This private 3 bedroom house is high up in Houghton Bay nestled in the town belt bush line. Gorgeous views of Lyall Bay & the airport from your room, lounge. Your room has a queen bed with heat pump, towels and your own private bathroom. Help yourself to breakfast, tea and coffee. There is a bus service to the city thats just up the road, and happy to pickup from airport and drop off. The only setback are the multiple stairs to the house from the road but thats why the view is so spectacular!

The space

Our house is a very open sunny 2 storeyed house full of artwork which is guarded by Ferdinand the very placid 10 year old cat. There is a small balcony off the lounge and also a vege garden outside the kitchen that links into the the town belt bush line.

Guest access

You'll have your own bedroom with queen bed, heat pump, wardrobe and drawers. Your very own bathroom is across the hallway and your welcome to use the kitchen, dining room and lounge which are all on the top floor of the house.

Interaction with guests

My work time is very flexible during the day so I can potentially offer transport to the city or to airport, ferry etc if needed no worries.

Other things to note

There are a number of stairs to get up to the house but the privacy and views are the reward for the short walk.

Sean's place is an awesome little escape from the hustle of the city, yet so close to everything. The view over the water is well worth the climb! Plus it's good for your health. Sean is a top bloke and talented artist as well and the house is beautifully curated with lots of personal touches! Looking forward to a return visit

Fabulous location with amazing views, handily located to airport and public transport. A really homely feel to this house and I was made to feel really welcome! The steps up to the house are worth it for the view you are rewarded with at the top, mesmerising! Thanks for the airport pickup and all the info, very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Sean picked my cousin and I up from the airport and he was so polite and welcoming. The views of the city are absolutely spectacular and didn't cost the world. Thanks Sean for your hospitality and accommodating us.

While the access to Sean's house is not the easiest, the reward would have to be one of the most spectacular views one can get around the city of Wellington! The bedroom is spacious and the bed itself, very comfy. Sean and partner, as well as Ferdinand the cat, were very welcoming and generous with sharing the kitchen and lounge area. Overall, very happy with my stay.
