Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We really enjoyed our stay in this studio. Tanah and Sarah were great hosts with a fabulous sense of humor and we especially appreciated the orientation to the city and help with arranging our transport to and from the airport. The location is fabulous- you will love being so close to Ponsonby.

  • Well, what can we say about Tanah's place?

    Great location with easy access to all the good bits of Auckland; fantastic, spacious room with a comfortable bed; and friendly and eager to help hosts, who are happy to impart some top recommendations for stuff to do and places to eat.

    We really couldn't have made a better choice for somewhere where to stay in Auckland. Cheers TJ & SJ!

  • Absolutely loved the Ponsonby studio! Close to CBD, beautiful space, comfy bed, great host! Would love to stay there again.

    January 2014
  • Absolute perfection! Clean, modern, convenient, and every little detail carefully considered and executed. Highly recommend. Our only complaint is that we didn't stay longer! Actually one other tiny detail is the 10am check out is a bit early.

  • I felt like a queen staying in this gorgeous studio :) Everything was very comfortable and it's in a lovely area. I enjoyed meeting Tanah Jane when i was invited in for a coffee, and SJ briefly. I had the feeling I'd like to spend more time with them both :) I would decribe them as vibrant, generous and creative people who enJOY their lives. I will be whole heartedly reccommending this studio to friends and family. Thank you both for having me.

  • My wife and I finished our New Zealand trip at Tanah's in Auckland. It was a clean and tastefully decorated studio. Tanah was kind enough to provide bread, fruit, honey etc which was very thoughtful. The location in Ponsonby is close to a few small markets and there are plenty of dining options close by. Going to downtown auckland is an easy 10-15 minute bus ride with the bus stop close by. Wifi worked fine generally but was spotty at times towards nighttime. The only 2 drawbacks are (1) The neighborhood is a bit hip and you may hear music/noises from houses around you as they tend to be quite close but it generally dies down by midnight. (2) The bathroom is fairly small and with the placement of the medicine cabinet made it was very difficult to wash your face or do anything over the sink.

    Response from Tanah Jane:

    Heh Danny Chen great to have you both stay & spot on with the cabinet - the builder has replaced it with a new 'flush' model so lots of room now. Love to see you when you return to NZ.warmest regards Tanah & SJ

  • Had a wonderful stay in Auckland/Ponsonby. The unit was private and beautiful. Very well maintained, clean and extremely comfortable. The hosts were very accommodating for anything I needed and then some. The location is minutes, on foot, from so many hip bars, cafés and restaurants. Quiet and peaceful.
