About Den At Auckland

Den At Auckland is different from other guest houses, but it’s the face behind this beautiful property that really makes this place special.

Meet Den: The Owner of Den At Auckland

Den Drysdale has run a successful book business for almost 40 years. During that time, Den has also renovated a number of houses, including the Auckland Road Guest House, to a very high standard. Den has indulged in a number of interests and activities in addition to running Den At Auckland.

Cooking is his Passion

As a certified chef, Den can often be found in the kitchen crafting a delicious meal. This is good news for residents of Den At Auckland, who are sometimes treated to these creations. (He’s currently taking a course on Chinese cuisine.) In the evenings, you can frequently find him listening to folk music or playing guitar himself.

Never a dull evening

Aided by his love of local history, Den is definitely a people person. He’s always up for listening to (or telling) a good story. They might even be about boats or his time in The Merchant Navy.
