We're a bunch of international flat mates (1 girl, 3 guys) all working full-time in Auckland's CBD. Our place is right next to the Vector Arena, close to the City Centre, Britomart, The Strand Station, Auckland Domain, Parnell (French markets every weekend), supermarkets, bus stops and the harbour.
You’ll love our place because of the convenience of its location. Our place is perfect for solo travellers or couples that want to sleep in a private room very close to the heart of Auckland.
You'll have access to your own private room, the lounge, kitchen, garage (for laundry) and a shared bathroom which you'll be sharing with Taka upstairs.
We're Jen (Germany), Aaron (Netherlands), Taka (Japan) and Michael (New Zealand), being travellers ourselves, we love meeting new people and getting to know their story. We will try our best to help you and if our busy schedules allow us, to even do stuff with you ... !
Jen and Aaron have been working holiday makers for more than 2 years and can help starting backpackers get ready for their adventure in New Zealand by helping them setup their IRD number (we've got all the forms), bank accounts and get them a proof of address.
- Our place is in a super convenient location, but because of this there are trains (between 6am-11pm) passing close by. We've got heaps of earplugs for our Airbnb guests which will help dampen the sound if necessary, we don't use them ourselves as you will get used to it quick enough.
- You don't have to worry about washing powder/liquid as we share this with everybody in the house, you're welcome to use it.
- Clean up after yourself
- Be respectful of others
- If you do smoke, use the balcony or go outside.
A Dutchman with an accent you can't place, some say Aussie, some American and some say British. Before I started backpacking more than 2 years ago, I studied to become a software developer, but I figured that spending too much time in front of a computer screen wasn't cool. I quit studying and took up a crappy warehouse job where I started working crazy hours.
After 3 years of saving up money I wanted to do something crazy, so I decided to buy myself a one way ticket to Australia, marry an Aussie girl and stay down under forever. Fast forward two years, I'm together with a German girl, living in New Zealand, earning money writing software. Things never work out as planned!
