  • Lovely little space out of the hustle and bustle of Wellington CBD. Hosts went above and beyond with amenities. On street parking can be a little tricky due to the narrow roads. Despite this we'd happily return.

Need to do work once you return "home" - no problem as there is wireless internet and a desk - no more awkward working off your lap on the couch! Once you are off duty, just sit on the couch and soak up the view! Enjoy this artist's retreat where you will be truly inspired by the stunning 180-degree view of the ocean, harbour and hills. Literally, count dolphins from your couch, admire the evening sky, check out the water sports activity of the day, survey the comings and goings in the harbour or do a bit of plane spotting. You will never ever tire of looking at this view - no wonder it is called View Road! Cook up a storm in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen and then savour the delights looking out to sea. In the morning lift your head off the pillow and enjoy your hot drink with views over the ocean all the way out to the horizon. The apartment itself is very bright, spacious and homely. A true home away from home. Keep toasty warm even on those chilly nights thanks to double glazing, insulation and heavy duty heaters. The deck overlooking the wave is a great spot for keeping tabs on what water sport is the flavour of the day. The location is fantastic. There is a bus stop outside the door which takes you straight into the centre of town, the train station and the Bluebridge ferry terminal. Easy as pie for commuters to the city. If you are catching a plane in the morning, there is no better place to be. Just jump in a cab and you are there in 5 minutes. Walk to Lyall Bay in under 10 minutes, your closest sandy beach and Wellington's surfing hub. Remember to drop into Maranui café, which is a true institution in Wellington - the perfect brunch spot. There are a few other great restaurants in walking distance. Aside from the many coastal walks outside your doorstep, there is also an array of wind-protected bush walks. You will love this quiet spot, which is sure to provide you with heaps of inspiration. Come and enjoy. The place comes with a guarantee that you will find it hard to leave!
    Houghton Bay is a very safe and quiet residential area with a real seaside feel to it. Plenty of cool and quirky cafés and restaurants (Spruce Goose, Diamond Deli, Maranui, Elements) in walking distance. Spectacular bush and coastal walks just outside the door.

  • One of the most stylish, thoughtfully designed Airbnbs we have ever stayed in. The view from the eating area and the bedroom area looking out into the bay is unbelievably stunning, especially at sunrise! The beach is only a short drive away and we enjoyed being able to escape the busy city center with this tranquil property up on a hill. We also most appreciated the well-stocked kitchen!

  • If you are visiting Wellington, this AirBNB is a no brainer! It is absolutely gorgeous and has a view you won’t forget. The interior is lovely and very stylish. You are perched up on a hill which makes it feel exclusive all the while being close to great restaurants and cafes. We felt so happy and at home here and hope to come back one day!

    Our cute little cottage is a 2 minute walk to the beach, a beach well known for its waves and surfing. It is a 5 minute drive from Wellington airport, Weta Cave and Wellington CBD. The cottage is a spacious modern 2 bedroom house with a washing machine, dishwasher, fully equipped kitchen and unlimited WIFI. All linen and towels are provided.
    We are very proud of our little cottage. It is a special place and we are happy to share it with you. It is conveniently located on the Wellington bus route and is also an easy place for parking if you have your own car. Whether by bus or car, we are only 5 - 15 minutes from the CBD and other Wellington attractions. Within walking distance of the cottage are local cafes plus the local dairy where you can buy your favourite ice-cream in a cone. (Perhaps the kiwi iconic flavour, hokey pokey) and also the local Fish and Chip shop. (Another kiwi favourite.) We hope you enjoy our cottage as much we do, and have fun in our fabulous city.
    Recommended Dining Maranui Cafe for a breakfast/ brunch is a five minute walk along Lyall Bay Parade Sweet Mother’s Kitchen for good food at affordable prices in Courtenay Place Patrisha’s Original Pie Shop for great bakery
  • We had a wonderful stay at Mike and Catriona’s place. It was more then we expected, beautiful interior design, very clean, with thoughtful details and treats, and a beautiful walk through the suburbs and nature reserve into town. I would definitely stay there next time I am in Wellington again. Highly recommended

    Jennifer2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t do justice to this lovely cottage. It was sparklingly clean and stylishly decorated. A really good location handy for getting into wellington. We enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again sometime. Highly recommended.

