The Villa Karaka Bay, is located on the sea front at Karaka Bay in Seatoun.

Featuring twin bay windows with sash panes and stained glass sky-lights, Villa Karaka Bay has been carefully restored to provide self-contained accommodation.

Guests have 2 bedrooms, King and King split, each with its own en-suite bathroom. A fully equipped kitchen enables guests to self cater.

  • The property was really great

    The property was really great. The only caution I would have is that the driveway is narrow and there are a flight of steep stairs to get to the entrance. However, I would stay at the property again.

    Great location right on the water front with lots of room to spread out. Bay windows and washing facilities made this a good place to use as a base to explore Wellington. Roads and nearby streets are narrow with cars parked on the streets so need to take care when driving.
