THE FRONT ROOM
We would love you to stay with us in our spacious two-story home. We have two rooms available (with two people in each room). They are booked separately.
The Front Room:
Your light and airy bedroom with a comfortable queen bed is down stairs off the hall. The guest bathroom with separate toilet is off the same hall. The dining room, kitchen and laundry are also on the ground floor. Our bedroom and bathroom are upstairs so you will have a measure of privacy. There are bathrobes and a hair-dryer for your use.
We also have a studio room separate from the house with double bed if you would like more privacy. It is just a metre from the back door. You will need to come inside to use the guest bathroom. To book this, go to the separate listing on the AirBnB website - "Sunny Studio, close to town, WIFI".
We provide a continental breakfast and you have access to the kitchen. Just around the corner are cafes, restaurants, a pub, takeaways, a minimart, off-licence, hairdressers, money machines and the Penthouse – a multi-screen art-house cinema. You have the use of a Weber BBQ on our large deck.
With its reputation as the cultural capital of New Zealand, Wellington is a compact city, perfect for walking round. Brooklyn is an inner city suburb – it is just a short ten-minute stroll down through Central Park to the vibrant Cuba quarter and another five minutes to the jewel in Wellington’s crown – the waterfront. You can drive in three minutes or catch a bus from the stop right outside the door.
From the airport, grab a cab or shuttle (cheaper). We are 3 km from the ferry or train station - take a taxi or a bus which will drop you outside our door. Most of the time, I can pick you up (fee may apply).
Great place, great people ; we went back what can I say more ... Highly recommended..!!
Howard & Joan were excellent hosts - I wish we had had more time to chat. All necessary facilities and comforts are there and the location is ideal, not just for a pleasant walk through the park to Wellington centre but also for local shops and restaurants. We certainly can recommend to others.
My two night stay in Feb with my sister was great. Immediately felt "at home". Howard & Joan are such friendly & easy going people. Very supportive in assisting us during a mini crisis during that time- we are so very grateful. Meeting other guests was a bonus. Am only too happy to recommend Howard & Joan's place. I would also recommend the Indian takeaway around the corner. Yum!
Howards and Joan are warm and friendly people. We were invited on a real Kiwi barbecue with their friends. It was a lovely evening. Howards did a very goed job and prepared us a delicious diner. Joan prepared a jummy desert. Thank for that. We loved to stay with them.
We had a wonderful stay at this BnB. The location is great, it's a lovely walk to the city and easy access to buses if you would rather not walk. The room was beautiful, spacious and tidy, and the hosts were friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend to all!
Howard & Joan were wonderful hosts and we really enjoyed the conversations and their company. The house is very well located in Wellington and room was spacious and very clean. We look forward in going back in a few weeks time.
Nice that we could book the room at very short notice.
Good and sweet hosts. Nice room. Great Place and Great location.
We highly recommend this place
We had a great, relaxing time in Howard and Joan's lovely home, which has great amenities for guests including TV, robes for the bathroom dash, etc. Howard lays out a great free breakfast and is a genial host with some interesting tales to tell! He also kindly gave us a lift to the ferry for a few bucks. The house is located in the pleasant suburb of Brooklyn (with a great deco cinema), with a pleasant stroll through the park into town. It's a bit of an uphill slog back, but there are direct, quick buses. Thanks for a great stay!
A perfect experience. Thank you Howard
