About Pauline Poi & Julie Chan
You are hosted by friendly and hospitable Pauline & Julie, originally from Malaysia but proud to be a Wellingtonian and have lived in Brooklyn for 30 years. Love travelling both locally and overseas and food are their passion. They will make your stay in Wellington an enjoyable one.
Pauline Poi & Julie Chan purchased this Studio in 1992
Why Pauline Poi & Julie Chan chose Brooklyn
Brooklyn is one of the coolest suburb of Wellington. The panoramic view is so captivating that we bought the land and built a home on it. We love the quiet neighbourhood , the reserve is just at our back door and the closeness to the city. Wellington is dubbed the "The coolest little capital in the world" by Lonely Planet. It merges big city culture with small town charm. It is celebrated as New Zealand’s arts, film, coffee, culinary, craft beer, events and political capital.
What makes this Studio unique
From the bay window, you can relax and enjoy the lavender bush and stunning view of the Wellington Harbour. Plenty of free on-street parking is available. The bus stop is just 7 minutes (500m) walk away and the buses to the city operate 7 days a week. A 25 minute walk to the city through the Central Park is invigorating. The Polhill Reserve and the wind turbine just at our back door. It is just 1 minute (68m) walk to the entrance. A less than 5 minutes’ drive to enjoy either eat-your-heart-out at the best eateries in town, a movie at the Penthouse Cinema, a game of tennis at the Renouf Golf Centre or for a game of out-of-this-world mini golf at Calucci Land, a unique Wellington landmark with remarkable artworks.

Nice view, a bit remote
Clean and compact place, nice views of harbour (distant). Not close to anything but bus stop close by. Ok if you have car.

Quiet location and attentive hosts
This property is very clean and quiet, conveniently located near unpaved walking trails in a nature reserve with great views of the city. Communication with hosts Julie and Pauline was excellent prior to arrival and during my stay. Well before I arrived, they kindly notified me that most restaurants and shops would be closed on the public holiday, and offered to do some shopping on my behalf. I appreciated the notice and accepted, and they picked up the items I requested. Julie and Pauline have a wealth of knowledge about the city--- everything from where to eat, where to shop, and where to walk--- you need only ask. Thank you Julie and Pauline for welcoming me to Wellington and for being such exceptional hosts!
Thank you Nathan for your heartwarming review. We have enjoyed hosting you. You were a great guest. Thank you for leaving the place clean and tidy. You are a pleasure to speak with and very polite.

Enjoy the great outdoors which is just steps away from the studio. The studio's closest neighbour is the George Denton Park and Polhill Reserve which has many walking tracks. One which leads to the Brooklyn Wind turbine which is a 1.45 km (approximately 30 minutes’ walk) hike. After a short walk up the wind turbine trail, you’ll already start to enjoy scenic views of Wellington City and Wellington suburbs. Just remember to stop and look behind you and to your right when walking up the track.
