Mark's beautiful house is tucked up at the top of the cable car with a great view over Kelburn. Mark was a very welcoming and accommodating and his home was very convenient to everything Wellington city had to offer. We had a wonderful stay.

To be so close to the centre of the city and yet find Mark's home is surrounded by trees, birdlife and quiet serenity was bliss. Mark's an affable, charming host and his home has such lovely features which compliment his personality. I had a very pleasant, peaceful stay and am heading away rested and re- charged.

Highly recommend staying with Mark at Kelburn House! Mark is a wonderfully hospitable and welcoming host with a jovial and open manner. He has thought of all the little touches that add to the pleasantness of your stay, such as a bottle of water, tissues, electric blanket, luggage rack, very comfortable bed, plenty of handy power points, hangers and cupboard space if you want to put your things away in the bedroom. The sun shines into the bedroom in the morning, and then you can follow the sun around during the day in the lounge, right around to the back deck. The house is over a hundred years old and has a grand feel to it, but it has all the modern conveniences of an extremely quiet heat pump in the main living area, central heating vents throughout, and the fabulous heated floor in the spacious bathroom! Again, in the bathroom, Mark has everything there for you from salts for the lovely deep bath, a separate shower, and all sorts of personal products and scented candles to enhance the bathing experience. The 2 lounge areas were comfortable, and the kitchen has everything. Mark made us delicious breakfasts, including porridge, and great expresso coffee. Kelburn House is in a great location at the top of the cable car which can zap you down to Lambton Quay within 2.5 minutes. A big thank you to Mark, for generously running my husband to his appointment on The Terrace when his ordered car didn't arrive and on another occasion, for saving us walking in the rain shower by driving us to the cable car. We also thank you for being flexible about our checking out time so I could relax at Kelburn House until being picked up after my husband's meeting to go to the airport around 4:30. You exemplify kiwi hospitality!
