Easy walking distance to Mairangi Bay beach and lots of good walks beyond. Pleasant, but unobtrusive neighbours. Just a thoroughly good and memorable exchange experience all up.
Craig & Colleen have a super house right in the heart of Mairangi Bay. Spacious, modern and comfortable its an easy house to live in. Just minutes walk to the village and beach. Buses run frequently along the coast making the whole area easily accessible. We joined in the local walking groups and the tennis club where we received a warm welcome. The house is conveniently situated for easy access to the motorway so we made a few easy trips North to explore some wonderful beaches and get into the New Zealand countryside. We had a wonderful experience of the easy living Kiwi lifestyle, sampled much of the incredible variety of food available from the unique Kiwi cafes to the abundance of Asian cuisine. We would go back for more ! Jeff & Vicky
nous sommes trés heureux de vous avoir rencontré ..merci pour votre aide...see you soon!!
Our family had a wonderful stay in Craig’s and Colleen’s beautiful and spotlessly clean home. The location was perfect for day excursions to beaches, parks, tramping trails, and quaint villages. Craig was great to communicate with, and all arrangements were clearly laid out before the exchange. Thank you for your hospitality, Craig and Colleen!
I was fortunate to meet Craig and Coleen at the airport for the beginning of a wonderful exchange. They are the most accommodating hosts and took wonderful care of my home while away. The exchange was a great success. Thanks!
This home in Mairangi Bay, which is more like a village than a suburb of Auckland, is comfortable and modern. Craig and Colleen made every effort to ensure that we felt at home, including introductions to friendly neighbours, and took good care of our home in Calgary, Canada. We met and spent some time with Craig & Colleen and are happy to recommend them as helpful and reliable exchange partners.
Craig and Colleen are lovely people and their home and home town fabulous. We were lucky enough to met Craig and Colleen before the swap (after lots of emails) but everything we needed to know was waiting for us when we got to the house. The house itself was brilliant - light, bright, fully kitted out and a delight to live in. Auckland is home for me but I had never been to Mairangi Bay - but I am a convert! Lovely village (oh the cafe and sushi shop!), right on the beach, all the shops you need, playground for children and very close to motorway links. All in all we loved it. And thank you very much Craig and Colleen.