    Jane2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay. Beautiful house, beautiful location. Everything was sparkling clean and was a joy to stay in. Would definitely stay again. Mike & Catriona were great to communicate with and very helpful with our early check-in. Thank you!!

    The interior is rustic natural timbers with no preservatives. The exterior is rock, and in between is a very strong structural frame. The views are great. There is an ensuite in the bedroom and another toilet at the entrance. Spa bath with a glimpse of the rocky seashore and open sea. Rooftop picnic table.
  • This building is unique and special. Read the visitors book... All the happy occasions that are celebrated at The Keep, are imbued into the building. The charming touches like fresh fruit and flowers are appreciated. We'll be back again!

    Ang2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The Keep is truly a special place. The views are absolutely amazing and we loved relaxing and taking it all in. We would highly recommend to anyone who is in the area!

    Andrea2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful building with spectacular views. All about the experience and it doesn't disappoint. The views alone would be worth it but then you throw in an unforgettable place to stay, it's unique charm does not let you down. Highly recommend the walk to see the Fur Seals at Red Rock. Wonderful!

    Joshua2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning and unique little castle right on the ocean. My only complaint is that we stayed just one night. Away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Wellington. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in the area.

    Garrett2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • expect a great bed ,, great views and great character

    Kerry2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

    Josh2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The location and views were absolute tops! So close to some of Wellingtons best cafes (in my biased opinion). The spa bath was huge and bed super comfy. Very quirky and filled with character. Loved it and wish I stayed longer

    Marty2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Stunning view of the ocean, mountain & hills. Offering a peaceful and light drenched space to retreat. If it's time for a bit of romance, inspiration, a work trip or simply a trip away to our cool city you're after then look no further. Plenty of space for 2 to enjoy brekkie at the table, a drink on the deck at sunset, or a book on the sprawling sofa. Bus Stop a 2 minute walk and the amazing South Coast beaches/ villages at your doorstep. Direct buses to Wellington Hospital (8mins) and CBD.
    Very private, tranquil space with ample natural light & sunshine. A stylish design with luxurious two track curtains, a sprawling sofa, ironed linen and dining table. Views that can’t be captured by camera but are magical, especially at sunset. You can see the South Island mountain ranges and even have a view from the shower. Private deck overlooking the views - perfect for a summer sun-downer. Expect fresh flowers, ironed pillow cases, 3 ply and a great continental breakfast! We want your stay to feel luxurious, not just another bed with tea & coffee.
    There's no place like Wellington's South Coast - Lyall Bay is great for surfing, beaching and eating out. Island Bay has a boutique cinema & eatery and a great village. Princess Bay is perfect for picnics and safe swimming... That's just the beginning! Our neighbourhood is quiet, one guest recently told us he took out his ear plugs for the first time in years!
  • Gorgeous studio, clean, tidy and great views Very friendly hosts - what should we write more? Good bus connections very close to the house - however also time for some challenging walks - very hilly Absolutely recommended- you can’t go wrong with this accommodation

    Lovely home in friendly neighbourhood, close to shops and beach on beautiful South Coast of Wellington. Off street parking and bus to Wellington CBD (5 km). Dog and a cat to always welcome you!
  • Great spot!

    Tania2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay with good access to local shops and buses to the CBD.

    Tania2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Alex is a great host. She is an excellent conversationalist and is considerate and empathetic. Her cat is lovely and friendly. The house is in an excellent location with a short walk to the shops or the beach. There is also a bus stop located outside. The area is quiet and picturesque.

    Paul2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house is wonderfully situated in Island Bay. Easy access to many shops and entertainment including the beach close by. The room itself is very comfortable and the house is easy to use and is well maintained. Alex was a wonderful host, very attentive and very welcoming! Would highly recommend a stay!

