It's a warm house that get's a lot of natural light and sun streams in most of the windows including the guest room which get's the morning sun. The supermaket and sereval cafe are only 5 minutes walk away. It takes 15 minutes to walk to Ponsonby Road and 40 minutes to walk into town and there is also a bus stop close by.

My two week stay with Leila was the perfect fit for me. She spent a great deal of time sharing her wealth of information regarding the Auckland area as well as other parts of New Zealand. Her assistance with my upcoming travel plans exceeded my expectations. Her apartment is b…

Leila is a wonderful host and her place on a quaint little street within walking distance of all the bars and cafes off Ponsonby is perfectly located. The room is tidy and sleeps two people easily and she was kind enough to let us use her kitchen to cook and store some food in th…

The house is comfortable and Leila is friendly. The house is in a great location - as the title says, Trendy Ponsonby. There are lots of grocery stores, cafes, and restaurants within easy walking distance. If you don't have a car, this is a good place to stay. You must like c…

The host epitomises the value of this listing. Claiming she had noise issues, she asked us to leave on the 14th of March, despite being paid up to the 31st. I agreed and was told that I would be refunded. However, upon changing the booking to the 14th, the host threatened me by s…

Response from Leila:
Please look at my previous reviews as this really is an exception. This couple were a long term booking of 3 months that did not end well and was cut short by two weeks. For the first time I had to get Air BnB involved and ask them to help me sort it out and I left the final decision to them on how much of the penalty fee should be refunded. It started without problems but I did notice immediately that this is a couple that stays up extremely late (to the point of being bizarre) This isn't down to Jet lag, as they had already been in the country six months before arriving here. They seemed to go to sleep about 5am and sleep in often until 3pm the next day. This isn't ideal but I was prepared to over look it. What tipped me over the edge was they were not considerate about making noise in the middle of the night. They were streaming TV/movies all night and again this isn't ideal but it was the (Hidden by Airbnb) ing at 3.30am with raised voices that I had a problem with. (my house is not large) They are from Pakistan and it isn't actually necessary to (Hidden by Airbnb) at this time, which they proved by (Hidden by Airbnb) ing at lots of others times of the day/night. I asked nicely for them not to (Hidden by Airbnb) at this time and Abeer was apologetic at first but they did kept doing it. On the second time my request was met with aggression and a door pushed back in my face. I warned them if it kept happening I would have to ask them to leave, to which Abeer Replied FINE! When would you like us to go!. I ended up offering them 2 weeks to give them time to find another place and I had hoped we could part ways without any hard feelings, but the next 2 weeks were unpleasant and they made sure their departure was when I was out. Please keep in mind this guest is angry and what they stated needs to be taking with a grain of salt. My cats are well loved and I have a cleaner who comes twice a week. I actually have plenty of storage room if needed, water use isn’t a problem and I have a new microwave.

Leila was a really nice host. She gave us a lot of good information for travelling in New Zealand or for spending time in Auckland. There is a supermarket in close walking distance and it's also close to ponsonby with lots of great bars, restaurants etc. Would stay here again.

I am easy going and artistically inclined. I spend a lot of my time at the local cafes in Ponsonby enjoying arguable the best coffee in the world. I love going to see live theatre and I am a film buff seeing almost all the films shown at our Art house cinemas around Auckland. I a…
