We stayed three nights after our long trip from the U.S. This was a wonderful place to settle in to traveling and relaxing. Trish cooks the best breakfasts anywhere, ordered from her menu. She accommodated my food allergies with no problem. We had kitchen access and cooked on the porch grill one night, watched local TV, learned the easy bus... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Nautical Nook and enjoyed our stay. Trish and Keith were great hosts and Trish went out of her way to show us around parts of Auckland. Keith treated us to a sail in Auckland Bay and the guys picked up some tips on what not to do!! Breakfast was excellent with a great selection... More

This was our first stop on arriving in Auckland. Keith and Trish made us feel very welcome on our arrival, offering us refreshments which we had sitting on their lovely veranda overlooking the park and sea. Breakfast was just wonderful with its little quirky touches and beautifully cooked and presented. The accommodation was very comfortable and homely and Trish did... More

Looking for last minute accommodation on the night of the Bruce Springsteen concert and not a single room in the city for less than $900! I e-mailed several B&B's and Keith was quick to get back to me to say they were booked up but I could sleep on their boat in the marina! So perfect and a very generous... More

We stayed with Keith & Trish for 3 days following a cruise to Auckland from Sydney. Our hosts were wonderful, anticipating our every need; the other guests were delightful. The facility was well equipped, and we felt 'at home' the entire time. All in all, a great stay! Their proximity to the central business district as well as their residential... More

Spent two nights here in January 2014. Only met Keith as Trish was away, but we were very pleased with Nautical Nook. It is definately a great place to spend some time while in Auckland. The breakfasts were wonderful (a menu selection even!), the room was great and the sailing was a real bonus. Hosts will go out of their... More

Within 4 hours of landing at the airport from the UK, we were out for a complimentary sail around Auckland Harbour with Keith and Trish on their yacht - fabulous! We were made to feel very welcome and given plenty of useful advice about where to go and what to do. Nautical Nook is in a great location, overlooking the... More

My wife and I spent three nights in Trish and Kieth's home. We felt like we were part of their family. My wife had a serious rash on her legs. Trish was very sympathetic and gave us a soothing cream. She could have just told us to go to the pharmacy but she was really concerned. The room was comfortable... More

We spent one night in this B&B and were disappointed to say the least. We arrived in the middle of a meeting of a travel group and were invited to join in. We had just travelled from the airport and although we were to polite to decline found ourselves in amongst a group of people that we neither knew or... More
