Apartment | Wellington CBD | #35471
Originally owned by the Apostleship of the Sea, this lovely villa apartment housed weary sailors who spent their time recuperating and drinking whisky (we found all the bottles under the house during renovations!). Converted into two spacious apartments in the 1960's, it has since been renovated further to include all the modern comforts, including radiator heating keeping the space incredibly warm.
The apartment is beautifully furnished, with two spacious double bedrooms and plenty of natural light. The Master Bedroom has a walk in wardrobe. The apartment itself is in a fabulous location, down a quiet street on the city edge and yet within easy proximity to all of the city highlights. Direct access straight down to the waterfront is through a pathway across the road from the house.
Within two minutes walk you will find:
- Courtenay Place (nightlife, eclectic cafes, bars and shops)
- Oriental Bay (restaurants, cafes, playground, swimming beach)
- Wellington waterfront (two playgrounds, parks, cafes and the popular Sunday market)
- the Embassy Theatre (famous cinema at the end of our street where the Lord of the Rings premieres were held)
- Te Papa Museum
- Bats theatre (quirky playhouse with tickets from $14)
- New World Supermarket
- popular eateries at the end of our street
The main shopping strip, Willis Street and Lambton Quay, begins a fifteen minute walk away through Courtenay Place, with Parliament about twenty minutes away when walking around the waterfront.
The vibrant Cuba Street is only ten minutes walk away, and makes a brilliant destination for shopping, cafes, and live music in the evenings.
A main bus stop is just a few minutes walk away, and all buses coming past head straight through town. The Railway Station is also about 30 minutes walk around the waterfront, or $2 in one of the frequent buses that depart just minutes from the apartment.

The apartment is centrally located but is quiet and warm. It has been thoughtfully decorated and equipped so it feels like a home away from home. It is a lovely place to stay as a couple or family. I can't possibly say enough to do it justice in this review, just don't look any further, go ahead and book it.
Absolutely fantastic!! Brilliant location, immaculate, warm property that has been beautifully renovated with everything we could have wanted for our stay. Will definitely recommend and come back!! Thank you!!
