Owhiro Bay is host to beautiful beaches and walks. The fur seal sighting walk to Red Rocks starts less than 2km from the house (Seals present May to October). The famous City to Sea Walkway also runs nearby (download the new Welly Walks app available now on iTunes!).
Houghton and Lyall Bay for great surfing including surf hire shops is also 2km from the house.
Island Bay is 2km away, and boasts a number of shops, including the nearest supermarket New World. There are cafes, fish and chip shops, art galleries, and small convenience stores aplenty in Island Bay, as well as Island Bay Marine Education Centre.
Just a short walk up from the house is Carlucci Land, a very different Mini Golf experience and industrial sculpture fantasy land, well worth a visit.
Zealandia, Wellington's must-see eco-attraction and restoration project is close by and home to NZ's rarest birds and reptiles including the little spotted kiwi.
Brooklyn Village is just 3km away up Happy Valley Rd and boasts the fantastic Brooklyn Deli (for fresh bread, coffee and brunch), the Salty Pidgin bar and restaurant, Caribe Cafe (coffee and jerk chicken wraps), Jo's Pies (coffee and proper pies). Brooklyn also boasts the art deco Penthouse Cinema & Cafe plus two local convenience stores, takeaways (Burger Wisconsin) and a chemist.
Although you may prefer to just stay at the house, of course there are plenty of other things to do around Wellington! A must is to visit Te Papa museum and Weta Cave in Miramar, and the many independent galleries and bookstores. If there is anything that you might be interested in let us know and we'll be more than happy to help you with your travel and activity preparations.
If you would like to take public transport, the bus leaves from just outside the house into Wellington City via Brooklyn or across the road towards Island Bay and costs $4.50 per trip, but less with Wellington's Snapper travel card.
