Welcome to Soft Landings: Your accommodation on the North Shore in Auckland.
We are situated in the lovely suburb of Torbay, on Auckland's North Shore. We, Gerhard and Linette, pride ourselves on the fact that our B&B is not your run of the mill homestay but truly a total support system where guests become friends and are treated like family. Most of our guests are starting a new life in New Zealand and this can be a very emotional time. We understand that many new arrivals need a friendly shoulder to lean on or someone to talk to. We know what you are going through and are there for you having gone through the experience ourselves.
During the more than 13 years we have been running our Bed and Breakfast, we have literally helped more than a thousand families immigrate successfully to New Zealand, world renowned for its relaxed country lifestyle and adventure sports. Our B&B is handily situated on the bus route and close to schools. We have 4 house PCs for unlimited use by our clients and we have a fast Wi-Fi to log onto at no extra cost if you want to bring a laptop. We have a limited number of rooms, but all have Internet Jack points (or are covered by wireless Internet), TV and a small fridge. We also have most of the modern appliances and cooking facilities for your comfort and convenience and our accommodation can be regarded as self-contained.
Our rates are very competitive and we have a number of options to choose from. Our goal is to ensure you get off to a solid start in New Zealand and remember we are here to help you in any way we can.
Introducing your hosts Linette and Gerhard.
On arrival in New Zealand we bought a large old house on Auckland's beautiful North Shore and had alterations made to make it suitable as a homestay and Bed and Breakfast. Linette and I had our first guest the same day the builders finished in January 1998, and must have had in excess of 2 thousand families and single people staying with us over the past 10 years. Most of our Guests are immigrating to new Zealand and with our local knowledge of New Zealand we can help you make your relocation experience as easy as possible...read more
