The fully self contained, central Auckland studio is on the ground floor of a converted engineering factory, now transformed into five modern private apartments where all the apartment owners live. The building's austere, commercial outer appearance gives no hint of the secluded and unique accommodation contained within. Totally transformed and awaiting you on the ground floor of this converted city factory is the modern, fully self contained Studio. Upstairs is the owners loft style apartment. The Studio decor reflects an international feel and definitely has that Wow factor - be prepared to be surprised. Your unique, central city retreat awaits you.
Sky City, many superb restaurants, cafes, pubs and lively hip nightlife are all within walking distance along with hairdressing, beauty Spa and gyms.
This is a very dynamic, changing part of Auckland city CBD. Many of the city's older commercial buildings are being converted or replaced with quality apartments, restaurants and cafes which is transforming and providing a new vitality and livability to this part of the city. This transformation brings construction to the area. With construction hours tightly controlled by the Auckland Council, thick walls and double glazing you are assured of minimal noise disturbance. Guests say "we're here to explore the city not lie around sleeping during the day, it's definitely the perfect spot for a' local kiwi' experience."
New Zealand is an adventure playground. Explore Auckland CBD and New Zealand's coastal and city cycle ways. Secure on-site garaging can be provided for your bikes - please advise if you require this. Or use the Studio's medium sized mountain bike and helmet.
If you would like to return for a 1 night stay, (maybe when you pass back through Auckland or before you fly out of New Zealand) and your booking fits into a space on the calendar please send a message so I can help. Also happy to care for some of your luggage while you travel out of Auckland for a few days. eg to the Bay of Islands or Rotorua
Long term bookings welcomed. Please inquire.
Airbnb hosts, with proof of listing number, will be offered a special rate for bookings of 3 nights or more. Guest AccessThe Studio is central, totally self contained and has its own private entry, accessed at ground level. Your host will provide keys on your arrival. If for some unexpected reason you can't be met personally you will receive clear information about where to locate the keys. I like to welcome you so this hardly ever happens.
Parking is just outside the Studio, in the Studio's private, dedicated off street parking space.
TIP: If you start your NZ journey in Auckland, a car is not needed while you are at the Studio because it is so central. You can rent your car when you are ready to leave town. Major car rental companies and lesser known budget rental car companies are close by.
Also if you end your journey in Auckland, return your car in the city and take public transport to the airport. I appreciate how every penny counts when you are traveling.
Special offer: Guests arriving into New Zealand early or departing late can check in or out, outside the stated arrival/departure times - please advise your travel requirements as soon as known.
When departing guests and new arrivals overlap, some co-operation is required so that cleaning and provisioning can be completed and the Studio ready and perfect for you. I'll do my best to accommodate your itinerary.
I'm happy to discuss keeping the Studio available for you the night before your early morning arrival or night of late departure, at a reduced rate, so that you have access to it to suit your travel needs. This will be dependent on existing bookings. Please let me know how I can help. Interaction with GuestsYour host will meet and warmly welcome you on arrival and is available before and during your stay to assist with any questions or help you may need. Sharing local city and country knowledge with you so you have the best possible experience in Auckland city and New Zealand is my goal.
As a frequent traveler and an international Airbnb user I understand what makes for perfect accommodation and hosting balanced with your need for privacy.
I love to chat about travel, to hear your stories and get to know you.

The NeighborhoodThis hip, commercial part of the city is where the creative and techno savvy brains congregate. It is so close to the CBD, excellent cafes, top celebrity chef restaurants, boutique brewery, wood fired bagel cafe, plus pubs, theatres, casino, parks, gyms, walkways and public transport.
