Company info

Over the years I have seen the sad loss of our built heritage as developers bought properties, smashed them down and built modern ones. I was determined that wasn't going to happen to this house. The only certain way to save them is buy them and not knock them down, ever. In 1994, that's what I did. As funds allowed I upgraded the services and cleaned all the Kauri woodwork that had been painted over from the very beginning. This hard work has resulted in what Lonely Planet described as "a very special place to stay". My other occupation is voice-over for television and other media. I think of myself as "the invisible TV star" bringing words alive and telling stories that help people buy exercise equipment, fishing gear and " but wait there's more" all manner of homewares and household appliances. I do web-videos, messages over the phone and coach people, to help them get the best out of their voices. With my lovely wife Mel, I love to make our little corner of the world a better place. Please come and be part of it.

Property info

There's nothing quite like it. A lovingly restored 1901 townhouse right in the center of New Zealand's biggest city is now an elegant bed and breakfast, haven for traveler and adventurer alike. Large enough to spread out in but small enough to look after your individual needs.

Neighborhood info

Our neighbourhood is where colonial Auckland began, Capt. Hobson, the first Governor had his mansion built just up the road, probably to be close to the Wai-a-riki Spring which still flows in the valley behind our house. The High Court, built in 1868 is just across the road from Braemar and at the bottom of our street is the site of the first Assembly Building where the colony's first Parliament gathered in 1854. Huge trees grow in Old Govt House gardens, planted by dignitaries and visitors to the various Governors or Governor Generals. Now part of the University of Auckland campus it is open for the public to stroll through this oasis of calm right in the centre of this busy city. Nearby we are blessed with long established parks; The Auckland Domain with the War Memorial Museum, Albert Park and the Auckland City Art Gallery and Emily Place Park with its huge Pohutukawa trees on the site of the original St Pauls Church. All of the attractions of New Zealand's largest city are an easy walk away so come and let us introduce you to my hometown,the playground the Maori call "Tamaki Makaurau" which means " the area of Tamaki, desired by many "
