Overview

North Island Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

Welcome aboard Loft 2G!

This renovated apartment (Dec 2014) is perfect if you don't want to stay in a boring hotel with no character: With a little bit of an airline theme (don't worry, it's a real bed, not a plane seat that reclines), lots of space (62 sq m. or 667 sq f.), a king size bed, washer and dryer, free wifi and apple tv to connect your electronics on the TV.

But most important, a quiet place in the middle of Auckland.

And if you are a cook, make this kitchen yours! (you will save on take out meals).

Do you know that many houses in New Zealand are not heated? 2G is a warm place by itself, but a gas heater will keep you warm if you feel chilly.

You will find bars, restaurants, supermarket and cinemas within 10 min walk

If you arrive by plane (you will certainly will), the airport bus will drop you only 1 street away from your new home.

Loft 2G is a unique home in this building: Nowhere you will find a dining and coffee table made out of (brand new) pallets, the bar is in an airline trolley, the bathroom and the living room both have mood lighting.

There is some construction nearby. I have purchased an extra set of windows in the bedroom to protect you from noise disturbance that might occur (work hours shall be restricted to the hours of between 7.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday, and 8.00am to 1.00pm Saturday).

Gay friendly, a New Zealand home with a Canadian inspiration (all this wood) and an airline feel

Check-in is from 4pm. Check-out is at noon.

Cancellation policy is as follow:

- Over 61 days prior to check-in: 75% refund (except VRBO fees)

- Between 60 and 31 days: 50% refund

- 30 days and less: no refund.

I am however flexible if you need to change your dates and the new dates are available: no fees at all, just the price difference (no refunds if the new dates are at a cheaper rate).

Welcome aboard!

About David, I am the owner

David,

Very frequent flyer, I am away from home 4-5 months/year.

My house is yours.

Ex Cirque du Soleil touring member, I now work in the fitness and airline industry.

David, I am the owner purchased this apartment in 2013

Why David, I am the owner chose North Island

It was hard to find a 'New York Loft Style' unit in Auckland: we are new country and don' t have old buildings to renovate.

Loft 2G is in a classified building, ring in the center of Auckland.

My passion for Airlines shows in the unit: your rubbish bin will look like the one in the plane, and a seatbelt sign in the ceiling will remind you it is a non smoking unit (you are welcome to smoke on the balcony).

What makes this apartment unique

Location, style and equipment: You don't really need to bring anything with you...

Guestbook comments from the owner

I arrived at Loft 2G and found everything very clean & welcoming! The apartment is conveniently located in downtown Aucklad where it's easy to walk to many restaurants and stores. David was very accommodating & provided lots of items that helped the apartment to feel like a home away from home during my stay. Highly recommend!!

An amazing find in the heart of Auckland

  • 5 of 5

This was such an amazing find in the heart of Auckland. David was so so sweet, from the welcome note on the chalkboard to the guide with all the cool places to eat as well as the décor which was just awesome! It was literally like being in a first class cabin on an aircraft! Thank you for a fabulous experience - your home is lovely.

The place was great!

  • 5 of 5

The place was great! Both clean and comfortable. There was construction going on (which is clearly mentioned) so there was a bit of noise during the day and the windows had to be mostly covered, but that gave you reason to head out into the city! Overall I was very satisfied. Thanks!

Highly recommend this apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at LOFT 2G!

David Jack was a great host and the communication was excellent. The loft is so close to everything - harbour and ferry terminal, shopping, Sky tower, transport centre, restaurants and other tourist attractions. We visited Devonport and Misson Bay when we stayed there - both are worth a visit.

The apartment was immaculate and it was great to have essentials like bread, milk, tea, coffee and eggs provided when you arrive.

The only downside was we didn't get the benefit of using the balcony due to the nearby construction work (although we knew this was going on before we booked!).

We loved the quirky decor as well, it really is a fun apartment. I would highly recommend this apartment and host and should we return to Auckland would definitely rebook."

David is the gold standard of rental properties

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at David's place for over a month, and we absolutely loved it. We've stayed at loads of rental places, and this was by far the best experience that we've had. David is pretty much the gold standard of rental properties - if all hosts were like him, hotels would be done for overnight! He pays extra close attention to the finer details, such as leaving loaded bus passes, and supplying tasty beverages in the fridge for arrival. He stopped by to clean a few times since we stayed so long, and would always communicate well in advance to schedule a time. My girlfriend had mentioned that she wished there was a standup mirror, and David surprised us with one outside the door! There were some minor inconveniences that came up during our stay, so David treated us to a lovely dinner at The Grove (Auckland's top-rated restaurant). The place itself was great - very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location was great, right in the middle of the City Centre. Couldn't be happier with our stay in David's place.”

Fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in March 2016, and this apartment was perfect. The location is excellent - an easy walk to nearly everything. Note that Auckland is a hilly city - if you take the bus from the airport, you will need to walk uphill a couple of blocks to reach the apartment. The apartment was immaculate and David kindly provides a few breakfast items, which made our first morning really easy. The flight decor is fun!
