Sun and sea views, 5 km from the city center, 3 minutes walk from cafes, shops, and bus stop. Self contained guest house in beautiful Westmere Auckland, with kitchen facilities, bath and shower, 2 bedrooms, sunny living area, and private deck.
The living area is an open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner. The kitchen includes a sink and bench unit, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle and toaster (no cooker). Crockery, glasses and cutlery are all provided together with tea and coffee.
The lounge area is very light and airy. It has a two seater sofa and big picture window giving wonderful views of the sea and sunsets. Sliding glass ranch doors lead off to the deck.
The main bedroom has a new comfortable Queen size bed and lovely views through orange trees to the sea. The second bedroom has a single bed and generous wardrobe space (alas no views!). Both bedrooms are relatively small, but plenty large enough to sleep in. Another single mattress is available if you need to sleep a fourth person, which can go either in the bedroom or the living room.
The bathroom has a bath as well as a shower.
Outside is a large private deck which looks out to the sea. Private steps lead to the sea although these are quite steep (not for the infirm) and can be very slippery in the wet. The beach is a bit muddy when the tide's out, and there can be sharp shells, so be careful. When the sea is in it's beautiful. The water is shallow so it's quite safe to paddle in; our kids love to splash around down there in the summer, and in the winter they watch the kite surfers rush by.
Our Guest House is sited at the rear of our section, it's detached from our house, and has its own private entrances. There is a private deck, and beautiful views of the harbour. It has a Northerly aspect, which means plenty of all-day sunshine. Please note that is not wheelchair accessible.

My husband and I both work but are available to assist or offer advice on activities and places to visit or eat. Otherwise we just leave you alone.
Please read our details before booking to ensure that the accommodation meets your needs; we hate our guests to be disappointed
The TV has Freeview (terrestrial TV), plus a dvd/blu ray player. You are also welcome to jump on to our WIFI for no extra cost. WIFI usage is unlimited, but the signal can be a weak because the router is situated over in the main house - we provide a wifi booster.
There are some steep steps and retaining walls on the property, so very young children will need to be supervised.
We obviously can't list everything that we don't provide, but in response to specific inquiries, please note that the accommodation does NOT include a cooker (but there is a microwave), dishwasher, clothes washer or air conditioning.
Please tell us something about yourself and your fellow travellers, and have a picture of yourself on your profile.
We can probably be flexible with book-in and book-out times with prior notice, but we insist on meeting you when we hand over the keys. Please note that we can't meet you after 10pm, so no booking-in after that time.
An additional mattress is available if you wish to sleep four people. The mattress will just squeeze in to the bedroom, or can be left in the living area.
The accommodation size should be fine for 2 adults plus 2 children; it might be a bit small for 4 adults to share
We live in a quiet neighbourhood, so guests must be prepared to be quiet and respectful of our neighbours.
No unbooked and unregistered guests allowed
I was born and raised in England, and I've been living in New Zealand for over 10 years now. I am based in Auckland with my husband and two children. I work in real estate which is a job I love because I enjoy meeting people. We renovated our guest house for our family who were visiting, and now they've returned home it seems a shame to leave it empty.
