I was recently in New Zealand and at the recommendation of a cousin who lives in Auckland I made a booking at the nautical Nook. We were there for 3 nights and I would describe the time we spent there as very comfortable and as close to homelike as I have ever had in my experience with B and B's.... More

Thank you Trich and Keith for making our first visit to New Zealand amazing. Lots of helpful advice and within easy walking distance of Auckland city centre. Frequent bus service if you don't fancy walking. Mission Bay close at hand too. Breakfasts were amazing and huge. We loved the penguin theme in the bedroom. Would love to visit again.

Thankyou Trish and Keith for such a lovely experience. We chose to stay with you on our last business trip to Auckland. The location was perfect, situated in the Orakei basin, just minutes to the restaurants of Mission Bay and the lovely bay almost at the doorstep. They made us feel quite at home with the great breakfast and inviting... More

A great B&B which is really well located. Hosts Trish & Keith are friendly and welcoming and keen to share their knowledge and suggestions about the area. Trish makes awesome cakes and breakfast is a feast. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Mission Bay is just a short walk away and has a good range of cafés, bars and restaurants... More

Trish and Keith made us feel right at home! Keith took our family out for a sail on his sailing yacht on Auckland Harbor, and we had lots of fun! The sunset would have been perfect as we came back into dock, but a cloud got in the way. =) Breakfast by Trish is not to be skipped! The food... More

We are a German couple who have been travelling for about 5 months around the world. Before we came from Australia Trish had already given us some useful information via email about how to get from the airport to their B&B. We stayed in the Nautical Nook for three days and it was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere in the... More

Our family stayed two nights at the Nautical Nook. When you get a hostess who has been to over 70 countries you know there is a great deal of information that is useful coming your way. Trish was really fantastic giving us a big variety of options about what we could do since we had really left our Auckland part... More

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
