Bella's is a beautiful property. As an architect I was really impressed by the great level of detail used in its design to transform the house into 3 lovely guest rooms and fabulous living areas, both inside and out. We had the 'city lights' suite with stunning views over Auckland city from the room and private balcony. The owners Doug... More

Myself and my wife stayed at Bella's on our first day arriving in Auckland, New Zealand. The B & B is central in Auckland and easy to get to. The room we had was more like a five star hotel than a B&B, excellent breakfast and Doug and Sandra made us very welcome and helped us out with things to... More

I was confident the reviews and photos of Bella's B&B would meet my expectations and they did. My stay was in the ground floor Magnolia room. This is a superior, spacious, beautifully furnished and decorated accommodation at the city edge. The added plus as a solo traveler is the personal attention from Doug and Sandra regarding any queries a tourist... More
