"Kevin and Trish and wonderful hosts -- willing to take us to the supermarket and Trish gave us a lift into Auckland. Their house is well located a 5-10 minute drive from city center and close to walks along the shore and up into the amazing neighborhood homes. Breakfast was amazing. There's a bus that goes right into the city. Very handy with the quiet of the suburbs."
"Yet another great stay with friendly hospitality and generous breakfasts."
"Trish & Keith are wonderful hosts and provide all sorts of practical advice and suggestions in addition to a great B&B at a great location."

"We had a wonderful stay with Trish and Keith who treated us like family."
"If you don't want a sterile hotel environment, you must stay here!. This B&B is full of character and comfort. The hots go out of their way to help - our daughter has severe allergies and Trish cooked her a special breakfast dish. The breakfast is magnificent and presented so beautifully. Very highly recommended."

"We had a great time at Nautical Nook. Keith and Trish are very welcoming and we enjoyed very much sailing with them on their boat. An experiance to repeat."
"Certainly the very best experiance we've had in our B&B stays in NZ. The sailing experiance with Keith was fantastic, especially for two rookies like us. And what a laugh in retrieving my cap with the boathook after it being blown away."

"Kieth & Trish are great hosts. The breakfast was the best; and the sail from Auckland was most spectacular. A very special way to begin a visit to New Zealand."
"I am responding to a card from you regarding our recent stay at a B&B in New Zealand. We stayed 3/26-29 at the Nautical Nook and had a wonderful time. Our hosts were accommodating, greeting us at 7:00 a.m. on our arrival day, taking us for a wonderful sailboat cruise on the bay and making the entire time pleasurable. They were a fount of knowledge regarding Auckland and the North Island area! We'd love to do it again!!"

"Trish is such an amazing hostess, going above and beyond what one would normally expect in a B&B! She gives pure New Zealand charm along with delicious food and even gave me a tour of Auckland and pick up and drop-off to sail on an America's Cup boat! Her knowledge of the area, coupled with her graciousness, make this B&B a sailor girl's dream!"
"I feel I really saw the true, hospitable side of N.Z. You have been an exceptional hostess. True spirit of the KIWIS. Terrific location with easy access to city by bus, and a 'dancing dog' to take for waterfront walks."
"Great KIWI HOSPITALITY. May you have hundreds more travellers to spoil. Comfy beds, 5 star meals and even a twilight cruise to Rangitoto.<br>We are on the last lap of a 3 year adventure and Auckland is a memorable city because of you and you lovable dog Shamus. Thanks for your generosity and spontaniety. Stay fresh and happy."
"Thank you for everything. The breakfast table groaned with food, now eat your heart out you backpackers! Chalet on the Park is the place to stay.Ill never forget cruising on the harbour --way to go. Cheers"
