A choice of three unique spaces for singles or couples. Seaside location in ever more popular Lyall Bay close to all amenities including 5 minute drive to airport.

The Space

Come and stay at Waitaha Bay in a funky 1930's home with all the mod cons including cable television and wireless broadband internet, across the road from the beach and just minutes from some of the best surfing and swimming beaches on Wellington's spectacular and beautiful south coast.

The house has unrestricted views out to Wellington Heads, the harbour entrance, overlooked by the spectacular Orongorongo ranges which sweep down to Cape Palliser at the southern tip of the North Island before taking in the ever-changing hues of the Cook Strait beyond.

With the bus stop just around the corner, it is only a 20 minute bus ride to central Wellington or 10-15 minutes by car. Some of Wellington's most popular cafe's and restaurants are an easy walk away, or explore further afield by mountain bike. We also have a sea kayak if you fancy a paddle in the bay.

You will stay in the guest room, a unique recently built private addition to the house. This comfortable and cosy space opens onto a private, native plant-themed courtyard with outdoor bath.

Your bedroom also has native bush views, overlooking terraced gardens, a protected and serene spot, alive with the sounds of native birds, especially in spring and summer. Also a nice spot sling a hammock and enjoy the surrounds, or alternatively watch the world go by from the two-tiered deck overlooking the bay at the front of the house.

We also have a double pull out sofa in the sea facing sitting room as per the feature photograph. It is a comfortable space with the melodic sound and views of the ocean to wake up to.

The inside bathroom includes the washing machine and dryer

  • My stay at Sean's home was absolutely lovely!
    The perfect location to relax and very handy to many attractions beautiful Wellies has to offer.
    Sean and his family were very welcoming and a pleasure to meet. I totally recommend this home and family to all!

  • I had such a wonderful time at Sean's rustic beach house! The bus was only a few minutes from his door, so I was able to do all the things I had planned in the city, while also having a nice break from all the activity. Sean is an amazing host, so kind and accommodating. Thanks again!!

  • Sean is very friendly and welcoming host. Even the fact he is a smoking person was not disturbing for us (we're non-smokers) - where was no tobacco smell on our room. We enjoyed our stay in his cosy and artistic house (you may say it's rustic as well). Thanks Sean!

  • Dean was a very kind host. We really did enjoy our stay at Lyall Bay. It was the perfect spot to relax a bit and explore Wellington during our kiwi experience. Our daughter even got some cooked pairs for breakfast.

  • 2 nights at Sean's in Lyall Bay was exactly what I needed! Coffee on the porch in full presence of the ocean, easy walk to tide pools and sandy beach, quick walk to bus into the Wonderful city of Wellington! Sean was so kind, welcoming, generous, and entertaining! He even cooked up special gluten-free abalone fritters for this "difficult guest". Huge bang for the buck! I was bummed that it was really too chilly (for me) for the outdoor shower/tub. That was my only disappointment.

  • We throughly enjoyed our stay at Sean's beach house in Lyall Bay and have already recommended to several people!

    Sean was an exceptional host who took care to help us about town, shout us a beverage on arrival and engage in great conversation during our stay.

    All in all I think our stay in Wellington was enriched by Sean's company and his authentic beach pad - I particularly loved the outdoor private bathroom! Lyall Bay is a great area to be amongst and we hope to return again.
