The space
Enjoy Wellington at its best! This is the perfect spot if you are a traveller looking for a memorable and comfortable place to stay, or if you are in Wellington on business and need a quiet spot to call home for a few days. Need to do work once you return "home" - no problem as there is wireless internet and a desk - no more awkward working off your lap on the couch! Once you are off duty, just sit on the couch and soak up the view!

Enjoy this artist's retreat where you will be truly inspired by the stunning 180-degree view of the ocean, harbour and hills. Literally, count dolphins from your couch, admire the evening sky, check out the water sports activity of the day, survey the comings and goings in the harbour or do a bit of plane spotting. You will never ever tire of looking at this view - no wonder it is called View Road!

Cook up a storm in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen and then savour the delights looking out to sea. In the morning lift your head off the pillow and enjoy your hot drink with views over the ocean all the way out to the horizon.

The apartment itself is very bright, spacious and homely. A true home away from home. Keep toasty warm even on those chilly nights thanks to double glazing, insulation and heavy duty heaters. The deck overlooking the wave is a great spot for keeping tabs on what water sport is the flavour of the day.

The location is fantastic. There is a bus stop outside the door which takes you straight into the centre of town, the train station and the Bluebridge ferry terminal. Easy as pie for commuters to the city. If you are catching a plane in the morning, there is no better place to be. Just jump in a cab and you are there in 5 minutes.

Walk to Lyall Bay in under 10 minutes, your closest sandy beach and Wellington's surfing hub. Remember to drop into Maranui café, which is a true institution in Wellington - the perfect brunch spot. There are a few other great restaurants in walking distance. Aside from the many coastal walks outside your doorstep, there is also an array of wind-protected bush walks.

You will love this quiet spot, which is sure to provide you with heaps of inspiration. Come and enjoy. The place comes with a guarantee that you will find it hard to leave!

Guest access
Travellers have access to all areas of the house and deck.

The laundry is in a shared stairwell which you can request access. Please keep the separating door closed/locked when not in the laundry and please do not use after 1030pm at night.

Other things to note
Whilst most of our guests have been happy with their stay, we like to be honest about some things that we can't change:
- Access can be tricky which is not easy for those less than able or when it is wet/windy. There are some steps down a concrete path down to the house.
- Location, we are on a hill and it is a steep walk down or up to the beach which only suits the fit.
- Whilst it's only a 15-minute drive to found, some guests have found this an inconvenience with the windy roads to get to the house. The bus does stop next to the house but is infrequent outside rush hour and does not run late.
