This was the residence of the US Consul in Auckland. David and Averill owned it and when the Yanks moved out they moved in. The bedrooms are huge with a view over the grass tennis court but not the swimming pool.The bathrooms is even bigger with a heated floor (essential in Auckland) and you have your own living room downstairs. Breakfast is served in a formal dining room and make sure you order one of David's bagels.
The house is athe bottom of a steep drive so well away from the noise. St Helliers is like the Beverly Hills of Auckland but with a beautiful bay and beaches.
If you are commuting during peak hour to Auckland then you would be better staying in the city but other than that the consulate is only about 15 minutes from the city and about 30 form the airport
