Paua Cottage was amazing! The view was great, the house itself was clean and had everything needed and more! Ben and Angel had thought of so many little details, it made everything just so easy. I can’t fault one single thing about the weekend stay. Thank you so much!

Paua Cottage is a real gem in Khandallah, Wellington. There are so many positives and reasons to stay here: the hosts are so lovely and have added extra little touches which make your stay extra special, they are prompt in their replies and their check-in procedure is flawless. The accommodation is spotless and has everything you need plus more for your stay. The views over the water, hillside and Westpac Stadium (Cake Tin) were so lovely during the day and even more spectacular during the night. We would definitely rebook the Paua Cottage on our next trip back to Wellington.

The neighbourhood: Khandallah is one of the more affluent, upmarket and safer areas of Wellington city. With its bush surroundings, sunshine soaked hillsides, and city harbour views, it is truly the best spot to be in Wellington. The area is also very elevated. At 452 feet above sea level (138 Meters) you will enjoy some of the most amazing views of Wellington.
Details of pets on property: We have 3 curious cats that like to wander the section during the day. You may see them in the garden occasionally, but they will not enter the cottage.
Details of surveillance on property: A Ring video doorbell is installed at the front door to the cottage, for security and convenience. Guests can press the doorbell anytime, day or night, to speak to us no matter where we are. We value guest privacy, therefore the doorbell does not continuously record and it is pointed away from the cottage itself. When activated by motion, the camera records a short clip of those entering or leaving the front door, which is automatically deleted after 30 days.
