My wife and I stayed in Philip's apartment for a few nights during our February 2014 trip to New Zealand. It was the first place we stayed during our two-week hoiiday, and we were very happy to call it home while in Auckland. It's a space in the lower level of his house that's been converted for use as a small apartment. We found it very clean, comfortable, well-appointed, quiet, and convenient to transit.
It's located on a leafy, tree-lined side street just off Ponsonby's main drag (Ponsonby Rd) in the eastern part of city. The very walkable neighborhood is littered with hip eateries and shopping options. Catching the bus was a breeze, and we were also able to walk to downtown Auckland one day (a brisk 20 mins) to watch some base-jumping tourists at the Sky Tower.
Philip was a good communicator via Airbnb messaging and made us feel very welcome. His description and listing was accurately represented. We felt very good about the overall experience and would definitely return.
Very quiet and green but quite in the centre. And next to ponsonby. Just Great.
Really great location - steps to Ponsonby and a 15-min walk to downtown. The apt is comfortable for two people. Would definitely stay here again!
We had a terrific time in Auckland, made possible in no small measure by our accommodation at Philip's place. We love strolling new cities and Ponsonby was a vibrant and eclectic neighbourhood to experience first-hand.
Since he and family were out of town, we did not get to meet them but everything went absolutely as planned. Great location and a very functional unit.
The apartment is ideally located within walking distance of the CBD and the shops and restaurants of Ponsonby. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
Philip's apartment is in an ideal location, quiet and peaceful, but only a five minute walk away from Ponsonby Rd where you will find a wide variety of restaurants and bars. Philip was great, accommodating our stay even while he was away. Street parking is easy to find, with 120 minutes limit between 8AM - 6 PM and unlimited before or after. Since we were driving most of the day, that worked out great for us.
Very uncomplicated, helpful and friendly hosts. We liked our stay and can recommend this stay to everybody. Many thanks again to philip and all the best
A warm reception from very friendly hosts. A wonderful central location, with available parking. The apartment was comfortable. Just what expected. Thanks for the stay!
The apartment, located under Philip's house, has everything we needed. Great location and Philip was friendly and helpful.
We recently stayed in this 1 bed apartment in Ponsonby, which is a really lovely area with the main street (only a few mins walk away) having some nice little bars, restaurants and shops. The road this apartment is on is idyllic and feels very safe, with free parking at weekends but 2 hours max 8-8 during the week.
The apartment is very clean, modern and has everything you would need for a short stay. It is the converted basement of Philips family home which means you get a bit of noise from the children running around on the wooden floor upstairs but it's manageable. It is also very light and airy despite being a basement.
Met Philip and his family and they were all very kind and welcoming and Philip was on hand to help out with the cooker when we couldn't work out to use it.
Would thoroughly recommend this apartment if you are looking for a stay in Auckland.
