Our host, Carly, was so helpful and friendly. Even when we checked in on Christmas Eve we didn't feel like strangers; she made us feel like old friends staying at her guest house. She kept in contact with us to make sure we were comfortable. We were welcome to visit with the animals and even showed us around her property to tell us about them. The studio is close enough to town and close enough to the beach. Scenic views of farmland and relaxing atmosphere, the studio was equipped with everything you would need for a longer stay. This experience just helped to reaffirm why we love using Airbnb.

We stayed here for 3 nights after flying in to Auckland at the start of our NZ holiday. It was an absolutely lovely place to unwind and de-stress from the hectic pace of our day to day lives! Thank you for a lovely idyll!

This place was amazing, especially for animal lovers. Goats, sheep, cows, mini horses, chickens and dogs! The cottage was nice with beautiful views and conveniently located to Bethells Beach, endless hiking trails and a train station for access to downtown Auckland. We highly recommend taking a trip to Piha Beach (less than an hour away). Carly was a wonderful host. Highly recommended, Waitakere is a great area.

Coming from Tokyo, it was hard to believe this idyllic spot was part of Auckland. Our four-year-old daughter loved it there. From the porch of the studio or cottage she could see sheep, cows, and goats right in front of her. We liked it so much we extended our stay and really wanted to stay longer. Carly was wonderful: she gives you as much privacy or contact as you want, and our daughter took full advantage of her indulgence. Perfect for relaxing and seeing Auckland at the same time.

This was our second stay at this adorable cottage, and we'd definitely come back! It's a great combination of modern comforts mixed with a bit of rural charm - and the goats across the way are a big perk! Thanks for the hosts for accommodating us somewhat last minute - that really helped us out!

We truly enjoyed our stay in the Kahitkatea Studio. The unit was as expected - beautiful little kitchen with nice wood counters/cabinets and new appliances (even a dishwasher!), simple bedroom with door out to the deck, and a small bathroom/shower (which you access from the covered deck just steps from the front door - not from inside the unit). Tons of light and windows/doors to open. We loved all of the animals on the property - especially the goats right across from the unit! Friendly dogs too (especially the quiet long-haired one!), some friendly cows, sheep, and ponies too. It really felt like a holiday on the farm - very relaxing (even got to eat some fruit from their trees!) The internet went out once or twice while we were there, but Barb took care of it right away, so it was no trouble at all. They even stopped by to check that it was working properly again. I think it may have been storm related - so nothing they could have done to prevent that. Would definitely come back and stay again in the future!

Amazing place. Hard to believe we were that close to city. Loved sitting on the patio enjoying meal and watching the goats. Our 8 month old adored seeing all of the farm animals. This is one of our favorite places we have ever stayed. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. It was a nice bonus having a washer dryer to use.

I like living in a peaceful, healthy environment, growing food, caring for animals and having friends and family in my life, especially the grandchildren. We really enjoy sharing the beautiful place we live, with our guests.
