  • Location is fantastic, we did not bother with a car

    Location is fantastic, we did not bother with a car. Flew in and walked, used the harbour ferry service, buses almost at the door. The property is an older house, good sized living areas to relax in; with the most beautiful view of the harbour and city. Day and evening it was a joy to open up the french doors out onto the deck and drink in the view. Good facilities in respect of the kitchen if you prefer to eat in. We enjoyed the novelty of the small cable car. No lugging bags up stairs!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Oriental Bay Retreat

    We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Oriental Bay Retreat. The view from the house over the harbour is stunning, great to watch even in the bad weather we experienced during our stay. Lovely to watch the cruise ships come in and other harbour activity. The location is perfect for walking into the city, Te Papa and the many other galleries and activities available. The house is very well appointed and comfortable. We would love to stay again. Thank you!

  • The house was great

    The house was great. I went with 2 friends and we really enjoyed the house - the view of Oriental Bay is beautiful both day and night. We really liked the ease of access to downtown Wellington and the airport. On returning to Wellington would hope to stay again.
