My husband and I staying in this lovely studio for 6 nights. It was perfect for us as we were visiting a family member 3 mins drive away. Set amongst NZ native bush and very private. It had everything you need including washing machine, full kitchen, large fridge, small bbq, TV, very comfy bed, our own parking spot. The wifi was excellent (sometimes had to step outside to use phone though, which wasn't a problem). Had no problems with the smell, just typical if a place is closed up in the bush. We opened windows and it was fine. We enjoyed the clean air, sound of birds, lush surroundings, closeness to the beaches, vineyards and fresh produce. The city is only a 20min drive, but we took the train from Ranui station to save parking and the airport is approx 35 min drive outside of peak hours. Our host Brigitte was more than welcoming and pleasant. I am coming back to stay here if my dad is still in the same facility next time I make a trip. My husband didn't want to leave.
We really liked the beautiful location of the Henderson Valley and found it was easy to get into Auckland using the motorway. Brigitte was lovely and very welcoming. A large downside for us was the damp smell that was very overpowering throughout the cottage. While there is no visible mould we found ourselves getting up in the night to go outside and get fresh air, we also tried burning candles and buying air freshener however this did not mask the smell. While we were out during the day we also left the cottage windows and door open to let fresh air through however the smell is really there to stay. Unfortunately this meant our 4 night stay was quite stressful as my husband has asthma and I also felt the effects of sleeping amongst the smell after a few nights. I am sure if that had not been the case we would have thoroughly enjoyed our time there, as the setting and host are both very lovely.
Delighted with our stay at The Studio! Very pleasant hosts, comfortable roomy accommodation in a lovely bush setting. Good to have secure off street parking as well. All in all, a lovely place to stay!
Brigitte was a great host. She was very friendly and flexible about check-in time and gave me some helpful information about local walks. The studio was very quiet, peaceful, private and clean. It borders on to a native reserve and there is a nice walk just a few metres from the driveway. The wifi was good which made is easy for me to work during the day. I would recommend this studio to anyone - especially if you want to explore everything the Waitakere ranges have to offer.
Très bon accueil, famille adorable. Brigitte est de très bon conseil et n'hésite pas à prendre le temps de discuter avec ses visiteurs. Le studio est très confortable et nous plonge en plein bush néo-zélandais. Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine, reposante et pleine de découvertes.
Petit conseil aux futurs visiteurs : avoir une voiture facilite grandement la vie.
Very good welcoming, adorable family. Brigitte gives very good advices and doesn't hesitate to take the time to chat with her guests. The studio is very comfy and put us into the new-zealander bush. We spenta very good week, restful and full of discoveries.
Little advice to the future guests : having a car makes everything easier.
We loved to stay at this lovely place and Brigitte is kind and nice! Great host! The place was exactly what we needed to stay and rest after bad days. The place is very peaceful, no noise around, amazing forest view and confortable, perfect if You like to make your own meals, has everything you need to do it at the fully equiped kitchen! We loved and highly recomend to stay there!
Amazing place to stay. The studio is very comfortable and has everything that you need. The area is great, very picturesque and has many beautiful beaches around like Piha, Bethells etc. It only takes about 30min by car to get there. Same goes for City Centre, 30min by car.
Brigitte is a very friendly and easy to deal with.
I would recommend this place to everyone who wants to stay in Auckland and live in nice and peaceful area. However, you have to have a car, otherwise it will be really inconvenient. But if you have a car, then try this place!
By the way, the price is very competitive too.
A fabulous secluded retreat. Everything (and more) I needed in a self contained studio. If the location works for you-then this studio is the place to stay. Just a great place to enjoy some of New Zealand's wonderful native birds & forest.
C'est un endroit magique entretenu par des hôtes extraordinairement gentils, accueillants et avenants ! On se sent vraiment chez soi ! A seulement 30 minutes du CDB et à 20 minutes des magnifiques plages de la côte Ouest ! Aucun mot ne sera assez puissant pour remercier Brigitte et Troy !! Vivement la prochaine fois !!
Brigitte and Troy were lovely and welcoming hosts! This studio had everything we needed for a very fast 48 hours in Auckland to attend a wedding. We had hired a car, which made it very easy to access supermarkets and shops nearby, and we even ventured into the CBD one evening which was only a short drive from the studio. The bed was very comfortable, and the studio had everything we needed, from an iron to press our clothes for the wedding, to a pair of scissors we used for the gift wrapping paper. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the whole studio was much more spacious than we expected - with lovely views. I have already recommended Brigitte and Troy's studio to my family who want to see the North Island of New Zealand, and if I return I would definitely stay there again.
Great guests, friendly and very respectul. highly recommended.
J'espère bien venir visiter votre studio, il a l'air très sympa !
