The apartment is a modern loft style studio above our garage and separated from our house.
A high curved ceiling and tall north facing windows provide a spacious sunny environment. The bed is queen size with high quality linen. The sitting area contains a 46" High definition LCD TV and a couch which folds out to a comfortable futon slat bed.
The kitchen is equipped with sink, fridge, 2 element cook top, microwave, and expandable dining table. There is a unique self contained wetroom ensuite - think bathroom on a boat. Egyptian Cotton towels are provided.
Outside is nicely landscaped with a big goldfish pond, a paved area, and plenty of shade provided by a feijoa and grapefruit tree, and an ancient plum tree.
A DIY continental breakfast with home baked bread is included, and feel free to use the BBQ. Free WiFi is provided.
The studio apartment is situated in sought after Pt Chevalier. We are located just 10 minutes by car to the City Centre and close to motorway links to the North Shore, West Coast beaches and vineyards, and all points south. It is also easy access to the airport motorway.
The nearest bus stop is located just 100m away. The bus into the city centre runs every 15 minutes and the journey is 15 to 20 minutes.
There is a dairy (7/11 store) and a fast food outlet conveniently located across the road. There are also several food outlets in the area including a nice Italian Restaurant just a 3 minute walk away. There are also 2 cafes within a 5 minute walk and its a 10 minute walk to Pt Chevalier shops where there are more cafes and restaurants, 2 pubs, a supermarket, pharmacy, post office and library. Mt Albert's 'little asia' is also a great place for budget eateries and its just a 5 min drive away.

Interakcija s gostima
We respect our guests privacy, but are available at any time for help and information.
The stairs to the loft are quite steep so may not be suitable for the infirm.
We are happy to help with the luggage at check-in.
We are on the corner of a through road so there is traffic noise as some reviews have noted. We have only had one elderly couple who found the noise intolerable, but if you are super-sensitive to noise please give this some consideration before you book.
No disabled access
No house rules otherwise!
Flexible check-in and check-out times
Recently retired architect. I've converted my office to this self contained studio apartment.
We're in a great area of Auckland, well served by transport, facilities, and natural amenities.
Maggie and I are young at heart and enjoy meeting travelers from all over.
Interests include travel, photography, cooking, cycling, restoring old bikes, and designing the perfect goldfish pond.
Like every Kiwi bloke, regards himself an ace on the BBQ.
Could be persuaded to whip up his signature smoked salmon. Price negotiable!
