About this listing
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!

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.
