This listing is for the 2nd bedroom for Titirangi Waterfront. Includes double bed, louvre windows, seagrass carpet and a forest view. Set in a big garden on estuary edge. Portacot and bluetooth speaker available. Beautiful coastal and forest walks.

The space

The house is light, and airy and nestled in the forest but is elevated for full sun, with large decks. It is peaceful and private and has a glimpse of the water from the house. There are great views from most of the windows. Also there is a bush track down to the beautiful estuary of Little Muddy Creek. In this area there are numerous beautiful walks both from the house and further afield, both coastal and in the forest and a children's playground is a short bush walk away. There is a bus right at the gate that goes into New Lynn and leaves every hour at 8.30, 9.30, 10.30pm etc.

Guest access

All guests have access to all of the living space in the house (except my office). The bathroom is new. The kitchen is original but roomy.

Interaction with guests

I like to interact with my guests and I love a great conversation and hearing your stories. However I also really like silence and quiet.... and as there are many beautiful birds in the garden, the forest and the estuary, then its lovely to hear them chiming away and this place is about sanctuary, relaxing and rejevenation. Then again on occasion we also like to turn the music up and dance around the living room or the garden when it feels right.
Generally I like to do yoga and work on my book in the morning and interact more fully with my guests in the late afternoon and evening and even if possible share a meal or two. Also happy to cook separately also and give my guests the space they need. There is a cupboard in the kitchen and space in the fridge for guests food. Cooked meals are available on request for a charge but must be advised at time of booking so I can be prepared.

Other things to note

Please indicate in your booking whether or not you require separate rooms. There are two bedrooms available and they each have a double bed. Each room costs $50 per night for the first person and another $25 for the second. If you are booking for two people wanting separate rooms the charge will be $100 per night. The Air BnB price of $75 relates to a couple booking 1 room.

Also if you are backpackers and want to do a special deal in exchange for some help in the garden, or firewood etc....then request the dates and then send me an enquiry and I'm happy to negotiate.

There is also a recycling bin outside the laundry door for empty bottles and cans. If you do have a lot of rubbish at the end of a long stay in New Zealand I can give you a rubbish bag for $2.50.

Staying at Jaqs' was like coming home to visit an old friend. Her spirit is so welcoming and accommodating. We clicked immediately, which made my entire stay fun and enjoyable. The property is hard to find at first (just go all the way down the driveway), but once there, you find a home that is nestled in paradise. There was some mishap due to my own poor planning (crossing the date line really wrecked my schedule), but Jaqs went out of her way to make sure I got there safely. And once I did, I was able to drop my bags and just relax there so easily. The home is immaculate and filled with such positive & beautiful energy. Walking in and through, a sense of peace washes over you. It's surrounded by a carefully managed garden, then a multi-layered variety of trees, fern, and bush. After that, it's a quick stroll to sand, beach, and water. Everything is well maintained and there's so much charm from the items Jaqs has collected from her travels and friends. You can't help but be more calm and centered while you're here. Jaqs, herself, is a darling spirit. Even though she was busy with her book she found time to walk me around the area and lunch with her visiting friends. We had many great talks, but remained respectful of each other's time and space. The property is right off a bus stop that goes into the village and nearby town, but they run infrequently, so having a car may be ideal for some. I got along fine without one. I was sad to leave and disappointed that I lost a day with the time difference, but still happy and grateful for the experience. I can't wait to come back!

Jaqs was an excellent host, warm, friendly, and generous with her time and company. I felt at home throughout my stay, and what a great, relaxing home it is - airy, light, with lush scenery filling every window. There are pleasant coastal walks right from the doorstep, and it's perfectly located between the city and the incredible Waitakere Ranges. Surely the best place to stay in Auckland!

Just an amazing place where to relax outside the city! Jaqs is an awesome host, she helps you whenever you need it, she is ready to show and to talk about the beautiful place where she lives. When I left the house, I had the feeling that I left for the second time my house in my country. I felt free, I felt at home when I was there. Wonderful person, wonderful place where to stay few or more days to enjoy the landscape. Thank you for the time I passed with you, I'll remember it !

Jaqs was a wonderful host, her home is in a beautiful and peaceful location close to great walking tracks and all the conveniences of the city. Her hospitality made my arrival in New Zealand a joy when I could have been a nightmare. I'll definitely be coming back next time I stay in Auckland.

I am a writer, architect and ecological designer. I also do yoga, and am a keen gardener. I've travelled widely and most recently spent a year in Paris working on a book. I utterly love the landscape where I live. In the 13 years since I have lived here it has been a source of incredible joy to live with such beauty. I feel very blessed and love to share this with my guests. I'm happy to give you the space and quiet you need, and interact if you need that also...You can let me know either way.
I will do everything humanely possible to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. However I have half an acre of land to look after alongside the running of the house so just to point out that I am a human being not a hotel.
