My partner and I came to New Zealand for a wedding and stayed at Richards house. Richard was a wonderful host and gave us plenty of ideas on what to go and see while in Auckland. Richards house is just beautiful, filled with books, artwork and all things vintage! I would highly recommend staying here. It is a nice short walk into Ponsonby where there are awesome cafes and bars. We would definitely stay at Richards again if we were to come back to New Zealand :)
Richard has been a great host and we were really happy to spend Some time with him in his beautiful house. The bedroom was Awesome because you sleep litterly in the library. So if you need some books to read... The location was good, there was just a bus stop in front of the house which bring you in 5 min to ponsomby road. Or you can have a nice 15 to 20 min walk to go there. We highly recommend the place of Richard because you will have a nice stay.
