This was our last stop in New Zealand and it was perfect! The views were amazing and the walk to the local restaurant and movie theater was quite nice. We stayed with 3 of our children and all were very happy!

My wife and I stayed here with our 9 month old baby, twice, for a week each as a book-end to a business-trip this past summer. Every single one of the 8 total days was absolutely perfect.

I stayed with 3 friends February 2011 for 2 nights before starting our big NZ road trip. We wished we had stayed longer. It was the day of the earthquake when we arrived and even though the owners were busy checking on family and friends, they welcomed us warmly. The unit is really lovely with cooking facilities and comfy beds.... More

We planned to stay at No 1 for 18 nights on and off during our 27 day tour of the North Island, hopping back to Auckland when there was a game at Eden Park, as our main reason for going to New Zealand was that the Rugby World Cup was on. We stayed in the Green and the White rooms... More

Good website, easy to book rooms, friendly hosts who responded quickly to questions by email. Lots of information given before we even arrived. About 30 mins drive from the airport, straight across the bridge, and there you are. Easy parking - underneath the actual bridge, it's that close! I wouldn't want to live there permanently - too noisy - but... More
