My stay was extremely enjoyable. I found everything i wanted in this accommodation and more for the price. This is one of the most fantastic accommodations right next to the heart of the city. The CBD is walking distance. I could always retire at night in this cozy cottage and have a good quality night sleep. Baytree cottage refreshed my nostalgia. It is a wonderful place designed in old fashioned architecture. A highly recommended place for anyone who wants to have a true New Zealand Experience. Jas Singh
Looked forward to staying here however the illusion was shattered upon opening the front door to be greeted by an overwhelming smell of mustiness and mould. There was mould evident in the shower cabinet. Despite opening up all the windows and doors the smell persisted during our stay. It became so unbearable we cut our visit short. Some doors did not shut properly or remain open or shut as needed. . The comment from a previous guest regarding a bedroom doubling as the laundry is not an exaggeration - the bed is separated from the laundry area with a wicker screen. Mitigating factors: great location and quiet. Can't recommend this property in its current state, for the tariff charged it needs upgrading.
Response from Owner
there is no mustiness or mould in the is used very often and is cleaned so thoroughly you wouldn't believe it. I dont understand why this family were so bitter...they were only two adults and two children and had a lovely queen bedroom, a cute single room with feather down quilt and sure the third bedroom upstairs is for a child usually and and has a partition..but is still has got carpet on the floor, and windows overlooking the garden and a good quality single bed and a side dresser and storage space. There is another queen bedroom downstairs which the couple chose not to use. Maybe they just want a hotel room not a Ponsonby cottage with polished floors, a beautiful large lounge with 42" Sony SKY, free WiFi, parking directly outside and sun all day.
We stayed at Baytree Cottage for two months when we first arrived in New Zealand. It's in a great location right in the heart of Ponsonby, and Meg is a great host. The house is an old character bungalow and not modern, but it is well equipped for a family, with a dishwasher, washer/dryer, wifi and television with lots of channels. There is a cute garden area in the front. The living areas are very nice and there is plenty of space. We weren't always able to park right outside but we never had to walk too far. We stayed during the coldest part of the year and I can't say the house was very warm (quite typical for houses in New Zealand!), but it was well equipped with heaters and electric blankets so we were still comfortable.
