Our home is a 1905 square front villa that we have renovated (some work to complete but is mostly done), just a few minutes walk from Devonport Village. It is fully insulated, and is warm and cosy. It has a spacious light-filled living area in a modern extension, two bathrooms, two toilets in addition to its 4-5 bedrooms and study.
The bedroom is a typical villa bedroom with high ceilings and sash window with a view to Mt Victoria.
Devonport is a charming sea-side village. It has everything you could need: supermarket, cafes, restaurants, library, shops, gym, art galleries etc. There are two beautiful maunga/mountains in Devonport - Takarunga, Mt Victoria and Maungauika, North Head. Both are beautiful places to walk and explore, and take in the view of the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf.
Our family is Mum, Dad, and nine-year-old son and 22 year old daughter with us, and a homestay guest. Our older son is away at University returning home in some holidays. One of us works often from home; our internet is good.
Meals can be included for an extra fee either breakfast (provisions to help yourself) and/or dinner (prepared by the family with help preparing/clearing welcomed) - by arrangement.
