Less than 500m from Ponsonby Rd and 5mins drive to Eden Park Stadium, this sunny and modern 3 level townhouse overlooking eclectic Grey Lynn, is perfectly positioned for your Auckland getaway. Watch the sunset over the Waitakere Ranges each night as you enjoy your pre-dinner drink.
Making yourself at home in Auckland couldn't be easier in this easy living, sunny and airy townhouse right in the heart of Grey Lynn and Ponsonby. It is so handy to everything, you won't even need a car so can avoid the Auckland traffic altogether! Walk less than 5mins and you are in amongst Ponsonby's plethora of cafes, bars and restaurants, unique fashion and design stores. This townhouse is positioned right on the fringe of the residential and commercial part of Grey Lynn with great views of the historic villa rooftops in amongst urban development which is changing on a daily basis.
It is northwest facing so gets all day sun and to top it off, you can see the sun set over the Waitakere Ranges every night while you sip on your pre-dinner drink.
Whether you are in Auckland for work or play, this is your perfect base for whatever you need during your stay.
The whole place is yours! :-) Including use of the laundry facilities in the garage if need be.

Other things to note
Easy walking distance to both Eden Park (its on the Fan Trail and 15min walk via Kingsland) and Western Springs. The quirky West Lynn and Kingsland neighbourhoods are also nearby and walking distance. Local barista coffee is within less than 3 mins walking distance and there's even a 24/7 Gym and yoga studio available a few metres down the street.
Newmarket is only 10mins drive away and Vector Arena and the ferry terminal is approx an $20 cab ride to town.
We are 1 of 6 townhouses so ask guests to consider our lovely neighbours who are equally considerate :-)
We are a couple in our mid thirties who love all things relating to design, good food and wine and the outdoors. I am a brand marketing manager and my partner Will is a furniture and interior designer who is based in Raglan when he is not in Auckland. We love to try new places to eat and drink around Auckland so always have good recommendations for you to try out in the area. Our townhouse is so handy to the best parts of Auckland, we want others to be able to enjoy it when we aren't in town. We have used Airbnb a lot ourselves whilst travelling around Europe and had some of our best experiences. We have only just started being hosts ourselves so we hope you enjoy it :-)
