Paul & Lynette’s cottage offers designer grade interiors, thoughtful amenities, outstanding views, and convenience to wherever you wish to go around the Auckland area. My family of 4 recently stayed for 2 nights – I now wished I had made plans for a longer stay! I would rebook with them in a heartbeat!

This was the most welcoming cottage/home I have ever stayed in. It was very clean and cozy. The view is amazing and I can’t wait to go back and visit. Do not miss the opportunity to stay here!

This was the best property we stayed at in the two weeks we were travelling in New Zealand. A wonderful two nights. We were welcomed with fresh bread, jam and butter. Such a nice touch.

Wedding weekend guests Sept 2019
Thank you so much, one again!
So impressed all over again with the quality and beautiful presentation of everything – plus the bath, the fireplace, the peace and the bird life. We had a different bedroom and bathroom this time – even more luxurious. Loved the double shower and great artwork in that bedroom and bathroom. We’ll be back!

Honeymoon couple – Nov 2018

Absolutely the best place we stayed on a 6 week holiday!  Gorgeous decorating; super comfortable beds; gardens were delightful!

2 couples from the USA – Nov 2018


It would be easy to run out of superlatives describing our stay at Paul and Lynette’s place. The view is amazing with stunning sunrises and sunsets. The garden is filled with flowers and nature.

The villa itself is immaculate, with views from every room, including the bathroom. The furnishings are extremely tasteful and the crockery and utensils are top quality. It was extremely peaceful and possible to while away an afternoon just relaxing in the house or outside. The seclusion does make for a romantic environment. Communication was clear and prompt and Paul and Lynette were also generous in the provisions supplied. An absolute highlight which will be long remembered. Thank You Paul and Lynette! Couple from South Africa Jan 2017

This is the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. This includes five star hotels. The spacious layout exudes French charm and style. The gorgeous bath is such a lovely way to wind away the day, with spectacular views over the valley, water and city lights.

The gardens were gorgeous and everything was fitted out with outstanding eye for detail. My husband, daughter and I cannot recommend this place highly enough.  Family group from Perth April 2017

We had a fantastic 2 nights in the Villa. This is a beautiful home and the views from all rooms are amazing! Communication was great, very speedy and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone! Couple from Melbourne April 2017

My husband and I planned a two week honeymoon in New Zealand, and decided to spend the last three nights of our vacation at the villa. It was EXACTLY what we needed after backpacking, camping, rafting.

The house is beautiful, the neighborhood’s quiet and the views throughout the entire house are amazing. Perhaps more impressive than the house itself, Paul & Lynette stocked the house fridge with fresh milk, eggs, butter, jam and bacon, in addition to cereal and ciabatta bread. It was absolutely appreciated (and mind blowing)! Communication was always quick and responsive, check in was easy!  Honeymoon couple from California March 2017.

This is the best residence I’ve ever booked from [name of internet booking site]. Strongly recommended to good taste couples who love romantic, families with children who like quiet.

The surrounding-very peaceful and clean, away from the hustle and bustle, which has an invincible landscape, we can overlook the city and lake, see the sunrise and sunset, it also has a charming night view. We really love the fragrance from the garden when we open the door and window every morning. The room indoors-very clean and tidy, the living room, 2 bedrooms, even the bathroom, all rooms have great lighting, the storage space is enough for a family with children. The decoration is very stylish, convenient and comfortable, awesome carpet and floor, my daughter likes running barefoot room to room.  The villa has everything you need in your daily life, including washer, dryer and iron. The Linen and bathroom supplies-new, clean, tidy, good quality and enough quantity. We had good sleep every night. Couple with child from China. February 2017

This property was exceptional, from the easy arrival to the comfy bath robes, everything was in such a good condition and the home was so beautiful. With beautiful views and amazing utilities, we felt so happy with our choice. It was the best place for our much needed break from the busy city life. It had the beauty of a secluded private area but it was also close to shops, cinemas, restaurants and local walks. Well worth it’s price.  Couple from Auckland – Feb 2017

The moment we entered the house and saw the view, we cancelled whatever was originally planned for that afternoon. The stay over the next 3 days was so comfortable. I could tell that the landlord aimed at high standards as there was no cheap stuff prepared for the guests. Really a perfect experience!  Couple with two children from Singapore March 2017

The accommodation was fabulous. In particular the distressed-look décor was beautiful, and all the furniture, fittings and facilities were of a high-standard and felt very luxurious. Everything was spotless and the villa felt comfortable and cozy. It is so close to Auckland yet you feel like you have really escaped the city! The floor to ceiling windows with district views were amazing!!! Couple with two children from Australia March 2017.
