Renovated Grey Lynn studio with private deck and garden situated five minutes' walk from Ponsonby Road. Ponsonby has wonderful cafes, bars and shopping. The studio is close to good transport links to the city (less than 3kms away) and beyond. One block from the fabulous Grey Lynn Park.

The space

The self-contained studio is in the garden of the main house. It has its own garden and is very private. There is one main room containing a Queen sized bed with good quality mattress and 600 thread Egyptian cotton bedding. There is a sofa for lounging and watching TV. From July 2017, there's a new 32" Smart TV with Netflix and Lightbox.

A separate kitchen has a benchtop oven, microwave and a double hob, Royal Doulton 'Pacific' crockery, cutlery and all the necessary pots, pans and utensils should you decide to cook.

The bathroom is off the main room and is stocked with luxurious towels. There is an outside deck with table and chairs which is on the far side of the studio from the house and is totally your own space. Grapefruit for breakfast from outside your door when in season! Ample breakfast for one to two mornings is provided along with tea, coffee and other supplies.

Guest access

The studio, deck and garden off the deck are for the private use of guests.
We will try to meet our guests on arrival but will make arrangements for key handover if this is not possible.

Interaction with guests

We will be around and hope to meet our guests but will not intrude on your space. Feel free to knock on the kitchen door and introduce yourselves; we'd love to say hello and are always very happy to talk about the area or New Zealand and to provide recommendations if needed.

Other things to note

This area of Grey Lynn is very special as we are close to the best of everything - cafes, bars, shopping, parks, transport links, supermarkets, the city and beaches. Locals (and others!) favour Ponsonby Road, Karangahape Road, West Lynn village and the Richmond Road shops - all within easy walking distance. It is a 25 minute walk to the centre of the city where you will find much to see and do in the Wynyard Quarter, the Viaduct and Britomart. The Auckland Art Gallery is also well worth visiting and there are plenty of cinemas. We're happy to make recommendations.

This is the best Air BnB we've ever booked! Immaculately clean, great wi-fi, cool neighborhood (Ponsonby), and Anne left us bake your own croissants with butter and jam which we ate on the sunny back deck in the morning. Just amazing and really perfect for our needs. Thanks Anne!

We had a lovely stay in Anne's studio. It had all the amenities you could ask for, and she went above and beyond to help us and make us feel welcome - loved the croissants in the morning :) Very easy to communicate with and we will definitely stay again when we travel to Auckland. Thanks Anne!

Anne's Rose Cottage in Grey Lynn is a true gem. The listing description is totally accurate, but additionally the cottage has a wonderful energy, with an outside area flowing in naturally creating a relaxing living space, stylish and very comfortable. Though not very big, it is perfect for a couple or a single traveller. As a host Anne couldn't have done more to make me feel more welcomed and thought of every detail, providing food & drink ( a great coffee!) for the arrival, but also stocking up on great quality products in the bathroom. The kitchen is also perfectly equipped. I thoroughly enjoyed my week in Auckland, I'm grateful to have had the cottage as my base there & very much hope to be contacting Anne for future bookings. Thank you Anne!

Great stay at Anne's lovely property in Ponsonby. The studio was everything we needed and in a great location. Anne was very helpful and friendly and always available if we needed anything. The studio is peaceful, well equipped and clean. Lovely garden area to sit out in and enjoy the weather. We felt very welcome here and really enjoyed exploring Auckland from here. Ponsonby is a great base for exploring the city and has a brilliant selection of shops and restaurants. We would definitely recommend Anne and her property and would be glad to stay again.
