  • Wow! What an incredible place! A stunning apartment perched on the top of a cliff above Lyall Bay. Sublime views and everything just so perfect. Well-stocked with everything you could want and more. Elizabeth and John made us feel so welcome. Definitely the best accommodation experience we have ever had!

    David2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth was a fantastic host. The accommodation was exactly as described and was absolutely beautiful! It had everything that you would need. It was immaculate, super comfortable, very stylish and has the most amazing views! My wife and I absolutely loved it and will definitely be visiting again.

    Ben2016-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • We were pleasantly surprised by our stay here. It was better than the photos! Our host Tiz, has created a private sanctuary that caters to all the senses. The views are outstanding from this comfortable, stylish, well catered and warm nest. You can work, play or just relax. The pantry was well stocked with quality goods like Vogel's bread, spreads, milk, butter and ground coffee. The quality of linen was also a joy. Tiz has 'decked out' this apartment as if it was for her. We were thrilled with our stay.

    Mary2016-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • A truly spectacular location and sweeping, breathtaking views to be enjoyed from a modern, designer abode or an outdoor hot tub. The hosts are kind and on hand if required.

    Brenton2016-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • The best experience I have ever had with Airbnb! What a modern and comfy apartment with stunning view. The bedding is of hight quality as well. I will definitely recommend it!

    Thomas2016-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this delightful air bnb - and Elizabeth was the perfect host

    Narelle2016-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks very much for a great stay - to me your 'apartment' was a wonderful mini-grand design home with a stunning view. It was a fantastic alternative to staying in the city and one that I would happily do again ... if it is available!

    Lincoln2016-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing space and experience! The design and construction of the apartment is simply incredible. Clever in every way with zero water space. We loved the contrast of materials, the textures and the finishes. And the (URL HIDDEN) is mesmerizing. Tiz and John are amazing hosts and the spaces they create could dawn the pages of any design magazine. Do not hesitate to choose this space for your Wellington stay. You will be elated you did!

    Tahseen2017-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal place for a quiet night's sleep and very convenient to The Pines, where we were attending a wedding. Terrific spot for a morning walk around the coast.

    Troy2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • elysia is an amazing host. great communication and the place was as the description. was put up in the middle apartment and had an amazing time. the views were to die for so id highly recommend booking this place

    Chris2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location on the shore with very easy transport to city. Simple accommodation but really cosy. We had a great time. Hosts incredibly halpful. Recommended.

    Bruce2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • The location of Elysias place was amazing with the sea just across the road from the flat. The place had most amenities you need even though the place was older than expected. Elysia was kind enough to provide us with extra blankets and a heater the next day upon request as it was chilly that night :)

    Ricky2017-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and my partner really liked the place, pictures from airbnb were a good reflection of the place and the Location was perfect if you're looking for a nice quiet place away from the cbd. Although the one suggestion would be a dining table and chairs so you could sit down to eat as opposed to a bean bag or bed. Otherwise, a great place to stay. Meg & James

    James2017-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • No table or chairs - a bean bag only. The microwave and the cooker was on the top shelf and hard to access. Their was a damp smell in the apartment - had to run the dehumidifier almost 24 hours as the tank needed emptying 3 times per day. On the plus side, great communication, easy check in, very clean, freshly painted, nicely styled, good shower & hot water.

    1980s Lockwood house. Great for small families and young children. The space is a bit small for 4 adults but could be discussed prior to booking. Views to the airport and Cook strait. Flat drive on. Bus stop directly to the city and railway via the zoo. Short drive from airport. Safe in earthquakes though quite noisy in a storm. Large windows let in natural light. Safe fencing and gates. Small garden. Log fire. Portacot, high chair, stroller, toys and books. Quiet area with private aspect.
    Open plan modern kitchen lounge. Living area carpeted. Kitchen tiled. Chapel ceilings giving a very spacious feel and sliding doors maximizing space as well. Very roomy main bedroom with a queen bed and a single bed. The second bedroom is small when the trundler bed is set up. Wardrobes and drawers cleared for guest use. Large conservatory, (just mind your head if you're tall). This is a comfortable, warm, well-maintained property set up as a holiday home.
    Nice neighborhood. Great views of the harbour and the airport from View Rd. Close to swimming beaches and Kilbirnie shopping centre which hss a Countdown and a Pak n Sav supermarket. There is the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre at Kilbirnie also which is great but you would still need a reasonable walk down and up a steep hill unless you have a car.
  • We had an amazing stay at Anita's place. It was so comfortable, in a great location. We really felt like we were on holiday. Highly recommend and will definitely stay again if we are in the area. Thank you so much!

