Welcome aboard Loft 2G!

*** Special Offer: book 3 nights between May 1st and Sept 30th and received the 4th for free. Offer valid on new bookings only. Do not use the "Instant booking" option: send a request and I will adjust the price. Not valid on booking and cleaning fees. ***

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!!

Great location and value for your money

  • 5 of 5

This loft is in the perfect location in downtown Auckland. Everything is a very short walk, bus ride or cheap UBER away. The loft is likely the most generous with regards to a welcome package and practical things in the event you decide to stay in to eat or watch TV. I was particularly impressed by all of the workout equipment - that came in handy a couple of times. A couple of tips - have coffee at the Allpress cafe for amazing coffee and pastries. Jervois was a fantastic fine dining experience and for a great after dinner bar, you must go to the "Caretaker" - we went there every night once we discovered it! David is a great host and always responds in a very timely fashion to any questions you might have!

Nice apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 13 night stay in this modern, well stocked apartment. It is just a few blocks off the harbor in the heart of everything. We arrived by cruise ship, stored our luggage at the ferry terminal area and hopped on the harbor cruise waiting for the apt to be ready. Easy to take roller bags on the sidewalk or worse case a cab to the apt. Bus stops on Albert St are currently impacted by road construction but close by. If you are staying in the area then no need for a car. Excellent bus, train and ferry connections in walking distance. Lots of places to go just by walking. We took the Skybus ($18) to the airport but you can take the train and connecting bus for half that price.

The owner was great and easy to work with throughout the process. Strong WIFI, variety of tv channels and always great to have laundry facilities. We ate in mostly and everything you could want to prepare meals was in the cabinets. No need to bring soaps, shampoos, and lotions as all were provided. SPARK mobile provider has a $49NZD Travel Sim that includes data, local calls plus 200 min international calls/texts. Great for us to talk to family and friends in USA plus arrangements for trips in NZ. Supermarkets close by with lots of cafes, Pizza Hut and fast food too. If not as mobile on steeper hills the walk back from markets could be challenging as it was for my husband but I was ok. The elevator was interesting and worked great.

Don't miss the Auckland War Memorial, Auckland National Art Gallery, Maritime Museum and Harbor Cruise. You get a ferry ticket to Devonport with cruise. Yes, there is construction that starts at 7 am outside the unit but they were not always loud as it is a large construction site. We could live/work with it as we were in and out of the apt throughout the day.

We travel full time and would say this apt and the owner are among the top 5 we have stayed at. We wouldn't hesitate to book again if in the area.

Great space and location

  • 5 of 5

Uniquely appointed. Fun and funky. Very well equipped. Everything available for breakfast which was unexpected. The ability to do our morning workouts was also a bonus. Great location. Close to everything we needed. Gave us lots of good tips about where to eat and what to do.

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is as described. Clean, comfortable, well appointed. David did inform us about the construction outside the balcony but it was not a problem. David was good to work with. He responded to all of our e-mails in a timely manner and took care of everything that we needed in a timely manner as well. Would stay there again if ever in Auckland. Guy
