  • Help


    Nothing too onerous, i am a keen gardener, the man of the house likes to potter and needs some help with firewood and a bit of concreting. No special skills required but a happy willing disposition would be appreciated.

    A charming and roomy self contained sleep-out. We like to share our table and i am a good cook, but visitors could be self sufficient if they wanted to be.

    What else ...

    Visitors are close to the rail line and bus routes to Wellington, Upper and Lower Hutt cities, we are happy to drop off or pick up from the station if necessary but it is only a 25 min walk . Other visitors have found getting to Wellington easy and it is a fun city to visit and explore.
