Stayed for 8 nights here. Overall great stay even though I originally preferred a location closer to the city. But that's just me. If you prefer a place somewhat far from the busy and noisy city, this is a perfect place. There's a dog and cats for you pet lovers. The dog Tommy is really friendly and the cats are just cute. The backyard is a relaxing place to be for those who want greenery with singing birds by the trees while you are reading something. The doors dont have locks except for the main door but we had "door rules" that they'll tell you when you arrive. So it's not a problem even for me who wants privacy a lot. Speaking of doors, I think they just forgot to give me the keys to the main door but it's not a big deal for me as I usually went out around noon and came back in the afternoon and they're already home by then. Internet is fast but if you use it for work, they charge extra but fair I should say. The shopping center Sylvia Park Shopping Center is about 20-30 mins walk if I remember and has a supermarket and almost all kinds of stuff you need. The train is also there if you'll need go to the city. For some reason the bus stops nearby are not recognized by the AT HOP app and I instead just used Uber going around. Worth mentioning. Auckland's best burgers are just a few blocks away called Big J's. Make sure you try their burgers there. Last but not the least, Nicki's cooking (she cooks dinners) is really really good and has added so much value to the accommodation.

I stayed with Dave and Nicki for a week and it was fantastic. Great food and their place is very homely. They are always ready to share advice about New Zealand and very open and patient hosts.
