Our home

Our apartment sits above our shop on the Mt Eden-Three Kings border - about 20 minutes drive from Queen St - and has three bedrooms, three balconies and 130sqm of space. It is up-to-the minute with a fully equipped Miele kitchen including induction cook-top and built-in expresso machine; a comfortable living area with modern leather furniture and a 42in Plasma screen, and two sylish bathrooms - one with wc, bath and shower; the other with wc and shower. The master bedroom is enormous, with en-suite and walk-in closets, and a second television (Sky equipped). Bi-folds open on to a large deck with wonderful elevated views. The other two bedrooms each have double beds; a queen in one and a double-sized murphy wallbed in the other. These two rooms are interconnecting, but have their own indvidual access as well. There is a full satellite television service, dvd, wireless broadband, and newspapers delivered daily. Bus service stops almost outside door, and a lovely park is directly across the road.

Who we are

  1. Richard and Brodwyn are both in their late 40s and have their own businesses. Richard is a journalist and has travelled the world for the past 20 years, and Brodwyn is a management consultant and is also an experienced traveller. So far we have enjoyed one, very successful, two month-long swap with an english couple. We have two grown-up children, Hailey (22) and Elliot (20), a wee collie named Jazz (who will be looked after by friends), and extended family throughout the country. We especially enjoy travelling and meeting new people.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Auckland is effectively situated on a extinct volcano field, and our apartment is situated directly across the road from a park in which you can stroll around grassy craters, and look out over several other former volcanoes - Mt Eden, Mt Wellington, Mt Albert and Mt Roskill, to name a few. From our home you can be at the airport in 20 minutes, the CBD within 20 minutes, on a range of golf courses within 15 minutes, or across the road in a fantastic coffee shop-cafe within 30 seconds! Restaurants about five minutes away. The City of Sails is the true gateway to the rest of the country and we have a middle-aged but well-maintained Audi V6 available. It takes only a couple of hours to drive into the stunning and winterless far north, and just a four-hour drive (or a 30 minute flight) to reach the ski-fields of the Central Plateau. If you're really in the mood for the skiing, though, the world-class Central Otago ski-fields in the South Island will take about 1hr40m by air. Rugby fans take note: Eden Park, venue for the 2011 RWC semis and final, is about five minutes' drive from our apartment.
