“Totally relaxing oasis of calm after a long trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My wife and I travelled to NZ in one go from the UK, with our two young children, aged 4 and 2. We booked this apartment, because we wanted somewhere to stay that would easily accommodate the whole family, and also be a relaxing place to stay after such a long trip.

It turned out to be a great decision. I cannot recommend the McGrigors highly enough. The apartment was absolutely spotless and was a real home from home. It was a great introduction to the real New Zealand, because instead of staying at a hotel, we had breakfast in the main house, eating outside in the McGrigor's beautifully designed garden. Breakfast was a proper feast, and exactly what we needed to recharge our batteries.

The McGrigor residence is in a quiet residential street in the lovely Ponsonby area of Auckland. Within a couple of minutes, we could walk to the centre of Ponsonby, where there are lots of excellent shops and restaurants, with a really cool, trendy feel to the place.

Brian and Clare went out of their way to make us feel at home, and in all honesty, we would have happily stayed for a few more days if we hadn't already planned our itinerary.

We will definitely stay here when we come back to Auckland, and although this is not budget accommodation, you get what you pay for, and this is really a great place to stay.
