After 10 days in Australia, my husband & I spent 4 nights at Helen & Jack’s home before beginning a trip around NZ. We did laundry, relaxed in their comfortable apt & enjoyed trips into the city by taking the nearby train. It was such a treat to have breakfast food supplied, including homemade jam & Helen’s fruitcake. How wonderful it was to end our days in their lovely backyard enjoying the hot tub while watching the sun set. This is a delightful place to stay! You will only regret having to check out.
We really couldn’t have asked for better hosts. Helen and Jack gave us a very warm Kiwi welcome. The hot tub was amazing after the rainy winter weather gave me the chills. Fresh fruit and yummy homemade orange bread. Nespresso machine. I could go on and on. The location right on a train line into the city was great also. I would definitely recommend this gem and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
There is nothing more comforting or appreciated than walking into a bed and breakfast that you have reservations for and finding it a true oasis. We were tired from our long flight from the U.S. and when we discovered how amazing our accommodations were, we couldn't believe it. As the previous writers mentioned, Helen and Jack were the sweetest, kindest hosts one could ask for. We were delighted to find goodies, even Helen's delicious blueberry muffins! We were close to transportation, and in a great area for walks and hikes. The pool and hot tub outside our bedroom door were Devine. And, when it was time to leave, Jack made sure we had safe, efficient transport to our destination. Will we be back? Oh my yes, and this time, our stay will be longer. Thank you Helen and Jack.
Had a lovely stay at this excellent location.The accommodation was of a high standard and what made our stay memorable was the hospitality shown by the hosts including home made cake!
A brilliant example of their thoughtfulness was that when I walked up Mount Wellington and got caught in a heavy squall and Jack appeared in his car to rescue me
Very near Panmure Station and shopping centre so convenient also
Lovely helpful hosts and perfect location for easy 15 minute travel into city as train station 5 minutes away and we were given hop cards which you just top up for any journey- also lovely comfortable accommodation and Helen and Jack were wonderful- home from home and recommend this Oasis in the City to anyone- nothing was too much trouble for them