    Krishna2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • Alex is very welcoming and makes you feel at home. The accommodation is a very short walk to the shops at Island Bay. Great place to stay.

    Mary2019-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • Could not fault my stay with Alex. Ideal location for getting into the city as well as being so close to the coast. Alex is kind and welcoming and really easy to talk to, offers advice on places to see and visit and always answered any questions I had. Will definitely be back and absolutely recommend staying with Alex!

    Becca2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • I liked it so much I extended my stay for another month! Perfectly located for work in Kaiwharawhara and couldn't have asked for more in a host. Highly recommend.

    Cat2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Alex's home is in a very convenient location around a 20 min drive from the CBD. Island Bay itself is beautiful and has everything you could need - supermarket, chemist, cinema etc. I stayed long term whilst working and it was perfectly placed on the bus route for a 50 min commute to Kaiwharawhara. To Courtenay Place is roughly 20/25 mins. There is also a bus stop right outside the house and that bus can take you to Brooklyn or Newtown (where there is a great saturday fruit and veg market). Alex has been above and beyond what I would expect from a host. She is so kind and welcoming and so interesting to talk to. I have felt right at home since day 1 and would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Wellington (I liked it so much I've stayed another month!). Also lovely to interact with the animals and Jackie too has been so kind. Both Alex and Jackie have given me lots of tips of things to see and do around Wellington which has really enhanced my stay. Thank you so much for everything!

    Marie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Even better than the listing looks. Lots of room. Really comfy bed. Made use of the big tv. We loved it and felt like we had our own space. There was a bit of noise in the mornings and evening in the garden but it didn’t last long. Definitely stay here! Great way to explore Wellington without being in the CBD

    Rhea2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Clean, comfortable and cosy room with everything you need for that short stopover. The house is clean and tidy and is elevated for views over Island Bay where you can watch the Ferries sail by. Handy to shops, transport, beach, airport and Wellington City.
    We offer a private room with a shared bathroom. The bedroom is newly decorated, very comfortable and will accommodate singles or a couple. The bedroom comes with Chrome Cast tv, heating and tea/coffee making facilities. A small writing desk and chair, hair dryer, ironing facilities and water provided.

    Island Bay is a coastal suburb and half way between the city and airport. It has cafes, restaurants, boutique shops, supermarket and cinema. It has a local sandy beach which is safe for swimming and a marine reserve which is fantastic for diving or snorkeling.

  • This guest house is in an excellent location in Lyall Bay, close to the beach, several great restaurants and cafes, and there is plenty of easy street parking. The space is very clean and well-appointed, with a very comfortable bed, spacious living area and well-stocked kitchenette. Richard and Angie were quick to communicate and were very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend this place!

  • This is an adorable little retreat; compact, clean, and every amenity thought of. We had a little trouble with the internet but they fixed it as soon as they could and were very apologetic and compensatory. I had a lovely time there, they were helpful but discreet. Would stay again.

    Set among a gorgeous location in Houghton Bay. Our place is a stone's throw from the stunning south coast beaches of Wellington. Just a 7 minute drive to Wellington International airport and 10 minutes to the CBD. This self contained studio is cozy and comfortable for those with a short term stay in Wellington. The space: With the ocean at your door stop, this is a great ground floor studio crash pad. No doubt you will be out exploring the beauty this coast can offer.
    A cosy studio, great for singles or couples.
    We are right on the water among Taputeranga Marine Sanctuary on the border of Houghton Bay and Island Bay in Wellington City. There is a lovely coastal walk that will take you in either direction. The road we are on is a main road and both pedestrian and road traffic can be heavy at times, so please take care in the area.
  • Awesome little spot right on the south coast. Super quiet and private while still being handy to everything. Easy to check in and communication was always quick.

    Liam2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This was a very nice space in a beautiful location, overlooking the ocean. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Wellington.

