Perfect location for the function we were attending in Auckland. We found it extremely comfortable and peaceful. You shouldn't hesitate to book The Consulate. Thanks for your hospitality David and Averill.

A wonderful luxury b&B. And that term does not really do the house justice, it is more like a boutique hotel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Guest living room spacious and elegant. David and Averill are great hosts with the elusive balance of ensuring you have everything to make you comfortable and giving you plenty of privacy.

We hope to be return guests.

Louise-Thank-you for your quick response in posting a review on Tripadvisor.It is very much appreciated.
Averill and I very much enjoyed you and Eugene staying with us.It's great that your Mum is doing well,and that your sister is also close by to help.
We very much hope to see you over Xmas when you plan to have Xmas in Auckland.There are still a lot of great restaurants and walks along the beach at Stheliers Kohi,& Mission bay that are well worth visiting.
Kind Regards
David & Averill Archer @ "The Consulate Luxury B& B Auckland.

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

Our holiday started in Auckland and we chose to stay at a beautiful place called St Helliers. It is a beautiful suburb and not too far out of Auckland. On arrival to The Consulate we were warmly welcomed and shown to the most beautiful room we have ever stayed in. A king size bed that still gave you plenty of space, a very large bathroom with double shower. David and Averill are the perfect hosts and we enjoyed sitting down with a glass of champagne and cheese on arrival. This B & B has everything you could imagine and we were treated to 4 very special nights. The local restaurants are all exceptional and we would definitely go back. If you want to relax and read in the large sitting rooms, play tennis or swim in the pool you can do it all here. We were treated like very special guests and it was a real privilege to stay at The Consulate. Sincere thanks to David and Averill.
