The huge house is a wonderful place to spend more than one night! Everything was very clean, the staff very extremely friendly and helpful and the lounge has cozy sofas. A free breakfast with eggs, fruit, toast and cereals is included. As well as a shuttle to the ferry. And if it’s not too windy you can enjoy the sun outside in the backyard. All awesome! Can highly recommend this place!

The place is so clean, the staff are amazing, the kitchen is great and well organized. It made a great stay in Welly that much better.


Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, sits near the North Island’s southernmost point on the Cook Strait. A compact city, it encompasses a waterfront promenade, sandy beaches, a working harbour and colourful timber houses on surrounding hills. From Lambton Quay, the iconic red Wellington Cable Car heads to the Wellington Botanic Gardens. Strong winds through the Cook Strait give it the nickname "Windy Wellington." On the waterfront, the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (commonly shortened to Te Papa) is the national centre focusing on the country’s natural history, cultures and art. From the city centre, a promenade lined with restaurants, parkland and heritage buildings leads to Oriental Bay. The Mt. Victoria Lookout has panoramic views of the city and harbour. Also reached by the Wellington Cable Car is the Carter Observatory, which houses the Space Place planetarium. A national arts hub, the city is home to the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (in the Michael Fowler Centre) and the Royal New Zealand Ballet (in St James Theatre).
