  • Location was beautiful, with good parking and lovely gardens

    Location was beautiful, with good parking and lovely gardens. House was large and the antiques brought a fun charm and adventure to the stay. The beds were a little on the soft side for us but after a very long work day, we slept fine. Would stay again.

  • Madeleine was so lovely to take us in last minute

    Madeleine was so lovely to take us in last minute. We had road tripped from Auckland and our original accommodation fell through. It was so stressful but after hearing back from Madeleine on that same day put a smile back on my :) Thank you so much Madeleine. Your home is beautiful, clean and it had everything we needed. It was home away from home. Location was perfect and serene. You also made it easy to find our way around the house. Will definitely have to visit again. Have a blessed 2018 :)

  • This is a gem

    This is a gem. You may need to hire a car to get to and from this property, but that will be more than compensated for by the location and facilities of this home filled with the Netherlands! Even if you are visiting people down in Petone or further into Wellington it could be well worth the distance to enjoy the location
