A light, bright, stylish apartment with views over Wellington city and the harbour. A private space with a beautiful outlook, well equipped with everything you need. Access to the apartment is via an uphill pathway with 40 steps. My family and I live upstairs and can assist with suggestions of things to do in our beautiful City.

There is a very comfortable queen bed in the bedroom and a double sofabed in the living area. We have a portacot and highchair and children's toys/books if required.

The space

The living area of the apartment has a large window that looks out over the city and harbour. The apartment is fresh and inviting, with good heating (radiators) and quality linen. It has is fully equipped kitchen (oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and small fridge) and a washer/dryer. Cable TV and unlimited Wifi are included in the price.

Basic food supplies are provided - fresh fruit, cereal, milk, butter and jam, tea and coffee (beans, grinder and coffee plunger provided), sugar, oil, salt and pepper.

Access to the toilet is via the bedroom. There is a good shower and unlimited hotwater.

Guest access

The guests have access to the entire apartment and the garden space (steep slope) in front of the house.

Interaction with guests

My family and I live above the apartment and we are able to provide suggestions on things to do, places to eat and how to get around. I am occasionally away but I can almost always be contacted via phone, email, or text.

Other things to note

Access to the apartment is via an uphill slope with around 40 steps. The view makes the walk up worthwhile! But best to travel with smaller bags and if you have mobility issues then the access may present a challenge.

There is plenty of parking on the street. Parking is free overnight and from 6pm on Fridays until 10am on Mondays. Coupon parking applies between 8am and 6pm on weekdays. The first two hours are free. Coupons cost $7.50 per day and can be purchased from me or the Kelburn FourSquare (a 5 minute walk from the apartment).

The apartment was well appointed and beds very comfortable. Kate provided breakfast and tea and milk. Shops and restaurants are close by. The flat has fabulous views over Wellington. A very comfortable apartment.

This was our first visit to Wellington and we are so glad we decided to book with Kate. The apartment is self contained, very clean, warm and inviting. The view from the lounge window is stunning and we really enjoyed watching the sun rise and set from our vantage point. All the little touches - the fruit bowl, the welcome pack and top tips and the directions on where to park - really made this a memorable experience. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms/kitchen and general decor was perfect. A great start to our holiday and definitely a place we will recommend and come back to in the future. Many thanks kate! X

Kate gave us great directions and made it easy for us to get in the apartment on our arrival. She popped in soon after to say hello and to make sure we were comfortable. The place is absolutely beautiful, with great views over Wellington. Very clean, modern and well equipped. Lovely fluffy towels and big bed. I would just add that you do need to be reasonably fit as it is up a fairly steep slope , we left our big cases in the car luckily! But thoroughly recommend it as a place to explore Wellington from. Just sorry we were there for only one night on our way to South Island.

This was amazing, the views were superb. It was so warm, clean and had every gadget you could need in the kitchen. It was close to local shops and restaurants and a short walk down to the city. We took the cable car back up the hill.

Kate's flat is a comfortable, warm and cosy place with great views out across Kelburn and the Wellington hills. She is an excellent host, very helpful with suggestions and insights. She was fantastic in providing quick responses to our last minute request to stay and made us feel very welcome.
