Hi, Im Louise. Brought up in Auckland and spent most of my adult years between San Francisco and NZ. I work a mix of Emergency Nursing and Midwifery. I love the life NZ offers and spend as much time in the outdoors a i can.
We had an amazing time in beautiful Auckland, and staying at Louise's place was a huge part of it. The studio is exactly as described and shown in the pictures: a self-contained, private unit located in the garden, with all the necessities for a pleasant stay.
In fact, Louise provided us with milk, fruit, cooking oils, coffee on arrival, making our stay such an easy one. She also offered to lend anything else that could be useful or needed. Louise is the absolutely perfect host: great communications, generous and welcoming.
Highly recommended oasis in the heart of Ponsonby, Auckland's lovely residential neighbourhood within walking distance of the CBD.
Louise has got the loveliest garden studio around! It was exactly as pictured, and then some! (irrelevant but I loved the blue couch against the red floor) this studio honestly has everything you would need, it even has an oven! not that we did any cooking at all, but this would have been sufficient for that. Louise kindly left us some breakfast in the fridge but we didn't have any of that (sorry abt that Louise!) as there're just too many nice cafes in the Ponsonby area for brunch. I'd definitely recommend this place. For folks with kids, there's a playground in the next lane too.
Die zwei Tage in Auckland bei Louise waren Startpunkt unserer Neuseeland-Reise und ich könnte mir nach einer gefühlt ewig-dauernden Anreise in dieses wunderbare Land keinen besseren Platz in dieser Metropole vorstellen..
Ponsonby ist ein 'angesagter' Stadtteil, v.a. wenn man am Abend ausgehen möchte..
Louises Unterkunft ist ein kleines Gartenhäuschen mit eigener Terasse, auf der sich wunderbar frühstücken läßt. Durch Bad und Kochmöglichkeit ist man völlig unabhängig.
100% weiter zu empfehlen
Louise was a great host and the accommodation is exactly as described on the site. It is located in a fantastic location in Ponsonby within walking distance from many great restaurants and shops. I would particularly recommend Mekong Baby, for amazing asian cuisine, and Mea Culpa, a great cocktail bar - both within 5min walk from the studio. Thanks again Louise, we had a great stay!
Hi Louise, we're back home again. Our stay at your place was absolutely fabulous. Great quiet neighborhood, shops and restaurants very close at Ponsonby road. Walking distance to city centre. Nice spacious very clean and fully equipped garden house. Last but not least: your a great host, thanks a lot!
Hartstikke bedankt, groetjes Chris en Jo.
Perfect location and lovely studio in a leafy garden. Room was clean with everything we needed including milk in the fridge and a bowl of fresh fruit. Would definitely recommend!
Staying in Louise's suite was fantastic. Lovely accommodation, deck and proximity to great cafes. Louise was most accommodating and did everything to ensure we had a great stay in Auckland. Thanks Louise!
This Garden apt. is a little gem! Love having my own private deck to sit and enjoy morning tea and evening cocktails :-). Louise is a lovely host and made me feel very welcome, ensuring I had everything I needed. The accommodations are just a five minute walk to the Ponsonby Rd. where, after brunch and a Flat white at Lambeth & Co., I would hop a green link bus to the CBD.
We had a wonderful stay at Louise's studio. We enjoyed the calm atmosphere on the deck outside. The studio is peaceful but located right in the middle of Ponsonby. The studio provides complete privacy and is clean and tidy. We would like to come back anytime.
Louise's garden house was really wonderful with all things you need available.
The neighbourhood is lovely, away from the busy centre, but with many nice shops and bars around.
and Louise is very kind, always willing to help you out if there are problems.
