First thing you may want to know is I am double vaccinated. That out of the way I am also a friendly, knowledgeable local and have lived in Ponsonby for 20 years. I am happy to give you some suggestions on the best cafes, beaches, day trips and transport options. I am a former television newsreader and now a walking tour guide. I still have a keen interest in journalism and news and current affairs and I live upstairs from the airbnb. Self check is available and I will give you total privacy while you are here. I love good coffee, great food and cycling.
