What a great find. top of Cuba street, very quiet even if close to the Motorway entrance and very clean and roomy and comfortable, everything you need. Close to all the eateries and all of downtown Wellington. Comfy bed, home away from home. The host was a great guy, nothing was too hard, helped out with a change on booking, and made sure we had all the details for our arrival. Also very private with a cosy courtyard, excellent heating. We will be back

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!

My cottage was clean and very comfortable, fantastic location, easy instructions to access the cottage on arrival and the lock box to leave my gear once I had checked out was brilliant. I loved sitting in the courtyard with my morning coffee and listening to the tui in the kowhai. I’ll definitely rebook for my next trip to Wellington.
