The space

Welcome to Auckland!

This grand villa in the heart of Freeman Bay was once the old rectory. It still has presence and sits proud above street level. It's full of New Zealand art since this is one of my passions.

A great location - the house was a short walk to Ponsonby Rd. The rooms were clean, spacious, light and airy, with comfortable beds. Yvonne is a friendly and thoughtful host, and I would stay here again.

Yvonne was a super host, her communication was great with instant replies to emails and phone calls. Her house was in walking distance to Ponsonby, great shops and restaurants. We were so lucky to get a great host who went out of her way to make us all feel at home. Thank you

Thanks so much guys. Now all I want you to do now is write to Adele and persuade her to tour here again so I can see her this time and you can have another shot at a concert when it's not raining. Great to have you all.

Nice place to stay in Auckland, the location is perfect, only a walking distance to Ponsonby Rd & Victoria market, where you can find almost everything from a good food to a fancy dress. Furthermore, Yvonne was a great host and a fun company to chat with. We spent 2 night in Auck…
