Places to stay in Breaker Bay
A private, fully self contained space in the delightfully quiet Breaker Bay with nearly all day sun, and sheltered from the elements. You'll have stunning, uninterrupted sea and mountain views, and close to the airport but without the noise! The studio is entirely self contained with your own private bathroom and full cooking facilities. We recently installed a luxurious hotsprings spa pool available for guest use, located in our private and secluded garden sheltered from the weather.
The Little Blue Penguin Studio is a very quiet, well appointed, fully self contained, private space that is warm and sheltered with stunning uninterrupted views across Breaker Bay and the rugged south coast. The Studio faces north and east so gets all day sun (opposite to northern hemisphere) from the early morning to early evening. The Studio is sheltered from the both the southerly and predominant northerly winds. The space is an open plan living and bedroom area with a fully equiped kitchenette with a refridgerator. The Studio is fully equipped with a Belling range stove (dual oven) with a four hob induction cooktop and rangehood. Attached to the living area is a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and handbasin, with a front loading high quality washing machine. The luxury shower we have installed has a high-flow rain head and separate hand shower. The shower is more luxurious than you would find in any 5* star hotel - so be prepared to enjoy it! Guests rave about our shower, the water pressure, and unlimited hot water from our continuous gas water heating system. On request, we provide luxurious quality Sheridan bathrobes that you are welcome to use - they're great for wearing to and from the spa pool. The studio living area is fully carpeted with a high capacity heatpump has been installed to keep you warm over the cooler months. In addition to the heatpump is a German LHZ electric radiator that is programmed to provide silent radiant heating during the night. The luxuriously comfortable queen size bed is fitted with the highest quality, Sheridan bedding, with a luxurious 100% goose feather and down duvet that is lightweight yet very warm and cosy. There are a set of drawers, a dining table and a wardrobe for you to use. You have unlimited high-flow hotwater from the infinity gas water heater which ensures your showers are just magical. The open plan living area has a lovely table for having breakfast at whilst enjoying the view outside across the bay. In the evening unwind and relax outside with a glass of wine with seaviews from the sheltered coutyard uti;lisiong the outdoor table and chairs. You have free access to our gigabit internet connection via ultrafast wifi so you'll have uninterrupted and unlimited internet access. As the Studio has a dedicated high-speed router you connect your PC, laptop to tablet via an ethernet cable for even faster connections - we have various ethernet adaptors available on request if you have an ipad or usb 3-c connections. There is a Nespresso Creatista coffee machine in the studio - we provide some capsules, but you may like to bring some of your own favourite capsules.

The bed and mattress is of very high quality so you're guaranteed and restful night's sleep. A new 49inch ultra high definition 4K television has been installed that has Netflix and New Zealand free to air television channels for viewing.

We are proud to say that The Little Blue Penguin Studio is the most well equipped Studio in Wellington with more amenities than any other similar Airbnb. The remainder of the property is shared with Raymond, your host, and Kelly the very loving and friendly dog who keeps watch over everything. Sometimes Meg, my partner's swedish valhund will be in the backyard with Kelly. They're both very friendly and welcoming!
Breaker Bay is a friendly community of approximately 200 people in a quiet and sheltered bay on Wellington's picturesque south coast that is very charming and considered the nicest beachside locality around Wellington. It offers opportunities for coastal walks, diving and kayaking right outside the front door. We have little blue penguins that nest all around Breaker Bay and if you go for a walk in the evening chances are you'll hear if not see them. The penguins are shy and do not like bright lights. We have had Orca regularly visit Breaker Bay, hunting and feeding in the sea directly in front of the house observed by guests on multiple occasions. Breaker Bay is: - located centrally on Wellington's infamous "around the bays" scenic route. - positioned midway along the stunning Eastern Walkway which is a Wellington "must-do" - home to Little Blue Penguins - frequented by pods of Orca and Dolphins We are within 5min walk of Wellington's most sheltered swimming beach that is also promoted as Wellington's only designated clothing optional beaches!Breaker Bay is close to the airport (5min drive) but because we are sheltered behind a hill we get absolutely no airport noise. There is very little road traffic on the Breaker Bay road - you're more likely to see and hear cyclists than you are cars. Walking distance to some of Wellington's most popular cafes: - Gypsy Kitchen - Sambal Malaysian cafe Close proximity as it's only a 5min drive to: - Wellington International airport (but we don't get any of the noise) - Maranui Cafe - Queen Sally's Diamond Deli - The Spruce Goose Restaurant - Elements Cafe - The Larder - Polo Cafe - Roxy Cinema - Weta Cave (home of the LOTR special effects) - Large marine reserve at the southern end of the bay offering spectacular snorkelling and shore diving. Dive the wreck of the F69! - Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre - Red Rocks with great diving, seal watching, running, and ing options Breaker Bay is east facing so we have the sun rising across the bay in the morning and get almost all day sun until early evening. The studio and entire property is positioned in a such a way that we are sheltered from cold southerly winds and the predominant north westerly winds that most other properties in Wellington are exposed to.
  • Great host, great location. Thoroughly recommend.

