We spent three very comfortable nights here in early April 2014. Sandra was a brilliant host, with delicious breakfasts and lots of useful tips. We had the suite at the top of the house which suited us perfectly. Central Auckland is an easy walk, and in the opposite direction is Ponsonby, one of the main restaurant areas in town just... More

After a 27 hour trip back home the first thing we needed to do was write a review for Bellas. It is truly fantastic in every way; location, comfort, the hosts, the price are all fantastic. The home baking that Sandra provides is scrumptious - every morning there were muffins and freshly baked ginger biscuits. Doug and Sandra were always... More

Perfect in every way....my friend and I had a wonderful girls weekend away to see the fantastic Cirque du Soleil and couldn't have asked for a better place to be spoilt. A warm and welcoming experience from our first contact to our final goodbye that I would thoroughly recommend to everyone. The rooms in this stylish home were beautifully appointed... More

We stayed two weeks at Bella's and it was such a fantastic visit, we wish we were still there. The house is beautiful and the rooms are perfect. A fantastic location - walking distance to downtown (especially close to the Auckland City Les Mills club) and Ponsoby Road (with all its great restaurants and shops). Doug and Sandra are the...

I visited Auckland for a 3-day training event and stayed here for a full week. Everything inside is immaculate and Doug and Sandra are great hosts. Sandra made home-made muffins each day. Doug drove me to and from the Hilary trail about an hour away, where I was backpacking after the training. They even lent me a sleeping bag when... More

We had a great stay at Bella's in early April. The place is wonderfully designed, the beds really comfortable. Little extra treats in the room which was very beautifully and tastefully decorated. The breakfast was more than sufficient. Our hosts Doug and Sandra were so friendly, helpful and had great suggestions for nearby food and transport options. Bella's is very... More
