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!
