"We wholeheartedly recommend this lovely homestay in the quiet suburb of Ngaio. Jennifer is a charming host and is so helpful with local knowledge. The accommodation she offers is very comfortable and clean. The rooms and apartments are kept very warm - with the sun and plenty of heating. The breakfast is plentiful and there is a wide choice available to suit all tastes! My rating is 7 out of 10. The facilities are not new, but there is great character and charm in this art deco home."
"We spent 2 nights with Jennifer in a comfortable independent appartment which was not new, but totally fonctional. Jennifer was very welcoming and helpful with local information. We would very much recommend staying here - especially for longer stays - it has a fonctionnel little kitchn and the train to town is only 10 min. away (all steps!) and takes only 15 min to arrive down town. We wish Jennifer all the very best, Mireille and Gregory"
