My place is close to the beach, public transport including a ferry to Wellington CBD weekends, great cafes and restaurants nearby, close to historic main street of Petone. You’ll love my place because of the location - beach and bush nearby, private garden for coversation, eating and relaxing, cozy warm art filled house. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and furry friends (pets).

The space
I've lived in this home for around 25 years so have good information about the historic little town of Petone. Although it is so close to the capital city of Wellington. I enjoy meeting new people and work from home; therefore I'll be around to let you know about the local environment...especially the great cafes of Petone.

Guest access
As well as your own room you will have access to the main spaces such as kitchen, wash-house, bathroom, separate toilet, garden and sitting room - where you can either watch TV, listen to music or read. I often have family members and friends to stay as there is a second room available for house guests. So there will often be interesting locals to talk with.

Other things to note
Whenever the sun shines and/or the day is mild anyone staying in this household love to sit in the garden. This is a place of refuge - we have lunches there, breakfast too as the spring progresses; and any spare moments it's great to just sit out there listening to the birds and reading a book, or chatting with whoever comes by.

Location

Petone, Wellington, New Zealand

Petone was the first colonial settlement of Wellington. Local Maori were welcoming and as time has gone on, land protections have been put in place in order to prevent the exploitation which has happened in many parts of New Zealand. An outline of this fascinating history can be viewed and read about in the local Museum on the beach front and in the same street as this house.

I have recently finished working in a management position of several years with a community development position. Now I am focusing on foot massage/reflexology - carried out in my home - which I have been doing informally for 3 decades. I'm keen on walking, yoga, reading, movies and cooking good food. I have a grownup family who live in London, Auckland and nearby. Many of my trips have been to visit these far-flung relatives; although India is my favourite place with a further course in foot massage taking place this year in Rishikesh.

During your stay
I will be on hand for any information you may need about Wellington - walks, sight to see, eating out, movie theatres. In fact there is a group of very small cinemas just down the road from my house called The Lighthouse. If you need some movie relaxation there is always a really interesting schedule on offer.
