Private double room with wardrobe in the absolute best location for exploring Wellington City!
Double room with wardrobe in a modern central city apartment, with high studded ceilings and great views out onto Courtenay Place. Located in one of the best locations in Wellington with few accommodation options in the heart of the city (apart from the stunning but pricey Museum Hotel), when you are not sight-seeing you can people watch from the living room.
Facilities include shared bathroom with washer and dryer, fully-equipped kitchen, separate study with printer for your use and spacious living/dining area with great views onto Courtenay Place.
Please note: this is an internal room, with fan ventilation.
With the entire city on the doorstep, there is absolutely no need to bus or taxi anywhere. Walk outside the entrance of the apartment and find yourself on the bustling main street of Courtenay Place, home of some of Wellington's best bars and restaurants. From here it is only a 2 minute walk to Reading Cinema, the St. James Theatre and the famous Cuba Street.
A further 5-10 minute will get you to the Te Papa Museum, the waterfront, live theatres, designer shopping, city markets, New World supermarket, Waitangi Park and Oriental Parade’s promenade and beach.
Situated right on the central bus route that takes you to and from the Wellington Airport ($9 per way), walk 5 metres down the road from the entrance of the building and find yourself at the bus stop. New Zealand's most popular gym, Les Mills is also located right across the street.
Rate includes free internet, free local calling to landlines, and use of the washing machine and dryer. Basic breakfast can be provided if requested.
There are two parking options within a 1 minute walk of the apartment, one covered and one uncovered.
You will share the apartment with a friendly, female, young professional (non-smoker), who will have you well-acquainted with the Capital City by the time you leave, but also give you your own space. You'll also have your own set of keys so you can come and go hassle-free (even when sneaking in at 4am).
PLEASE NOTE: The apartment has 2 bedrooms, and the entire thing can be available on request and at an additional price.
In light of the recent earthquakes I am happy to say that the building is earthquake-safe. I've experienced both big ones at home, and everything is fine!
Interaction with Guests
I am at work 8:30-5:30 on weekdays but home most evenings and weekends. Available to personally check in guests almost anytime of the day and any day of the week.
The Courtenay Quarter is a vibrant and bustling hub of activity both day and night. Home to some of Wellington's best bars and restaurants, Courtenay Place also hosts 90% of Wellington's live theatre venues - making it perfect for art and music lovers. What's more, is that New Zealand's best museum - Te Papa is only two blocks (5 minutes walk) away. For outdoor activities, hike up Mt Victoria and see a spectacular view of the entire city and harbour, take a bike ride along the waterfront, or rent kayakes in the harbour. No matter what you are into, the immediate area is jammed full of arts, entertainment, culture and outdoors.
Courtenay Place is the main bus route and all major buses including the $9/way airport bus stops right outside the front door.
Smoking outside only.
$75 charge for lost key or security card.
Shadoe was a fabulous host. She accommodated our every need and made the stay very comfortable. The location was brilliant, right in the middle of everything and the apartment was beautiful. Thank you Shadoe!
Great experience. Fantastic location in the heart of Wellington close to pretty much everything. Room and accommodations were as expected and very comfortable. Shadoe was a very friendly, responsive, and helpful host.
Shadoe's place is spotless! It's also quite homey; it's exactly what any traveler would want from an Airbnb experience.
It's also really in a perfect location to walk to Wellington's attractions: 5 min walk to Cuba St., 5 min to Te Papa Museum and a nice stroll to Oriental Bay and to the cable car to the Botanical Gardens. I would absolutely recommend Shadoe's place to anyone visiting Wellington. And if/when I return to Wellington, I would absolutely try to stay at Shadoe's place again!! Highest praise here!!
Lovely to meet Shadoe and she was extremely welcoming and friendly. Excellent, clean apartment with lots of space, well furnished and very homely in a perfect location
Best location is a very accurate statement! The apartment itself was very nice and perfectly located close to everything. Shadoe and Stefan were great hosts, gave good recommendations of things to do and were kind enough to invite me out with them my last night in Wellington. I had a great time getting to know them both.
Shadoe's apartment was spotless, beautifully furnished, and very centrally located in the heart of downtown Wellington. It'll be hard to find another airbnb that beats this location. Bed was comfortable and bathroom very clean. Shadoe and her boyfriend were very friendly and helpful with local takeout recommendations, and let us use the kitchen for cooking breakfast and dinner. We had a great stay and would definitely stay there again!
Amazing apartment centrally located and extremely clean especially with short notice. Shadoe was very accommodating to help us with a late check in time. The homemade cookies also went down a treat too!!
Nice to meet you! I'm Shadoe. I am a marketing contractor with a small graphic design business and I love to cook. I would love to help get you acquainted with the beautiful city of Wellington!
