As this is a container home it is very different to the traditional Kiwi bach. It is deceptively spacious despite the fact that the core of the property is built around 3 vertically stacked containers, mainto it's interlocking outdoor spaces. It sleeps up to 8 people if the cinema room is used as a 4th bedroom.

The Wellington Container House is situated in Owhiro Bay, about 4km away from Wellington City (8-10 minutes drive away). A short 1km stroll will lead you to the stunning South Coast, the entrance to the City to Sea Walkway, Radome tracks and Red Rocks.

If The Wellington Container House doesn't suit we also own 3 other properties listed here on Bookabach (The Penthouse on Evans Bay and 2 apartments in Wellington City situated side by side Harbour View and Panorama View).

    What an amazingly unique place to stay. You thought of everything visitors could need and more. Loved the Lewis Road milk, Whittakers chocolate and wine upon arrival! Thank you for everything, we loved our stay.

  • Really unique property - something you would find on George Clarke's amazing...

    Really unique property - something you would find on George Clarke's amazing spaces. The attention to detail is awesome and loved reading a little history on the property. Had everything you could ever want from a bach and more and we will definitely be back again. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Wellington Region.

  • This is an awesome place to stay

    This is an awesome place to stay. If you are in Wellington give it a go. There are lots of things to do in the property itself so suitable for winter or summer. Very unique, tidy and very well decked out with all the modern toys you need
