We are a couple in our 50s. We have two adult children aged 27 and 23. We love travel and house decoration/renovation.
What a great experience! Gary and Lynda were great hosts. I felt at ease right away, it was like visiting family. I had open access to the kitchen and most of the house. There are two decks to enjoy some quiet time catching up on emails and messages or sit and a cup of coffee while listening to the birds or enjoying the fresh New Zealand air. I was invited to bar-b-que with them and their family as well! Gary and Lynda were a lot of help with tips and pointer about NZ and made my first two days in NZ very memorable and easy.
Thank you Lynda and Gary for the lovely stay! Lynda and Gary are really friendly and helpful hosts. They will give you advice and help you anytime you like. It felt like home and thats why I stayed 7 nights instead of the planned 4 :). The beach, supermarket and bus stop to Auckland city centre are very close (within 5 - 10 minutes). It will feel like you're at home right away and they treat you like a family member. I recommend their place highly!
Thank you so much for that lovely review. You have been a pleasure to host.
What a lovely stay at Lynda's and Gary's. They were great hosts. I felt very welcomed and comfortable. Their house is a beautiful place, quiet and very clean. Lynda and Gary always were very helpful and generous.
All in all I had a wonderful time here and I highly recommend their place.
Thanks for your very kind review Nico.
Lynda and Gary are very good hosts. They make you feel at home and help you with any question you might have. A bus stop is right across the street. The beach, supermarkets, a cafe and a fruit market are very close and can be reached within 5-10 minutes. The house is located in a quit area but still not too far from Auckland (the bus goes there directly). I would always recommend to stay here :)
Gary and Lynda were perfect hosts, friendly, informative , generous and helpful .
Both Lynda and Gary are fantastic hosts to their warm and cozy family home.
The room has great views and is more than adequate for 1 person, the bed is firm and comfortable. Coupled to this, the fact you have access to most of the house and garden makes for a lovely stay at this friendly home in Greenbay.
Lynda is everything and more you'd expect from a hostess. Always friendly and smiling, willing to assist with anything you may require.
Gary is a wealth of local knowledge, so if you need to know anything about the local setup, ask Gary...but be careful though, he might just climb in your car with you and show you about :)
Another plus...Steven (Lynda's Son) lives in the house and is a personal trainer. So for a few extra $$ you get a great workout too.
Over all, I'd recommend this stay to the next lonely traveler.
I really felt at home in Lynda's house. I wasn't tiptoeing around the house because Lynda and Gary made me feel like family. She was very generous with her time and was glad to talk to me about Auckland -- places to see and how to get around.
I went to NZ in winter so it was quite rough but arriving home provided much relief, comfort and WARMTH! Lynda always turned the heater in the guest room on before I arrived so it would be already warm when I got home. I thought that was very thoughtful and really appreciated that. Their house was clean and comfortable and I had everything I needed.
I had a great stay at Lynda's and I highly recommend their place. Best experience so far. :)
What a lovely and generous review. So glad you made the bus in time. Enjoy the restnif your time in NZ.
Nice room and house. I had a very friendly welcome. Lovely hosts!
Felt very welcomed by everyone in the house. It's a nice room in a quiet area of Auckland with good transport links into the city.
Gary, Lynda and their family were great hosts.
Thanks for your very kind words.
Lynda and her family were lovely hosts. I'd happily return
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.
