The Peace and Plenty InnOffering a slice of Provence or English countryside amid the tropical plants and birds of the Southern Hemisphere, the Peace and Plenty Inn is a relaxing getaway just 15 minutes across Waitemata Harbour from downtown Auckland. The inn’s English host, Judy, transformed a Victorian mansion in Devonport into an inviting bed-and-breakfast, embellished with all the ornate mirrors, flowery porcelain, Queen Anne–style antiques, and organza frills one would expect from a proper English estate.
Not as obvious are Peace and Plenty’s sustainability measures, which range from oil-fueled heaters, a rainwater catchment system, and composting to eco-friendly toiletries and local produce. If that’s not enough to put guests’ minds at ease, a soak in a clawfoot tub, a good book by the fire in the library, or a peaceful walk along the Devonport waterfront should do the trick.
