My back gate opens onto one of the area's prettiest parks (Western Park) - an excellent place for jogging/exercise or just a quiet, peaceful stroll.


Whether it's the Museum, Art Gallery, Waterfront, or Eden Park - there are so many city attractions close by which you can easily walk to, or catch a short bus ride to.
I have plenty of tourist brochures for these places around Auckland to entertain yourselves - whatever the season!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Stayed in Ashleigh's house for the final three days of our New Zealand trip. She provides excellent accommodation in a convenient area with lots of cafés,restaurants and individual shops which is within easy reach of Auckland city centre. Thank you Ashleigh, it was a great pleasure to meet you.

  • Great location for a Ponsonby stay. Ashleigh's property sits behind a beautiful park and is a short walk up to the shops, restaurants and bars. The room was comfortable, the bed was perfect and the bathroom was well lit and had great water pressure in the shower. We made our own breakfast with the fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, etc. provided. Ashleigh was very helpful in mapping our walk to the marina and giving restaurant recommendations. There were plenty of informative brochures in our room as well. We used her washer and dryer - a super important feature for us since we travel light. We would stay again.

    March 2014
  • Ashleigh is a warm and welcoming host, with a great attention for detail. Our room was incredibly comfortable, and the bathroom was situated conveniently across the hall. The location can't be beat - right in the middle of Ponsonby, a neighborhood filled with fantastic food, beverages, and nightlife. We highly recommend this stay!

    March 2014
  • Location, host, and home were all lovely. Would definitely recommend!

    February 2014
  • This house lived up to its previous good ratings in every respect. The house is delightful, clean and tidy, the bed was comfortable, the location is brilliant. Ashleigh was great to deal with and well organised, and also nicely balanced friendliness with being unobtrusive. Would definitely stay here again if we get the chance.

    February 2014
  • Ashleigh is a very good host and helps you if you need. We loved our stay in her house which is really silent, near from the city and relaxing. Thank you!

    February 2014
  • What a fantastic trip! The house was amazing and very central!
    We came over for les mills filmings and this was a prime spot only a 10 minute walk to les mills Auckland and a 2 min walk to Ponsonby road for dinner!

    Ashleigh was such an amazing host, we truly felt at home! I loved how Ashleigh contacted me before our visit and gave us so much help when we arrived and throughout our stay!

    Thankyou Ashleigh! We will be back!!

  • Ashleigh's house was the perfect place to start our kiwi adventure. Communication prior arrival was perfect and it was a great joy to feel at home so far from home. The house was comfortable and the neighbourhood full of interesting shops and cafes.

    January 2014
  • We had a great time staying with Ashleigh. She was open, helpful and uncomplicated and we enjoyed sharing her space with her which she offered generously and made us feel welcome in. Her place was an excellent base to explore Auckland from, whether it was by car, foot or public transport. And lastly, the bed has to be mentioned-it was so amazingly comfortable.
    Thank you for having us, Ashleigh.

    January 2014
  • Ashleigh's place is in a very nice neighborhood, excellent location. My husband and I enjoyed the 2nights we stayed there and as Ashleigh was out working, we had the place to ourselves most of the time.
