This is our dream home in a city that we love. Half an hour walk through Central Park to the city or a 5 min drive. Direct bus to the city from the driveway. Awesome views over the mountains and down to the harbour. Off road parking. Sunny. Good heating. Wraparound deck garden safe for kids as well as a large (and steep) bush section to explore. It is available from 26 Dec to 8 Jan.
Our lovely house is available while we are away for a couple of weeks. This is a family home rather than a 5 star hotel. But unlike a hotel, it has everything that you could need for a longer stay from DVDs and playstation games to a slow cooker and fancy juicer. From 500 books to board games and kids toys.
Our house is in a sunny spot tucked away from the road and sheltered from the famous Wellington wind. It is down a driveway with parking by the house and unlike most houses with a view in Wellington, has no steps to contend with :-) The house is completely private behind a large gate and you would never guess that you are a 5 minute drive from the middle of New Zealand's capital city. There is a fenced garden surrounding the house that is safe for children and a large (steep) garden of bush and trees to explore.
Our one-level home has two double bedrooms (one king bed and one double) with fitted wardrobes and a spare single mattress that can also be used. There are two modern bathrooms with a shower in one and a bath and washing machine and tumble-drier in the other. The new and very modern kitchen has a large fridge-freezer, oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and all the pots, pans, crockery, cutlery etc you could ever need. There is also a juicer, slow cooker, fancy cake mixer, sandwich toaster etc.
The kitchen is part of a large open-plan kitchen-diner-playroom-lounge that looks out over the mountains and down to Wellington harbour. It's got a super comfy large leather sofa and a ton of books, DVDs and toys. The lounge has a wall of floor to ceiling windows as well as a large skylight so is very light and airy.
Heating is really important to us Brits who are used to central heating :-) Our lounge has a gas heater and a heat pump and each bedroom has an oil heater.
We have shut off one small bedroom so that all of our crap can be hidden away and you can stay in the lovely clean and tidy house that we would love to live in all of the time :-)

Just the usual - no smoking in the house and please leave it in the clean and tidy state that you will find it in. No loud parties please. Any damage will need to be paid for.
We are a family of three from the UK loving life in the coolest capital city in the world. We've moved a lot in the last few years and have finally found our dream home. We hope that someone else can enjoy our beautiful home while we are away.
