We enjoyed three fabulous days during our stay at The Captain's Landing. This bed
and breakfast is located on the beautiful North Shore area of Auckland, called
Devonport, just a short 10 minute ferry ride from downtown, and then a five minute
walk to the B&B.
The Captain's Landing overlooks the water, and so you get a great view of all the
activity, as well as the walkway on the water's edge.
The accommodation is really comfortable and elegant with a well appointed bedroom, a
spare room available to store your luggage, and a separate sitting room overlooking
the deck, and then out to the water. Breakfasts were served upstairs in the main
house diningroom which had an exquisite view of Auckland city and the surrounding
beach areas. The best part however was the lovely breakfasts prepared by the
gracious host, Margaret Ekman. Making use of organic local products where possible,
the breakfast was just exquisitely prepared and served with Margaret providing us
interesting stories and suggestions about Auckland, and how the B&B had evolved.
The Captain's Landing is a higher end B&B which offers excellent value, a great
hostess, and a good location with easy access to downtown. We would glad recommend
this B&B, and next time we are in Auckland, would
definitely stay there again.
