Sian was a delightful young woman to host. It was such a pleasure having Sian to stay and to be able to help her find her way around Auckland and to establish herself for her next move. We would welcome Sian back anytime she is a 5 star guest.

Staying with Cathy and Philip at their beautiful villa was like a home from home. They were so welcoming and friendly and made me feel like part of the family (as did their gorgeous dog Toshiro). Their house is just a few minutes walk from the fashionable Ponsonby Road with great…

Cathy and Phil were lovely hosts. They were very hospitable in welcoming me into their gorgeously renovated villa......and their adorable Toshiro was a delight. Their place is like a haven for artists or creative folk who would love a little time out, and space.... I gratefully …

I stayed at Cathy and Philip's gorgeous villa in Ponsonby for several nights and wished I had time to stay longer. This was my first time in Auckland and I didn't know the area, but Philip was there to meet me and made me feel very welcome. The villa is well located near the ma…

The WORST experience on air B and B I've ever had. They have a large list of ridiculous rules they don't tell you on the site. ( including your NOT allowed to use the beautiful bathtub they advertise) There is no mirror in your room I got a huge lecture from Cathy's husband at …

Response from Cathy:
Quinn hardly spent much time here with us, we offered her a meal on her arrival, which she declined and she went out stayed with friends the first night. We had no communication from her and she turned up the next morning to have a shower. She only stayed the 2nd night and then unexpectedly decided to leave. We are disappointed to hear that she didn't enjoy her stay as all of our other Airbnb guests have been extremely happy here and some have re-booked to come again. Regarding the bath, guest are welcome to use this as long as it is at a time that works in with others, as the bathroom is shared with two teenage girls attending high school. We do provide a laundry service for guests staying 5 nights or more, and had Quinn asked me I would have been happy to show her where everything was. Instead Quinn washed a dress in the bathroom sink and then proceeded to empty our items from the dryer so she could dry her dress, without speaking to anyone about it. There is a generous sized mirror in the bathroom and also a really large mirror in the hallway, which our other quests have been happy with. With the bathroom being shared it was unrealistic for Quinn to spend hours on end in there getting ready to go out. Had we know she needed to do this we could have organised her own mirror for her, again she didn't ask. Quinn didn't seem to fit in well to a shared family situation and perhaps would have been more suited to a private Airbnb accommodation with her own separate facilities. Had her communication been a bit better I'm sure this would have made her stay more enjoyable also.

I had a great experience staying with Cathy and her family. They were very warm and welcoming, and the room was beautiful. The location is fantastic as well, Ponsonby is a lively and vibrant neighbourhood that I enjoyed exploring.
