St Mary's Bay is one of Auckland’s most historic suburbs with an amazing collection of heritage architecture. Among these historic buildings are St Mary’s chapel, the Leys Institute and the Ponsonby Post Office (now Augustus Bistro) – but there are beautiful hundred-year-old houses on almost every street.
Today, Saint Mary’s Bay is one of Auckland’s more exclusive suburbs, with picturesque streets, luxury homes and incredible water views.
St Mary’s Bay stretches out to an iconic peninsula which features Point Erin Pools, the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, the Auckland Harbour Bridge and Westhaven Marina.
A truly special neighbourhood
XXXII is surrounded by amazing eateries across the dining spectrum: popular casual from Orphans Kitchen, Dear Jervois, and Dizengoff; classics like Andiamo, SPQR and Jervois Steak House; Asian from Blue Breeze, Saan, Cocoro and Azabu; and fine dining at Paris Butter, Ponsonby Road Bistro and Sidart.
Ponsonby has a lively nightlife thanks to its vibrant culture and hip dining scene. The varied bars that line the strip include popular gastropubs, intimate cocktail lounges, bustling nightclubs and edgy live music venues.
Touted as “Auckland’s hippest strip”, Jervois and Ponsonby Road have some of the city’s best boutique shopping. With an eclectic mix of designer, vintage and upmarket brands, Ponsonby is where those ‘in the know’ shop.
XXXII is a stone’s throwaway from Auckland’s premier marina. Westhaven is the gateway to the Waitemata Harbour and Hauraki Gulf – regarded by many as one of the best sailing locations in the world.