    Stacey2017-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house was inviting and cosy for a wild and wet weekend at the beach. The log burner kept the house warm and dry, and the views were beautiful despite the weather. The place was fully stocked with everything you'd need, and was very pretty and well presented ( as well as spotlessly clean). Looking forward to going back in summer time!

    Milly2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay in Anita's home. It was very family friendly- toys, a pram & travel cot provided. The bus stop was outside the home and communication with Anita was fantastic.

    Esther 2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay in Wellington. Handy to the airport with awesome views. Anita responds were prompt and communications clear. I would consider staying there again on future trips to Wellington and would recommend to others.

    Stephen2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great home to rent and very well equipped. Anita responded quickly to our queries. Only problem was it creaked a bit more than we expected, specially when it was windy.

    Mikaela2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, just be careful of the tiny, winding streets. The house is very well set up, everything you need is there and more. Very clean. We highly recommend it.

    Haydn and Kate2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Anita was a great communicator and made us feel very welcome. The house was snug with views of Wellington's sweeping south coast. We had everything we could have needed all provided in this cosy Lockwood. Thankyou!

    Alister2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay here a lot. Public transport very close, short drive to the center, nice walks just by the house. The house was great (we enjoyed the typical wood noise), clean and fully equipped, very friendly host. Great with (and also without) children.

  • Elizabeth’s house is amazing! With a fabulous view from layabal beach, well equipped, with everything you need for your stay and a beautiful arquiteture! We stayed in four adults and two kids and fits perfect for us! The owners are very friendly and are always available. I highly recommend the house. It is good rent a car because Lyabal is far from the city town.

    Olivier2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the house. . The view was spectacular and the house was all we could hope for. Modern styled, with first class appliances, comfortable beds and the best showers. . The driveway was a challenge, but overcome in a short period of time. Thanx to our host Elizabeth for turning on the lights when our arrival was later than expected. It was certainly a welcome sight coming up the driveway.

    Tracey2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing Views, Amazing host. Quick and nice drive into the city. Not far from the airport. Highly recommended place to stay whether for business or pleasure.

    Paul2017-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful new home, spotlessly clean and tastefully furnished. Well appointed kitchen with plenty of equipment so we could live as we would at home. Amazing view over Lyall Bay and airport. The driveway was a bit challenging for my low slung sports car but was ok once we got used to it.

    Self contained studio for singles or couples in Island Bay on the south coast. The studio overlooks Island Bay shops, and is a 10 minute drive to the airport. Close to the beach with a regular bus service to the city. Nice views and beautiful sunsets and an outside area to sit and relax. The space has a warm, comfortable double bed and nice linen. There is a small bench oven, a Nespresso machine, TV with Netflix and free WiFi. Your hosts live upstairs and are happy to help in any way.
  • Great place to stay at for a few days and lovely hosts. It is small but good equipped and has everything you need for a few day stay. Perfect for us as we we're in between two places to stay and this was a perfect solution for a week.

    Lex2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic and friendly, a lovely stay in a cute cosy room. Just a mere stroll to beautiful island bay. Wonderful hosts who made me feel welcome and provided more than I'd need in terms of little extras. Great nights sleep and a powerful shower to wake up with! Could not have asked for more from these fantastic hosts.

