I was made to feel very welcome indeed and 'part of the family' when I arrived after a long car trip and late at night. The family were very hospitable and I will certainly try to stay with Francesca & family on my next trip. The room was very comfortable and the bed especially so as it was a good size (queen)!
A lovely family who goes out of their way to make your stay a comfortable and welcoming one. A lovely meet and greet at the airport was above and beyond the call of duty and I received a cheery hello despite the flight arriving late.
I stayed at Francesca's lovely home for 4 nights and had a wonderful experience. My room was spacious, bright, comfortable, clean and I liked having my own bathroom right next door. The location was also great as it was located a very close walk to train/bus stops or is a quick drive into the city center. Francesca was such a welcoming and friendly host. From the instant I met her, I felt very much at ease and that I knew I was going to enjoy my time there. And I did! I was fortunate to have some amazing conversations and laughs with her. She was helpful with recommendations and my room had some good reading material on NZ as well! Her entire family was very kind and it really felt like a home away from home. It has been one of the best AirBnB experiences I've had thus far. I would highly recommend staying here!
We were welcomed warmly by our hosts upon arrival. Their home is located in a beautiful and very private neighborhood. We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. Our private room had easy access to private restroom. Walking distance to the train.
The room was just as it had been described. Francesca and family were so relaxed and friendly that I felt very much at home staying with them.
I had work in the city, so being close to the Meadowbank train station was really ideal. It’s a quick and relaxing train journey - in comparison to commuting in peak Auckland traffic.
I was able to park my car in their driveway/behind the gate and could easily come and go as I needed. It was especially nice to be in a family home and I really enjoyed my stay. It was all so easy and comfortable. An awesome family in a lovely home - Thank you!
This was my first AirBnB experience and I couldn't fault it. Francesca is an amazing host and her family are extremely friendly, right down to their dog. Anyone that is unsure about AirBnB should come and stay with Francesca because you won't want to leave.
