Couldn't fault this. Sarah was very helpful and responsive with everything. Got back to us quickly, gave us thorough instructions about the house and helpful tips about the area, and even left Easter chocolates for us. The house had a welcoming and comfortable feel about it and had everything we (2 adults 2 kids) needed. Also with a great location - close to transport, the city, shops, and Parnell Baths. Highly recommended.

A wonderful family home which we felt privledged to say whilst in Auckland. The location in brilliant, the back garden beautiful snd the house very tidy, clean and well appointed. Sarah was a great host who communicated very well including a nice hand written welcome note. Highly recommended
What a delightful family home; we were sorry to leave. Although it's in busy Parnell and only a block from a main road, it is quiet and restful and has a lovely secure back garden. We were there for our son's wedding in the rose gardens and we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful place to retire from the hectic pace of the weekend. Sarah answered all questions promptly and was very friendly. We would love to return some day.
What a nice home in just the right area!! Sarah gave us detailed directions and instructions and with found and entered her home with no problem. We so pleased as it was very nice with everything we could ask for. Light, well decorated, plenty of towels and many extras. My buddy and I had our own room in clean comfortable beds.
We walked to Parnell Road and had pick of 30 restaurants. We chose a restaurant called Poodpecker Hill and had very tasty dinner. We had short walk for coffee in morning and a takeout fish and chips place. Best I've ever had.
If you are new to Auckland, recommend Hop on Hop off bus with some time in Auckland War Museum and Harbor area.
Thank you Sarah such a gorgeous home! The house was had everything and more that we needed. Perfect place to stay if your spending a weekend in Auckland. Its centrally located, nice and quiet and just a wee stroll to a local cafe. We will definitely be back to stay again. Huge thanks Sarah x
We were very satisfied with Sarah's house. Sarah had supplied comprehensive instructions on how to get in the house in her own absence. Perfectly situated near, but not in, the CBD, near the beaches and within walking distance of the car rental firms and the restaurants on Parnell Road. Everything clean and in good working order. Sarah was also very responsive even if she was on a vacation of her own. Would gladly come back again. Highly recommended.
