“Home from home”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

We spent three nights with Lesley and Gordon in their delightful home on the north shore a mere 10 minute walk from the ferry to the Bayswater ferry terminal and a 12 minute trip across the harbour to central Auckland.

The Bayswater ferry is not as frequent as that from nearby Devonport but there was always the option of being dropped off in Devonport so we took the opportunity to be dropped here, explore this picturesque town before going across to the central ferry terminal. Returning we scheduled the Bayswater link so there was no need for a lift and didn't present a problem.

We were treated as long lost friends and even shared a meal and the 7's rugby final with them ... accompanied by a welcome beer or two.

The breakfasts were more than adequate - wholesome and a work of art whilst the bed boasted crisp cotton sheets and in the shower - big fluffy white towels.

In a way it was sad to leave such a welcoming atmosphere but rest assured we will call again when we come back to Auckland.

Well done and thanks Lesley and Gordon and remember you know where we live.

Room Tip: Research and book early. check the ferry times.

This bed and breakfast was within walking distance or an easy bus ride to sites we wanted to see. The ferry to Auckland and some of the closer islands was convenient from the location. The hosts were very helpful, providing maps, guide books, bus and ferry schedules. They even provided transportation to Devonport early one morning after we arrived, as one of our bags did not make it on our flight and my husband needed to purchase some clothing. We were very impressed with the lovely breakfast--fresh fruit, the best muesili, juices, baked goods--more than satisfying. Very clean rooms and bathroom, private sitting area and in a quiet neighbourhood, but within easy distance to busier Devonport and the sites, restaurants, etc. We would stay again on a return visit.

Room Tip: Private room ,with bathroom--soaker tub,

This would be the perfect B&B if it was in Devonport. Unfortunately all the good restaurants are just too far to walk to, but it's only a five minute drive. Beautiful bathroom, and perfect private sitting room.

We are very pleased to be located right here on the beautiful Bayswater peninsula on the North Shore in Auckland. Most of our guests choose us precisely because of our convenient location and have commented on how ideal it is.
A fast ferry ride to Auckland City operates from the marina, just a short walk to the end of our road. We are also on the direct bus route to Takapuna and Auckland City. The main North Shore town centre of Takapuna Beach, and also Devonport Village, are both just 5 minutes drive away. There is a multitude of good restaurants in these nearby centres and their surrounds, as well as shopping and theatres. Beaches and pleasant walks are all around; very close and easy to get to.
