I'm thinking of an extended holiday in NZ and I'm looking for some info on Auckland. I'll probably be going there for about a year and I want info on Auckland neighbourhoods. Where is the "Surrey" of Auckland, where is the "Yaletown" etc. I want to do a preliminary search for accommodation here and from personal experience apartment hunting in Vancouver you need a bit of local knowledge to separate the wheat from the chaff when reading craigslist.
Ideally I'd like to talk/email/PM with someone who has been there and spent time in Auckland sometime in the last 2-5 years.
BCSB don't fail me now!
