About this listing
A light and modern apartment in Mount Victoria with a double bedroom and shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. It is a short distance from the Airport and well serviced by public transport. A warm welcome is offered by Maria and Mike and their large, friendly dog, Scruff.

Wellington is a fantastic city with all the elements required to make a great city - compact and naturally scenic, excellent shopping, an abundance of culture, cafes and restaurants all within very close proximity and beautiful bush walks nearby.
Mount Victoria itself is one of Wellington's most sought after suburbs. It is home to Government House - the residence of New Zealand's Governor General. For cricket enthusiasts, we are minutes away from the Basin Reserve and next door, but one, is an awe inspiring Greek Orthodox Cathedral with beautiful iconostasis.
As one of the world's most compact capital cities we are minutes walk from all four quarters of Wellington. Close by (but not so close to be distracting) are Courtney Place, Cuba Street, Willis Street and Lambton Quay offering the best in downtown shopping and entertainment. Lambton Quay offers up-market shopping; Willis Street is home to top local and national designers; Cuba Street offers the best in funky/alternative urban shopping, while Courtney Place is the heart of the restaurant and bar scene as well as theatres and cinemas.
We are also only a short stroll away from the Beach. Oriental Bay – Wellington’s favorite beach and waterfront walk. Cafes, restaurants, and bars sit side by side. It is one of the best spots in the capital to catch the last of the sun’s rays in the evening, where you can join the picnickers with their fish ‘n chips and a glass of wine.
On Sunday mornings you can pop down the road to the Harbourside Market, a vibrant open-air Sunday shopping venue beside Te Papa, New Zealand's National Museum . Here you can get all of the finest coffee, cheeses, olives, condiments, deli meats, fresh fish, confectionery, an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, tofu, organic produce and delicious hot foods.
No Smoking in the Apartment building
The house is very clean and close to the center of the city and to a wonderful park. Mark and Maria are very friendly and they gave us good tips for our weekend. We had a fantastic experience.
Maria and Mike has made my first time airbnb experience wonderful. They are nice and kind and the room was lovely, location is great and you can go everywhere from here. Will miss the lovely scruff(the super friendly dog) and the time spend with them.
Hi Maria. Thank you very much.
We enjoyed at your place and love Wellington. Even last day we had a bad weather but we looked around Te papa musium, art gallery and the city. Thank you for your lovely brackfast for us and say thanks to Mike. Room is big enough to stay 2 people and very clean.
See you again!
This house close to the city and oriental beach and coutney street.
I strongly recommend to traveler this apartment.
I had a wonderful stay with Maria and Mike (and Scruff!) in Wellington. Their home is warm and welcoming, and you can have precisely as much privacy or interaction with them as you please. I highly recommend the interaction, though, as they are such lovely, interesting people. The room is spacious, the bed comfortable, the shower hot: not sure what more you can ask for. Fantastic location, too: a maximum fifteen minute walk to most key locations within Wellington, and right at the foot of Mount Victoria if you fancy a hike to the top. Can't wait to stay again.
Maria was away during my visit, but I greatly enjoyed my stay with Mike, who was a warm, welcoming, helpful and interesting host. Would happily stay again.
It was lovely to meet Maria, Mike and Scruff the dog! It was our first Airbnb experience and we were very impressed, they were fantastic, couldn't of asked for better hosts! They provided an excellent breakfast which was a great start to each day. Very convenient location near Cuba St/City centre attractions. Thank you for making us feel so at home! We would love to stay again :D
Very friendly hosts, sat and chatted with us when we first arrived. Also adorably friendly dog, Scruff got plenty of pets. Big and well trained, he's a sweetheart. The apartment was easy to find and is only a 10/15 min walk away from Courtenay Place so amazingly convenient to access. The room is lovely and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was also a pleasure. The security of the building is nice - an access code to get in and a key to the individual apartments. A great stay with great folks - highly recommend for any person or couple looking to explore Wellington.
