About this listing

The space

Welcome to New Zealand!

Large friendly and art filled house on hill overlooking Wellington harbour and South Coast. Piano, books, garden.

Choice of two private guest bedrooms available, both with sea-views and own bathrooms. One bedroom has an ensuite and the other a separate bathroom with tub. Take just one bedroom or both bedrooms available. Negotiation for longer term depending on how many guests.
There is also a home theatre entertainment available for your use.

We are located 5 minutes to airport and just an 8 minute drive to inner city. Bus-stop is 7 minute walk with buses every 10 minutes. Parking right outside front door.

Hosts are hospitable and welcoming but both working so allow guests to do their own thing. Unpredictable work hours with film/theatre directing and architectural design (working from home).

House is close to bus, beach, cafes, pools, zoo, nice walks. Theres a rather interactive cat but no children. Very relaxed house - can't think of any house rules - except smoking, which should be done outside. Tea, coffee, continental breakfast provided. Cooking, meals negotiable. Household is semi-vegetarian. Not suitable for children unfortunately.
Look forward to meeting you soon!

Sara and Danny are fantastic hosts. They were very generous and friendly. They offered great hospitality and provided breakfast for us each morning. Their home is modern and stylish. We stayed in the upstairs room which is super cozy and has its own bathroom. We had full access to the kitchen and felt right at home. Bus stop, shops and supermarket are within walking distance. The house is on a steep hill but walking up is quite effortless if you’re not in a hurry. Overall a great experience. Thanks for everything!

We were in Wellington for the Lions match so there was huge pressure on accomodation - which in the commercial sector was subject to obscene price inflation . Sara however did not give in to that temptation for which we were very appreciative. Her home is magnificent with fabulous views . The location is convenient to the city and well served with regular buses. She and Danny were very welcoming and practical with local advice and generous with kitchen goodies. We were particularly taken with the decor,

I was warmly welcomed into Sara's home and instantly felt a part of the ecosystem. A very relaxed and fun environment. The house is situated on the hill overlooking a magnificent view. It's modern, extremely well kept and full of art. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Sara's place and would definitely like to stay again sometime. Cheers Sara, Danny and Juno cat! :)

Loved the artsy open house on steep hill with fabulous wide-open window and deck views over Kilbirnie with Evans and Lyall Bays nearby, and with airport near, but comfortably in the distance. Easy car access to Miramar and Island Bay cafes and cinema, CBD Wellington 10-15 minute drive or bus ride away. Sara and Danny are fun, charming people who each have lots of creative endeavors underway but had plenty of time to chat and look after us. We look forward to our next stay.

Sara User ProfileSara is a superhost.

I am an Architectural Designer working from home. My first career was a TV director and producer where I met my husband who is a drama director and actor. We live in Wellington but like to travel a lot. Our interests seem to be architecture, art, theatre, films, global politics and economics, travel. Our style of travelling ranges from a comfortable weekend away in a nice hotel to back-packing around Eastern Europe.
5 Things I couldn't live without: friends and family, books, coffee, wine, plane tickets, movies, architecture magazines.
We enjoy meeting new people and having people around the house but we like to let people do their own thing.