    Adam2017-09-11T00:00:00Z

    Close to the city, overlooking the open sea. Double room & bed in sunny 3bedroom timber, Art Deco house from 1939, "sitting in the sky". Opens to dramatic views of Lyall Bay, Evans Bay and the Tasman Sea. Aviation devotees will have the perfect vantage point to observe planes landing and departing from one of the world's most difficult airport runways. Having breakfast while watching penguins does happen. :) This is real airbnb. Living with a local in an amazing area with no hotels.
    Silke loves to host guests who are genuinely interested in how we locals live in a typical kiwi house and to give these people the opportunity to live in a stunning area of NZ where you wouldn't be able to stay without airbnb. Long-term stays welcome. This place is not suited for travellers who are after a cheap hotel alternative. View over Wellingtons most active surf beach with plenty of fun activities, Lyall Bay. Some of Wellington's most popular cafes and restaurants are an easy walk away. We also have a SUP board and a surfboard for hire. Can arrange kite-surf lessons on request. This isn't just "a" place you can book. Silke is offering you to stay at what she calls home, so this is real airbnb. If you are after a cheap hotel alternative, this is not your place. If you are interested in how it is to live like a local and in NZ culture, this is for you. The flat is the upstairs part of a typical timber kiwi house from 1939 with beautiful Art Deco elements in the rooms. Timber is the reason why the house has had no damage from the November 2016 earthquake. You will probably find one of the best views you have ever seen, thanks to the house located on top of a hill (and luckily out of tsunami zone). As Wellington is the world's windiest city, it does get very windy. In winter, Wellington can also be rainy and humid. Silke can help you make your stay comfortable even though you do stay in a typical kiwi home. Please do ask for help if unsure. - It is normal that cooking and showers produce humidity, so please just open doors for five minutes to help it finds its way out, and the house will be perfectly dry. This is more effective than using the ventilators/fans.
    Alongside Wellington's "scenic route" around the bays. Walking distance to some of Wellington's most popular cafes: - Maranui Cafe - Queen Sally's Diamond Deli - The Spruce Goose Restaurant - Elements Cafe - The Time Cinema - Large marine reserve at the southern end of the bay offering spectacular snorkelling and shore diving. Dive the wreck of the F69! - Close proximity to Kite Surfing Hire/Instructor (can arrange lessons), Scuba rental/lessons, Surf rental/lessons, Miramar links Golf, - Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre - Red Rocks with great diving, seal watching, running, walking options - Large supermarkets and department stores close by in Lyall bay and in neighbouring Kilbirnie. - visit Carlucci Land or explore the CBD - Cityfitness in the bay
  • Silke was very welcoming and can speak French. The house is great and clean with beautiful landscape over the sea. We could take some food left from other travellers Good host if you're French and not good in English.

    Eric2015-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Silke is a great host and really well prepared for all guests. She offered us a full package of any information we are looking for. The best thing on the home is the incredible view over the bay and the airport.

    Patrick2016-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • "Beach house overlooking 3 seas" has all the comforts required for travelers. Clean, spacious, very good WiFi, variety of breakfast options and a great view of lyall Bay from the patio. Silke was a great host, was very responsive and provided great suggestions on places to eat and see in wellington. I highly recommend this place.

    Manish2017-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • What magnificent views! They were even more spectacular in person than what you see in the photos, an excellent experience to soak up the sights from her balcony. Silke, our host, was warm, welcoming and ever so helpful with local area knowledge and tips for the rest of our NZ holiday. The bedroom and bed was clean and comfortable, and the bathroom also clean and had everything you need. Oh and the fresh flowers throughout the home were a nice touch. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it! We hope to visit again on our next NZ holiday.

    Paul2016-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment a short drive from Wellington central and very close to the airport. Stunning views from the balcony with out a doubt a selling point! Silke was very hospitable, quick to respond and flexible for arrival, which made the whole trip hassle free and very enjoyable. Our first time using airbnb, I hope they're all as good as this one!

    David2017-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house with a great views, just as shown on pictures. The room was clean and comfortable, and well prepared for visitors. It even included warm slippers to keep our feet warm :-) Silke was very welcoming and easy going, a kind of host that makes you feel like at home. We will surely stay there again if you come back to wellington!

    Pawel2015-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Although our stay with Silke was very short, she was very warm and hospitable. We arrived after a long day of driving and she welcomed us with a big smile. Gave us lots of info about getting around the area and made us feel at home. The view was really stunning. Shame we client stay longer.

    Jenny2015-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Silke was great! She was always ready to answer our questions, made recommendations and helped us feel at home. The view is absolutely breathtaking, the house comfortable and our room was cozy. We even had fresh flowers in our room :) Silke knows how to be a wonderful host.

