We stayed 2 nights at Beaumontstay and it suited us perfectly. It is a 3 bedroom townhouse on the fringe of the city. So it is close enough to walk to the city centre, harbour/viaduct and the fantastically diverse Ponsonby Road but far enough from the city centre that you don't get that constant city hum.
There were 2 other couples staying when we stayed however we only crossed paths once; which is a shame because they were friendly interesting people. You wouldn't know that other people were in the house once in your room.
There is a communal lounge/kitchen/dining room and we were encouraged to make ourselves at home - which we did. We had a 4 month old baby, so stayed in one night and cooked ourselves dinner. We also used the washing machine, which was really handy with a young one.
The decor is modern and fresh, great quality finish and extremely clean. I wish I had Wendy's cleaner at home!
Beaumontstay is located on the fringe of the city and is surprisingly quiet. It was incredibly warm in Auckland when we were there and I thought I wouldn't sleep well with the heat. However with the windows open and a little fan, it was the best sleep we had had in a while. I was also anxious for the other people staying with our little baby, given that he was prone to waking up in the night...which he did once. However everyone staying was informed by Wendy and they were absolutely fine with it and said they didn't hear a peep.
We stayed on the top floor, which was a climb with our bub and the luggage but once up, it was a fantastically big room with a great ensuite and balcony. We left a bulk of our luggage on the ground floor and only took up what we needed. Wendy kindly provided a portacot.
Our stay was made all the more relaxing by Wendy, the owner of Beaumontstay. She is extremely friendly, attentive to detail and is available for assistance as much or as little as you need.
We were only in Auckland for 2 days and enjoyed exploring Ponsonby Road, with a fantastic array of cafes and shops (great vintage shops too). We also wandered to the viaduct at the harbour for lunch and the city for a little look around - all accessible by foot.
We would definitely return to Beaumontstay and highly recommend it for a corporate stay, couples and families.