  • Lovely studio to unwind in the evenings away from the bustle of the city. Bus ride into the city is a leisurely 15 minute walk along the shore. The road is a bit busy, so be careful whilst crossing. The studio is well maintained and ideal for a couple or solo traveller. Jennifer was quick to respond to queries, it was a pity we didn't get to say hi in person. All in all a great stay. Thank you Jennifer.

    Close to the city, overlooking the open sea. Double room & bed in sunny 3bedroom timber, Art Deco house from 1939, "sitting in the sky".

Guests might be staying in the third room. The house has double glazing in all rooms and central heating, with own gas heater in each room and a gas fireplace in the lounge.

  • Great place, amazing view

    Damien2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • For us it was a toss-up between staying at a hotel in downtown Wellington or staying at Silke's place. We were so glad we chose Silke! For one thing, downtown Wellington is congested and apart from the waterfront, not very interesting architecturally. Silke's place has the most incredible views over the ocean and is close to a wonderful beach on Lyall Bay where you can stroll and watch dolphins play with the surfers. Beyond that, Silke is an amazing host who is generous with her space including a well-equipped kitchen where there are dedicated shelves for the guests. She provides a wonderful guidebook with her personal insights into things to see and do in the area. The place is in a great location for both getting downtown ( about 15-20 minutes by car) and exploring many beautiful spots on the coast near Wellington like the nearby coastal marine park.

    Charles2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We unfortunately only spent one night here but it was an fantastic experience. Silke is an very welcoming host and we loved her apartment with such a stunning view. We had some really cool conversations and got great travel advice from Silke. All in all a fantastic host, would come back again for sure. Highly recommended!

    Julian2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Silke is lovely, accommodating and very knowledgeable about Wellington. Her place has wonderful views and is clean.

    Jordan2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place. Good communication from host

    Jeremy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding view! Cousy, beautiful house ! Extremely clean, tidy and well decorated! Our room had everything we needed and some more (I loved the little treats inside a beautiful pāua shell on top of the bed). The host, Silke, is very welcoming and gave us real gems regarding food and places to go. I can tell she’s the kind of person you can talk about pretty much everything and have a great time! I’ll definitely recommend to any friends we have in town!

    Lucas2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Silke’s place has the most AMAZING VIEW and more important she is a WONDERFUL HOST! She was so kind to help me out when in need, gave us great tips where to eat at and things to do, had intriguing, enjoyable conversation, very hospitable, and she is a talented author of the book “New Zealand My Adopted Home”. I would highly recommend Silke!

    Janice2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning view of the bay, simple private room with shared bathroom, very close proximity to surf beach/ restaurants, pedestrian walking path down to beach and transportation, including airport. We walked to airport, which took 45 mins (down hill and nice stoll along beachfront). Silke is a great communicator (quick responder) and accommodating, she gave us great tips. Her place and hospitality really made you feel like we were living like a locals. Highly recommended, cant beat the view on the balcony!!

    A self contained, private comfortable sunny apartment within our house. One large living bedroom space with couch, table, desk and a queen size bed. A separate kitchenette with fridge, microwave and 2 hotplates. En suite bathroom.
    A totally self contained very comfortable studio. As Lyall Bay is so close to the airport and the city this is a perfect location for short term accommodation for tourists and business travellers alike,
    Lyall Bay is a seaside suburb with a great surf beach and several cafes and restaurants. It is also close to the marine reserve and not far from the seal colony. There are plenty of elevated bush walks near the studio apartment with lovely views for keen walkers and trampers and of course swimming and picnics at Princess Bay watching the sun set.
  • Was great to meet Elizabeth and John , really nice and helpful couple . The house itself is an amazing piece of architecture and was great to be able to stay in part of it . Great location as close to the sea and perfect spot explore Lyall Bay.

    Adam2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeths apartment was really stylish - if you appreciate furniture classics (eg. designer chairs) you will love it!! A bit outside of the city, which was perfect for us - surrounded by the beach, mountains and can watch planes taking off/landing over the water. Communication was easy and Elizabeth provided us with some recommendations for dinner and hikes. I really recommend you staying there! :)

    Carola2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay on a visit to Wellington... here you can kick back and relax in Elizabeths amazing apartment with very thing you could need being supplied. It cool to hang out in Lyall Bay too as you get the beach life, with great views and good eateries & cafes. But am also a short ride away by the bus or Uber to the hustle & Bustle of the CBD.

