'Korora' (the Maori name for the little blue penguin that often nests on the beach opposite) is a single bedroom self-catering unit under our home. It is ideal for a couple or a single person.

It has its own entrance via its own courtyard.

Situated on Karaka Bay, in the Eastern suburbs of Wellington, 'Korora' has wonderful ever changing views north-east over Ward and Somes Islands to Petone and Eastbourne and the hills beyond.

We are 15 minutes from the CBD of Wellington and 6 minutes from the airport (yet we get no airport noise).

Seatoun, Miramar and Scorching Bay are walking distance away.

There are many local spectacular walking tracks.

Cycling around the Bays is a popular pastime.

This is a sea-side paradise with sea birds, the occasional glimpse of dolphins or even sometimes a pod of killer whales in the harbour. Little blue penguins on occasions can be seen swimming in the sea. Sometimes there is a seal sunning himself on the rocks.

Fishing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, and snorkelling for shell fish, are common local pastimes.

Karaka Bay is the heart of Peter Jackson's film empire. It is in this bay that many of his visiting film dignitaries like to stay. The film studios are only a few minutes away.

There is a bus at the front door that operates for the city commuter.

In Seatoun there is a ferry service to the City, to Eastbourne and to Somes Island.

Worser Bay sailing club is an easy walk down the road.

The Roxy Cinema in Miramar was recently rebuilt by several local film dignitaries in Art Deco style. In addition to its 2 cinemas it has a café and a bar.

The 'Weta Cave' houses a collection of film artefacts from the Lord of the Rings series of films.

Scorching Bay, just a few minutes away, is well known for its café and beach. In addition there are a variety of restaurants and cafes nearby in Seatoun and Miramar.

Supermarkets, chemists, medical centres, and fast food outlets are just minutes away.

    Beautiful location, watching the people go by on the road, the boat traffic in the harbor, close to the city but we felt like we were in a small community. The flat had everything we needed, it was comfortable and inviting. Would definitely stay here again