Once you are off duty, just sit on the couch and soak up the view! Enjoy this artist's retreat where you will be truly inspired by the stunning 180-degree view of the ocean, harbour and hills. Literally, count dolphins from your couch, admire the evening sky, check out the water sports activity of the day, survey the comings and goings in the harbour or do a bit of plane spotting. You will never ever tire of looking at this view - no wonder it is called View Road! Cook up a storm in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen and then savour the delights looking out to sea. In the morning lift your head off the pillow and enjoy your hot drink with views over the ocean all the way out to the horizon. The apartment itself is very bright, spacious and homely. A true home away from home. Keep toasty warm even on those chilly nights thanks to double glazing, insulation and heavy duty heaters. The deck overlooking the wave is a great spot for keeping tabs on what water sport is the flavour of the day. The location is fantastic. There is a bus stop outside the door which takes you straight into the centre of town, the train station and the Bluebridge ferry terminal. Easy as pie for commuters to the city. If you are catching a plane in the morning, there is no better place to be. Just jump in a cab and you are there in 5 minutes. Walk to Lyall Bay in under 10 minutes, your closest sandy beach and Wellington's surfing hub. Remember to drop into Maranui café, which is a true institution in Wellington - the perfect brunch spot. There are a few other great restaurants in walking distance. Aside from the many coastal walks outside your doorstep, there is also an array of wind-protected bush walks. You will love this quiet spot, which is sure to provide you with heaps of inspiration. Come and enjoy. The place comes with a guarantee that you will find it hard to leave!
    Houghton Bay is a very safe and quiet residential area with a real seaside feel to it. Plenty of cool and quirky cafés and restaurants (Spruce Goose, Diamond Deli, Maranui, Elements) in walking distance. Spectacular bush and coastal walks just outside the door.

  • The view from Brian's place was spectacular!! He lets us have early check in which was lovely and gave us good directions to the house from the ferry. There was a bus stop out the front going straight into town and is very close to the airport which was handy. Although the house was a bit cold as we arrived in the middle of windy Wellingtons weather. Brian was also nice enough to let us do some washing

    Lucy2016-07-13T00:00:00Z

    Our comfy 2 bedroom home, plus small nursery sleeps up to 4 adults and one infant. It's half way up a hill (it's Wellington!) with amazing views over Lyall Bay + The Cook Strait. Great spot for breakfast in the sun, midday barbecue, and endless playing at the beach. 10min drive/taxi to airport. 30min bus to town.
    Our home is on the hill looking over Lyall Bay - the Cook Strait and airport. We have two double rooms and a very small single room set up as a nursery. There is a separate lounge and fully equipped kitchen, with basics you can help yourself to. This space is ideal for two couples and an infant (2 Queen beds and 1 baby cot). If you have a porta cot you could add another infant in the downstairs bedroom. The house has central heating - ducted heat pumps with vents in three of the main living areas - kitchen/dining, upstairs bedroom and lounge. This makes it pretty cosy in winter! The downstairs room has a separate radiant heater (which is very effective!). We have a great outdoor garden that gets sunshine in the morning and afternoon with epic views over Lyall Bay, The Cook Strait (watch the ferries come and go) and the airport. We have a BBQ you are welcome to use too.
    There is so much to do and see around Lyall and in Wellington. Lyall bay has a beach and a handful of great cafes on the waterfront. A 5 min drive away is Kilbirnie (supermarkets) and town is 15-20 minutes by car or 30 by bus.
  • Everything went very smoothly and Julia and Jonny were excellent in communicating and accomodating our arrivals earlier than planned which was so helpful. They were very welcoming and everything and more than expected was provided. It is a lovely comfortable house in a surprisingly quiet location with beautiful views- warm and bright. We had a perfect weekend, thanks and were very appreciative of the lift into town too Jonny

    We would love to welcome you by the sea. We are 5 mins away from the airport so perfect for a quick trip. We are a couple that have travelled extensively and appreciate nice accommodation. We want you to love our place as much as we do. The best part about the airbnb is that you have your own space downstairs with bedroom, bathroom and separate living room. There is a free surfboard that you can use, lots of hikes around, quality cafés. You can get to the city centre in 13 minutes on the bus.
    There is a private room, a private bathroom with shower and another room with sea view that has been transformed in a lounge with a table, toaster, a fridge, a kettle, sandwich-press and whiteware. We provide games (chess, risk, jenga) and a bookcase full of books, in order to keep you entertained. There is no oven / cooktop available. The only shared area is the front entrance. We live upstairs.

  • Very comfortable space with SPECTACULAR views of Lyttle Bay! Andreea is an excellent host and provided plenty of options for breakfast in our own nook. The bedroom was comfortable and nicely appointed and we had our own bathroom. The house is directly across the street from the beach with biking and running paths along the water and provided a perfect atmosphere to finish our trip in Wellington. It is located very close to the airport which is what we were looking for. For the price, location, and amenities makes it the best value in Wellington!

