Homestay Founder

Ms.Sue (Auntie Sue)

Auntie Sue has 2 houses. Therefore, she decided to transform one of them into a Homestay. She does not stay in the Homestay as she understands the stress the guests will feel if the she is staying together in the same house. There are 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 2 toilets in this single-storey house. It is just a 2- minute walk to the bus stop Buses go to and fro into the city at 30 minutes intervals.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all my “Kids” and hope you enjoy your stay in New Zealand. I have not increased my room rates for a long time as I am not money minded. My wish is to provide all my guests with reasonable room rates as I look upon them as my “kids” as I am already 63 years old. Finally, please let me know if I can be of any help to make your stay at Sue Homestay Backpacker Hostel better. I will try my best as long as it is within my capability. This is my promise to all my guests.
