A true oasis in the city, private garden, separate entrance, pool, outdoor spa, spacious living quarters, new full kitchen and new bathroom. Located across from a mountain reserve, complete with grazing cows. 5 minutes walk to train station, then less than 18 minutes by modern train to Auckland city centre and waterfront. Very private, ideal location to start or finish your NZ holiday.
Inside the space is large, bright and designer decorated. Cool in summer and cosy in winter with electric blankets and heat pump. Very family-friendly, can accommodate 2 children, cot and high chair available. For family safety, please be aware that apartment leads directly out to the pool. Separate laundry.
