Interaction with Guests
It is nice to catch up over a glass of wine or cup of coffee. I am happy to go with the flow and what works for my guests.
Other Things to Note
I haven't updated my photos recently. The bed pictured is a pull out bed. I now have a queen size metal framed bed. Very comfy but does take up a bit more space in the room. Also I now have have great views of the harbour from my balcony(I moved three floors up!) but haven't uploaded photos yet.
To feel at home!
It was a pleasure stay at Sophia's place! The location is close to everything like the te papa and cuba street. The room is big and you can have a good view from her place. Sophia is a great host who share advices of where to go in Wellington and feel free to ask her any questions if you have. Recommended to stay here!
The location could not get any better! Straight bang in the middle of Wellington. Sophia was kind and welcoming. She left the key at the cafe downstairs. Apartment was spotless and we were told to help ourselves to whatever we needed. We only stayed a night but our flight arrived into welly early morning and left late at night, Sophia let us hang around till our flight.
Sophia is an excellent host - very warm an welcoming into her apartment, which might I say has an excellent view of the harbour.
I was in town for an audition and was even allowed to practice my instrument which was fantastic.
This was my first AirBnb experience and certainly picked a great host to stay with - hopefully I'll be back again in the future.
I had a fantastic stay at Sophia's apartment. It was easy to find with great directions, close to everything, very spacious and clean. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Sophia as our paths didn't cross but hopefully I will next time!
Had a lovely stay with Sophia in central Wellington. Room & apartment was lovely & clean, centrally located & easy to get to everything. Sophia made me feel very welcome - will definitely look to stay again when next in Wellington.
Sophie was a very welcoming host, giving detailed instructions on how to get to her accommodation and access the apartment while she was at work. The apartment is large and nicely furnished with excellent wi-fi signal and towels for your use.
Sophie is a smoker, and smokes outside on the balcony with the door shut, so you should be aware of this if you are very sensitive to smoke smells.
The apartment is in a high rise block, so you get a great view of the harbour. The bed is comfortable, it is a fold out sofa bed with a metal frame, not wooden framed as per the current picture on the website.
I would recommend this accommodation, as it is very centrally located so very handy to drop in and out of when around town and Sophie is a very flexible and accommodating host.
I loved my stay with Sophia! She was such a warm and friendly host - great to hang out with on the balcony and have a chat over a glass of wine. Honestly, spending time in Sophia's apartment is like being welcomed into the home of a good friend. Her motto is "make yourself at home" and that pretty much says it all about how comfortable your stay will be. Her place is so conveniently located - you're less than 5 minutes from Cuba St., the Te Papa, and the waterfront markets. You can walk everywhere and enjoy the heart of Wellington. The apartment is also immaculately clean and incredibly bright and airy and includes a spectacular view of the Wellington harbour. Sophia takes excellent care of her place, it is very neat and tidy. You will feel pampered there because of the attention she gives to every little detail, including high thread count sheets and a fluffy duvet to gleaming white linens and towels. The place is also beautifully furnished. My time at Sophia's apartment was the highlight of my trip to Wellington!
About the Host, Sophia
Hi, I am a single woman in her 40's working full time as a psychologist. I have a busy life - work and other interests - I have a two bedroom apartment with the second room available on long or short term basis (price can be varied depending on length of stay). I have been doing the airbnb thing since November 2012 and enjoy it, having met many wonderful people, so am likely to continue to do this for a little while to come. House rules, expectations?- enjoy your time in wellington and make yourself at home in my apartment!
I am a smoker but only smoke outside on the balcony with the door closed.
One thing to note -I work full time - leaving home early in the morning and returning around 6pm. I don't have access to this site during working hours so I not able to respond to any last minute requests during weekdays.
