If your’e planning a stay in Auckland City, in my opinion there would be two options. In the downtown area, or….Ponsonby. If your’e an international traveller reading this, let me describe the area of Ponsonby to you. Firstly, it is 2km from the downtown area of Auckland, which is my other preferred spot. However – the reason I did not buy a house in the downtown area, is that there are no houses in the downtown area, they are all apartments, and – its very noisy, because its the CBD. Trucks with bottles, rowdy party-goers and screeching giggly girls will keep you awake until the large hours of the morning!
If Auckland was a mini New York, then Ponsonby is Williamsburg. If that doesn’t resound with you, let me explain. Ponsonby is an inner city suburb which is the creative hub that people actually live in, closest to the CBD. It is a vibrant mix of creative cafes, bars, designer clothes stores, designer furniture stores…pretty much all things designer. We are not talking Gucci or Prada here, we are talking New Zealands designers, vintage clothes stores, local art galleries…non generic territory sans chain stores.
My cottage is in the ideal location, because it is walking distance to Ponsonby Road, and “Ponsonby Central” as it is known, which is a fantastic creative clutch of cafes, restaurants and stores – a place where, if I were travelling, I would be delighted to happen upon. You can walk up Ponsonby Road and never tire of the sights and stimulations that this vibrant Road has to offer. It has divine spas, upmarket yoga studios, fantastic bars – cool cafe’s, fancy produce stores, and markets at weekends. Its a 2 minute drive to the Britomart and downtown areas and spark arena. You’ll be able to sink into soft, luxurious linens and sleep peacefully amongst a tree-lined street of heritage cottages, which will give you a truely New Zealand experience.
It’s so close to everything that your own transport is hardly necessary, but if you do have a car, it has 2 carparking spaces. Car parking is very hard to find in inner city Auckland, with alot of residents having to park on the street. If you decide to hire a car for the rest of your travels, rest assured it too has somewhere to stay.
Your friends can join in – the cottage sleeps 6 guests. Three bedrooms and the luxury of 2 bathrooms, a beautiful sunny patio area and a very highly specified designer kitchen.
