Character central Auckland bungalow with easy access to campuses

We are an academic family planning our own sabbatical, and seeking sabbatical visitors to rent our home. We've lived in this home for over 25 years, and love the family-friendly neighbourhood. We have a three bedroom furnished single storey house in Mt Albert available for rent by a small family or couple for up to 12 months. The house is on a small street with a train station 5 minutes’ walk away. We have a large ( 600 sq metres) family-friendly fenced yard with trees, rustic gardens, and a swing. Our modern fully-equipped kitchen includes a gas hob, electric oven, and dishwasher. The large full bathroom includes toilet, bathtub and a separate shower. The second small bathroom has a toilet and sink. We have two large bedrooms (one queen, one single) and one medium-sized single bedroom. The house has a large private back deck with outdoor furniture. There is a clothes washer and dryer available. There is plenty of off-street parking. It is easy travel to city campuses (Auckland University or AUT) from here by train or bus; 20-30 minutes. You can walk to Unitec in 15 minutes. It is also an easy walking distance to well-regarded primary and secondary schools. A shopping mall with grocery store is a 10-minute drive, or 25 minute walk. There are very good cafés and restaurants a 10-minute walk away. Beautiful parks (including the volcanic Mt Albert domain) are within a few city blocks. The nearest beach, Point Chevalier, is a 10-minute drive from the house. We'd be delighted if renters could take care of our 10-year old birman cat.

About Me
I am a socio-cultural geographer with a broad and largely collaborative research programme. My academic path took me from Auckland to Canada and back. As an MA student at The University of Auckland in the early 1980s, I researched community dynamics and land use change in Northland, the region of my childhood. Receipt of a Commonwealth Scholarship then took me to McMaster University in Canada and a Geography programme with strengths in political economy and quantitative analysis. While absorbing those influences, I retained an earlier interest in humanistic geography and developed a doctoral thesis on the urban experience of psychiatric patients. I returned to Auckland in 1988 for two years of postdoctoral work supported by the Medical Research Council and commenced a lectureship in what was then the Department of Geography in 1990.
