Bach or holiday home | Wellington CBD | #31482
You'll find this cosy cottage the to be the perfect pad to explore Wellington. Park your car and walk the 90 seconds to the Embassy theatre and Courtnay Place nightlife district or just 7 minutes to Te Papa museum.
The cottage is warm (thanks to the heat pump) and cosy. The bathroom and kitchen won't be in any design magazines but they are functional and clean. The main beds have electric blankets and there is free wifi to keep up with life on-line. This has now been upgraded to fibre.
This is a quiet retreat down a side street so does not have the noise associated with inner city apartments. And it has a sheltered porch and lawn for outdoor relaxing. It is a single story property and made from wood so you'll feel (and be) safe in the unlikely event of a shake.
We have just had it professionally cleaned including the carpets to give it a summer freshen up. Plus the shower pressure has been fixed.

The location is awesome. However, while the owner did clean the rugs, there continued to be a strong pet urine smell throughout the house (especially in the living room), my pillowcase was not clean, the house was not clean (I washed down walls where dogs had obviously shaken after a rain) and there were only two coffee mugs for 7 people. In addition, the internet was weak in the back of the house and the breaker tripped - the electrical wiring looks like a fire hazard. I wouldn't stay again.
House looked and felt cute/comfortable but smelt very strongly of pet urine. To the point where clothes had been left on the ground and had started smelling of urine also. Was also not given any check in details (password to wifi/utility details etc). We ended up only staying 1 out of 2 nights - were promised 50% refund as we had to go back to our hotel we’d stayed in previously. No refund or comms from Richard to date. Disappointing to say the least.
Great location, but as per previous feedback the strong pet smell that greeted us when we first open the door was not expected. We opened all the doors and windows as departing occupiers suggested. This was not what we would of expected, sorry.
