Welcome to my home just steps from a Wellington Harbour beach and on the direct route of the Airport Flyer bus. Just down the road from the Petone railway station, with 12 minutes access south to Wellington City center and ferries to Picton on South Island, or bus/train to the Wairarapa Vineyards 70 minutes north.

There are several other reviews on my AirBnB listing. Prices here revert to Summer rates in November
My character "villa-ette" is a historic first settler, boutique styled high-stud semi called "Lalapanzi - place of rest". There is a cute rose garden out front, and a secluded back courtyard-in-progress to catch the afternoon sun.
The guest room has two very comfortable single beds with electric blankets, and a dressing/work table with chair or padded stool. The same room becomes the double room, with the very heavy beds creating a king bed with king linen and underlay. You play my piano or relax in chairs , and enjoy the lovely double bay window. There is fast broadband access and free wifi, carpeting, side tables and lamps.
Includes a help-yourself continental breakfast . The living room (photo) with TV and couch and dining table is for your personal use - I use a separate workroom.
Enjoy this welcoming, very historical Wellington central accommodation, a few steps away from the Settlers' Museum on the Esplanade beach, and just seconds to the popular Jackson St (the Devonport of the South !) - a location for the wine and dine crowd, pubs, coffee aficionados, boutique and craft shoppers, as well as the local 6 screen Lighthouse Cinema, and historical Stansborough Weavers - makers of Tolkien film garments.
Hutt River Valley leads to the hinterland with walk and cycle tracks, visits to Tolkien film sites , where river or sea fishing is popular, and swimmers of all preferences are catered for, including indoor pools. Bus and train stops are in Jackson St to access Wellington city, Hutt Valley or the Wairarapa vinyard playground.
