The space

Welcome To Chatswood -

Located on Auckland's North Shore, only 10 minutes by car from central Auckland or 20 minutes by bus, is our beautiful villa style home.

Our home is large, comfortable and features a pool and lovely garden, along with wonderful city views.

Our guest room is located downstairs and has french doors opening out to the courtyard entrance. The room is fully furnished, and clean linen and towels are provided for your convenience.

You will have use of the downstairs bathroom which may be shared with 1 other person at the most. You will have access to the washing machine. You will also have access to FREE wifi and use of the pool.

Breakfast is included and consists of yoghurt,fruit and fruit juice, or tea/espresso, with homemade bread and various spreads and cereals. Many allergies can also be accomodated with 3 days notice. Although the kitchen is not for general use of guests you are welcome to store food in our pantry and fridge.

Our home is located only a 5 minute walk from the nearest supermarket and less than 10 minutes to many other local shops. Great restaurants from Asian cuisine, to Japanese to Dutch and local fare are all within walking distance.

The nearest bus stop is just a short walk away, with regular bus services into the city. It takes approx 20mn and there is a superb view of the city from the bridge. There is also off street parking available if you are arriving by car. We live in a quiet little cul de sac so parking is never a problem on our street.

There are plenty of beautiful places to explore on the North Shore including a lovely native mini forest just 5 minutes walk from the house, and while we are not far from the city you will truly feel as though you are in a quiet haven away from the bustle at night when you stay here.

Your hosts Melina and Celim are a Kiwi and French couple. We are a small family with two children, Emmy and Alexia. We are well traveled and love meeting people from overseas.

Melina is a Bowen Therapist specialising in sports injuries, back pain, sciatica and other problems. You are welcome to book sessions in to bring your aching body back to life.

Check out is 11am.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Auckland. My husband and I along with our 4 year old spent two blissful days & nights in this cozy-yet private suite. The view city from their backyard was better than photographs can capture. We truly were just a few couple of minutes…
