Character 1920s tastefully refurbished home in native garden setting with large sunny patio and lawn. Our property is regarded as one of Island Bay's exclusive homes.

The space

Our home, Tui Gardens, is set in a large native tree lined property in Island Bay Wellington. The native Tui is one cheeky bird. They flock to our native trees, in numbers, hence our Title Name. Architecturally designed and built in the 1920's, our home has been remodeled and outfitted for modern living, whilst keeping the charm of the classic period.
Living areas are on the lower floor and primary bedrooms on the second floor while secondary bedroom for three people including two singles and one airbed are situated in the third level.
Tui Gardens is a mecca for our native birds including the chatterbox tui. We enjoy a very sheltered and private lifestyle with the manicured garden and outdoor dining facilities adding to the charm of our home.

Viv and Cooper are a lovely easy going couple who have treated me like one of the family. Gorgeous home! The bed has a super comfy mattress and electric blanket. The room is spacious with a nice big leather armchair and plenty of storage looking out to the island bay hills. Gardens beautiful and coastal walks only 5 mins away. Regular public transport into city 2 mins down the road. They should have super host status already!
