Warm, friendly and relaxing atmosphere and very pleasant, clean rooms made this an enjoyable stay. The host was incredibly forthcoming, even driving us to the train. Thank you for making us feel right at home!

The staff was very helpful especially to people who were unfamiliar with the area. Gave lots of suggestions of things to do that didn't involve being a typical tourist. Great local spots and hidden gems (Morten Islands and Mount Cootha). The rooms were very clean and the essentials were provided such as linens, dishes, and kitchen. However, this great house is located along a busy street with many cars driving passed at all hours. It causes some disturbance but doesn't take away from the great atmosphere.