    Cassandra2019-12-11T00:00:00Z

    A restored, renovated large, sky lighted, double glazed and heated native timber Villa, close to public transport, the city centre, the airport, and parks.

    A restored, renovated large, sky lighted, double glazed native timber Villa, with plenty of original features and wooden furniture. Double glazed, installed, heated and ventilation system to keep the interior warm and dry. Large living and outdoor area including a covered patio to allow for BBQing in all seasons and weather. A lazy, large luxurious, light and warm and renovated Villa, all very easily enjoyed.
    Close to Wellington’s Airport and located on the North Island’s and Wellington’s rugged and raw southern coast line, which is a beauty to behold. Island Bay has a beach within walking distance, and there a golf course in Island Bay and nature walks linking Island Bay with Wellington and the wider Wellington Region. A supermarket is within five minutes of the Villa, as well as various cafes, eateries, restaurants and local bars.
  • Stephens place is excellent. Rooms are very spacious and clean along with comfortable beds. The shower is amazing. You have everything what you need in the house.

  • The title of this accommodation states it: better then a hotel. We liked the spaciousness of the bedroom and bathroom with two hand basins. We were looking for a place accepting dogs and found it there: there was even a dog bed and a fenced outdoor area. The location was close to the places we were going to visit, therefore very convenient. The hosts were very friendly and uncomplicated. We will book it again if we travel to Wellington in the future.

    Christa2019-12-26T00:00:00Z

It was sparkling clean with all other amenities provided with an A+.

  • Fay's house is a great place to stay. It was as described and very comfortable. We appreciated the facilities and starter supplies, there was milk in the fridge and coffee, dish washer capsules etc. which makes the early part of a stay much easier. We were visiting family and grandchildren in Wellington and this was a great base. Recommended and we will happily stay here again.

    Brian And Rose2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • This beautiful cottage is like a breath of fresh air - clean, bright and very comfortable. It exceeded our expectations. The setting is fantastic and it is everything it claims to be and more. When we come back to Wellington - the dates will be determined as to when this house is available - it’s that good.

    Gillian2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    Dave2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Linda and Poco have a cozy, and very well appointed, little coastal retreat that is just close enough to the centre of Wellington to be handy. Since the bus stop was so near by, we took the short bus ride into the city to avoid the hassle of driving and parking. That gave us the chance to enjoy a leisurely walk part way back home on the Southern Walkway. If we'd had a bit more time to spare we'd have stayed another night (and day) and explored the area around this coastal retreat some more.

    Robert2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was seriously the cutest little Airbnb and was in a perfect location for us. Linda and Poko were so willing to help and made sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. We were able to relax in the hot tub as well as use their snorkeling gear to adventure out in the ocean. It was so amazing! I could not have asked for a better place to stay.

    Abigail2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful find! Great location, a peaceful retreat yet Wellington centre is on the doorstep. Spotlessly clean, a super comfy bed and lots of thoughtful touches make this a beautiful place to stay. Linda & Poko are great hosts and very welcoming. It was a fab treat using the spa, the views are amazing, particularly in the evening or at sunset. We’ll definitely stay again on our next Wellington visit. Highly recommend!

  • We loved our time at Linda’s Airbnb, it was so comfortable, cozy, homey and we were in need of nothing! Many amenities. Linda sent a message to see if we needed anything. The location across from the ocean was beautiful! If we return to Wellington, we will book here again.

  • The photos did not serve this beautiful place justice ! The view was even more amazing in real life. The kitchen had everything we needed and the space was great size. Fortunate to have Wellington on a beautiful weekend, thank you so much for having all the amenities of home. Highly recommend this space, super easy to get to the city but far enough away you feel relaxed and can enjoy a break with a wine and a stunning view ! Just remember to tell your Uber driver to take you up the hill if you have luggage!

