Welcome to The Studio, our self-contained studio in the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges.
Perfect for couples, friends or solo travellers coming to Auckland for business, holidays, weddings, concerts, sports games and events.
Just minutes from the historic Swanson Railway Station, we are perfectly located to enjoy all that the west and north of Auckland has to offer, including stunning west coast beaches, wineries, forest and bush. The train is close by for access to wider Auckland, sports matches and concerts.
The Studio is separate to the main house, has it’s own entrance, and off-street parking at the door. Self check-in is available with lock box between midday and 11pm. The layout is open plan.
Sleep well in a super-king sized bed with quality linens and electric blanket - or the room can be made up as twin-share configuration (2 long single beds) if you prefer. The adjacent bathroom has plenty of light and space and a generously sized shower.
Everything you need for a continental breakfast is provided. The kitchen has microwave, bench-top oven and portable induction cooktop, and all the crockery and utensils you need for making breakfast and cooking simple meals. A range of teas and plunger coffee are available.
Enjoy a drink or meal on the shared deck, taking in elevated views of the city and harbour. Netflix, free WIFI and a selection of books and magazines on hand for relaxing.
We are happy to pick up/drop off to the train station or other local places by prior arrangement.
As your hosts we are available in the main house, or by phone. The main house is our family home - we have two children aged 11 and 13, pet cats, a sheep and some chickens.
We respect your privacy. Please note that the walkway beside The Studio and the deck with view is shared with the main house as access to the main driveway.

Jimmy & Rahma ★★★★★
This is a really lovely space to stay. It has been very thoughtfully kitted out, with some really considerate touches. The welcome pack and breakfast selection were just what we needed. And the bed is awesomely comfortable. Thanks!

Lesley's place is a haven from the busyness of Auckland. It is spacious, stylish and spotlessly clean. The bed is so comfortable and Lesley provided little extras that made our stay that much more special.
This is such a lovely and stylish space that is well set up and absolutely spotless! Perfect for exploring the West and would be a great place to stay for anyone visiting Auckland with their own transport. Beautiful setting, quiet, relaxing. Host is 100%.
