Maison du Bois is a beautifully decorated home in a very nice area of Auckland. We immediately felt comfortable upon arrival. Sheridan and Geoff are the perfect hosts! They made us feel at home right away. Our first night we enjoyed some wine and nibbles along with great conversation and each and everyday after that was delightful! We were two...

Sharon, thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was an absolute pleasure to have the four of you stay with us and we enjoyed every moment - great conversation and plenty of laughs! Hopefully we can catch up again, maybe this time in Canada although I do believe there are some more places for you to see in...

We stayed 3 nights in Maison du Bois and it was perfect: great location (8min by train to the centre of Auckland), nice neighbourhood and fantastic hosts. Geoff & Sheridan welcomed us warmly and the accomodation is great: comfortable bed, private bathroom and a super delicious breakfast! We would highly recommend this B&B! Thanks again! Annemie&Nico

I found Maison Du Bois by chance here in Tripadvisor. I must say, I am extremely thankful for Geoff and Sheridan for the delightful stay. From the time where I emailed Geoff to enquire about the stay until to the time of saying goodbye, it has been nothing but sheer pleasure. To start off, Maison Du Bois itself is wonderful...

The welcome we received at Maison du Bois was first class. The breakfast was superb . The house is charming and there is an outside pool for when the weather is warmer. The only down side is that the private bathroom is downstairs but this did not bother us. We would stay there again. Geoff even dropped us off in...

Beautiful home in a very nice area of Auckland. The home is nicely decorated and you immediately feel right at home. Our hosts, Sheridan and Geoff, were just superb. Our room was very nice and bed so comfy! Sheridan is a gourmet cook and professional caterer and her breakfasts were outstanding (best Eggs Benedict ever!). They gave us great ideas...

I stayed at Maison du Bois for three nights while visiting my grandmother. It's fabulous. My room was light, bright and very comfortable. The linen on the bed was beautiful. The breakfasts are something else. The freshest fruit, yummy muesli (how often do you see those words in the same sentence?!) and then the best corn fritters with bacon and...

The hosts of this B and B, Sheridan and Geoff, are welcoming and extremely accommodating. They went out of their way to transport me to the train station and a variety of other places, and 'rescued' me when I got lost trying to find my own way back from the station. My room was comfortable with all amenities provided. Sheridan's...

Deciding to stay at Maison du Bois for the last day of our NZ holiday was a great idea. Geoff and Sheridan Wood are such gracious and welcoming hosts that we immediately felt at home.
