We chose Ponsonby house because of its location, and that worked well. It is close to the Inner Loop busline and that allowed us to leave our car and not have to deal with Auckland traffic and parking.
Our hosts were very nice. They parked their car on the street so we'd have a space to park when we arrived. They shared good information about Auckland and how to get around.
Our room was very clean, bed and pillows were comfortable. Our continental breakfast was delivered to our door each morning, and was very good. The bad news about this was there was no common room to meet other travelers. We did feel like we were in a hotel.
Other pluses, wifi was good, shower was fantastic, neighborhood was safe and lots of late night activity on Ponsonby Street.