    Eric2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Before we arrived Andreea and Richard got in contact with us and gave us useful information on the best and cheapest way to get to their place from the airport. Upon arrival the check in was super easy and everything was perfectly set up for us to be able to do our own thing without having to bother them. From a nice selection of breakfast food to detailed information about the car and WiFi password were all provided in a welcome note along with the house key. The room is beautifully decorated and the bed is very comfortable, you get your own bathroom and an extra room that serves as a kitchenette which is very convenient and has an amazing view of the ocean. The house is located across the street from the water in an area with privileged sights, probably one of the nicest in wellington. There are lots of walking tracks and lookouts in the surrounding hills and if you want to take it easy a walk by the beach and the sunset over the hills are a wonderful plan. All in all our stay was fantastic and we couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

    Our sunny house is perched on a hillside just above island bay, a short walk from the sea. The house is spacious, modern and warm - the perfect place to hunker down in Wellington. The bus goes regularly with the stop just outside so you can get to town quickly and easily. Peaceful, surrounded by native bush. More photos coming soon!
    This house is new, warm, and unique. We are artists and musicians so there are plenty of books and instruments around! The location gives you views over to the South Island. It is paradise.

    Warm, modern, sunny home, 5 minutes from the airport with all day sun. Off street parking and the house literally borders a reserve which has some of the best views in Wellington. Double glazed in the bedrooms and we have 4 heat pumps to keep you toasty or cool, fresh coffee, cable TV and everything you will need to make your stay a comfortable one.
    The house is on three different levels which will give families and groups some separation if required. The house is warm in winter and cool in summer thanks to double glazed bedroom windows and 4 heat pumps. Two of the bedrooms are on the main, ground floor with a sofa bed upstairs in the balconied, spacious lounge. The master bedroom is on the lower level with direct access to the deck and garden. There is a driveway with off street parking and a garage. Outside there is a bbq, dining area and a large deck with views of a park and a distant cook strait.
    We think the area is one of the best in Welly. You are right next to the beautiful South Coast. 1 minute from the best play park in Welly, two minutes from the surf, cafes and shops of Lyall bay, 5 minutes from the airport and 10-15 minutes from the city depending on traffic. As you exit our front door you can turn right and walk into a reserve which has some of the best views of Wellington, Cook Strait and South Island. The reserve drops you down into Princess Bay, Houghton Bay and if you fancy some seal spotting you can head to Red Rocks via Owhiro Bay. The Spruce Goose and Maranui Cafe are our closest local eateries - they both sport some of the best views and food in Welly.
  • Fantastic location, very close to the airport and the bays. This area is a 5 mins drive to some wonderful restaurants, and only a 25 mins drive to the city. It's a huge house, with quiet areas to sit in if there are a lot of you. Bright and airy, with a great deck off the master bedroom to relax with a glass of wine while listening to the native bird song of NZ.

    Danielle2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Super happy with our (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication was always quick and friendly and the welcome information was just right. Wonderfully clean, beautifully presented and spacious with everything we needed . The heat pumps were great to let us be in a comfortable temperature and we loved the beds. Great location near the airport with a wonderful walk to a lookout point just up the hill and a great children's playground just down the hill. Would highly recommend - we would stay here again.

    Captivating views over Wellington's rugged south coast. Morning sun. Enjoy sitting on the patio watching the ferries and kite surfers go by. Close proximity to some of the south coasts top walks and great cafes.
    Quiet, private modern flat. Double glazing. Double sliding doors onto patio, overlooking Lyall Bay. 12 minutes drive to CBD, 5 minutes drive to airport. There are around 40 steps down to flat - the real Wellington experience.
    Beautiful surrounds, sea, beach, rocks and many amazing bush walks - but still close to CBD. Some amazing places to eat and some of the best coffee Wellington has to offer.
  • Cat's property is lovely and has an amazing view. Communicating with Cat was super easy and the property is a short ride from both the city and the airport. It's quiet and has everything you need - including some lovely breakfast ingredients. The property was very clean. I was very silly and left my passport at the property and only discovered this when I was en route to Auckland. Cat dropped the passport off at a courier office and it made its way back to me thanks to her! I am very grateful. I highly recommend Cat's property to anyone who wants to stay in Wellington for a few days! Thank you Cat for letting us stay!

