Our home

An ideal Rugby World Cup base!

This apartment is in a modern architecturally-designed block of four floors, (serviced by a lift) with six apartments on each floor and two floors of secure parking underneath and a high proportion of owner-occupiers.
The apartment is on the fourth floor and was renovated three years ago to a comfortable standard with quality furnishings. Living area and bedrooms are carpeted, with underfloor heating to tiles in bathrooms and kitchen dining areas.
It has two double bedrooms with queen-sized beds, one with en suite bathroom (shower, basin and toilet).
The living area's glass doors on the sunny easterly side of the building open to a roofed veranda furnished with seating and table.
The kitchen is small, functional and well-equipped.
The apartment is clean and pleasant, and we would provide fortnightly visits from our cleaner.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a married couple, combining a life-style of farming in the Waikato (the adjacent province to the south) with working part-time in the legal information profession in the city.
    We have adult children nearby in both places, who are married with their own children, so we enjoy that connection. They are willing to help with back-up should there be any needed for anyone in the apartment.
    We have travelled fairly widely but have never done a home exchange before. We see this as a way to experience the lifestyle of a place in greater depth, with the comfort of not needing to pack up and move on before we feel we have really learned about the place as we wanted to.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The neighbourhood of Grey Lynn / Ponsonby is emerging from a commercial/residential mixed-use past, (with a mixture of century-old villas, modern apartments and existing commercial premises), into a cool central city location, with many of the residents being involved in the arts or professions. It is within a 5 minute walk to Ponsonby Road's clubs, cafes, great restaurants and shops, and Western Park, a popular area for exercise and relaxation. There are supermarkets, wine shops, local dairies, a public library and a medical practice along Ponsonby Road.
Buses are frequent and the nearest stop is a 2 minute walk from the apartment.
The city centre with shops, harbour (ferries to the islands of the gulf or to the attractions of Devonport), art galleries, museums and libraries, is either a short bus trip or a 30 minute walk away.
Eden Park, home to the October 2011 Rugby World Cup, is a comfortable 30 minute stroll in the other direction.
This area of the city is well-placed for motorway access either to north or south. The international airport is 30 minutes away by airport transfer or car.
