About this listing

Ideally situated close to town, overlooking Wellington harbour you can enjoy great views of the city and a warm, sunny aspect. You will have a comfortable bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a large private sitting room and deck.

The space

Our large and comfortable old house is close to town in a quiet, long established area known as Wellington's "Dress Circle" because of the great views.

Your space occupies the whole downstairs area with its own entrance, a bedroom with good storage space and an en-suite bathroom, a large sitting room with a 50" TV (including Sky sport), leading on to a sunny deck. You will have your own fridge, kettle, toaster and we will provide all you will need to prepare yourself a continental style breakfast.

There is a shallow flight of about 20 steps down to the front door. There are an additional few, slightly steeper, to your private entrance, or you can use the internal stairs in the house.

Guest access

Unlimited fast broadband is available and you will also have access to our laundry facilities.

Interaction with guests

We enjoy introducing visitors to our beautiful city and will be happy to give you guidance about the attractions Wellington has to offer - restaurants, galleries, museums and cinemas as well as walks and excursions.

We look forward to making your stay comfortable and hope you will enjoy sharing our home and wonderful surroundings. We will often be about in the evening if you would like to chat, but we won't intrude if you prefer peace and quiet.

A lovely, well presented place to stay. Beautiful views from the room. We enjoyed the yummy breakfast foods provided. The location of the house was great as its fairly close to town,however parking was terrible and we had to park quite a way down the street and walk.

Our stay at Hilary's was very relaxed. The downstairs rooms are quite private and guests have plenty of space with large lounge, bed and bath rooms. The breakfast/beverages provided were a welcome 'treat'. Wellington has lots of interesting sites, particularly if you catch sunny weather as we did. Don't miss 'Gallipoli' at Te Papa if you have the time. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

I loved staying here! My hosts were welcoming and provided me with lovely food and recommendations. I would highly recommend staying here if you come to Wellington. Air BNB at its best!

Hilary and Richards' accommodation was absolutely fabulous with lots of very thoughtful extra touches, Viennese biscuits, chocolate and a range of breakfast ingredients. A selection of information leaflets and guides were on hand for our use and Richard and Hilary gave us several recommendations which were all spot on. The views over Wellington harbour are stunning. The sitting room provided for our own use was very comfortable with Sky television, not that we had time to watch it! The walk down to the harbour and city centre, although steep, was very easy and the bus stop is right outside their front gate. Airbnb at it's best.

Hilary and Richard's place was very comfortable with exceptional views of Wellington. They made us feel very welcome, and even bought us breakfast supplies. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there in the future.

Hilary User ProfileHilary is a superhost.

I was born and grew up in Wellington and moved to the UK in my early twenties. After 30 years loving our life in London, I came back home with my husband. We are so lucky to have time in two great cities, spending a couple of months each year in London and the rest enjoying all that Wellington has to offer. Since we have been back we have so enjoyed having friends come to stay and showing off our lovely city and we are now really looking forward welcoming Airbnb guests.
