We are a couple in our 50s. We have two adult children aged 27 and 23. We love travel and house decoration/renovation.
The host canceled this reservation 59 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We are very sorry to have to cancel but we have a family celebration that means we can no longer host.
It was a realy lovley stay at Lyndas and Garys house! Everything is nice, clean and cosy so that you can feel at home. Lynda and Gary help you with everything you need and are able to provide a lot of information and tips- perfect for any Auckland-visitor!
Lynda and Gary are very nice and helpful people. It was a real pleasure meeting them. Their house is very quiet and very pleasant too and I had all I needed in my bedroom during my stay there. I Highly recommand. Thank you again.
I stayed with Gary and Lynda in my first week in New Zealand, and felt right at home. They have a very beautiful house and the room is really great. We have very good chats in their living room and they were very helpful with all my questions about Auckland.
This was my best experience with Airbnb yet! I was very warmly welcomed by Lynda who gave me a tour of their home, and I was informed to make "myself at home". Tea, coffee and milo was available to use at any time and also the use of the kitchen facilities (which were just fabulous). Also there was cereals, bread, juice for a serve yourself breakfast. My room was super comfortable with a very comfy bed, wardrobe, ample drawers, a desk and chair, good lighting, overhead fan, beautiful linen. I shared a bathroom with 2 other family members but this was not a problem. There are 2 decks which I took advantage of with comfortable seating. Both Lynda and Gary are truly lovely people who will help in any way possible, but leave you to your own devices. I shared some lovely conversations with them and joined them to watch TV. You have a view from the lounge and front deck of Green Bay which is only a 5 minute walk from their home. Bus service also only a 5 minutes walk. There is a small shopping area 15 minutes walk. I felt so at home with this warm couple (and their 2 gorgeous cats) that I will make their home my first choice (if available) when I next return to Auckland! 110% recommended!
Wonderful experience living at Lynda & Gary place; they are nice, helpful & excellent host.
Their house is quiet; convenience & comfortable. Their cats Cookies & Biscuits are cute. I felt relax & warm like at home.
Hope so much I will living in their place again.
Lynda & Gary are the best hosts ever. Friendly and easy going family, beautiful home, lovely garden, big kitchen, 5 minutes walk to the beach, what's more I can ask?
I felt at home during my stay there. The room and the bed are very cozy, I rested so well after a long trip from Singapore and an intensive course over the weekend. Thank you Lynda!
I highly recommend their lovely house and definitely would love to return again!
Thanks for your kind words June.

It was a pleasure meeting and staying with Lynda and Gary. Their spacious home was comfortable, clean, and well organized. I loved sitting on the back deck in the morning, and had some interesting conversations with them about many things. Convenient location too.
I stayed at Lynda And Gary's home while looking for work in Auckland. They are lovely hosts and made me feel welcome in their home and in New Zealand. I can definitely recommend staying here.
Green Bay is a leafy quiet suburb. It was a relief to return to their home after a busy day out.
lovely guests. Easy going, relaxed and uncomplicated stay. Thank you for leaving the space so tidy.
Lynda and her parnter were fantastic guests. Everything was smooth and they took great care of my apartment. I would highly recommend them to any host!
We were very glad to welcome Lynda. She was quick to reply to emails in advance of the trip. She was a responsible, very pleasant guest who took care of the place and left it in good condition. It was a pleasure to host her.
What a pleasure to have such delightful guests. Charming, polite and absolutely immaculate. Perfect in every way. I highly recommend them to any host as being the most ideal guests you could have stay and certainly hope they return to visit St. Marks again one day. Karin
Very lively and nice couple to share our house with. Lynda was quite a communicator, made me much more relaxed and not so worried as this was my first airbnb host experience and third time host to travelers. Thanks very much Lynda and wish you all the best for your future trips.
Lynda and Gary were wonderful guests.. Extreemly friendly and interesting. They left the guest house clean and tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
It was a pleasure to meet Lynda and Gary and they were very considerate guests when they stayed in our Garden Retreat. We would be happy to see them again at any time and would not hesitate to recommend to others.
Lynda and Gary were a real pleasure to have around, wonderful guests and we welcome them back whenever they like! All the best.
