Food Scene
Only three minutes from the apartment, the French Cafe (it's not a cafe!) is consistently voted one of the finest restaurants in all New Zealand. Lovely food, but you'll probably have to book.

The closest fast food to the apartment - just across the road - and its part of a nationwide chain, so you will at least know what you will get. Good range of pizzas.

If you like trees, open parkland and sweeping views, this is for you. Bring a picnic, and if you are feeling lively, climb One Tree Hill in the neighbouring park to wear it off, and enjoy the great, two-harbour view.

Sightseeing
The most iconic of New Zealand's west coast beaches, with year round big surf, and masses of beach space to laze around in summer. Muriwai, Karekere and Bethells beaches are other great choices.

In my view, North Head and the nearby Mount Victoria offer the best viewpoints in Auckland. Bring a picnic rug, some food and drink, and just sit and watch the boats pass by from this elevated lookout. It does mean a trip over the Harbour Bridge, or a ferry ride to Devonport, but on a sunny day, it is so worth it.

The iconic little Auckland beach, backed by a streetfront of bars, restaurants, and cafes. The water quality is almost always good, the waves are tiny and safe, and in summer there are always lots of babes of both sexes on view. Kohimarama, St. Heliers, and Okahu Bay are also good, but quieter options, and parking might be easier.

This is a 15 minute walk down Queen Street, and it isn't very big, but it does have most of the supermarket essentials, and the shoppers are way hotter than you get in the suburbs.
