Welcome to New Zealand!
Large friendly and art filled house on hill overlooking Wellington harbour and South Coast. Piano, books, garden.
Private guest bedroom available with Sea-views, with bathroom just down the hall. We also have an ensuite room available. Just one or both bedrooms available at $86 each. 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 (website hidden), meals negotiable. Household is semi-vegetarian.
Look forward to meeting you soon!
Maintain house in existing state of moderate tidiness and cleanliness.
Fine house, very stylish and with a lovely host and great facilities. Easy transport from airport and access to city by public transport.
A great place to stay. Lovely room with exceptional views across Wellington and the airport. Good breakfast. As I arrived to a windy and chillier Wellington Sara ensured I had a warmed bed and room. I recommend you stay here
Sarah's home is beautiful...beautiful views of Wellington and not too far to the city on the bus. Sarah was very accommodating and lovely to talk to. Sarah recommended some great places where we could have dinner too! Definitely enjoyed our stay in Wellington being able to stay in her beautiful home! Thank you !
the house is just like on the pictures: large, wonderfully decorated and with a great view. you should be resistant to airport noises though. there a little shops and a bus station in about 5 min walk down the hill, we had a car and felt that it is quite useful to get around.
sarah was flexible with our arriving time and let us use the entire ground floor. thank you, sarah.
Sara is the kindest host you will find in Wellington ! She helped me with a lot of stuffs and gave me the bests advices I could have for my firsts days in NZ.
As soon as I arrived, I've been well received.
The room was perfect and very private. Also, the breakfasts are amazing !
Also, the house is beautiful and situate in a great location, very quiet, with a wonderful view ! It took me about 10 minutes by bus from the CBD. You could find anything you need for grocery etc at few minutes by walk.
Do not hesitate more. Just book your days at Sara's house !
We has a fabulous weeks stay with Sara. She was very accomodating and open to us using the kitchen and the main room through out the day. She also welcomed us to help ourselves to lettuce and herbs from the garden and we often used the kitchen to cook dinners. The view from every room was spectacular. Great stay, thanks Sara!

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. I have no children but my husband has a 22 yr old daughter. 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: coffee, wine, plane tickets, friends, movies, architecture magazines.
We enjoy meeting new people and having people around the house but we like to let people do their own thing.
