Set in peaceful private garden, we have a self contained room with a kitchenette and ensuite. You have a separate access to main house.

It's a family home with a young active family, so you will hear kids playing in the garden during daytime hours, always laughs and giggles!

The space
We built the guest room as an addition to our house about 6 years ago so everything is quite new.

The room is based in the garden, so you’ll be greeted by birds first thing in the morning and may catch a glimpse of a Tui while you sip on your coffee.

The room is set up predominantly as a bedroom, but we can swap the arm chair for a desk and chair if you’d prefer a workspace.

The small kitchenette is perfect for preparing breakfast or a sandwich and even reheating food or making a drink but there’s no cooking facilities/oven or hob for cooking a meal. The fridge is SMALL under bench bar fridge.

There’s security lighting in the driveway and an outside light you can leave on if you go out for dinner.

The TV is for you to play media through from your phone, laptop or tablet, there’s a few local channels available as well.

Where you’ll be

Auckland, New Zealand

We are about 20 minutes drive from both the airport and the city Centre. A bit longer by bus. We use Uber a lot because it’s cheap and quick.
We’re 15 mins walk to Eden Park as well! Eden Village & Mt Eden is also just up the hill and has a lot of cafes/pubs/restaurants, only 30 minute walk but up hill so if you don’t fancy the exercise then a 5 minute drive.

We are so lucky to live where we do for cheap eats all around us! Dominion Rd is famous for its Asian food (little China town) and Sandringham Rd equally famous for Delicious curries, vegetarian food and Indian food.
There’s also a authentic French bakery just around the corner on Dominion Rd. Countdown is the closest supermarket, 5 mins drive (15 mins walk) to stock up on groceries and pick up a SIM card. But our Fruit & Veg local only 5 mins walk and also stocks bread, milk and a few other essentials.
St Luke’s Westfield Mall is also 15 min walk if you need to do some shopping.
Buses are frequent along both Dominion and Sandringham Roads heading into the city and the Sky Bus from the airport also passes the end of our street.

This is a great location to base yourself, just be aware that it’s a suburban area and not the Centre or CBD. So you enjoy peaceful garden atmosphere but will need to use public transport or hire a car to get around.

Kirk and Justine have lived in Mt Eden for 10 years. They have been renovating the house gradually and building the guest house was part of this project.
They enjoy meeting new people from all over the world and helping guests to find the best spots to see in Auckland and NZ.

They have two children who are very active and curious and enjoy playing in the garden.

They eat out locally when possible and enjoy the variety of great Asian food very close to Dominion Road and Sandringham and Mt Eden.

Kiss Kiss in Rocklands Ave for Thai fusion food with attitude. Barilla Dumplings on Dominion Rd, Paradise Indian food on Sandringham Rd and The Lord Kitchener Pub are also a family favourite! All less than 10 mins walk from their house.
Cazador Deli and Restaurant at the end of their street are world famous in Auckland for a coffee fix in the morning or an amazing dinner at night, be sure to book.

They are close to St Luke’s mall, on the main bus line to the CBD, and the property is situated in a convenient location, close to all local amenities.

During your stay

We’re happy to interact with guests as much as they like. We enjoy talking about traveling and giving tips about Auckland and NZ.
We’re available by text to assist with anything including help with bank, IRD or just general travel and tourism questions.
We get pretty busy with children around dinner-bed time so that’s the only time we might not be able to chat.
