What can I say...this has been one of the best AirBNB stays I have ever had! Relocating back to NZ after 5 years away, and arriving on a very late flight, Tanah's apartment was the most welcoming thing I could have hoped for. Spacious and tastefully furnished, a few minutes from the best restaurants in town and a 5 minute bus ride into town. The place was clean, Tanah was extremely warm and friendly and the fresh fruit every morning was just the best! This place would be great for executive stays as it has a study desk, high speed internet and very close to the city. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed staying in the Ponsonby studio. It was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and really well located for getting downtown - and going to the zoo!
My only slight difficulty was not having a sink, other than the small bathroom sink, so we didn't have anywhere to rinse cups, plates etc. While the studio obviously isn't advertised as equipped for full self-catering, this made it difficult doing simple things like breakfastwhen travelling with a young child. However Tanah and Sarah were incredibly hospitable in washing what we'd used each day and providing a plentiful supply of clean plates etc, which was a good work-around.
All in all a great place to stay, many thanks!
Hi Anna glad you enjoyed your stay with your charming wee daughter, sounds like the day at the zoo nearby hit the spot !
On a practical note - Yes you are correct we have a 'kitchenette' & we do all your dishes for you.
This week we are adding a wee kitchen sink for guests such as yourself who may want to do their own dishes. Love to see you both back real soon warm regards Tanah & SJ
Great cozy studio in the hipster neighbourhood Ponsonby. Highly recommended!!!
We had an excellent stay. Tanah provided everything we needed- wifi, towels, breakfast (toast, butter, jam, water, coffee/teas), and the studio was SO cute. It was the perfect space for my brother and I since there was a fold out couch.
We did not interact with Tanah but had a great stay. Tanah was very responsive and even provided rental car suggestions that were helpful.
The location is excellent!
