A large room with queen size bed, wardrobe, desk and computer. The room is in a very comfortable and tidy townhouse – a short 30 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride into the city (Cuba St or Courtney place). Open plan kitchen and lounge. Easy on street parking.

The space

This room is perfect if you are traveling alone, or as a couple. Beautiful morning sun, wall mounted tv with Chrome Cast, desk with Apple iMac computer. You'll enjoy being able to stretch out, unpack into the large double wardrobe, and plan your time in wellington.

Guest access

I will provide a set of keys upon arrival and you can come and go as you wish.
You'll have free unlimited access to the wifi from your personal devices and the computer provided. There are laundry facilities with dryer, with washing powder provided.
You can have full use of the kitchen and there is usually beer in the fridge. You're welcome to try some of my home brew. Tea and coffee is always stocked up and you're welcome to help yourself.
The lounge is comfortable. Enough seating for four people, TV with Chrome Cast, small dining table and chairs, playstation and a projector with apple tv and netflix.

Interaction with guests

I like meeting new people, so if you want to share a meal or a beer, I'm keen.
If you just want to spend time in your own space, that's fine too. I can give you tips and information on all the best parts of Wellington. May be available for airport pick-ups and drop-offs depending on my schedule.

Other things to note

If the weather turns bad I have a collection of movies, tv shows and gaming consoles you're welcome use.
You'll find bread, noodles, rice, fruit and more in the kitchen. Help yourself if you're hungry.

Very comfy bed with a tv and computer in your room, good Wifi connection. Only a 1/2 hour walk into Wellington and it's mostly all down hill. Only one negative was the public transport, last bus back to Vogletown was just after 7pm from Wellington and none at all at the weekend. Chester and Sarah were very nice and friendly people.

I really enjoyed my 6 weeks in Wellington, and a lot of that was due to staying at Chester's place! It's exactly as advertised and as others have reviewed it- comfortable, clean, well located and packed with useful things when travelling such as washer/dryer and computer access. Chester and Sarah have made me feel really welcome throughout my stay, and I've enjoyed being able to sit on the sofa and relax in front of the telly after busy shifts. Thanks Chester!

I had a great time staying with Chester, he's a great host, makes for great conversation and super friendly and helpful. When I arrived there was a a nice selection of tea and coffee, as well as a small hamper of dried goods which went down a treat. I liked the location because it's not in the midst of the hustle and bustle of town but you can easily get there. Chester also helped to drop me off at the ferry terminal for my day trip to picton (recommend you do it!), also helped to drop me to the airport when the bus wasn't working. Oh and the bed was super comfy, he provided a heater for extra warmth. I really enjoyed having the apple computer in my room to use to do some bits and bobs which is a luxury in the airbnb world and also had a TV!

We had a wonderful stay at Chester's home. Chester is clearly a well experienced Airbnb host. He communicated well before we arrived and we received a warm welcome. Chester's home is spotlessly clean, with a comfortable, large bed. He offered us a 'welcome' basket of food 'essentials', along with breakfast. Chester's home is in a safe area relatively close to local amenities and a good base to explore the city. Chester was really interesting to spend time with and was able to offer us the best insight into New Zealand's history we had received. Thank you Chester for a lovely stay. We hope we meet again.

Chester was there to greet me when I arrived at his home. He immediately made me feel at ease with his pleasant personality and the introduction to my room, which was very nice and comfortable. He was extremely patient and informative on the use of the very nice computer in my room which I found very useful thoughout my stay. He kindly took me in his car on several occasions to do some shopping. Chester has an excellent knowledge of the city and history of his country which I found interesting and useful helping to make my stay in Wellington more enjoyable. The views from the house are very nice with a tranquil atmosphere to boot. The public transport system in Wellington is good value and well organised. Chester is a perfect gentleman and an excellent host. I would certainly like to stay at his home again should I make a return visit to Wellington. The time I spent there will always be a very pleasant memorable couple of weeks. Well done Chester. A big thank you. Francis.

Very friendly welcome, particularly given the awkward time of pur arrival. Kindly offered to drive us to the ferry terminal, which is much appreciated. A good range of food and drink was available for us, and everything was clean and well presented. This was a fantastic start to our trip, thanks a lot.
