To be at Helen and Mike home was a great experience. The couple are very friendly and helpful with tips about New Zealand. The accommodations are very comfortable and have good privacy.

I booked Mike and Helen’s place on behalf of my sister and brother-in-law, who visited Auckland from Hamilton for a bit of an outing, and some much-needed R&R. The booking process went without a hitch, and communication with Helen was easy and pleasant. Concerning the accommodation, this is what my sister and her husband have shared: “What wonderful people, what a warm welcome, and what a beautiful room, bathroom, and garden. Mike and Helen’s genuine hospitality made us feel so at home, and we can’t remember the last time we had such spontaneous and enjoyable conversation with people we had never met before. Everything was absolutely immaculate and most comfortable. We had the best sleep - great mattress on the bed! The special wee touches, like the coffee, tea, and biscuits in our room, were much appreciated, while our breakfast was generous and tasty. We want to thank Mike and Helen for an absolute perfect overnight stay; you made us feel so special and welcome. Not far from the beach and located in a lovely residential area, staying in the Garden Room was an absolute treat, and we felt truly pampered. We cannot recommend this Airbnb highly enough. Thank you so much.”

Hi Alta - thank you all for your truly lovely review - it was our pleasure - your sister and brother in law are such good people; as I mentioned, we have lots in common...I do hope Jacob's new job goes well and he settles in. Please pass on our very best wishes and we hope to meet again some time. Blessings, Helen & Mike

The room is a great size, large enough for two travellers with plenty of draws, cupboard space and room for your suitcases. A lovely tea & coffee making space too. Wonderful bathroom with large shower. Everything was super clean and bed incredibly comfortable with quality linen. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of it. Welcoming and warm hosts. Home is well located. Love it!

We're a well-travelled couple who enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I can speak French, some Italian, Spanish and German. Enjoy walking, reading, cooking and attending the odd show, specially musicals. We've both been very involved in sport, cycling, rugby, basketball and rowing in particular.
