This B&B is a little outside of central Auckland, but the hosts will point you in the right direction to catch the bus to town. It's easy and the buses are quite frequent, so it's worth it to enjoy the peaceful location with ocean views. Actually, it's not out of the question to walk downtown; we did, taking in the views and meandering our way through neighborhoods into the CBD. For breakfast you get to choose a cooked specialty - what a treat! Trish and Keith are very welcoming and eager to share their knowledge of the area and offer suggestions for your day. I would definitely stay here again if i'm ever lucky enough to go back to NZ.
