Please Enquire first rather than Book Now if you want to think about staying longer than the minimum 3 days - then we can work through the tariff options to suit.

If you Enquire, I can keep you top of the list of booking requests until we have reached an agreement. I'm not looking for 100% occupancy.

# spacious character wooden Wadestown house

# a family home - or a pad for a group city break

# walk, bus, taxi to town - handy for stadium

# Burger Wisconsin, fish & chips, curry and Chinese takeaways and bus at the bottom of the sloping street. Supermarkets close drive away

# Walking tracks and off-road cycling on the door-step. The best walk to town goes through bush, past the Prime Minister's house, through the Botanical Gardens and down the Cable Car (with a craft beer and gourmet food in Thorndon Heritage area on the way?) - 1-2 hours

# Glorious sunsets while you eat out on the deck - or a romantic wood fire inside...

Parking is on-road, with a walk down to house. Bed layout configured to suit after booking. I live next door. No TV, but Sky dish and connecting cable if you bring your own. Note: Wadestown is a hilly suburb.

No extra cost for cleaning or linen if house left as found (beds, used linen and towels can just be left for me to sort out)

    Lovely spot - great bush views, lots of bird life, and very liveable layout. The house was well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay.

  • A comfortable villa close to the City and motorways

    A comfortable villa close to the City and motorways. There was abundant bird-life in the garden, including tui and kaka. The fire does need to be on to warm the house. Do not park outside the neighbouring property at 70 Cecil Road, as they will leave you a polite note. Park above the garage at 70 Cecil Road.

  • Very nice house with stunning views

    Very nice house with stunning views. Large rooms, all very comfortable. Cute fire place that warms up the lounge nicely. Well equiped kitchen. Beautiful deck. We had a little trouble parking (no parking space so we parked on the curb of the road) and a little toilet clog problem that was resolved very quickly. We recommend.

  • Beautiful villa in a very quiet area surrounded by birds

    Beautiful villa in a very quiet area surrounded by birds. Parking is tricky and the house a bit cold in the mornings: difficult to heat up with the heaters provided but the wood burner is working fine.
