Apartment | Wellington CBD | #35471
2017 Bach of the Year shortlist!
Originally owned by the Apostleship of the Sea, this stunning colonial villa housed weary sailors who spent their time recuperating (much whiskey was drunk in this house!). Newly restored to a very high standard, this beautiful villa is luxuriously decorated, with gorgeous linens, comfortable beds, a beautiful bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. The apartment is a sun trap during the summer, and the radiator heating provides a cosy winter retreat.
The villa is in an amazing central location if you want to walk home throughout the day to rest, or to change before heading out for the evening. It is hard to believe this quiet suburban street is in the middle of town! Better yet, the picturesque Oriental Bay beach and Wellington waterfront are both just a minutes walk from your door.
Within TWO minutes walk:
- MAIN ENTERTAINMENT STRIP: Courtenay Place nightlife, bars, cafes, restaurants (four of the most popular eateries and bars in Wellington are at the end of our street - great food, great people watching!)
- THE WATERFRONT (walks, buskers, bars, pubs, cafes and the popular Sunday market)
- ORIENTAL BAY BEACH (swimming and cafes)
- The famous EMBASSY THEATRE (cinema)
- BATS THEATRE (popular for live plays)
- TE PAPA National Museum
- BUSH WALKS around the town belt
- New World supermarket
- one of the main bus stops in the city (although you are unlikely to need public transport).
The beautiful fully tiled bathroom and large steel bath tub come complete with hair and body products, there is also one hairdryer in each room. There is a separate laundry with a washer and dryer, including laundry powders.

Quiet, clean, gorgeous cottage in excellent location close to cafes & walks round the bay. Lovely vibe to this house, nice & warm, comfy spots to sit & read, easy access to the city, loads to see & do in immediate area.
We had a wonderful long weekend in her townhouse with some friends. It was the perfect retreat and location to the city. We could easily walk into town, Oriental Parade, or just to the bar across the road, and return to the toasty warm apartment. We also loved the thoughtful touches, like providing some beer and wine for purchase, and complimentary basics. We'll be recommending Emily's place to all our visitors!
