I live in a lovely little townhouse near Auckland City, yet far enough away that it's across the harbour bridge. We are in a mews of six and we have a close knit bunch of neighbours. The house is upstair/downstairs with the main living area upstairs and two bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs. Birkenhead has a lovely community feel and is 10 minutes from the city out of rush hour. It has some lovely bush walks, a good selection of cafes nearby and is a fairly quiet suburb.

The SpaceA studio in the jungle, but don't expect rusticity! You will have your own kitchenette/ bathroom/toilet. The studio is underneath our house, with separate access. - Very comfortable bed: good mattress and plush pillows - Simple kitchenette with Nescafe Gusto coffee machine, kettle, toaster, microwave and fridge/freezer (please note there is no stove/cooker). - BBQ in spring/summer - Wifi - SMART TV Full HD and DVD player - Table and chairs - Fresh linen and towels - Easy and free parking on the street (quiet cul-de-sac) - Coffee and tea provided - Juice, milk and muesli provided for your first breakfast - Possibility to use our washing machine; and we'll throw your dishes in our dishwasher (upstairs in our house) We also have glowworms at night at the back of our garden! For real! And you could even spot Tarzan if you look carefully :) Guest AccessYou will have access to your own studio and bathroom as well as our amazing subtropical garden (our own "jungle"). Weather permitting, you will be able to enjoy breakfasts and meals on the deck overlooking a fantastic bush visited by native birds. Interaction with GuestsYou will have your own personal space, but we will give you a couple of tips during your visit if you wish. We know this country inside out and can give you heaps of travel info for a memorable off-the-beaten-track holiday. The NeighborhoodBirkenhead is a very safe neighbourhood, with a center which has everything that you need (two supermarkets, post, banks, pubs, cafes, restaurants, take-aways etc.) It is also a very peaceful leafy area with native bush, the greenest suburb so close to the city; Very surprising to find this untouched nature less than 15 minutes from the Skytower. Getting AroundIf you have a car, you are a a 12 mn drive to the city (outside peak traffic hours which are 7-9am and 4-6pm and should be avoided) and only 10 minutes away from some of Auckland's best beaches (Takapuna and Milford) as well as lesser known but stunning Kendall's Bay in Birkenhead. If you don't have a car, you can walk to the supermarket and to various shops in Birkenhead (10-15 mn). The bus stop is nearby (8 mn walk) and frequent buses will take you to the city (20 mn) and to Takapuna (15 mn). Bus numbers that go to/from the city are the 973, 974 or 966. To come from the airport, we think the best is to take the Supershuttle, it will cost about $40 for one person and $65 for two people and will make one or two other stops along the way. It takes about 45 minutes to one hour. A taxi or Uber will be around $80 to $90 depending on the time of the day and takes about 40 minutes outside peak traffic hours. We can also provide you some tips to hire FREE one-way rental cars and campervans in New Zealand. Other Things to NoteThe kitchenette is intended for simple meals only since there are no hot plates/stove. The BBQ and microwave can be used for cooking food.

You can even go for a night walk to check out the glow worms along the banks of the stream - just a five minutes walk down the track from the apartment. Yet it is only minutes away from Birkenhead village where you can sample many award winning cafes and restaurants and a variety of shops including supermarkets. Check out local art gallaries and gift shops. We love living here because it's so close to the city but so quiet and peaceful.

Other Things to NoteThis is a new listing - please see our previous home for host reviews. We have lovely friendly neighbours who will respect your privacy, but be there should you need anything. We share our driveway with the neighbours at 6A so please be respectful and don't block their access or drive further down into their driveway. Also be mindful of this if you have small children as visibility on the driveway can be restricted. We have 6 big goldfish fish in our garden pond. We can have a neighbour feed them during your stay but if you would like to have complete privacy you can feed them yourself. They have about 2 teaspoons worth of fish-food (located on the shelf in the laundry) twice a week. Or you can feed them daily (give them a bit less) if you want to - a fun task for pre-shoolers :) There is a large black plastic compost bin, you can see it from the lounge, tucked a way to the right. Feel free to use it only if you want to, it can be a bit of a trek in winter. You can put anything in here except meat scraps.

If you are here for a long stay you can put tied council bags (orange ones provided) on the footpath by the driveway on Wednesday mornings for collection as the cleaner will not remove them during your stay.

    The SpaceThe house was architect-designed in Japanese style in 1963 for a well-known painter and fibre artist. We've retained the original cedar, with copper touches, stained wood joinery and wood floors, but have added extensive decking that follows the sun. There's a small vege garden for summer eating, productive fruit trees and a bee-hive. The house is tucked down a long driveway. On the other side of the property is a public pathway through the bush that leads around to the picturesque Little Shoal Bay (you look down on it from the Harbour Bridge). Swimming only at high tide, but the city and bridge views are unbeatable at any time. The sunny loft-like rooms have views of native trees (and noisy birdsong). The queen-sized room has closets, a chaise for reading or naps and a collection of thrift shop framed tapestries. The second room is set up as breakfast/sitting room with a vintage day bed and loft bed/bunk (both single). No air-con, but fans in each room. There's free wifi, or plenty of great books and magazine on local design, food, walking and cycling around our city. The bathroom is comfortably not vintage. There's a fridge, cereals and coffee come in 1970s pottery. We'll welcome you with tea and coffee supplies, bread, preserves (including honey from our bees), and supply kettle, toaster, blender and panini press. Let us know if you prefer gluten or dairy-free.
