Our place is on the water with gorgeous views, family-friendly playgrounds, and Auckland's best beaches nearby. You’ll love our place because you are a short ferry ride from the city, the tranquility, and me and my family (our boys are 5 and 4), your friendly hosts.
This large room is 16x11ft and can be made into two beds or one king-sized bed. We have an airbed which we can bring in if you have children (we also have a 2nd room that you can rent). Kids will love our trampoline!

The space

Bayswater on Auckland's sought after North Shore is the closest suburb to the city: a short ferry ride away, yet a relaxing waterfront solace for when you have finished your day's activities.
Our place is on the water, and you can use our two seater kayak, and if you have kids, they will love our trampoline and ping pong table.
This room has two beds which can be converted to a King Sized bed if you are travelling alone or as a couple.
And if you have kids, we have an inflatable bed that he/she can use - it is a very large room so there is plenty of room to sleep two adults and two children.
This room gets the morning sun so you will awake revitalized from your slumber on our brand new beds.
There is a bathroom on your floor (the ground floor) - our family all sleep upstairs and our bathroom is up there so you may have the bathroom to yourself if no one else is booked in the other room.
My wife is French so if your French is better than your English, you are in good hands!

Guest access

Apart from your room, you can access our lounge, deck, lawns, trampoline, kayak, ping pong table, shared bathroom and you will be served a Continental breakfast.
You can also use our clothes washer.
There is no kitchen access, but you are free to make tea and coffee at any time.

Interaction with guests

My wife Audrey and I are available to give you any assistance, and want you to get the most out of your time in Auckland...I run a travel company, am born and bred here in Auckland and will gladly give you some insider tips!

Other things to note

We have two young boys, aged 4 and 5, who typically wake around 6:30am and for the most part are quiet in the morning, but boys being boys, we cannot guarantee that you will never hear them.

Audrey was a lovely and gracious host to me and two friends (Chris was away this weekend). The house is beautiful and well appointed and the views are to doe for. The patio table is an excellent place to enjoy a cup of tea and watch the wind surfers on a fine day.

Chris and Audrey were lovely hosts. They were accomodating in our request to check in earlier and were always on hand when we needed advise. We would recommend their house to any person looking for a place to stay in Auckland. The location is close to the centre yet far enough away for a peaceful sleep and to escape the Auckland traffic. We would come back here to stay again.

This is a best in class Airbnb experience in a world class city. Chris and Audrey are genuinely interested in making your stay with them, and time in New Zealand as enjoyable as it possibly can be. Highly Highly Recommended!

I have just returned to New Zealand after living in London the last 10 years, living back in the home I grew up in, this time with my wife and two boys aged 4 and 5.
I run a travel company and my favorite travel destinations (apart from New Zealand) are:
1. Iceland
2. Argentina
3. Galapagos Islands
4. Morocco
5. Thailand
My favorite books are:
1. April Fool's Day
2. The Power of One
3. The Graveyard Book
My favorite movies are:
1. Inception
2. Elf
3. Top Gun
My favorite shows:
1. Into the Woods
2. Rent
3. The Lion King
(I am sure Hamilton would be a favorite, if I could ever get a ticket!)
My favorite food:
1. Thai
2. Mexican
3. Indian
(I can share with you the best restaurants in Auckland for these if you like!)
My style of hosting is to be welcoming and help you feel at home, give you insider travel tips to get the most out of your time in Auckland (a lot of the best things Auckland has to offer are "under the radar" and you need local knowledge to really enjoy your time here)...and then give you your space.
My life motto is "seize the day!"