Also very friendly and chatty neighbours too :) Fantastic communication and worth every cent to stay there. Thank you Cat :-)

    Raylee2015-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • The experience of booking and staying with Cat was perfect; all very smooth, efficient and flexible. We were expecting great views from the photos and description, but even so we were pretty much blown away when we saw them! Love the way that the patio doors open right out across the living room and bedroom, onto the outside space, and connecting with the scenery. A very comfortable apartment, with lovely breakfast supplies and thoughtful finishing touches. Overall, a great base for a trip to Wellington.

    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!
    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.
    Our neighbourhood is very quiet and friendly.
  • 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

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.

They really went out of their way for us, with airport pick ups, city and ferry drop offs. We can't thank them enough. I feel like we made some really good friends and would be happy to reciprocate their generosity anytime. Thanks a million! Would recommend/10

    Cailin2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Enjoy the tranquility, warmth and fantastic views of our recently refurbished lower story 2-bedroom oasis. Great location with bus stops within 200m leading to the hospital, CBD, university, or train station. Airport, city centre, parks, beach, and cafes all within 10-15 minute drive. Huge master bedroom with ensuite and king bed, and queen bed in the second bedroom. Featuring double glazing throughout, two heat pumps, full insulation, new carpet, and new kitchen and bathrooms.
    The recently completely refurbished space is open, light and sunny. It has all you need to keep you warm in winter (2 heat pumps, new lush wool carpet, super insulated and double glazed), and the new outside deck has both sun and shade options for Wellington's variable weather! The huge master bedroom (with king bed) has its own ensuite. The second bedroom has a queen bed. There is a separate bathroom with second toilet and shower over bath. Both bathrooms are tiled with underfloor heating and an HRV ventilation system keeps the place dry and fresh.
    Close by is Island Bay and Lyall Bay with many cafes and restaurants to choose from, lovely beaches and parks and walking tracks are also nearby. The zoo is just over the hill and the house is very handy to the airport and hospital.
  • This is a lovely property, set in Southgate which is outside of central Wellington but still easily reached by a regular bus service (hourly outside of peak times) or car (preferable). There are shop and cafes and restaurants a few minutes drive away and some lovely locations in Island Bay to go to ! The apartment has excellent facilities, beautifully maintained and presented and was really comfortable and spacious. The deck is lovely and we used it a lot to sit and look at the gorgeous views. Really highly recommend this property and Kathryn has been the most amazing host.

  • A well proportioned, comfortable apartment with every appliance, amenity you need, no matter the length of stay. A 15/20 min cab ride from town and taxis and Uber found the location with ease. Just be prepared for a 15 min wait for them to get to you. The views from the house (and especially from the top of the street) are fantastic and provide an excellent perspective of the fantastic location.

    Double room with sea view in apartment next to Lyall bay. Lyall and Houghton bay's 10min walking distance. Bus stop to city outside door. Very close to airport.
  • Although Kate was not at home, she arranged everything pretty well.

  • The room is very nice with the sea view. If you enjoy walking you may want to take a walk to Lyall Bay.

  • I liked the view out the window but we forgot the surfboard. Big mistake!

    Welcome to our glorious sun-drenched perch looking out over the dramatic south coast of Wellington and out to the mountain ranges of the South Island.
    Only two years old, this house is soundly constructed to meet the most stringent engineering requirements. It is also beautifully appointed and wonderfully comfortable. With double glazing and radiator central heating throughout you'll always be warm, and there's a woodburner fire for that fireside ambience. Everything's modern and everything works well. With two bathrooms and 4 generously proportioned double bedrooms the house will easily accommodate 4 couples without getting in each others' faces. Note that during the Christmas period the house will come with two friendly, easy-care short-haired cats (Tonkinese) who will require feeding morning and night. We have significantly reduced the price to compensate for this.
    When you return home you'll be able to tell people you stayed on the famous Wellington South Coast, an area famed for its wild beauty and outstanding views that include sunsets over the Kaikoura mountains on the South Island. You won't be roughing it though: this is a friendly suburb on a ridge line that has access to supermarkets and restaurants in 3 nearby suburbs, each less than 5 minutes' drive away.
  • James's place was stunning. James offered to collect my guests from the airport, had drinks and nibbles on arrival and even thought of leaving them brekkie. Apart from the Lion's Cup match the highlight for my guests was the accommodation and hospitality. James has strong communiction skills which puts you at ease when booking online from Oz. All in all highly recommend.
