The Little Blue Penguin Retreat provides you with a double bedroom with a queensize bed in a cosy 2 storied house in the delightfully quiet Breaker Bay with nearly all day sun, and sheltered from the elements. We have stunning, uninterrupted sea and mountain views, and close to the airport but no noise!

We recently installed a brand new luxurious hotsprings spa pool available for guest use. The spa is in our private and secluded courtyard garden that is very sheltered from the weather.

Absolutely loved staying at Raymond’s place. He was very hospitable and his house is in a beautiful location. There’s a walking track nearby and it was so nice to be able to get out and about after a long day of traveling. I would definitely stay here again!

Raymond is a very welcoming host. He offered to pick me up from the airport which was really nice and he made me feel very welcome in his home. The house has an amazing view onto the bay. I hope I can come back and stay longer next time!

Just the best. I was in Wellington for 3 nights and was looking for something a walk away from gorgeous beaches and hikes -- and less of a city experience. Raymond's place could not have been more perfect. It was a 15 min taxi away (25 min during busy times) from downtown Welling…

Response from Raymond:
Arjun, thanks for the positive feedback, much appreciated and enjoyed hostign you. If you went on the metlink website: (Website hidden by Airbnb) and entered your journey in the trip planner it would have shown you the bus routes and timetables for the transport options to and from Breaker Bay. Details of all transport options to and from Breaker Bay are included in the listing details for the Little Blue Penguin Nest. Its only a 10-15min walk to the Seatoun bus that runs every 15-20mins during the day until midnight or so. I also provide transport as required, if necessary, and took Arjun to the Interislander Ferry terminal free of charge :-)
