Where you’ll be

Auckland, New Zealand

We live in a quiet semi rural area in a non exit street. It is within the borders of the Waitakere Ranges reserve which is extremely popular. The nights are very quiet. However, we have the morepork (native owl) who "talks" a lot with the other owls in the neighbourhood. There are a total of 360 km bush tracks. A car is a necessity unless you want to use the unit to chill out after a busy work week and don't mind to walk to the bus/train station. Also, Waitakere Ranges is an undervalued area for e-bikes. You can complete very scenic rides.

My wife Lia and I are both retired nurses. We like to travel the world when we can. We also travel a lot in our motor-home up and down NZ, so we have a lot of knowledge traveling NZ. Our aim is to provide good and affordable accommodation.

During your stay

We are able to give you advice about most of New Zealand. We also can assist in dropping you off at bus and train station 2.4 km away. Information magazines, books and many pamphlets about NZ are available next to the front door of the unit. When you are planning a tramp in the area we could drop you off at point A and pick you up at point B so you don't need to walk back. This need to be pre arranged with us.
