Welcome to our little resort. We offer you not only a comfortable bed, spacious apartment, but a heated pool and a spa at your doorsteps. And all that within a walking distance to the beach, excellent local restaurants (many of which by the beach), beautiful parks, and a 20 min ride to downtown. Our place is good for anybody wanting something more than just a room: a little holiday even if you come for a night. We are in a very quiet street and the place is totally separate from the main house.

The space
The pool house has a bedroom, a lounge, and a bathroom. In the bedroom you will find a queen bed with a super comfortable and hypoallergenic latex mattress. There is also a special space for putting your suitcases so you can have comfortable access to your things plus a small clothes rack with hangers is provided. There is a TV in the bedroom.
In the lounge there are: a fridge, a kettle, a microwave, a toaster, plates and cutlery, tea and coffee making facilities. Plus a leather sofa and a table with chairs.
There is a cupboard in the bathroom for extra storage.

The guests can use the heated pool and spa in the summer season (Labor weekend-Anzac Day for the pool and from end of Sept to beginning of June for the Spa). You will share them with our family but we will respect your space and aim to use them when you are not in the pool house. We never use the spa in the evening so you are welcome to enjoy a hot bath under the stars in full privacy after a long day of activities and sightseeing or work.
Our place is different from many other listings. We are inviting you to a truly holiday experience. A great neighborhood with beaches, amazing parks and walks, awesome dining, and a quiet little house where you can relax by the pool or in the spa. Yes we do not have a full kitchen, but who needs a kitchen on holidays. You come here to relax not to cook :-) And we have an array of great restaurants and takeaways near by ( Italian, Spanish, French, Thai, Indian, German, Japanese, even Austrian name... it... all few minutes away from here). We are proud of our neighborhood. Where else you would be only 20 min from downtown and yet could go for a walk among the cows or relax on a secluded beach with no one around. Come to experience it for yourself. For a short holiday or just a romantic weekend away with your partner. It is worth it!! It is also great if you come for work; there is a table for you laptop, free WiFi (super fast Fiber internet connection) , and if you need a break, you can hop in for a swim in the pool.

Guest access
There is a separate access to the back section of the house along the main house so you will have a full flexibility to enter. There is always parking space on our street.

Other things to note
1. Traditional Kiwi breakfast cereal (Weet-Bix) is provided together with milk.
2. Plunger coffee and various types of tea are also provided.
3. The pool and spa facilities are for the use of Airbnb guests only.
4. The pool and spa are open for use only in the summer season: for the Pool is it from from Labor Weekend to Anzac Day Weekend. For the Spa from beginning of September to the beginning of June. If the weather allows, we extend this time slightly but it is not guaranteed.
5. We can help to arrange a transport from and to the airport as my friend is an Uber driver who lives locally and he is happy to help my guests. I can arrange that if you wish.
6. The regular check out time is 11 AM. Slight extension of the check-out time is possible if the following night is not booked and that cannot be confirmed until the same day as we are taking the reservations until 11 AM for the same day. The day stay is possible if availability allows in case your flight leaves at night for 50% of the nightly rate. That can be booked in advance.

Auckland, New Zealand

St Heliers is a beach village - the last bay of the spectacular waterfront. It has amazing cafes, restaurants, and shopping most of which overlook the sea. There are few parks around with views, amazing walks, and picnic spots. Glover Park with the most amazing view is only 15 min walk from the house. Downtown is 20 min drive away and the road takes you thru the most spectacular water front journey. Apart from low tide the beach is fantastic for swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking. You can rent a kayak from the beach and paddle across to Rangitoto. The sunrises and sunsets are unforgettable. St Heliers is truly heaven on Earth.
