We had selected Nautical Nook from the internet because of its location. We were not disappointed when we arrived and stayed for two nights before driving to the Bay of Islands for three nights and back to stay for one night before we departed New Zealand. Keith and Trish were excellent hosts, and they provided much helpful advice about getting about Auckland and its environs. On our last evening in Auckland we were taken for a sail in "Brass Tacks" on Auckland harbour in sailing conditions that could only be described as excellent - 7 knots with only the head-sail. We now have a better appreciation of Auckland harbour, and have seen all the marks. Our room with en-suite at Nautical Nook was spacious quiet and clean. The breakfasts were sumptuous.
