Beautiful studio room under owners' house. Well appointed and stocked. Lovely bed and bath linen. Views to die for.... we watched the Americas Cup yachts sail up the Tamaki Strait on one of their practice days, while sitting on the deck sipping beers. Location is excellent, but you need sturdy legs and lungs for the access, the paths are steep whichever way you choose to climb or descend. We chose to park at the bottom of the pathway that leads to the gate for direct access to the studio. Not that we minded. It was but one tiny minus when there are so many positives. The hosts are lovely and Chris is very helpful. We recommend this studio.
We stayed with Chris and Julie in January this year for four nights. They were wonderful hosts. Our unit was modern, clean and quiet with a great view of the ocean from a nice deck. The two of them went above and beyond as hosts. Once Chris determined we were avid hikers, he took the time to built us a custom list of must do's while in NZ. You don't need Travelocity when you have hosts like this. Really enjoyed our stay.
What an amazing place. Stayed in the zen room for 3 nights, stunning views, modern comfortable room, lovely outdoor deck with lots of tui, kereru, fantails, and butterfly around. Chris and Julie were lovely and really accommodating, welcoming. Many Thanks and we hope to return again soon for another relaxing weekend!
