Garden studio close to CBD, beach, bush, Island Bay village (supermarket, cafes/bar, cinema, pharmacy), 2 min walk to bus and parking in driveway or on street.

The studio (5.6m x 2.35m) has a double bed, cupboards, desk, heater. It's 10m from the house, but you'll need to come in for the bathroom and kitchen (outside and downstairs). Must be OK with large, friendly dog.

Available by prior arrangement:
Spa pool (around family use)
2 road bikes (short-term/occasional)
EV car charging (as above)

The space
The garden is sheltered from both northerly and southerly winds, so it's nice even on blustery days.

Please note: There's only one bathroom (shower over bath). We'll work around guests as much as possible, but with 2 guests, a little waiting may be unavoidable around school and work routines.

I may or may not be around, and the same applies to my two teenagers (both lovely, though they often keep to themselves). You'll be able to get in regardless, and our dog Piper (black lab/pointer cross) will always be there to welcome you, so you'll definitely need to be OK with animals. She's pretty exuberant and loves cuddles, but just say 'Off' (in as gruff a voice as you can muster) if you don't want her to jump up. She also responds to 'Sit', 'Lie down', 'Roll over', 'Give', 'On your bed', etc.

Piper only speaks dog, but I speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese. I work at the national museum, Te Papa.

Guest access
The studio will be open for you, and you'll have a key to lock it when out (just lift the handle to do so - it's become a little sticky over winter). If we're not around, you'll still be able to access the main house to use the bathroom and kitchen.

Wellington, New Zealand

Island Bay is a quiet, friendly, relaxed neighbourhood with all amenities. It's nice and flat on the way to the sea, with hills on each side.
