  • A little bit of time warp with a comfortable "batchy" feel

    A little bit of time warp with a comfortable "batchy" feel. Loved the panoramic views especially as the stormy weather played out below

    Loved our stay here! Warm and cozy with an excellent view over the harbour. An easy trip into the city but we loved exploring the Lyall Bay area.

  • Great property to stay for the holidays

    Great property to stay for the holidays. We were there in the middle of winter but lovely and warm with the heaters on. Typical NZ house with condensation in winter but windows are easily vented. Good location with amazing view. Not suitable if mobility is an issue though as up some steps on a narrow road. Would recommend and stay there again if in Wellington.

  • 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
