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 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.
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 a smoke free property so no smoking please
The studio has beautiful polished wooden floors so we'd appreciate it if shoes that might damage the floors weren't worn inside.
We have great neighbours whom we wouldn't want to upset, so while quiet entertaining is fine, no noisy parties please.
New Zealanders who love Grey Lynn and all that it has to offer. Never going to leave! We look forward to meeting our guests and hope that our studio provides a welcoming place to stay during your visit to our little spot of paradise.
