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.

Yvonne and Son Tom made us feel very welcome The bedroom was very spacious and had a balcony on both ends with a view overlooking the city

Response from Yvonne:
How rude and frankly inaccurate. For a start my airbnb profile describes the breakfast as toast and cereals. To date two different types of bread, five spreads and two types of muesli, tea or coffee have been enough for most people. Eggs are not on offer as you should have read. You should also have read that I don't allow people to cook yet you thought nothing of cooking your eggs without even the courtesy of a please or thank so. Just as I allowed you to come in to the room four hours before my specified check-in. No thanks there either. Also the bathroom floor had been cleaned that morning, scrubbed in fact. It might pay you to remember that you are in someone else's home, not a hotel where perhaps your entitled graceless manner might be acceptable.

We had a great time at Yvonne's home. The location, just off of Franklin Street where every home is decorated for Christmas is awesome. Ponsonby is a quick few minute walk where one can choose from every conceivable type of restaurant you can imagine as well as many, many bars…

Thanks so much John and Allison. You'd better come round when you are back in town. No getting away from us that easily!
