Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Relax and enjoy a large light room with private entrance, a brand new private hot tub, and plenty of outdoor space - enjoy stunning views and all-day sun. The house is next to a reserve, so the only noise to disturb you will be birdsong.

We are friendly hosts who love this view and can’t wait to share it with you.

The room is just 10 minutes walk to the magical Spinnaker Summit and walking distance to some great local restaurants and cafe. And only 25 minutes train/drive into Wellington.

The space
While not self-contained, you have your own private entrance (accessible from round the back of the house). There is a screen that separates your bedroom/bathroom/spa pool from the rest of the house.

The bedroom is a good size with a queen size bed plus seating area. Tea and coffee making facilities are included, a mini-fridge, plus some games and books to help you relax. There is unlimited wireless internet.

On a sunny day, the room is flooded with sunlight. There is also a gas heater in the bedroom to make the space warm and cosy whatever the weather.

Adjacent to the room is a BRAND NEW indoor hot tub, which has stunning views of the Pauatahanui inlet. The bifold window opens fully so you can maximise your enjoyment of the view and get the best of indoor and outdoor vibes.

Large patio doors open up onto a patio area with a large tree and seating with all day sunshine and stunning views of the inlet. You’ll also have access to a large sheltered deck with beautiful mature planting.

You have private use of a bathroom with shower, washing machine and dryer. While there is no kitchen access, you’re welcome to use our Weber BBQ. We’ll provide plates, cutlery etc and washing up service.

Body boards and golf clubs available to borrow on request.
