Default Any Recommendations for B&B Type Accommodation in or near Devonport?

The title says it all really

Hubby arrives on 16 Jan and is being put up in a hotel for a month by his company - he then needs to find a B&B type arrangement until he finds a house rental to start 1 April (hopefully). Me and our 3 year old are popping over from UK for 10 days - arriving 15 Feb so would ideally like to find somewhere that could accommodate the 3 of us for the first 10 days and then just hubby until the end of March.

Hubby will be working in Devonport so would like somewhere not too far from there - although he will have hopefully got a car by the time the company provided hire car expires.

Any suggestions or recommendations welcome.

Thank you

You could try Airbnb.

I know that Catchafire is a fan of this.

We stayed in a Holiday Houses rental in Browns Bay. It's self catering rather than B&B but was cheap and met our needs. I don't know where it is in relation to Devonport on the north shore.

Here's the link http://www.holidayhouses.co.nz/Brows...&photoID=32645

Other places are available if you wish to search. Yes, we actually stayed there !

The Albany Executive Motor Inn is another place we've stayed. It's ok but expensive and might not be convenient for your husband's commute etc.

We stayed at this self-catering apartment in Takapuna recently. Lovely and spacious (2 bedrooms), fully equipped. The owner (who is very friendly and helpful) rents it out short or long term. It comes with a carport underneath and separate laundry area. It's quiet as there is no-one above or below you. We could use the kayaks and gardens. It's in a road that leads to the beach, 30 seconds walk to the beach and a couple of mins walk to Takapuna Centre.

It was a 5 minute drive (or bus) from Devonport (it may take longer in rush hour I assume, but don't live in Auckland so don't know what traffic is like around there).
