Interaction with Guests:

We will get you settled in, after which it is self-drive. Your hosts live next door, so we're on hand to help with needs as they arise.

The Neighbourhood:

The walks in the Otari-Wilton's Bush reserve are spectacular - either 20 mins around the botanical collections or 2h along the skyline walkway.

We're right on the route of bus #14 into town (10-15 mins), and 100m from the route of bus # 13/22/23 to university (15 mins). Close enough to walk to downtown in 45 mins, or a short drive.

  • Very handy to town

    Very handy to town. Good off street parking for car. Nice to be up in the bush. Quiet area.

  • The location is central with a busstop 100m from the front door

    The location is central with a busstop 100m from the front door. The accommodation was superb, extremely comfortable and waking up to the sounds of the local birds was magnificent as we are great bird lovers and were able to identify some of the indigenous birds with our brother-in-laws' help (He is a local) Beds are comfy and there is a good supply of hot water. I would recommend this property highly, but not for younger children as the house is on 3 levels with plenty of steps.

  • Right next to beautiful reserve with lots of native birds

    Right next to beautiful reserve with lots of native birds. Had 7 tuis in the tree outside the window in the bedroom when we woke up. 2 min walk to bus stop which takes you anywhere you need to go (get the family $21 all day pass - great value). A great thing about the property is that the hand soap, shampoo etc. provided is all not tested on animals - we appreciated that as we won't buy anything else. Nice furnishings and kitchen. Thoroughly recommend this place - would definitely stay again.