    1980s Lockwood house. Great for small families and young children. The space is a bit small for 4 adults but could be discussed prior to booking. Views to the airport and Cook strait. Flat drive on. Bus stop to the city and railway via hospital the zoo. Short drive from airport. Safe in earthquakes though quite noisy in a storm. Large windows let in natural light. Safe fencing and gates. Small garden. Log fire, heatpump, Portacot, high chair, toys and books. Quiet area with private aspect.
    Open plan modern kitchen lounge. Living area carpeted. Kitchen tiled. Chapel ceilings giving a very spacious feel and sliding doors maximizing space as well. Very roomy main bedroom with a queen bed. The second bedroom is small when the trundler bed is set up. Wardrobes and drawers cleared for guest use. Large conservatory, (just mind your head if you're tall). This is a comfortable, warm, well-maintained property set up as a holiday home.
    Nice neighborhood. Great views of the harbour and the airport from View Rd. Close to swimming beaches and Kilbirnie shopping centre which hss a Countdown and a Pak n Sav supermarket. There is the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre at Kilbirnie also which is great but you would still need a reasonable walk down and up a steep hill unless you have a car.
  • Wonderful house and host Anita! Fantastic stay here with everything we needed and more. Lots of great little touches and handy tips. Perfectly set up for travelling with a little one too, with high chair, cot and toys/books galore. We walked to the zoo as the weather was amazing (about 40min) and it exceeded my expectations too, great day out and super easy to bus back.

    Laura2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great stay at Anita's place. Anita has everything you probably even need. The location is great with short walk to Lyall Bay and Houghton Bay beach. The sunset view was incredible viewing mountains of South Island.

Heaps of space for three adults to spread out and relax. Lots of information provided of the local area and amenities and good explanation of everything we needed to know in a little folder. So close to the city and transport just outside the door. Will definitely be back. :-)

    Judith2019-03-18T00:00:00Z

  • Alex is a great host, very relaxed and always willing to help and give advice. We shared an interest in the arts so was an ideal host for me! there is a bus outside the door but only a 5-10 minute walk down the hill to get a very frequent no 1 bus service. It is so close to the airport by car which is fantastic. Couldn't have asked for more.

    A restored, renovated large, sky lighted, double glazed and heated native timber Villa, close to public transport, the city centre, the airport, and parks. You’ll love my place because of the high ceilings, the kitchen, and the comfy bed. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
    A restored, renovated large, sky lighted, double glazed native timber Villa, with plenty of original features and wooden furniture. Double glazed, installed, heated and ventilation system to keep the interior warm and dry. Large living and outdoor area including a covered patio to allow for BBQing in all seasons and weather. A lazy, large luxurious, light and warm and renovated Villa, all very easily enjoyed.
    Close to Wellington’s Airport and located on the North Island’s and Wellington’s rugged and raw southern coast line, which is a beauty to behold. Island Bay has a beach within walking distance, and there a golf course in Island Bay and nature walks linking Island Bay with Wellington and the wider Wellington Region. A supermarket is within five minutes of the Villa, as well as various cafes, eateries, restaurants and local bars.

