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.
Lovely home bnb which was a perfect stopover location. Handy to the airport and to the city. Easy to get to the shops for groceries.
I stayed at Sara's for 3 nights. Just as the pictures show, the house is stylish, spacious, full of character, and beautifully decorated. And the views of the city from those big windows, wow! I stayed in the downstairs bedroom and the bathroom (which is not connected but very close to the room). The bathroom is beautiful and sleek, and loved the bathtub! Just remodeled and wonderful to soak in. Great wifi and just a comfortable atmosphere. Sara was very personable and gave me some great tips about her city. Although I was out and about most of the time I was there, Sara told me I could use the tv and the living room space to my liking. She was a lovely host (thank you Sara!) Breakfast of toast, orange juice, muesli, banana, and a wide choice of spreads was ready in the kitchen for me each morning. An easy walk to bus stops (it is in a hilly area but most of Wellington seems to be) so if you have your own car, be careful to turn your wheels towards the curb so it doesn't roll down! A tip Sara made sure to mention to me. I wouldn't hesitate to book her place if I was staying in Wellington again.
Despite a very late arrival time due to our flight Sara was happy to accommodate us. We were provided with lots of information including the expected cost of taxis before we arrived. Sara also left breakfast out for us which included fruit juice, fruit and toasts. The room and the rest of the house was lovely. Beautiful decoration, spacious, clean and great views of Wellington. Transport to the city is easy with a quick walk to the bottom of the road and frequent buses. All information provided in the room. Juno the cat was extremely friendly too! We'd certainly stay again! Thank you!
A lovely home situated high above the streets of the Kilbirnie section of Wellington, with a magnificent view, and close to the Airport. Comfortable bedroom and very modern bathroom. Parking is challenging on the steep narrow neighbourhood streets. 10-minutes to downtown by car.
Sara left us pretty much on our own...she laid out breakfast things, but we had relatively little contact and, hence, got few ideas about things to do or see during our stay. She and Danny are very relaxed about guests being in their home.
Sara is a very considerate host. She was there when we needed her, and gave us space when we needed it.
Her place is a fantastic art gallery. You know, a place you always dreamt about having but never had the guts to make :)
The view from the house is breath taking. Location is great, the place is extremely close to the main bus line of Wellington (the one connecting your dream locations: Weta studios, Te Papa museum, Cuba street and Cable car.
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

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.
