Our B&B in Mt Eden
Covid Update March 2021
We are all too aware how disruptive Covid has been to travellers! If you make a booking with us and have to cancel due to a Covid Lockdown then we will not charge any cancellation fee. Just let us know the day or earlier before arrival.
Any questions you have regarding staying during these trying times please just ask.
Welcome to our historic 1880's villa in the quiet, leafy central Auckland suburb of Mt Eden. Since buying the home in 1991 we have lovingly restored it retaining all of its heritage character while incorporating all modern amenities such as central heating and under floor heating in the bathroom. We have been hosting our B&B since 2017 and it has been our pleasure to receive guests from all around the world.
Mt Eden is a fantastic heritage suburb in central Auckland with easy access to the city, airport, shopping, restaurants and Eden Park.
The booking is for a 2 bedroom suite with the main guest bedroom having its own well appointed bathroom. There is also a second smaller bedroom available with its own wonderful vintage style toilet.
This suite option is perfect for a couple, friends or 2 couples travelling together. In this case, the main bathroom (shower) would be shared by both rooms. Both rooms have very comfortable Queen beds with pure cotton sheets and feather duvets.
You have you own large private guest lounge with TV to relax in along with several outdoor seating areas to enjoy.
Please note that we only accept one reservation at a time, so you will have the full house to yourselves (apart from us).
Sorry - we don't accept children under the age of 12 as our home has many breakable items.
If you are travelling on business we are a great alternative to a Hotel with our quiet comfortable environment.
We work from our home studio so are always available if you need us. Heather is an Internationally famous teddy bear artist making amazing collectors bears - www.dlyellbears.com We will do our best to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible and you can see as much or as little of us as you like. Access to our home is easy with only 1 small step at the front door and 4 at the back door. No smoking inside but outside in the garden areas is fine.
At both ends of Grange Rd are excellent bus services into the CBD (every 10 min at peak times). There is also an excellent shared shuttle van service from the airport to our door or use the Airport Bus. Taxis and Uber are readily available and if you are driving, we are easy to find and well positioned to motorways and only 20 mins from the airport. Secure off street parking is provided.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home!
