“Comfortable and conveniently located”
Reviewed February 23, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

I was very happy with this accommodation.

It's conveniently situated at the quiet, residential end of a road leading down to Devonport’s main shopping centre and ferry terminal. The little cottage is set back from the road with a small, shady courtyard. It’s clean, well-equipped and comfortable and has a modern shower room with a drying rack. Though there’s no washing machine, a launderette is situated 5 minutes’ walk away, as is a supermarket with ATMs etc.

My hosts made me very welcome on my arrival and were helpful and thoughtful throughout my stay. I wouldn’t hesitate to book this cottage again.

“A learning and therapeutic experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed in David and Gillian's apartment for the last 10 days of my 8 month student gap year in New Zealand. I found the atmosphere relaxing and a really great end to my New Zealand experience. David and Gillian were kind and helpful, offering liberal advice on healthy eating and looking after the whole person. I hadn't been particularly well and I found my stay gave me the chance to recover and feel ready for the long-haul flight home. I was also given the opportunity to visit the market, the folk club and attend several yoga classes. My hosts prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner for me from freshly prepared vegetables from their own garden. All of this was much more than I had expected and I am very grateful for all the extras given to me.
The property was spacious warm and quiet, despite being in the city centre. It was close to all amenities and shops and the harbour.
David and Gillian were cool people and I am really glad to have had the opportunity to stay with them. (Jamie, 18 years old)

“A local trip worth having”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We enjoy Devonport for day trips and decided to book this holiday apartment for the school holidays to experience Devonport as a local overnight getaway. It's so easy to settle into the surroundings of this lovely village by waking up to birdsong from the studio garden and freshly baked bread from the nearby bakeries. The studio apartment is hosted by a pleasant unassuming couple who radiate love of life and all things living. They have provided all the comforts of home and a touch more. Thank you Gillian and David.

“So comfortable!”
Reviewed January 15, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Studio was so comfortable for my family of 3--beds were both comfortably firm, with nice sheets. Everything was clean, and we took advantage of the small fridge and microwave to have some meals there. Supermarket right around the corner made that particularly easy. Location is great for access to restaurants and shops in downtown Devonport, as well as the ferry to central Auckland. Fast internet with easy connection. Gillian was incredibly accommodating, greeting us when we arrived around 9 a.m. to let us in to the apartment.

Only a 10 minute ferry ride from Auckland and short walk. Studio clean, well equipped. Lovely warm, helpful owners. I would have liked to have stayed longer and felt very secure on my own. I hope to return and will recommend to family and friends.Very restful and as I didn't feel all that well it was a lovely recuperative spot. Terrific bathroom and overall the studio very well equipped.Love the village of Devonport. Well priced.

“Everything you need!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had a great stay at Devonport B&B, the apartment came with everything you needed and more! It was located right near all the shops and beach but set back so it was nice and quiet. A 2 minute walk to the ferry terminal to Auckland, Will definitely stay again when we are up near Auckland and recommend it to everyone! Gillian and David were very friendly and helpful. Thanks!
