Fodor's Expert Review Great Ponsonby Bed & Breakfast

30 Ponsonby Terr., Auckland, Auckland, 1011, New Zealand

Convivial hosts Gerry and Sally welcome all to their Pacific-theme villa on a quiet street off Ponsonby Road. Rooms are brightened with colorful, locally made tiles and art, and the windows are sandblasted with Pacific designs. The cozy lounge is stocked with music, films, books, and magazines, and has an honor bar. Five of the rooms have kitchenettes and open off the courtyard. A few minutes' walk puts you in the thick of the Ponsonby cafés, and the well-connected owners can point you in all the right directions.
