    We enjoyed our stay here. Cottage cosy, clean and everything we needed. Location was PERFECT! Right at the top of Cuba Street, close to restaurants, cafes and bars. Close to motorway for departure. We walked everywhere. Total recommend. Will definitely use again next time in Wellington. Thank you. Just one thing... we didn’t have any teaspoons.. thought it a bit odd but we managed without lol!

    Great comfortable place in a great location

    Great accommodation! Huge apartment with a kitchen, living room, bedroom (that can be closed off). This far exceeded my expectations. Would definitely stay here again. Great location as well, easily walkable to everything yet still quiet.

    Location just off upper Cube Street was ideal for getting around the city without using the car. Great little bakery just out the door, they make a gorgeous hot chocolate! If you can't cope with city noise, I suggest foam ear plugs.

    Perfect ending for our north island tour. Clean, convenient, and comfortable, with parking right out front. We were able to explore Wellington, get our travel chaos sorted, and enjoy a craft beer from the chill place next door within range of our baby monitor... don't get the chance to do that often. They also went totally above and beyond what I've experienced from a host/proprietor... Dean, if you read this, Thanks again, you're a friggin legend.
