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.
The upstairs Room is 6.5m x 3m wide (or 18' x 9') and has its own ensuite with shower, toilet and bidet. It has a Queen double bed and a single bed. The room also has two balconies and views towards the city.
Plus there's a small pool and a large living/kitchen area. Wifi is available.
We're 5 minutes walk from boutique Ponsonby Road (if that) and 15 minutes from the city. There's also a bus-stop round the corner.
Parking can be tricky because this is popular area but you can always park across the driveway.
I enjoy having people on electives and sabbaticals. Talk to me about long-term stays and rates.
The location is brilliant. Few houses would be so close to town and Ponsonby.
Also since I'm a travel writer and traveller myself, I know what people on the move are after.
Look forward to meeting you!
