We built our home 4 years ago on a hillside site in Seatoun with great views over Wellington harbour. Its a flat sunny drive on section. We included a self contained apartment for family and friends who visit, so its fully furnished with all the advantages of being in a quiet seaside location close to the airport and a short drive to the city. There are decks for outdoor living. Parking is at the door and easy turnaround on site.
After you park your car by the front door, it is a short walk along the deck to the apartment, which has its own entrance separate from the house. All rooms in the apartment have doors or a ranchslider opening onto the deck. It is fully furnished including laundry with washer and drier, kitchen with hob and fridge and all appliances and utensils. The apartment contains a bedroom with queen bed, bookcase, (we hope you enjoy our selection) side tables and reading lights. There is a built in wardrobe, dressing mirror, and luggage rack. I think you will like our Japanese art. The lounge is open plan with the kitchenette. It has a sofa bed (single) and a dining table and chairs, and like the bedroom has a built in wardrobe. The kitchenette has all the plates cups glasses, toaster, kettle etc and utensils you will need plus detergents cloths towels etc and we will make sure there is tea coffee, milk and a bottle of good New Zealand wine waiting when you arrive. There is a small fridge, hob and pots and pans if you want to do your own cooking. Like the bathroom/laundry the kitchenette floor is tiled with carpet everywhere else. The bathroom has a glass shower box, tiled walls, lighted mirror and heated towel rail and under floor heating There is a Bosch washer and drier with ventilation system All rooms have radiator heating with individual room controls. We have a panel connected fire alarm system and security system. There is unlimited WiFi. We supply all towels, linen and bedding. The full height windows are all double glazed
Our guests have full access to the outdoor decks and garden areas. On a fine day there is no better place to be then on the deck with a glass of wine enjoying the harbour views with the shipping coming and going
Interaction with guests
We live in the house and hope that we will meet and spend some time with our guests. If they want to they can meet our Boxer dog -Benson. The apartment is self contained, and our guests are able to come and go as they choose
Other things to note
There is an excellent bus service from Seatoun to the City and we often use this ourselves as its quick and avoids any parking problems at the city end.
There art plenty of interesting local cafes and restaurants and nearby is the Weta Workshop tour and shop
