Beautifully appointed bed and breakfast within a short walk to several good restaurants in upscale Herne Bay. 15 minutes drive to Auckland city central and less than 10 minutes to Ponsonby. Highlight was the gracious host Donald and the delicious breakfasts. Highly recommended when staying in Auckland.