    Take a walk by the wild side. In winter the south coast seas are wonderful and you can walk to the seals at Red Rocks. In summer we have gorgeous sunsets. We have a picture theater and a pub close by. And it's only 20 minutes to Wellington city.
    Our house is right along the sea shore and there are lovely coastal walks along the beach and the rocky shore. The bedroom looks out onto our cliff face garden. It has double doors that open up to a deck, a real sunny spot for many months of the year. The room has a double bed and cupboard space, a mirror and cabinet. We have natural wooden floors made of Matai, a native NZ Timber which gives a warm and friendly feel to our house. I have a spare room upstairs and can accommodate two extra people. On the sea front there is a living and dining area with fantastic unrestricted views of the bay. Breakfast is served here or on the patio at the back. A secluded deck at the top of the garden with amazing views has a barbecue that you are welcome to use. It is a perfect spot to sit and relax with a glass of wine.
    Island Bay is a relaxed seaside community. A friendly and safe neighbourhood. The seaside is constantly changing. Seals, Dolphins, and Orcas have been spotted in the bay. if you are lucky, you might spot something too. Early risers can go for a great run along the shore. In the evening a walk along the bay for a gorgeous sunset over the South Island . In the winter the view of the snowy mountain range, the Kaikouras, is spectacular.
  • I had a truly memorable time staying with Francesca and Dolf. They are super super hosts and treated me from the start as more of a friend than an airbnb guest. I much enjoyed our chats over delicious and varied breakfasts putting the world to rights, meeting their family and friends (a special mention to grandson Otto) and the trips we made together to the City and the Miramar Peninsula. Their invaluable advice on places to visit kept me fully occupied during my four weeks stay and I loved walking along the seafront of picturesque Island Bay back to their house at the end of each day. I was very sad to leave in the end, but console myself with the thought that I might be able to return again one day.

    Richard2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Gerald2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Francesca's place was a great spot to stay for our visit to Wellington. So friendly and accommodating, Francesca provided everything we needed from great local tips and a pre loaded snapper card for transport in and out of Wellington to a fantastic breakfast every morning. Their home is beautiful and we felt very welcomed staying. I would definitely stay here again and can't thank Francesca enough!

    Caitlin2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional AirBNB -- friendly and thorough hosts who seem to really enjoy having guests in their lovely home right on the water in Island Bay. Prepare for the treat of incredible breakfast, easy buses to the main part of the city, wonderful walks along the water, and a super comfortable bed.

    Lydia2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Francesca and Dolf are wonderful hosts who made our stay very special. The breakfast at the dining table over looking the ocean was splendid with Chrismassy touches. Easy to get into the city by bus and lovely to walk along the esplanade. Thank you so much.

    Jules2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • I have to say, Francesca and her husband are probably the best host I ever met. They are not only professional(well-prepared bedroom, bus card, and deeply understanding for the city they live)but also hospitable with real enthusiasm and genuine. They showed me around the environment including their beautiful garden (on a mild hill back of the house)at the first day I stepped in their lovely house and gave me all the travel information I might need. Even now I am already home, I still miss all the things we did together, seeing the sun falling into the see from the hill height , having nice breakfast in the morning with beautiful music , and of course, their abundant traveling experience made the table chat much more fun. Again, this is a wonderful airbnb run by the best host!

    Elsa2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful historic little house right on the water with a fantastic view of the ocean. There are regular bus connections to the city center or, if you have enough of the hustle and bustle, you can simply enjoy the peace and quiet on the beach. The room was clean, comfortable and the hosts very attentive. If I return to NZ I will definitely come back.

  • My Family and me had a Great time at Francescas place. Beautiful room, a lovely garden and such a stunning view to from their living room to the sea. Francesca and Dolf are so welcoming, they help you to find out what to do in Wellington and make a delicious muesli. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this place.

    A restored, renovated large, sky lighted, double glazed and heated native timber Villa, close to public transport, the city centre, the airport, and parks. You’ll love my place because of the high ceilings, the kitchen, and the comfy bed. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).
    A restored, renovated large, sky lighted, double glazed native timber Villa, with plenty of original features and wooden furniture. Double glazed, installed, heated and ventilation system to keep the interior warm and dry. Large living and outdoor area including a covered patio to allow for BBQing in all seasons and weather. A lazy, large luxurious, light and warm and renovated Villa, all very easily enjoyed.
    Close to Wellington’s Airport and located on the North Island’s and Wellington’s rugged and raw southern coast line, which is a beauty to behold. Island Bay has a beach within walking distance, and there a golf course in Island Bay and nature walks linking Island Bay with Wellington and the wider Wellington Region. A supermarket is within five minutes of the Villa, as well as various cafes, eateries, restaurants and local bars.
  • The place was clean, big rooms and super cool bathroom. I love the shower. King size and soft bed. Highly recommend to other travellers.
