À propos de ce logement

Self-contained small room for two adults which gets sun from sunrise to late afternoon. Enjoy the birdsong from your room, use the shared decks. Small gas BBQ. Wifi. Insect screens on two windows. Shops (cafés, library, doctors) 3 to 4 min walk away.

Le logement

The treetop room is above our art studio where we operate our craft jewellery business from (the big red door). You will have your own separate entrance (the blue door).
All of this is right next to our home so we are hidden away or available most of the time.

Your room has a private kitchen with general facilities for food preparation and cooking: induction hot plate, basic microwave, mini (toaster) oven, sink, refrigerator.

A smoke alarm is at the top of the stairs.

We design and make jewellery by hand on the studio below the room. This means that during the day we use hand tools such as hammers and mallets and switch on light machinery to grind and polish (but not for extended periods of time).
Plus we have occasional visits by students taking jewellery lessons singly or in small groups. We expect that during the day you will be out walking in the Ranges or visiting tourist venues.
By the way, jewellery tuition is available at an extra cost, from a $70 1-hr silver ring session to a longer gem-setting class.

The bedroom floor measures 3.3m x 2.4m and with the open wardrobe and kitchen is 10.3 square metres. It faces the sunny north and offers views to the east and the north.

The double bed (135cm x 200cm) is very comfortable and has a double electric blanket and reading light. Hair-drier included.

Power points are close-by. The writing desk is close to more power points so there is plenty of scope to charge your pods, pads, cameras and laptops.

There is a radiant heater above the kitchen alcove which offers fast heating for you as soon as you need it. There is an open wardrobe for hanging your clothes and storing suitcases.

Free WiFi internet from your studio room and from the shared outdoor decks. We have a 100Mbps fibre internet connection, and wifi downloads max out at 60Mbps.

The bathroom: shower, heated towel rail, toilet, and a well-lit handbasin.

No smoking inside or outside.

Timezone. Please note we are GMT+12. You might lose a day coming here, or gain a day.

Airport (AKL). We are 24km from Auckland Airport. Taxis such as Green Cabs (free ph ) company, or "Uber" taxis ($NZ49) offer the best rates. Get their apps on your phone.
Shuttle services run to and from the airport and some offer “second passenger free”.

If you want us to pick you up or take you - as long as the times are not too early/late - we ask $60 to collect you FROM the airport and $50 to take you TO the airport.

About us.
We work from home in the workshop below the room and we are available most of the days for help and local knowledge.
Ask us about the Waitakere Ranges nearby: from easy walks to challenging hikes. We are amateur birders and can help you with birding places both local and around New Zealand.

We are a Kiwi couple with some knowledge of Italian, French, German and Maori, and we have traveled extensively around the world and especially around New Zealand so we can advise you on other NZ locations you're interested in.

Brian and Ruth made me very welcome and the room was perfect and had everything needed (including a great little kitchenette and separate private bathroom. Waking up to a view over the tree tops was a bonus too. The cafe a few minutes up the road (Stripe) had great coffee and food for lunch. I'd definitely book this again!

Perfect stay in my first Air BnB! I'm usually a luxury traveller, and I consider myself fussy. Treetops was excellent, and I will return. Everything about it was superb, cosy bed, nice sheets, insect screens, separate entrance, light cooking facilities, fresh eggs, and most of all, gracious hosts. The area is splendid for bush walks and great cafes. Titirangi is a choice location- safe, quiet and classy. Excellent birdlife and bush, yet walking distance to gallery, shop and bus line. Brian and Ruth are generous, kind, unique hosts that welcomed me. Truly a very special experience!!!

Return visit to Brian and Ruth's place which is within 10 mins walking distance of the village. It is almost like a second home. I enjoyed the privacy but also their thoughtfulness.

We are a married couple and we've lived and worked here for well over 30 years. We are very keen on cooking, wine and coffee. Music that we listen to ranges from medieval to the Classical era (Hildegard von Bingen to middle Beethoven). Local interest we have are native birds and bush walking (hiking).

We make silver jewellery by hand in our studio below the guest room. Our home is a 1935 barracks style house and we have done much home renovation ourselves, adding all sorts of decks and a chicken house. We built the studio in 1986 and our daughter lived in the treetop room many years ago.

We recently traveled from this new little country to some old and ancient sites. In April 2012 we went to southern Italy and France, standing for a moment beside Sicilian sassi, Sardinian nuraghi, and French cathar castles. Fabulous.
