Couldn't have been better looked after. Came for 4 nights, stayed for 17 due to COVID. Helen and Jack were amazing - her cooking and baking are brilliant. They were kind, caring and helpful and we will be forever grateful.

About the neighbourhood
Mt. Wellington, situated within the city proper is only 20 minutes from downtown Auckland. It is a residential neighborhood, with leafy tree-lined streets. The accommodation is directly across from a park-like reserve with hiking trails, wild pheasants and parrots and grazing cows. Lots of shopping and eateries are close by.
