Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Bushy Rest is a unique modern Wellington home on a hill with covered parking. Close to the city (20 m walk downhill) nestled into a tree covered cul-de-sac that is so quiet and peaceful you wouldn't know a city is nearby. Sheltered from Wellington's famed norwester the bird life is enchanting! You will hear the tuis singing, wood pigeons flapping overhead and an occasional kaka's screech. We are situated close to the Brooklyn Village with it's popular Penthouse Cinema, restaurants & take-outs.

A delightful place to stay, awesome sociable hosts who also allowed us plenty of our own space. A 25min walk down through Central Park to the bottom end of Cuba St. Very quiet location, and a bit over 10min walk to the Penthouse Cinema in Brooklyn. Highly recommended.

The Bushy Rest was an awesome little escape within the city! We loved the exterior exit to our room making it very accessible anytime so we didn’t feel like we were disturbing the upstairs. John and Geraldine were very helpful even giving us a couple rides to town. They also had …
