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

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.

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.

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
