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

I couldn't rate this accommodation, and host hospitality high enough. This is my second stay at Bella's, and my memory of my last stay experience was going to be hard to surpass...but surpass it did!

What can I say - this was the most beautiful, restful place to stay!! The gorgeous villa was spotlessly clean, the breakfasts amazing!!!, and the hosts so friendly and helpful.

We only spent one night at this small B&B in Auckland. Next time we will stay much longer! This is a superior option to most (all?) Auckland hotels. The service from Sandra and Doug are personal, professional and genuine. The B&B is a quick walk from fine restaurants and good shopping. We stayed in the City Lights Suite, and we... More

The room was clean and the design of the house was very nice! The reason I gave 3-star it is because during the breakfast the owners of that place made ​​me feel that they were in a hurry and that I should adjust myself to their commitments. But as a guest I believe that the owners should try their best... More
