleeps 3 children / adults.
- 1 Bathroom with shower and bath and separate toilet.
- Fully equipped kitchen with oven, microwave & dishwasher.

Great cafe (with good coffee) about 200 mtrs away (Rosehip cafe).
Very close shops on Gladstone Road including pharmacy, butcher, fruit & vege shop, dairy (meaning "seven eleven"), fantastic fish & chip shop (voted best in Auckland) , sushi & good wine shop.

Two fantastic playgrounds for children - both easy walking distance. Gladstone Park - Corner of Gladstone Rd and Balfour Rd or Parnell District School - Gladstone Rd.

Parnell Baths - easy 10 minute walk - fantastic swimming (some heated pools) for all ages - toddlers to adults. You can take a picnic if you like. NB - only open during summer months.

The Auckland Art Gallery is well worth a visit (25 - 30 min walk). It has been awarded World Building of the Year at the prestigious World Architecture Festival in Singapore (Oct 2013).

Lonely Planet has just announced Auckland as one of their top ten cities to visit in 2014: "Food, arts and exploring the coastal hinterland are all excellent reasons to extend your stay in New Zealand’s biggest and most cosmopolitan city"

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Sarah's home is an absolute delight. We were so comfy & relaxed, with plenty of gorgeous sunlight & room to move. We had all info at our fingertips & enjoyed a true, beautiful Auckland experience. Thanks to Sarah & family. Highly recommended!!

  • The listing was very much as expected. We really liked being in the Parnell neighborhood as it is very nice. Sarah's house is 4 +/- blocks from a nice shopping district so a good combination of quiet but close to retail, restaurants, etc. Sarah was very easy to deal with and very responsive.

  • Our experience with Sarah was nothing but easy and pleasant. Her response to my initial enquiry was quick. Sarah's comprehensive and detailed instructions meant we had no questions during our stay. Sarah's house is centrally located in a trendy area and the house itself felt like home, loving the interior design. We didn't have to worry about all the little (costly) things either, like going out to buy full packs of laundry detergent etc It was all there (all eco friendly too :). Sarah is very personable and we thoroughly enjoyed our (website hidden) we stayed with kids, the trampoline was a winner. I will definitely be recommending anyone travelling to Auckland to stay here….

  • Hi,
    There is not really much to say except it was the best air-bnb experience for us so far!
    We really fell in love with Sarah's place, her terrace, Parnell and the City of Sails!
    It was such a wonderful week!
    Everything is really as it is shown in the pictures and we felt home right away!
    We didn't meet Sarah in person but the check- in and check- out was well planned and she left her mobile number just in case!
    We highly recommend her!

  • Sarah's house and garden were absolutely lovely. Great location - close to city and a very short walk to Parnell cafes and shops. We loved staying here and would highly recommend it. Instructions were very clear. Thank you Sarah!

  • Great place, nice host - I thought the house was even more spacious and the garden more lovely than the pictures showed. We had a lovely time here.

  • Although the weather was a bit nasty, we had a lovely stay in this beautiful home. We were able to have a nice family Christmas and it seemed just like home. Excellent for kids and families! Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Sarah, however before hand she was very easy to get in touch with and very helpful.

  • The appartment of Sarah is great; it has a beautiful private garden, comfortable with all amenities we needed and nicely decorated. We liked the neigborhood with lots of nice little shops and cafe's and just a short stroll (10-15min by foot) to the very center of the city. We liked the fact that we had the appartment all by ourselves. Sarah gave clear instructions and was easy to contact. Highly recommended!
