They were a lovely introduction to New Zealand, doing so much more than you would expect from a hotel or even a B&B. Keith took us for an afternoon's sailing in Auckland Harbour; Trish took us to M.J. Savage Memorial Park... More

Thank you Trich and Keith for making our first visit to New Zealand amazing. Lots of helpful advice and within easy walking distance of Auckland city centre. Frequent bus service if you don't fancy walking. Mission Bay close at hand too. Breakfasts were amazing and huge. We loved the penguin theme in the bedroom. Would love to visit again.
