I had a lovely stay at Laura's home and felt most welcomed by her and her family. The bed was absolutely one of the best ones I've ever slept in. Really! Great mattress, linens and pillows. The house is in a beautiful neighborhood and it's a 15-20 minute walk through a park to Ponsonby which is one of Auckland's hip areas. I found fun little shops and cafes close by. Best find: Little Bird. (Amazing vegan restaurant) Another tip for first time visitors: free walking tour of the downtown area (every day at 10am from outside ferry bldg)

Laura and Ross are lovely hosts, making us feel very welcome in their home. We were given great recommendations for dining choices and things to do and see. Daisy the dog was an added bonus - super-friendly and a cuddle monster. The house is quirky and characterful and located in a lovely neighbourhood close to Grey Lynn park and the hip shops and restaurants in Ponsonby Street. The bedroom is spacious with lots of storage space, nicely decorated and comes with tea & coffee making facilities. The bathroom is located across the hallway from the room and was spotlessly clean. Easy parking outside the house - a bonus in Auckland! Would recommend and also stay there again myself.

We had the most wonderful airbnb stay ever! Laura and Ross were as sweet and kind as they were helpful. The accommodation was perfect: clean, calm and very beautiful! Everything was easy: getting into the city, finding Cafés and Restaurants and most of all the communication with Laura and Ross. We were even able to store food in the fridge and do some laundry. Thank you again, Laura & Ross for making our arrival and stay in Auckland such a wonderful time!

Laura User ProfileLaura is a superhost.

A Scot, a Kiwi and our cheeky little girl, plus a Daisy dog, living in sunny Auckland after recently returning from overseas. We like travelling, popular culture, food, vinyl records and a wee dram of whiskey, while our daughter prefers duplo and strawberries.

We have been lucky enough to have positive airbnb experiences, staying in clean, comfortable spaces with friendly hosts who give us space. We would like to offer the same to our guests.
