This sunny and beautifully restored 1906 colonial villa oozes character and is in an amazing central location in Mt Vic. You can walk home throughout the day to rest, or change before heading out in the evening. The villa is just a 2 minute walk to the waterfront, Oriental Bay beach, Te Papa museum, and the main entertainment and dining strip (Courtenay Place). The city is literally on your doorstep! Gorgeously decorated, with beautiful linen, magazines, wifi, and all the amenities you require.
