About This Listing
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.
Sara and Danny are the most fabulous hosts! Very warm and inviting home with a very comfortable bed and adjacent ensuite. Bus to city is just 5 mins walk away and a quick ride to the city of about 15 minutes. This airbnb is close to the Wellington airport too. There are a couple of nice cafes close by. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
My husband Anthony and I stayed at Sara and Danny's beautiful home for 4 nights. The house is very well designed and decorated and has gorgeous views. We enjoyed a great deal of privacy in our room and appreciated the laid back energy in the home. We felt perfectly comfortable here. Although our schedule didn't sync with Sara's, she laid out quality breakfast items every morning and was very friendly to chat with when we did cross paths. I would stay here again without hesitation.
Sara & Danny were lovely people and we enjoyed staying in their home with lovely views from all windows. The room upstairs was quiet and private with the added benefit of an ensuite. We were left to get on with our own stuff which suited us fine although they were on hand to answer any questions etc. All the breakfast supplies were laid out for us to help ourselves when we wanted them. Bus to city a few minutes walk down the hill. Would recommend without hesitation
What an amazing location and house! The bathroom was one of the best I've ever seen. Was a easy bus ride into Wellington itself and restaurants/supermarkets just a short walk down the hill. We were greeted by Sara's niece (as Sara was away in Auckland) but got to meet Sara the following day. Totally enjoyed our stay!
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.

About the Host, 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.
