I found Maison Du Bois by chance here in Tripadvisor. I must say, I am extremely thankful for Geoff and Sheridan for the delightful stay. From the time where I emailed Geoff to enquire about the stay until to the time of saying goodbye, it has been nothing but sheer pleasure. To start off, Maison Du Bois itself is wonderful... More

The welcome we received at Maison du Bois was first class. The breakfast was superb . The house is charming and there is an outside pool for when the weather is warmer. The only down side is that the private bathroom is downstairs but this did not bother us. We would stay there again. Geoff even dropped us off in... More

Beautiful home in a very nice area of Auckland. The home is nicely decorated and you immediately feel right at home. Our hosts, Sheridan and Geoff, were just superb. Our room was very nice and bed so comfy! Sheridan is a gourmet cook and professional caterer and her breakfasts were outstanding (best Eggs Benedict ever!). They gave us great ideas... More

I stayed at Maison du Bois for three nights while visiting my grandmother. It's fabulous. My room was light, bright and very comfortable. The linen on the bed was beautiful. The breakfasts are something else. The freshest fruit, yummy muesli (how often do you see those words in the same sentence?!) and then the best corn fritters with bacon and... More

The hosts of this B and B, Sheridan and Geoff, are welcoming and extremely accommodating. They went out of their way to transport me to the train station and a variety of other places, and 'rescued' me when I got lost trying to find my own way back from the station. My room was comfortable with all amenities provided. Sheridan's... More

Deciding to stay at Maison du Bois for the last day of our NZ holiday was a great idea. Geoff and Sheridan Wood are such gracious and welcoming hosts that we immediately felt at home.

After 24 days on a bus tour through New Zealand we wanted to treat ourselves with something special and found Maison du Bous B&B - we booked the corporate rate which also includes dinner among other things. The food that we got there was among the best during our 4 months trip! Also the combinations were special and sooo tasty!... More

Hi Denise, thank you so much for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We were, however, very sorry to hear that Monty had been so boisterous. Being a puppy he can be a bit over the top but we had no idea that he had bruised you. You played with him such a lot we did... More

Travelling is all about new experiences, doing things you don't normally do and seeing if you enjoy them. Well I enjoyed this. You get to share Geoff, Sheridan and Montys lovely home and I cannot recommend this more highly. Do yourself a favour and stay here its well worth it.
