Karen's place is the perfect getaway to escape the the city madness. It was a surpisingly quick trip from Auckland CBD, even in rush hour, it is super easy to find.
Karen met us upon arrival and showed us through, it is just like in the photos. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need and some unexpected but very welcome extras! There is no cooker/hob but the BBQ is new, clean and undercover so works perfectly.
Lounge dining is combined plenty of space. There is a large range of books and some games and puzzles for those days when you just want to stay inside.
Bedroom again has plenty of space and is very sunny. It has a large ranchslider for plenty of fresh air. Tje bed is very comfy and high quality linen was provided.
Bathroom is clean with a good shower Karen provided nice towels and all the amenities required.
The accommodation is quite rural and is very peaceful. There are animals about however we only saw a couple of chickens, the bigger animals are well housed in their own paddocks. It has its own drive coming off the main driveway heaps of parking and room for a boat. It is only a few minutes from the beach and Cafe. Parakai hot pools are an easy drive away and same with Helensville if you needed some supplies.
Thanks again Karen for hosting us. Definitely stay again when we are heading your way.
