We have taken every step we can to create minimal waste and harm to our environment - With up-cycled decor, the use of natural resources and a composting toilet.
“We loved our stay at Kowhai Cottage! The hosts were super approachable and easy going, even going out of their way to help me break into my suitcase I had locked myself out of =P A cosy space and a unique experience that I didn’t expect to find in Auckland. The location was great for us as it was away from the busyness of the city, but not too far to head back into town. The personal touches of having some fridge/pantry items available, as well as a bath bomb and candles helped us to feel at home and enjoy the space more. Even though there are other houses on the property it still felt private and didn’t take away from our experience.”
Relax and enjoy the backdrop of native bush and bird song that surrounds you in this unique location. SCENIC RIDGE sits atop a ridge in the beautiful Waitakere Ranges with a breathtaking view of Auckland to the east and the ranges to the west.
“The place is beautiful! Wonderful view. Big bathroom, 2 bedrooms. Trudy and David were very friendly. Be aware the house number is 112 and not 12, that house number does not exist. We weren’t the only ones looking for that number according to the neighbours. For the light sleeper; bring earbuds as you can hear some noise from upstairs as David en Trudy live above the airbnb. But we were not bothered at all. Would def stay again!”
Warm, light and airy self contained contemporary one bedroom flat. Basic kitchen with two hobs. Deck overlooking paddocks. Five minutes drive from Swanson station (happy to pick up and drop off if timing works). Situated in Waitakere Ranges foothills close to West Coast beaches. The flat is attached to our main house but has a seperate entrance around the back of the house off the deck.
“Our stay with Kathy and Mark has been wonderful. Such a warm welcoming right from the start and they have gone above and beyond to cater to our every need. Gorgeous views from the balcony and the hot tub is just the icing on the cake. Endless amounts of information on local walks, hikes and places to visit. I couldn’t recommend this stay anymore. Big thank you and hope to visit here again.”
