Beautiful modern town house in the heart of Aucklands bustling suburb of Ponsonby. Aucklands best bars, cafés and night life on our doorstep - including a supermarket next door. I have international plug adaptors, bathroom products, beautiful linen, stocked kitchen, BOSE docking station, a car to rent, great local advice - and could likely provide anything else required - including cooked breakfasts for a small fee. Love meeting new people and can be as social or private as required!

The space

Amazing location, everything in Auckland is literally on your doorstep. Walk to downtown, the ferry terminal, Ponsonby, K Road, bars, cafes, restaurants, nightlife, shopping, galleries, parks. Its ALL here!

Busses are all close by, but most things in the CBD are walking distance from the house.

You can have access to everything in the house. I'm not precious - if its here, please enjoy it. What ever makes your stay more comfortable.

For your ease I have soaps & toiletries, umbrellas, hair dryer, international plug adaptors, medical supplies, fresh water bottles, extra linen, beach towels, insect repellent, sun screen, coat hangers, sewing repair kit, local maps, mail service - if I haven't mentioned it, I'm sure I can accommodate it :-)
I share the house with beautiful baby Pug puppy, Eddie! So best to keep your bedroom door closed so he's not tempted to chew your shoes.

I love to interact with people from other places cultures and backgrounds. Enjoy good food wine and conversation - but also very happy to 'leave you be' in your own privacy.

Shona's home is modern and comfortable. Close to all the good eats and bars. We loved sharing time with her little pug Eddie! He's the best :) Shona was lovely and had good tips on the area, hope to return.

Fabulous neighborhood. Well appointed private room and bath. Comfortable living area. Shona is a wonderful host. She has a lovely new dog, and suggest this is ideal for folks who enjoy puppies.

Thank you for a great stay Shona and Eddie! Great place, close to all the shops, bars and restaurants of Ponsonby and city centre easily accessible, we walked most days! The room was lovely; comfortable and private! Ps. The shower was the best! The room and host were EXACTLY as described; friendly and respected privacy but very helpful in providing information to two Welshies trying to find our way around Auckland. Highly recommend staying here!
