The Watchtower - Auckland is listed with Airbnb. As an Airbnb Associate we may earn a fee when you book from this page.
Originally built in the early 1900s, this former Fire Tower was used to keep watch over the city of Auckland. It's for this reason that any guests now staying in this newly renovated holiday home are able to make the most of the absolutely incredible views on offer. Climb the modern spiral staircase and sit in the top of the tower soaking in the wonderful views as you gaze over the whole city with a glass of wine.
The holiday home, which sleeps two in one comfy bedroom, is ideal for adventurous couples who don't mind sacrificing a little bit of luxury in order to enjoy a wonderfully unique stay. You also need to be willing to climb your fair share of stairs if you want to enjoy the view! The property is laid out over five stories, with the observation lounge taking up the top floor. From here you can see the harbour bridge, the sky tower, Karangahape Road, Ponsonby Road and Mt Eden.
The property also has a modern kitchen on the third floor with everything you need to prepare some delicious dinners. There's even a dishwasher so you don't have to argue over who does the washing up! The fourth floor is home to a dining and study area, and this space, along with the kitchen, has giant metal beams on either side, which are an integral part of the building's structure, as well as exposed brick walls. This gives the property an industrial chic feel, and adds to the authenticity of your stay, reminding you where you are at all times.
The bedroom, with its super-comfy Queen size bed, offers a great night's sleep and sits on the lowest floor. The room also has plenty of storage for clothes and suitcases, as well as an LCD TV for movie nights in bed. There's also a bathroom with high pressure shower, marble panels, a bidet, a hair dryer, and luxury towels for your added comfort.
The Watchtower is located centrally, meaning you have access to all that Auckland has to offer. There are plenty of amazing restaurants, cafes and bars nearby, as well as the vibrant and fun area of K Road. Here there are yet more of the above, as well as some great shops and some fun nightlife opportunities. You are also just 24 minutes to the harbour and downtown and a 10 minute walk to Ponsonby Road - a road full of boutique shops and fabulous restaurants. You will find a full guide to Auckland waiting for you in the apartment.
