Riana and Leighton's place is great for a stay in Wellington! The house is well situated a 5 minute drive from the CBD and Hataitai town is a few minute walk away for food and drinks close by! The room has a large double bed which was very comfortable for our stay! Overall we really enjoyed our time here and can only recommend it to others!

Definitely a good value for a place close to central Wellington. Not exactly walking distance from downtown, but just a short drive by Uber/bus/car. A great location for hiking to the Mt. Victoria lookout, from which you can take another track down into the city (fun half-day activity). Though we only met her for a second, Riana was very kind, and the room was very comfortable. I had just moved out from uni and so I had a lot of luggage, so the stairs were a good morning exercise on the way to the airport! Highly suggest, especially for pairs that don't want to pay $30+ for hostels downtown.

Hi we're Leighton and Riana from New Zealand. We love the outdoors- hiking, running, mountain biking. We also love listening to live music whilst enjoying a tasty beer. When traveling across the globe we like to see, smell, taste and do new things, meeting new friends and experiencing new cultures is also an awesome experience.
