Boutique apartment in the creative Cuba quarter in the heart of the ‘coolest little capital’ in the world. Here quality, character and culture combine to offer unique accommodation. Situated above one of the city’s leading contemporary art galleries in a building that was originally a stable, this recently refurbished apartment is distinctively furnished with top quality art, courtesy of the gallery.
The Art Stable features one bedroom with a super king or two single beds and a sofa bed in the living room. Double glazing and luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets and quality linen should ensure a good night’s sleep. A full kitchen, with light breakfast provisions, is available, but with so many cafes right on the doorstep, you may just want to eat out.
Your visit to Wellington is hosted (if you need a host) by Alison (and the sweet natured chocolate Labrador Coco) who live in the adjacent apartment. A born and bred Wellingtonian, Alison can provide advice on all the best places to see and eat as well as things to do. Just 500 metres from the city’s award winning waterfront, the Art Stable offers a warm retreat and easy walking access to everything the city has to offer – from inner city shopping and entertainment to harbour, beach and bush.
Most of the year, we are happy to have one night stays but cannot accept these during holiday periods such as Christmas and Easter and during special events in Wellington. Instead of having a minimum 2 night stay, we charge a little extra for one night so a one night stay is NZ$260. These rates are for 2 people. Additional people $40 each.
Our prices include 15% goods and services tax so the basic accommodation price is 85% of the listed price.
This apartment is strictly non-smoking. Enjoy the magazines and if you haven't finished reading when you are ready to leave, just tell us and you can take it with you. We cant apply the same policy to books though - we want them to stay for everyone to enjoy.
The perfect place for a stay in Wellington. We would have loved to stay longer and would come back anytime. The place is beautifully designed with high quality interior and art on the walls. Alison responded promptly, was super welcoming and took the time to show us her amazing gallery downstairs. She also gave us great recommendations where to eat out and go in Wellington.
The location of the apartment is great to explore many attractions by foot. And not to forget the cutest labrador in New Zealand which was welcoming us on the doorstep.
Alison was so helpful and the apartment was beautiful! She even assisted us with booking our parking! The apartment is in walking distance to a variety of shops and restaurants. The bed was very comfortable. Alison and her chocolate lab, Coco were both so friendly and hospitable! We would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I arrived in Wellington early in the morning and we were given access to the Art Stable right away. It was a wonderful apartment to welcome us to New Zealand, nestled in a great neighborhood complete with excellent restaurants and cafes. The upstairs kitchen and living room were quite spacious, and the downstairs bedroom was very comfortable. At the times Alison wasn't available, her partner Neville responded immediately and answered all of our questions about the apartment, the neighborhood, the city, and our stay.
My wife and I had a wonderful time in Wellington. The apartment had an absolutely incredible location. It was a nice size with everything we needed. We were able to do a little bit of laundry and there was a full kitchen. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting Alison since she was on holiday but she gave us thorough instructions and was in constant communication when needed.
Great stay! Location could not have been better, right in the heart of Wellington. Apartment was clean and modern, with beautiful art, and had everything we needed. Making arrangements with Alison to pickup the key was very easy.
Best host, great apartment... we honestly could not be happier with our experience! Thank you for a fabulous base to explore Wellington.
Had a fantastic stay at Alison's apartment! Everything was so close - walked everywhere! The apartment was just brilliant - would totally stay here again. Thanks again Alison!!
I am a passionate Wellingtonian, art lover, book lover, dog walker, foodie, mother... I am pleased to be able to share my enthusiasm for this city and its cultural life with visitors.
