Our home

Our home is a large wooden, character bungalow built in the 1920s. It has many original features such as the bay windows, native rimu polished floors and high plastered ceilings and yet it has been rennovated and modernized to facilitate an open plan style of living, with 2 separate lounges, a large dining room and an open plan kitchen complete with breakfast bar. Each living area opens out with French doors onto decks to catch the morning and afternoon sun. There is a gas BBQ and outdoor furniture on the decks so as to make the most of the outdoor lifestyle. The garden is fenced and private. Our home has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and an office with a wireless internet connection. Sky digital TV, VCR, and DVD is available in the lounge.

Who we are

  1. We are a married couple with grown children, aged 23, 21 and 18. My husband and I can now do some trips away, sans enfants, from time to time, (though of course at times the 'kids' will want to come too!!!)

  2. My husband is a marketing manager and I am a writer. We have lived in a number of countries including Spain, Belgium, Brazil, England and Chile. We would love to have the opportunity to spend some time again in some of the countries we loved as well as visit new places we haven't been.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are located in a quiet suburban street and neighbourhood. Being centrally located in a large city like Auckland, yet in a quiet suburban area, provides the best of both worlds, tranquility and yet very easy access to all the activities and facitilies that a large city offers. We are 3-4 minutes drive to St Lukes,a large shopping mall which provides all facilities that you require including a supermarket, foodcourt, movie theatre, restaurants and shops. We are just 7 minutes drive via motorway to the CBD. Here you have access to all the major sites and activites including the Viaduct restaurant area, Sky City Casino, Museum, Art Gallery, bungy jumping, the bridge climb, and the many beaches that surround Auckland, such as Mission Bay - a popular destination with a great beach, restaurants and kayak and bike hire for riding around the waterfront. For surfing, we are just 30 minutes to the West Coast beaches such as Piha. This area is renowned also for its many native bush walks and trekking. It is very easy to get out of town and experience nature and all that New Zealand has to offer as far as open spaces, deserted beaches, forest and bush walks, islands, horse riding etc. We are within walking distance to the zoo, just 20 minutes away and the beautiful Western Springs park with a lake full of swans, geese and ducks. We are just 500m or a 5 minute walk to an 18 hole golf course that is available to the public.
