Everything was great, wide variety of breakfast foods and great host with adorable pup who is good with everyone. Was a short drive to event I went to, so it was a great location with many dining choices just down the street. Will definitely book again.

We stayed at Lisa’s Cosy Garden Retreat for one night as flying out of Auckland the next day. We arrived in the afternoon and had dinner in the city even though when going for a walk around the area there is plenty of restaurants within 500m. Lisa can recommend many of them as she does a Food tour within this community. She is very knowledgeable about the local areas so can advise on many things to do and where to eat. Lisa is very helpful, friendly and sociable but still gives you space. The room and bed was very comfortable. Good sized bathroom and shower. The garden is very relaxing and has lots of fresh fruit and veges. Breakfast included cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit juice from the garden and homemade jam as well as hot drinks. Lisa currently has a Labrador puppy which is going to be a guide dog for the blind so he is well trained and lovable. Plenty of parking on site and a quiet, safe neighbourhood. I would definitely stay here again when visiting Auckland as very central to shops, city center, Eden Park and airport.

About Lisa

I love to travel myself and use Airbnb when I am away from home. Now we are sharing our lovely house and garden with guests.
Lisa is a keen cook and gardener and likes to grow her own fruit and vegetables organically.
Her business is as a local food tour guide so she has lots of tips about where to eat and things to do in Auckland.
Lisa is also a volunteer for the Blind foundation guide dogs in training so there maybe a well behaved dog staying, cuddles are free!
