Description
The Space

This is a private room and bathroom within a large family home and not in the same part of the house as our bedrooms. There is a family of four (two small children) and we come and go during the day. This accommodation would be best suited for someone who would prefer not to socialise with the host and will spend most of their time out and about.

Guest Access

You have access to the bedroom and private bathroom.

Interaction with Guests

I'm more than happy to help you with sightseeing queries etc if I'm around.

The Neighborhood

This is a truly special part of Wellington: away from the city noise yet so close to the CBD. Native birds from Zealandia fly overhead to the Botanic Gardens, which are steps away from the front door. You can stroll into the city centre through Victoria University, or via the cable car. Less than 10 minutes' away is Kelburn shopping centre with cafes, a really nice pub, a mini supermarket, German bakery, deli, butcher, antique store ...

Getting Around

The cable car to access shopping on Lambton Quay is 5 minutes' walk via North Terrace at the end of Ngaio Road, or a slightly longer walk through the Botanical Gardens. The cable car journey takes around 10 mins and departs around every 10 mins. The Cuba Street part of the CBD is about a 20 minute walk.

Other Things to Note

Cooking facilities are not available, sorry - although of course you're welcome to make a tea or plunger coffee in our kitchen. You may hear children during the day, but they will not be in your space! The bedroom is not modern and the walls are the original native wood sarking and so look a bit rough and rustic. The bed is very comfy! The bathroom is also not modern but the fittings are clean and the shower has good water pressure. Not sure about the previous owner's taste in paint colours ;) Parking: No problem right outside the door. Because we are close to University it costs $7.50 per day on week days between 8am - 6pm (NOTE: FIRST TWO HOURS FREE). It's also free at weekends. Please ask me if you need a hairdryer or iron.

Place's rules
Please make sure the entrance door is shut at all times so children don't run out.

About Melinda
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
