The Space

2 night minimum booking applies.
This charming and luxurious house was renovated throughout in 2012. Each corner is unique. A large double bedroom has views to the ocean. The office is relaxing, modern with a touch of vintage. The living area with pot belly stove and french doors leading to the sheltered private deck with outside fire is full of warmth and imagination. The bathroom has a large bathtub perfect for relaxing away the chillier Wellington nights. Cafes, cinema, beaches and the rugged but beautiful south coast right on the door step. Just ten minute drive to Wellington central.

Guest Access

Guests are welcome to use everything in the house and in the cupboards. You are welcome to any veggies and herbs from the garden.

The Neighborhood

Island Bay is special for its laid back beach side parks and walks. The south coast has some of New Zealand best walking and mountain biking tracks. The sunsets and sunrise are some of the most spectacular we've found.

Getting around

Regular buses are available from the bottom of the hill. A taxi ride to the city will cost between $25 and $30.

Other Things to Note

The house is full of sculpture and art with an extensive library of art and yoga books.

  • We stayed at Amy's place for a week and loved it. The house is beautiful and fully equipped. The sea is 5 minutes walk and city centre 20 mins by bus or 15 by car, so real easy. Island bay is a lovely neighborhood and the house special. We didn't see Amy much but she was always ready to answer any question, so for us it was the perfect combination of privacy and utility. We would certainly come here again and recommend this house.

  • What a stunning home and we felt pretty privileged to share it for a short time. It had everything we needed and it's just in a fantastic location. We felt at home immediately, even with the pets!
    Amy was just fantastic and was quick to respond and I felt like I was dealing with a friend.
    Would highly recommend, even though I don't want the secret out for when we stay again! Thank you Amy and Max :-)

    Thanks Julie for those lovely words! It was a pleasure having you to stay. Hopefully you'll stay again one day! Amy

  • Our stay in Amy and Max's home at Island Bay was an absolute delight. The location was perfect with views to the ocean and the house was an eclectic mix of artworks, books and lamps. We were made to feel incredibly welcomed when we arrived and shown the run of the place before Amy and Max left. Immediately we felt at home and were able to completely relax and enjoy the ambiance of the place. We drank the Pinot that Amy had left for us at night whilst enjoying the warmth and glow of the fire. We went for long walks along the beach, read and had some great coffee and food at some of the local cafe's. Our only disappointment was that it couldn't have been for longer.
