Stayed here for 8 nights. Very glad I booked the cottage early, as it had everything I needed for a relatively long stay: bathroom with bathtub / shower, kitchen, two bedrooms (lovely comfortable beds), living room and lounge, laundry facilities, parking and a beautiful garden with many trees and native birds. Beautifully appointed, clean, neat and tidy accommodation.
It is located in a very beautiful and quiet suburb of Remuera, not too far from Auckland CBD. Nice restaurants and take-away options within walking distance.
I had a car (needed a car for World Masters Games locations) and when I had to go to the CBD I drove to the nearby Orakei train station's "park and ride" facility and took the train to the CBD (Britomart) which is only one stop away. This is a far cheaper and easier option that to try and find parking in Auckland CBD. Relatively close to motorway and airport, so the location is very convenient.
The owner is very helpful, friendly and attentive.
Thank you Clare once again for an amazing stay at your b and b. Great location to Mt Smart for the Adele concert. Always clean, tidy and warm. And thank you for the lovely fruit and cereals for breakie. Definitely will recommend to friends and family.
We spent our first 2 nights here when we arrived in Auckland. Compact use of space, and it was comfortable for our family of 4. The host was accommodating and helpful when our travel delirium set in and we had trouble finding place, and she personally delivered freshly washed towels shortly after our arrival.
Only negative is that we had ants in the bathroom. We brought it to her attention, and Im not sure that anything was done and we noticed them the following night as well. They are Argentine and are common in rainy areas.
Anyways, this flat is a good alternative to hotels in the area.
