  • Great location

    Great location. Very typical older style Wellington Hill side home. Be mindful of the stairs to access the property but you expect this in Wellington

    Found the access of the property fine as someone who has lived in Wellington before as most houses are built on the side of a hill. Great outlook over looking the airport, Lyall Bay and Cook Strait. Lots of good food options close by worth checking out. Kid friendly space with game consoles and Netflix. Would happily stay again.
