It was indeed a pleasure to be the guests of david & trudy in arguably one of the best airbnb house i have ever been to. Thanks for making us feel completely at ease. Would love to come back again some day. :)

Nice place to stay with amazing views and plenty of space. Whole place is well equipped, especially kitchen. David and Trudy (and Levi, of course) were very nice and helpful. We really enjoyed our time there!

We had a lovely two nights at the beautiful Scenic Ridge and would definitely recommend anyone intending to explore the Waitakere Ranges or the Kumeu Wine Region to spend 2 - 3 days here! Firstly, the photographs and descriptions do not do justice to how thoughtfully furnished and well-equipped the place was. The kitchen was equipped with lots of utensils and crockery we needed to cook ourselves a feast (not that we were chefs by any length), the room and bed was very clean and comfortable and the toilet was of a 5-star hotel standard! Secondly, the views from the verandah are stunning at anytime in the day with rolling hills of green pastures of farmland framed by the native bush. We were blessed with really good weather on both nights so we could witness the beautiful sunsets as we prepared dinner. Thirdly, the location is ideal to explore the area. The start point for the trek to the Mokoroa Falls is just a short 3 mins drive away. The Muriwai Beach and Gannet Colony is a 20 mins drive away. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to explore Bethalls Beach. It is a slightly longer drive of 30 - 40 mins if you would want to explore Piha or Karekare beach but I reckon it is worth the comfort of David & Trudy's place!

BULA! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We enjoyed our stay and meeting you both- not forgetting Levi and his clever trick! Inspiring Quote: "I can't change the direction of the wind but I can adjust my sails to reach my Destination". Take care and Keep smiling!

We are a fun loving couple who enjoy entertaining, especially at our home as we have fantastic views and it's great having a BBQ with friends on our deck overlooking Auckland city. We are fortunate to be able to watch a sunrise most days and some stunning sunsets for half of the year.
We live with our furry friend Levi, a friendly 7 year old staffy/border collie cross.
We are members at local golf clubs, Waitakere and Huapai, and enjoy going away on golfing trips around NZ with friends.
Watching the rugby at our house is just a given!
Avid travellers although Fiji is our second home as we have spent alot of holidays at a timeshare that we belong to.
LOVE good food and good wine.
We look forward to hosting you at SCENIC RIDGE!
