Firstly I should say that if we had stayed here in summer I would probably have given it 5 stars but as it was late autumn we were a bit limited on two points. 1) it was decidedly chilly in the bedrooms, as there was no heating in the hallway or bedrooms, and the bathroom too, despite a small fan heater; 2) the kitchen worktop area is very small and you have to keep moving everything before you can do a task. Eg there is no drainer on the sink so by the time you've stacked the dirty pots there's nowhere to put the clean ones as you wash them. There is a lot of equipment and crockery to choose from but it's a bit of a challenge to wash it if you use it. Also there's no extractor so it gets a bit foggy if you fry anything. In summer we would have barbecued so it wouldn't be a big issue but the food prep and washing-up space might still be. If you are completely relaxing and intend to eat out then again no problem but we are traveling long-term so prefer to cook at home. So that said the place is beautiful, very comfortable and spacious, the views are stunning, the hosts very nice and this a lovely place to stay.

Response from David & Trudy:
Thank you for your comments about our accommodation being a beautiful, very comfortable and spacious space with stunning views and a lovely place to stay. Unfortunately we had a cold snap in Auckland for the 2 days you stayed with us. Winter duvets and extra blankets on beds now with heather in the hallway, apologies as we probably should have done this one week earlier. Unfortunately our kitchenette is modest in size although it is accurately depicted with online photos. Glad you enjoyed your stay and we do hope you enjoy the rest of your travels before you head back to Norway.

The views of the sea from the back of the house and views of all of Auckland from the front cannot be beat. The bathroom is really nice for hot showers but keep in mind, most of New Zealand collects rain water so water conservation is important. David and Trudy have wine/orange juice/beer/milk in the fridge to get you started plus an array of crackers/coffees/teas/hot chocolates/cereals and fresh fruit on the counter when you arrive. Recommend trying feijoa at the local fruit stands. Plenty of pillows & bedding. A variety of travel books and magazines to assist in developing your daily plans. We wish we could have spent more time visiting with David and Trudy but with all of us in the Worlds Masters Games it didn't happen. Thanks so much David & Trudy!

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!
