Guest Review from Glennis NZ - April 2013
Absolutely loved staying here in this apartment. Everything is provided here and is really comfortable and feels like a home away from home. Felt very comfortable and safe, loads of privacy and use of the pool and spa pool was divine! Appreciated being able to have my whanau/family over for a visit for a BBQ and would very much love to stay again! Very friendly house owners! Would highly recommend this place and way better than staying at a hotel/motel!!
Guest Review from judygardner uk- Dec 6, 2011
I've stayed with Carolynn and alan before, and stayed in the apartment as well as the homestay. It's a great service they provide, very homely without being intrusive at all, and everything is well thought-out, clean, comfortable and welcoming. I'll go again hopefully next time I'm over visiting my young family, because I can retreat to the haven of peace that Carolynn offers when my family get too much for me!
Guest Reference from Karen Sau, New England USA Jan 2012
'I just wanted to touch base with you and thank you again for your hospitality and the use of the lovely apartment. We had a wonderful stay in Murrays Bay and my daughter and Ryder enjoyed their walks to the beach and back...
The beds were warm and comfortable and it was very quiet and peaceful. We mostly enjoyed being able to have our friends and family to visit us and entertain in pleasant surroundings, thank you.
Should we ever need accommodation again, I would hope that we could stay with you in the future and will gladly recommend you to any of our friends who may travel down under.
Caro and Alan are the sort of people that you wished you had met 30 years earlier. They are caring and helpful and humorous and have a wonderful way of making one feel happy every single second. We came from Europe were looking around Auckland to buy a house and Carolynn and Alan were more than helpful in this. I just wouldn't buy one without their input. Our accommodation was just perfect.
If it is possible to be critical in any way I feel that this interesting couple just put too much of themselves for what they charge. The price is too low for the 6 star service they provide.
Don't hesitate. Just stay here. Europe ric Stayed April 2009 and September and October 2011 and January2012
My kids and I stayed here for 5 days and it was the most peaceful and relaxing environment we could have hoped for...the beach is a 2 minute drive and the accomodations were top notch...Perfectly clean and very cozy. Alan and Carolyn were very gracious and thoughtful. Close to Auckland and yet far enough away...great to have your hosts next door, but wonderful privacy, too. I would definitely stay here again and again!

My family and I stayed here for one month and never wanted to leave. The accommodation was second to none and the location is awesome, close to great beaches, restaurants and all other amenities. To top it off Carolynn and Alan are the best hosts anyone could ever wish for and we have surely made good friends for life. We would definitely love to stay here again when we next visit.
