We live in a classic Kiwi villa which is just a 2 minute walk from Kingsland's fantastic cafes, restaurant's, bars and shops. A 15 minute walk from the nearest supermarket and also a 15 to 20 minute walk from St Lukes Westfield shopping centre.
Our house has been modernised on the inside and has big spacious rooms with high ceilings and wooden floors. We are situated 4 km's from Auckland City Centre. The nearest bus stop is a 2 minute walk away and the Kingsland train station is also a 2 minute walk. So public transport is very convenient. We are 1 stage by bus or train into the city. If you like walking, it will take you around 35-40 minutes get into the city, University of Auckland, and AUT (Auckland University of Technology). Eden Park Stadium is 10 minutes walk away if you're into your rugby & cricket.
We have one room to rent in our light and spacious house which has a small garden, and one large bathroom which is shared by the household.
- The room has a comfortable double bed, furnished with drawers, a desk, and a rack to hang clothes on. This room looks out onto the garden and is quiet.
We are a family of 2, myself (the mother, I work for a writer's organisation near Auckland university) and my son who works for Auckland libraries. We are both keen readers and collectors of books and graphic novels. When I am not working I enjoy walking and swimming at Auckland's beautiful beaches. We have shared our home with different nationalities over the years for a variety of timeframes from 8 weeks to 1 year (China, Japan, Korea, Russia).
The electric train station and bus stop is a 1 minute walk and we are and only 1 stage into the city. If you like walking, it will take you maximum 45 minutes to the bottom of the city, 30 minutes to University of Auckland in Symonds Street.
