Stayed here for two weeks while on a practical work placement. Host was very friendly, helpful and informative about booking, the area and public transport available. Room and facilities were comfortable, clean, had everything I needed. Within easy walking distance of train station and shops. Cats were very sweet.

Was a pleasure to host you here. Please do recommend me to any colleagues needing accommodation in the local area, always happy to host Vet students. Cats are friendly with all (even undercover Vets).

Great spot! Stayed in a room with a double bed next to the bathroom. Fantastic community of folks staying there and Karen is fun to chat with. It really does feel like you've stepped into someone's home and company for the time you stay. Several times, Karen made enough dinner for other people to eat and even when she was on the go, I was able to sit and talk with her about suggestions of all that the area had to offer. Room was great with a view of Auckland. Having unlimited muessli was an added bonus and being able to cook and use kitchen things was really nice. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to experience the North Island without the chaos of Auckland. The train was in walking distance, I discovered a small gym right down the road, organic food was at my fingertips, and Karen revealed Earth Seed Organic Cafe to me which had a mocha to die for.

Glad you enjoyed your stay here, also the nearby Earth Seed cafe which is still my favourite "chillout/wind down" zone in the local area.

The house and bedrooms were nice and the host Karen was really friendly and helpful. I recommend it! We will be back ;-) The house is well situated. The homemade muesli was delicious, Karen just send me the recipe.

Very warm ambience you get to have the real feeling of a home, nice detail those very friendly cats. Love the superb home made muesli for breakfast, exactly what you need before a good ride along the scenic road through the Waitakere ranges. Totally recommendable.

Glad you enjoyed your overnight stay here at Kiwi Heritage Home Stay. Do visit again sometime so you can further explore the great cycling routes around the Waitakere and Kumeu region. It's easy to clock up over 100km of lovely scenic countryside in the local region (I have done this in my fitter days...).

Stayed in May 2013 for a very enjoyable 2 weeks. Room was basic but adequate. TV, Heater supplied. Very friendly and homely atmosphere. Good kitchen and shower facilities. Great muesli and coffee. Train, bus stops and shops only 10 minutes walk away. Would stay again!

Karen is a friendly and considerate host. Our one night stay before doing the Hillary Trail was pleasant, comfortable and excellent value for money. As rural folk we found the road a bit noisy but urban types would probably not notice and anywhere on that road would be the same.

Karen provided hearty food to make your own breakfast, lovely homemade muesli !!! Karen also found reading material specific to our tramp for us to read over breakfast.
