Modern Charm by the Beach

Bobby’s workshop.

Welcome to Bobby’s workshop, a brand new home, oozing old world charm with modern amenities. Inspired by Bobby’s plumbing workshop back in 1973, some of the old machinery and chattels have been re-used in the interior décor of this home beautifully.

Open plan living with a chefs island kitchen and generous dining table to go with. So many little extras have been added to this home – like the Hi-Fi turntable in the lounge with a good selection of vinyl to choose from. An almost secret passage through the amazing Balinese door leads you to the master bedroom with en-suite and flat screen television.

The property is perfectly placed, with easy access to the Central City, University, hospital and Forsyth Barr Stadium only 7-10min drive away, or in the other direction a short drive to St Clair Esplanade with great cafes, restaurants, saltwater pool and world class surf!

Supermarket and bus stops are a 5min walk from the property.

You have private OSP just in front of the home if you have a vehicle.

Absolutely loved this place! So unique, really comfortable to stay for a few nights. Quick walk down to the beach, it was great to have a dedicated parking spot too. Thanks for a great stay!

We were really pleased with the layout and amenities. Excellent for 2 couples sharing. Plenty of room and space to spread out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

We had four very enjoyable days in this very well-equipped modern house. It has a great kitchen and bathrooms, warm comfortable beds, and has been thoughtfully set up for a stress-free relaxing stay. The recycling of some old features with a modern build is really interesting, as are the various art works. It’s in a location handy to everything, and the off-street parking was appreciated.

We loved this. It is warm, comfortable and presented in a delightfully eclectic style. It was SO good to stay in an Air Bnb with a generous supply of good quality crockery and cutlery. We also appreciated the generous number of coat hangers. It was great to have an en suite as well as a separate bathroom and toilet. The double glazing meant there was no street noise ( as well as being snug). Location- wise excellent. Easy walk across a couple of streets to Countdown. Unreservedly recommend this AirBnb.

Warm, clean and inviting accommodation. Great to have a modern open kitchen and new clean fixtures. With a funky and eclectic vibe, we’ll be back
