Feel at home in Wellington ❤ 2 bedrooms, self-contained

Kia ora, we're Mike and Lynette! We have lived in Wellington since 1988 (except for 4 years on a diplomatic posting to Washington DC) and have enjoyed welcoming guests here for the past 4 years.

Our modern, 2 bedroom, self-contained flat offers comfort, style and convenience in the peaceful, quiet suburb of Churton Park. You can just relax with all the comforts of home: a full kitchen, central heating, free WIFI via a fast optical fibre network, current technology, modern bathroom, comfortable beds, all with the added charm of vintage decor. Our flat is ideal for both long & short stays.

For longer stays we offer a 10% weekly discount and a 20% monthly discount.

We are here to help if needed, at the same time we don't want our guests to feel obligated to interact with us if they don't want to - you will be staying in your own private and separate apartment and not in our home, so it is totally your call how much interaction you have with us. We do usually welcome you in person upon arrival, and farewell you at the end of your visit. :-)

We are very easy to find, located just off State Highway 1. Just 12 minutes drive (in normal traffic) will have you in the CBD or at the ferry terminal. A bus stop is just around the corner if you don't want to drive into town.

The flat consists of two bedrooms, a bathroom, living/dining room, and kitchen with up to date electrical appliances and amenities. The flat is joined to our home, yet is situated so that guests have privacy with their own entrance.

We strive to be eco-friendly by providing as many zero-waste options as we can to help care for the environment.

Just around the corner, 5 minutes walk away, is Churton Park Village with a New World supermarket, cafe, pharmacy, and takeaway options.

The best BnB in Wellington, you don't need to think twice about what to bring with you. The pantry has everything you need for a couple of days and the fridge comes stocked with some goodies. You will sleep like a baby, the amenities are clean and the air is refreshing. Best of all, Lynette and Mike are incredibly kind and thoughtful. All in all, a weekend well spent for a family of 4!

Lynette and Mike are one of the best hosts we’ve ever had. The apartment has everything you need and is extremely clean, full of their passion and sincerity. The suburb is very quiet with stunning views, New World is within 5 minutes walk distance and other takeaways, pharmacy etc. Lynette provided us with useful tour guidance on a rainy & windy day and we did enjoy ourselves following her advice! Perfect stay, strongly recommended! Will definitely come back next time in Wellington.

The neighbourhood: We are located in the charming suburb of Churton Park in Wellington, just 12 minutes drive to central Wellington and the ferries. Although close to Wellington’s CBD, our neighbourhood has semi-rural views. You can sometimes hear the sheep and cows in the distance, as they graze on the nearby hills. The local Churton Park Village shopping centre (built in 2012) is just around the corner from our flat, less than 5 minutes walk away (or under a minute if driving!). The Village includes a supermarket, post office facilities, ATM, pharmacy, cafe, gift shop, beauty clinic, hairdresser, medical centre, fish and chip shop, and Indian food take-out.
Details of pets on property: We have a lovely fluffy ragdoll/birman cat, she is NOT allowed in the apartment, but you may see her wandering around outside.
