Joy and Howard offer a really personal experience, which, for outsiders like us, from the UK, was just wonderful. Joy's complimentary tour of Devonport and Mt. Victoria was so interesting and we enjoyed sharing the excitement of the America's Cup sailing with Howard. Such an interesting couple to chat to. The room and particularly the bathroom were luxurious and offered lots of little extras, like cheese and crackers, a bottle of wine, toiletries and robes. Joy and Howard's suggestions for trips were spot on and we really enjoyed Auckland Art Gallery and the museum and Maori cultural experience. The house is in such an ideal spot - with a perfect view of the central Auckland skyline - for anyone worried that Devonport is too far away from 'downtown' - it's not - it's such a short trip on the ferry - you can probably get to things in central Auckland quicker from Devonport than from other parts of the city. We loved Devonport itself - lovely restaurants, bars and a perfect little chocolate shop that's well worth a visit. As for the breakfast, which was served at a little table in our room, WOW!! We chose the cooked breakfast on day one - and then couldn't bear to try anything else as it was just so superbly cooked. The fruit platter each day was also wonderful and we really appreciated having different fruits to try. I can't think of any other accommodation I have ever stayed in where the breakfast was better than this. So 10 out of 10 for the whole experience!
