My husband and our 4 years-old daughter stayed in Philip's apartment for three nights during our trip to New Zealand in April 2014. The apartment was very clean and well-appointed, and most of all very well located in the leafy area of Ponsonby. We loved the neighborhood which is littered with little eateries (we had one of the best pizza ever outside of Napoli) and nice stores - very vibrant on a Saturday morning. Catching the bus was to town was easy too and it will take less than 10 minutes to get there. Philip was a great communicator via Airbnb and his lovely daughters even provided some toys for our little ones to play with. thanks for our great stay! We would definitely return or recommend the place to friends.
Great apartment and host. Best location, short walk to many interesting bars,cafés and shops.
Everything you need for a short break.
You do have to negotiate a very step drive on foot so wouldn't suit people who have difficulty walking.
We will defiantly stay again.
The place was darling!! Super close to cute ponsonby! Very easy to get to and super clean and modern. Recommend!!!!
Really great apartment and amazing location. Definitely keen to stay there again.
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.
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
We really enjoyed our stay, comfortable and extremely convenient for Ponsonby and the city centre, with lovely easygoing helpful hosts.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
