Great location and Philip was great at communicating and coordinating.
What a great place! I regret to say that we didn't have much contact with our hosts (which was our own fault--we were wildly busy!) but the apartment was wonderful, cozy, and so close to everything Auckland has to offer without being stuck right in the center of the mayhem. Easy to walk and take buses, and great places to eat on Ponsonby road! The bed was comfy, and it was an ideal place to crash after a full day of hiking, ferry trips and fine cuisine. (Also, the wi-fi worked beautifully, which is a must if your phone doesn't take SIM cards and you need to do a little research/get directions!)
Location, location, location. This place was in a fantastic part of town for restaurants, public transport and shopping. The unit is as described and Philip made us feel welcome. Our flight didn't get in til late, but our midnight arrival was no hassle. Would stay again.
We had an excellent stay at the self contained Ponsonby apartment. Phil and Fiona were great hosts giving us information on the apartment and the local area. They responded quickly to any questions, making us feel welcome and comfortable.
The apartment itself is small but definitely roomy enough for our needs. It is light, airy and pretty much self contained, although probably better suited to eating out than cooking a large meal in the evening.
Eating out is easy as it is superbly situated in the Ponsonby area, a short walk from loads of restaurants and bars. We ate all meals locally but also walked into the centre of town which is not so far. Location is the big thing here! The apartment is on the ground floor of a beautiful house in a leafy street full of delightful houses.
A great stay. Thanks.
Phil was friendly, helpful and responsive. Nice apartment in a great location. Ponsonby is full of great restaurants, bars and boutiques all within very short walking distance.
Great place, small and compact with everything you need for a short stay. It was clean and well laid out, close to Ponsonby shops bars and restaurants. Phil made us very welcome without being in your face.
Lovely street with well kept properties and beautiful green trees down both sides of street.
Access is a bit steep so would not be suitable for anybody who is not steady on their feet.
Philip made it easy on arrival...made arrangements should he not be there, showed us how things worked etc. The apartment was beautifully fitted out and most comfortable. in a fantastic location , so close to shops and restaurants in Ponsonby and close to the Inner circle bus for getting into town.
This is definitely not a large apartment; it's tiny! The only doors (and fresh air) open onto the owners carport. The apartment was quite musty/damp smelling so fresh air was required, however there was also a cat that seemed to live there and if you had the doors open the cat was in the room in a flash; cute cat and wouldn't have been a problem if my daughter wasn't allergic to cats! Philip was away during our stay and his house guests were not friendly. I would say this apartment sleeps 2 at the maximum as the sofa bed sits right under the upstairs kitchen and it sounds like there's a herd of elephants up there! Philip's house guest woke at 4am every morning and thumped around for a good hour before retreating back upstairs. The bedding was also less than ideal... I would suggest that some investment be made in decent pillows! This apartment is ALL about the location - beautiful tree lined street 2 minutes from Ponsonby Road... which is very cool and interesting.
Die Unterkunft entsprach unseren Erwartungen nach der Beschreibung und war für unsere Bedürfnisse genau richtig. Die Nähe zur Ponsonby-Road erwies sich als ideal. Sowohl mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln oder dem Mietwagen gut zu erreichen.
Nice mail contact before visit, short Talk upon arrival. Welcoming host, apartement was clean and well prepared. Definitely a place I recommend to stay.
Very sympatic family, esay to communicate with Philip, and the appartment was perfectly clean
Des voyageurs très sympathiques et soigneux. A recommander!
How to describe my experience with Philip and his family?
Well probably they are the most friendly, polite, clean and funny family I have ever met. I would definitely like to meet them again, either as a host, friend or guest back in there home in NZ.
I recently had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Philip Burley & his family at my condo in Phuket. They are very friendly & relaxed people who treat my condo with repsect & I would highly recommend them to other Airbnb users.
He tenido que esperar una horas mas del previsto pero todo bien.
