A cosy and welcoming home, with a beautiful private garden. Close to transport, Auckland city, beaches, cafes and forests. Accommodation is comfortable, with a guest lounge and hot drinks selection always available.
We would love to welcome you here.
Situated in large and peaceful gardens, near Auckland City, New Zealand, this retreat is the perfect place to base yourself, to be close to city amenities but far enough away to enjoy peaceful seclusion.
Accommodation is simple and comfortable. This is a double/twin room available with a shared bathroom, which looks onto the garden. It includes a delicious breakfast. It can be booked as a single for one, or for two.
We do not have television, but broadband, yoga classes, a meditation room and a relaxing music collection are available to guests. We encourage guests to relax and enjoy the garden and nature and even to have a technology break.
We serve organic vegetarian food, and cater for special diets. Breakfast includes fresh fruit, home-made yoghurt, cereals, grainola or porridge, free range eggs, sourdough bread and home-made preserves. Delicious vegetarian lunches and dinners are available on request.
The Balanced Living Centre is located close to Titirangi Village, with its many cafes and restaurants, the Waitakere Ranges for bush walking and the dramatic West Coast beaches. It is 25 minutes drive from the airport and 20 minutes from Auckland city, close to excellent transport. We can pickup or drop of to the airport for $30 ( up to two people)
Surrounded by tall trees with abundant bird life, it is private and peaceful, yet within walking distance to shops, a train station, excellent restaurants, art galleries, cafes, beautiful bush walks and beaches.
Retreats are available which can include the use of the meditation room, natural spiritual healing (great for rebalancing after a long flight), progressive counselling/coaching for help when facing challenges. You can request silence, use of the library and enjoy a soak in the bath.

I am on the premises and can interact as much as guests prefer. Happy to help with car hire, maps and transport, suggestions for nice places to visit and eat.
We encourage guests to enjoy the peace here and have a good rest - even a technology break - although internet is available.
We prefer to have minimal alcohol in the house.
Smoking is only allowed outside.
We don't wear shoes inside but we can supply slippers!
We aim to keep a peaceful and restful atmosphere here as people often come on retreat, so its definitely not a party place.
There is parking available by the house but please let us know if you have a car in advance.
We welcome all people here.

You are welcome to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing stay. I have a background as an ecologist, theatre designer, project manager, event organiser and artist. Most recently designed interactive installations for museums.
The Garden Retreat is also called the Balanced Living Centre and now having retrained at the Self Raelization Meditation Healing Centre, I am teaching yoga and meditation and giving healing treatments to people and animals. I teach animal healing courses and Life Balance Courses, along with Progressive Counselling/Coaching.
