“At home in Auckland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

The Red Monkey Manor is a stylish, newly-restored Victorian house so we were among the first guests to stay there. It is simply but tastefully decorated and geared to the independent traveler who wants the privacy and convenience of coming and going as you please, cooking your own meals, and feeling like you're in your own home for a week or more. The kitchen has two stoves, two ovens, huge industrial refrigerator, plus a microwave oven, toaster, blender, pots/pans, utensils, etc. There's also ample cabinets to accomodate the various guests' needs for food storage.
There's a TV in every room as well as a big screen TV in the living room with a cozy fireplace. There's free wireless internet, a back-yard garden area with table and chairs for a barbecue or get-together.
The house is on the main street of an upscale neighborhood across from an excellent, well-stocked deli/market with fresh organic produce, meats, cheeses, wine and spirits.
When you walk out, there are many coffee houses, restaurants, and boutiques to choose from, up and down Ponsonby Road. We dined at an excellen Thai restaurant half a block away and had breakfast/lunch just crossing the street. The bus stops in front of the house every 15 minutes and gets you downtown in 10 minutes.
Since we were on business, we arranged for several of our colleagues to stay here also and were able to meet without leaving the house.
We can't imagine staying anywhere else when we return to Auckland, for its convenience, privacy and comfort!

Room Tip: Room # 9 has its own lanai with an incredible view of the Auckland Skyline.

we recently stayed at the Manor whcih is the second accommodation run by red monkey in Ponsenby. its newly refurbished to a high standard and although there were a few things not finished things were being shipped in day by day and it will be a very well equipped and convenient place to stay. it is siutated in a trendy and happening area, good access to public transport, has its own laundry and free wifi with a public access computer.The owners are very friendly and accommodating. only concern would be that if the place is full you could be fighting for kitchen and eating space if the weather is lousy, otherwise plenty of outdoor terrace space in a nice garden. Room number 9 is the one to grab as it has its own balcony with double doors meaning you can lie in bed and see the stars and the city. Very romantic. its also has full disabled acess whcih is impressive. prices are reasonable and good value at time of our booking

We stayed at the Manor which was newly opened. The rooms are furnished to a high standard and beds very comfortable.The shared kitchen had everything you would need.The Manor on Posonby Road is in an excellent location as there are many restaurants along the road and it is only a 20-30 mins walk or a regular bus ( the stop is opposite the House ) down to Aukland city centre. We would highly recommend staying at this accommodation.
