The Queen size mezzanine bedroom on the first floor is accessible by a kauri handmade staircase. The ground main level features a living room with double sofa-bed, desk, antique chairs and dresser with large flat TV and CD players.

5/5 Excellent

All is great about this place!
The location is excellent, being very close to Onehunga train, bus and mall. One bus to the airport or one train downtown. The hosts were kind and stored our bikes and bags while we went shopping! Loads of shopping and restaurants nearby, including Countdown. It has a full kitchen for those wanting to eat in. It feels like home with a very comfy bed, couch, and even washer and dryer. You will want to spend more than one night!
