Just spent a couple of nights at Nautical Nook with my wife and kids over the Xmas period. Trish and Keith welcomed us as only Kiwis know how to do: simply and nicely, with their unique kindness. Nautical Nook is comfortable and ideally located to discover Auckland and is surroundings (Mission Bay, among other things). Trish's breakfasts are among the...

Our trip starting Mid-October in Auckland was our first time in NZ. Trish and Keith gave us a warmest welcome and intro to the way of Kiwi living. Bedrooms and house were in very nice conditions, each room had a separate spacious bathroom to relax. We had been really enjoying their hospitality, got to admire the NZ beer offered, we...

We started and finished our wonderful month in New Zealand with Keith and Trish. Because they were the 1st accommodation we booked, they answered many questions for us and their knowledge & recommendations were spot on. Trish's breakfasts were the best in a month of great food and accommodations!!! The location was perfect near great restaurants and public transportation.

It is all those little things these hosts do that make Nautical Nook a great place to stay! We live in the Bay of Islands and frequently go to Auckland on business. We have stayed with Trish and Keith many times but recently when they also had guests from Ireland (here for the World Cup) and Canada. This was Kiwi...

Trish and Keith were so inviting and flexible that you'd be hard pressed to find fault with anything. Their rooms were simple but elegant, clean and tidy. Their recommendations of nearby attractions spot on. And, while they don't advertise themselves as child-friendly, they were so kind and patient to our 6 & 7 year old. The breakfast outrageously good. The...

This B&B is a little outside of central Auckland, but the hosts will point you in the right direction to catch the bus to town. It's easy and the buses are quite frequent, so it's worth it to enjoy the peaceful location with ocean views. Actually, it's not out of the question to walk downtown; we did, taking in the...

Keith and Trish are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. Trish's breakfasts are fantastic and accommodated our vegan diet. Keith took us out on his sailboat and the boat ride was spectacular. It's a quick bus ride into the center of town. A must place to stay in Auckland. Thanks for a wonderful time Keith and Trish.

Trish and Keith are the most super hosts; nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are clean and comfortable and there is a very pleasing view to the harbour from the sitting room and outdoor deck. Best of all, the breakfasts are exceptional: the dishes are created with charm and imagination and served with friendly good humour; the generous fare sets...

Double booked us for our last two days and suggested we bunk down on the boat. Then tried to fit us in with a room close bye one night and a room upstairs the other. Finally the black flies in the bed, the cobwebs in the bedroom and the wierd squeeky toys on the breakfast plate made our decision for...
