An interesting property, very clean with everything supplied (as per description). Very well priced for location, however a lack of a 'closed in sitting area' - coffee/tea making facilities are provided in a carport - could be a problem if the weather is cold.

It is a great place just to chill out and relax and yet just a stone's throw away there are cafes, restaurants, takeaways and a supermarket as well as bus stops and the lovely Grey Lynn Park. It is also just a short ride to the city centre.

This is an unusual setup with the bed in one cabin, the shower and toilet in another and the coffee and tea facilities within a carport. That said, it all works perfectly although I do recommend taking an umbrella and torch with you.. The cabins are spotless and quiet and the bed very comfortable. The locality is ideal with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

3 stars reflects the basic accommodation. I'd give 5 stars as value for money.
