This quality, renovated holiday house with sea views is a perfect retreat. So close to Wellington, only 5 minutes drive but enjoying peace and tranquility just outside the city.

Ultra fast fibre internet is unlimited.

Affordable quality accommodation with flat rates. Large windows lead out onto a deck where you can enjoy the changing moods of the sea and sky while sitting in the outdoor furniture.

Two of the three bedrooms have queen beds, the other has a bunk set and single. A bed settee in the lounge also. Three couples would be most comfortable in Onslow Retreat.

HRV ventilation system has been recently added for great air quality. A Heat Pump in the lounge heats the area well in winter. There is also movable column heater also and econo heaters in each bedroom.

The modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need. Dishwasher helps with washing up

Car pad just beneath the house for ease of access. There is a quiet tenant in the flat beneath.

Catch the bus up Onslow Rd to the Khandallah shops which include a supermarket, library, cafes, etc. Catch the bus just outside and travel to the CBD within in just a few minutes, very handy.

Special rates for long term stays. Stay for a week and the rate is $1000. Stay more than four weeks and the rate goes down to $880 per week. with a Tenancy Agreement and refundable bond which acts as the deposit to secure the stay as well ==One night only is $300.=== Two night minimum is $200 per night.

As a special note, the driveway just off the road is a bit bumpy caused through a neighbours faulty drain. The council should be fixing this soon but just to let you know that part is unsealed. Once you get onto our driveway it is completely sealed and easy to traverse.

If this house is not available please see my other listings on Bookabach in nearby Tawa, a couple of four bedroom houses that have reasonable rates for short or long term stays.

Special conditions: There is a quiet tenant below in a one bedroom flat. Please respect her privacy by not walking on her balcony or making excessive noise such as running or jumping. Please don't throw things over the upstairs balcony. Please dont vacuum after 10pm or before 8am.

    Lovely property with gorgeous views. Driveway was a little tricky for our large car but the info regarding the parking area just next door was appreciated.
