Very good location for city life, cafes, shopping. We had a great time. My wife Found so many things to buy.
Our experience with Ashleigh was just wonderful. My fiancé and booked last minute in a bit of a crisis, and Ashleigh was extremely flexible and accommodating. We are so grateful to have had a 'home' to return to after a long day. I would recommend Ashleigh in a heartbeat to any of my friends and family. She is a very special person!
We stayed with Ashleigh for two nights when we first arrived in Auckland and another two nights before departing New Zealand. Her home is exactly as depicted in the photos - spacious, clean, and very inviting.
We arrived at Ponsonby past midnight on a Monday, but that was not an issue at all with the house key locker located by the main door - pin changes with every new guest. Ashleigh was also very considerate and left the porch light and staircase lights on so that it would be easy for us to find the house and our way up to the bedroom. Communication prior to our arrival was also excellent - Ashleigh made a few recommendations for where we could grab a late bite on the way from the airport to Ponsonby.
We met Ashleigh during the second night of our stay and she was very friendly and generous with anything we needed around the house - kitchen, laundry, etc. We travelled for about a week around North Island before heading back to Auckland and it felt as if we were returning home during our second stay with Ashleigh.
The house is located in a fantastic location with Ponsonby Central just around the corner - we would suggest walking there instead of taking the car (took quite a while to find a free parking spot on a Saturday night). Heaps of cafes and restaurants around the area - coffee at Good One on Douglas St (off Ponsonby Rd) was excellent.
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Ashleigh and wouldn't hesitate to stay with her again in the future and would definitely recommend her lovely home to anyone planning a visit to Auckland!

We had a one night stay at Ashleigh's apartment recently. It is a lovely apartment, very comfortable and light. We had a very good nights sleep. The position is excellent as it is close to the interesting Ponsonby shops and has very good restaurants and bars within short easy walking distance.
We did not get to meet Ashleigh as we left quite early in the morning but our phone conversations indicate she was just lovely. Warm and friendly.
Thank you Ashleigh for sharing your lovely sanctuary with us!

We had a great time in Ashleigh's very nice home. Ashleigh had catered for a good breakfast on the first day. She left the city for the long weekend, and we had her house for ourselves after the first day. This was nice. but we are sure that we would have been perfectly alright otherwise as well, as Ashleigh was very friendly. The location of the house is perfect, just off Ponsonby Road, with its shops, cafes and restaurants. It's also walking distance to the inner city. We really enjoyed our stay at Ashleigh's home.
Ashleigh's place is very nice, clean and the location is perfect. The room provided is very comfortable and Ashleigh is a great host too. So not a single complain, only good things to say. Will definitely stay over again.
Ashley's place was perfect! As the last stop on our trip - we were able to relax as it felt just like home. It was clean, tidy and Ashley had left some great info/recommendations which was really helpful. We were pinching ourselves. I would highly recommend without any hesitation!
Unfortunely Ashleigh were not in the apartment until last night, we would love to have her there all the time cause she is such a nice girl. So nice and Clean home in a great location. Would recommend her Place and come myself again sometime.
Stayed in Ashleigh's house for the final three days of our New Zealand trip. She provides excellent accommodation in a convenient area with lots of cafés,restaurants and individual shops which is within easy reach of Auckland city centre. Thank you Ashleigh, it was a great pleasure to meet you.
Great location for a Ponsonby stay. Ashleigh's property sits behind a beautiful park and is a short walk up to the shops, restaurants and bars. The room was comfortable, the bed was perfect and the bathroom was well lit and had great water pressure in the shower. We made our own breakfast with the fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, etc. provided. Ashleigh was very helpful in mapping our walk to the marina and giving restaurant recommendations. There were plenty of informative brochures in our room as well. We used her washer and dryer - a super important feature for us since we travel light. We would stay again.
Asleigh and Thom are super cool! We fell in love with them! They have an awesome style and we totally dig the New Zealand accent and their amazing sense of humor! They spent most of their time exploring Barcelona but when we did have the chance to hang out, it was like having friends over. They left everything impeccable and even left us a super cute note and a surprise. Guys it was a real pleasure having yall and you're more than welcome back anytime! For any hosts out there, I wouldnt doubt it for a minute! :)
I was thrilled to hear that Ashleigh is starting her first Airbnb! As an experienced Airbnb host ( with many great reviews myself) Ive got pretty high standards, and can assure you that Ashleigh has what it takes to provide a 5-star stay. For a start, Ashleigh's home is amazing. Contemporary, clean and chic, and probably the best central location you could wish for. We often meet at her place for a stroll down to the wonderful cafes and shops of Ponsonby Road, or just relax in the adjoining park. You wont have to take a cab anywhere - literally everything you could want is walking distance from Ashleigh's home. I have recently inspected her guest room with new bed, linen etc and I'm really impressed - I will certainly be referring my guests to her for any city based accommodation they might require. Ashleigh herself is both extremely personable and professional - having been bought up in the upmarket hotel industry there is no doubt she will deliver an outstanding stay. Overall she is offering an unbeatable package. Not only do you have a private bedroom and bathroom which rivals some of the cities nicest hotels, but you will also get to enjoy the entire home ( kitchen, deck and spacious living areas) with the best of Auckland at your doorstep. Whats not to love?!!!
Ashleigh has set up a neat pad right in the heart of Auckland city, in one of the most popular areas for dining, shopping and socialising - Ponsonby.
We've stayed various times at Ashleigh's house, which has a modern, bright atmosphere - and a warm, tidy guest bedroom and bathroom that you can spread out in and use all to yourself. The location is brilliantly positioned - so easy to grab a coffee or visit a cafe/restaurant up the road in Ponsonby with so many options to choose from - just a quick wander there and back, and best of all there's no hassle with taxis or trying to find a carpark!
Alternatively, if you're venturing into the CBD it's still just a quick hop skip and a jump in the other direction.
You'll be well looked after if you stay with Ashleigh at her lovely abode.
I've known Ashleigh for more than two years now and she has built a name among those of us who know her best, as a wonderful host.
She is incredibly welcoming, great company and if you're looking for the best places to visit, eat out, explore or have fun you'll be in great hands with Ashleigh. Having lived here for many years, she's an expert on all the great spots Auckland has to offer (not to mention her home is near many of these great attractions) which can really enhance your stay.
She has a knack for making everyone feel right at home and I have no doubt that you're in for a really great stay if you're with her.
