So for the next stage of our amazing New Zealand Adventure we have been living in Auckland – and staying in a beautiful ‘treehouse’ in Ponsonby. We are renting it from an amazing woman called Beth who runs the nearby B&B 23 Hepburn street. It really is one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed! We have been here for a couple of weeks working from home and enjoying Auckland’s sights before the next chapter of our adventure begins on Weds – more about that in another post!
It has lovely views over beautiful Western Park and is really spacious and sunny inside. It has also been quite an experience staying here during the storms that recently hit New Zealand. Whilst Auckland actually seemed to get off lightest (they have had crazy amounts of snow on the South island and a massive storm in Wellington) we still had our own storm here in Auckland. On Thursday night we had thunder, lightning, very strong winds and torrential rain and hail. Luckily there was no damage and we watched the storm come in from our huge windows in our treehouse.
Anyway, I was also recently sent an email from Tripadvisor highlighting Top 10 treetop hotels so I thought it was perfect the perfect time to share the link for anyone interested in staying in such unique places (one is also in NZ in Kaikoura, although we haven’t yet stayed there)!:
I just thought it was interesting to collect these unique treehouses all together, and we certainly have enjoyed staying in our very own treehouse right here in Auckland! 🙂
