  • Description


    We are a family of 4; Em and Wayne, Fynn (12) and Isla (6). We live just outside Wellington, New Zealand. We're just a 25 min train ride from Wellington, the coolest little capital. We love our part of the world and would love to share it with others. You would be able to enjoy 360 degree views from our turret in our home or enjoy the spa pool as much as you'd like. We can offer you your own (single) room, free WIFI and meals. We're also keen travellers and just back from a family trip to Europe. We're close to the sea, city, beach, train station, beautiful views and live in a great neighbourhood. Whether you can offer help with making our gardens beautiful or help Wayne with his renovation projects, we'd love to hear from you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There's so much to do and see locally. We are close to a train station which can take you directly into Wellington City. Plenty of galleries, museums, cultural interest places to visit in Wellington. We have great walks and scenery to take in locally. Ideal if you love beach, we're just a 5 minute drive! For spectacular views you must try the Paekakariki Escarpment Track. With advanced planning you can take a boat out to Kapiti Island, a nature reserve and a spectacular place to see a vast array of New Zealand native birds. We are only a short drive 'over the hill' to the Wairarapa or 'wine country', to name just a few highlights.
