I live in Washington DC due to my work for a non-profit organization. My heart is in my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand
Excellent location and most gracious host and flatmates. Highly recommended, especially for the beautiful views of the bay.
My partner and I had a terrific time staying at Mary's lovely home.
The place is quaint and comfortable, and well looked after.
The location is nothing short of spectacular, with terrific views of the beach. Mary set out a nice breakfast for us and went out of her way to give us a lift into the CBD.
Though we only stayed with her the one night, should we ever return to Wellington, we look forward to spending time at Mary's home on Oriental Parade.
Immediately as I stepped into Mary's home she was inviting me to a warm cup of tea. She is great to chat with or if you need to just be left on your own. Her flatmates were pleasant to chat with as well. The location is super convenient as it is walking distance to city attractions and has an beautiful view of Oriental Bay beach directly across the street. The room was spacious where I can spread out and even has a desk to do a little work on the computer. I appreciated the little things that she provided in the room such as towels, soap, robes, and especially the US to NZ power adapter! I would recommend Mary's place in a heartbeat!
A great place to stay, very quiet and relaxing, easy to sleep and beautiful view from the room. Lovely homemade granola breakfast too.
I felt like Jane Eyre having a room of my own as well as having a beautiful room with a view! Thank you Mary for the comfortable surroundings and warm hospitality. Warm wishes, Gretchen
Mary graciously shares her lovely historic home - which is as perfectly situated for someone sightseeing on foot as the description makes out.
The room is spacious, well set up for work and the view is incomparable. Loved the homemade granola/muesli in the morning and the ability to walk to everything I hoped to see during my short time in Wellington. A very homey experience for me was being able to entertain her cat (missing mine from home very much).
Thanks, Mary for the warm welcome and great conversation.
Mary has a lovely old house which feels really like home. She is a generous host and her flatmates are cool too. The house is clean and well positioned close to the city, easy walking distance. I would definitely stay again! thanks Mary
This was my first Airbnb experience and I am so happy it was at Mary's place. The house is very unique and special in an incredible central area with easy parking. The room itself is huge and has a fantastic view. Everything you need is in the room (hairdryer, kettle, towels, tv, local guides etc). But better than anything, Mary and her flatmates were really nice and the whole household has a calm, chilled out vibe. They made m feel really welcome. I wasn't expecting such a welcoming and lovely host, and to top it all off, there was a delicious breakfast in the morning!
Thanks Mary and flatties. I can't recommend enough!
Mary's house is in easy walking distance from the city, you get the master bedroom which has a stunning view over Wellington Bay. The bedroom itself is is large, warm, homely, very comfortable, although I found that I had no need to spend much time there. There rest of the house was just as welcoming and spacious. The kitchen is great and Mary made me feel quite at home cooking my one meals etc. It has a smallish sitting room with open fire which I must say was very comfortable given the weather outside. Mary made me relaxed and welcome. Everything was quite casual and easy going. The only thing I have suggested to Mary that she could do to improve my stay was to improve the weather ...
My partner and I stayed at Mary's place for 3 nights. We felt immediately at home and noticed that the house had a welcoming relaxing feel right from the start. Mary was always helpful and generous with her space and we never felt like we were intruding. Amazing house and fantastic location with regard to views and proximity. We both felt a little sad to leave and hope to return on our next trip to wellington. Thankyou again Mary.
Mary was a great guest. Very spontaneous, and with interesting stories to tell. She came with a friend and were both very charming. They treated the appartment with the greatest respect, leaving it superclean. Thanks mary! I hope you had fun in the klos!
