About this listing
Situated in Auckland suburbs, our house has a modern bach* feel. The kitchen, living and dining room are one - creating a lovely open plan. There are 3 bedrooms (2 dbls & 1 single cot) & 1 new bathroom. With 3-tiered back garden and BBQ area.
The kitchen, living and dining room are one - creating a lovely open plan. With a brand new kitchen (and all the gadgets).
There are 3 bedrooms - 2 of which have a double bed, and one which acts as a baby nursery (with cot). However this can be used as another area to sleep, as an air-bed fits comfortably in this room.
The house features a lovely deck at the front of the house, equipped with a BBQ, table and chairs - to make evening BBQs an easy option.
A beautiful back garden that gets sun all day and plenty of fruit too, with (lemon, peach, fig, plum trees!).
With the addition of our little boy, we've now got all the things you need on a trip when you have an under 3, but aren't sure you can fit in the car (or on a plane!). Highchair, cot, toys and books (all stored in his room - as to keep the rest of the house adult friendly!)
Kiwi Slang explained
*Bach means holiday home
Guests have access to all areas of the house, there are no looked doors or cupboards. This includes access to the laundry room - downstairs with a tumble dryer and washing machine.
Guests do not need to provide linen or towels that is all provided on arrival (with plenty of spares for during your stay).
Interaction with Guests
We like to meet our guests when they arrive (if possible) this enables us to give them a quick guided tour, and then we leave them to enjoy their holiday.
We're always available on our mobiles if any problems occur.
The house is located at the end of a quiet cul de sac road, which is just a 10 minute walk from Blockhouse Bay village, where you'll find a few restaurants and a great coffee shop. There is also 2 Countdowns (supermarkets) within a five minute drive. We're also stones through away from a playground (perfect for the kids to let off some steam).
Blockhouse Bay is a quiet suburb in Auckland. The main village has a stripe of cafe and shops. I would highly recommend the coffee at any of the restaurants, or alternatively grab a smoothie for the kids at the ice cream store
Jump on the motorway and in twenty minutes you'll be in the heart of Auckland City. We're also on 20 minutes from Auckland airport, and 15 minutes from Mt Eden, and 15 minutes to One Tree Hill.
Or alternatively get the bus at the top of the road to get an Express Bus straight into Town. If you've brought your car you can park off the road in front of our garage entrance.
Other Things to Note
If you've brought (hired) a car - you can park on our driveway.
