Interaction with guests

I like the guest to have their privacy but also to feel free to interact if they would like to.

The neighborhood

Living so close to the city and being able to wander around the waterfront to get to whatever it is that you feel like doing gives you plenty of choices. I have had many a guest come back from a day out exploring wishing they had more time to stay and play .

Getting around

Due to the closeness to town you can easily get around on foot. Bus stop and the end of the street. Taxi ride is normally 5 minutes call away. Railway station is a 6-7 minute taxi ride. Ferry terminal maximum 10 minute ride. Airport is a 11-15 minute ride by car.

Other things to note

I am happy to discuss earlier or later requests re checkin/checkout, it is only not possible if I am doing a turnaround clean. Bags can be left at the main house if your flight arrives early and studio is not ready until check in time , also after check out bags can be stored .

This rental is in a perfect location just up the hill from the Oriental Parade. You can walk to cafes and restaurants down the hill or up to Mount Victoria's walking trails in just a few steps. The flat has a nice view of the city, is clean and comfortable, and run by a great hostess. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

We found this accommodation to be exactly what we were looking for. Place was clean, tidy and a short walk into the main part of town. Communication was easy. Definitely wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Absolutely wonderful studio in a great location. Cushla went above & beyond to make us feel welcome. The studio is so clean and tastefully decorated - even better than the photos show! A perfect, cosy retreat for us during a particularly wet few days in Welly! Highly recommend. Thank you Cush! Lisa & Matt
