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.
From the moment I first spoke with Francesca on the telephone to advise her of our arrival time, she made us feel very welcome. The bedroom and bathroom was clean and bright and provided space for our cases etc., while also providing a private area with table and chairs outside our room. The location was very convenient, being just minutes (walk) from a large supermarket and various options for take away food, as well as in close proximity to public transport.
Francesca and her family (including Brutus the dog) made us feel very much at home and we enjoyed our conversations with them all. Their kindness and generosity was very much appreciated and Francesca and her husband were more than happy to give us advice on places to visit and all in all we could not fault this airbnb. We would love to return one day if we had the opportunity. It was a wonderful conclusion to a fantastic stay in beautiful New Zealand.
Thank you very much! We enjoyed having you here and you are always welcome here!
This is our first Airbnb experience and fortunately Francesca's house is an absolutely right choice. The house is easy to find, the family is very friendly, the room is comfortable. Everyone is always willing to offer their help. It is a good beginning for me to start my trip from here after a very good rest. Highly recommend!
Francesca is a wonderful, generous host and genuinely makes her guests feel welcome. She clearly enjoys hosting people from around the world and my fondest memories of this stay were sitting around her dining room table and chatting with her, her family and the other guests staying there.
The room was spacious, clean with plenty of storage space. There was a large desk which was great for me as I needed to work on my laptop. The bonus with this property is that you have a bathroom for your sole use.
The house is large, and even with a full complement of guests it was still possible to have privacy.
The house is on a good bus route to Remuera, Newmarket and the city and the train station is not too far away. There is a supermarket very near, plus other shops, cafes and restaurants.
Tip: book early - Francesca is always busy!
Thank you so much Michael! .....I sure miss our evening chats too!!! It is been such a pleasure to share those moments with you....hope to see you back soon! :)
Thank you very much for the stay. It was a pleasure and I can just recommend your lovely home.
Francesca and her family were very welcoming. My daughter stayed with Francesca for 12 days and found her stay to be very pleasant.
The private area was clean, spacious and enjoyable. Francesca helped with knowledge of the area, bus & train timetables and places to see. It was a pleasure to stay with such a welcoming family and the location was close to all amenities, public transport and a short distance to the city.
I would like to thank Francesca for her hospitality as it was my daughters first trip and her experience was one that has made her feel confident and excited to travel more.
Francesca's home and our room was clean and comfortable and all we'd hoped for at a BnB. It is situated in a quiet street with no traffic noise.
Our memory of our short stay was highlighted by Francesca welcoming nature and her obvious love and pride for her family. We enjoyed meeting two of Francesca's adult children, and chatting with Francesca about many topics at breakfast.
We would love to stay again.
Thanks for staying with us Antony. We hope you have a safe trip taking the coal ship to China. Congratulations on completing your require hours.