    Scott & Zuzana2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

  • Great spot in breaker bay, lovely character digs

    Richard2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful setting and still close to airport with easy bus commute /pleasant stroll downtown

    John2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • The Wellington coastline is the under-sold gem of our capital city. And Raymond's place - The Penguin's Nest, sits pride of place. It literally is nestled in the rocks and trees of his garden, up some wooden steps and overlooking a major Wellington seaway. It's cleverly designed and appointed, much the same as a yacht, with everything you need fitted in to the cabin. It's clean, quiet, private and comfortable. The small outdoor courtyard is still an unpolished diamond, but even so, it's a wonderful space in which to perch and watch the black back gulls soar and hover on the brisk Wellington wind.

    Tracy2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and exactly what you need for a weekend away

    Daniel2020-01-23T00:00:00Z

    Comfortable queen size bed in a sun filled bedroom with a pleasant outlook towards Evans Bay. Short distance to film studios and airport. The room is located on the top level of our three storey home. On the same level is our garage as well as your own private bathroom.
    The guest bedroom is located on the top storey of our 3 storey house. It has good storage as well as bedside table with lamp, desk and chair. The open plan living area (level 2) separates the guest bedroom from our private bedrooms on the lower level. The kitchen and laundry facilities can be made available for guests staying 5 nights or more. Arrangements can be made for guests with young children who require meals to be prepared for them.
    Located in the sunny hills of Strathmore we are a 15 minute drive to the city and 2 minutes to Wellington international airport and Miramar Links golf club. Weta Studios as well as many popular dining locations and Roxy Cinemas is a short 5 minute drive away. Ideal for guests who have contracts at the film studio as prior guests have found it only an easy walk away. 100m up the road there is access to the Eastern Walkway walking tracks.
  • Shin-Yis House is really cool house on top of the hill with great view over Miramar. She was very helpful with our check in and sent her dad with the key since we needed to check in at a very specific time. It is near to the airport and we were even able to walk to the airport with our suitcases, but keep the hill in mind. An Uber should be inexpensive and you can also take a bus, however. We would recommend staying there!

    Nadja2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Shin-Yi's place was in a beautiful location with lovely views over the city. The setup was comfortable and very private and quiet. It was located close to a wonderful labyrinth of paths in the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Shin-Yi and family were hospitable and offered helpful tips. I would highly recommend Shin-Yi's place.

    Anne2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very nice and comfortable stay in a beautiful house with a great view on the hillside. The check-in and out and communication was easy and the hosts adjusted to our time constraints and needs. Would recommend. Also close to the Airport!

  • This is an amazing place! The view is beautiful, close to the airport if you have a flight early in the morning like us and 10-15 min drive to the city centre. You will not regret booking it

  • Best yet. We were upgraded to the awesome Captain’s room & the view was fantastic. The BEST part was Raymond. Great tips, offers excursions which are listed on Air B&B. Love the towels, great bed I could not have asked for a more fun experience. We were disappointed when we wanted to stay another night and he was booked. Location is perfect as it is close to downtown but seems a million miles away. Super quiet. I would recommend anytime.

    Jack2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • It's our 2nd time staying at Miriam's place and it was just as good! We love the strong shower and the availability of a bath tub after a long drive. The thoughtful little touches provided made the place more comfortable and welcoming! Of course, the views from the bedrooms were simply astounding. Definitely highly recommended!

    Aby2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Miriam’s place is wonderful. It is on a hilltop, so you get views of the mountains and water from many angles. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was updated with great water pressure and there were snacks and breakfast items that helped us catch an early flight. She is also a very nice person and a caring host. I would highly recommend Miriam’s place.

  • I loved my stay at Ron and Jacqui’s funky studio. The space is sparkling clean, well equipped and with the coolest decor and artwork imaginable. I spent five nights and was very comfortable. Great bed, smart bathroom and all you need in a kitchen too. The walks on the cliffs nearby were the perfect wind down. Would recommend this space and would love to return in future.

    Close to the airport, Miramar village and Weta Workshop. On bus routes to the central city, Te Papa and Wellington museums and art galleries, Wellington Aquatic Centre, ASB Sports Centre, Zealandia Ecosanctuary, Parliament, and central railway station. Modern two-storey, 3-bedroom townhouse with free-to-air TV and wifi internet access, lots of books for those who prefer their entertainment on the quiet side, piano for musing on, small private deck.
    Light and airy private bedroom with wardrobe and built in shelves, toilet next door, upstairs to bathroom with bath, shower, hair dryer and heated towel rail.
    Unusually for Wellington, the immediate neighbourhood is flat and an easy walk to shopping centre, buses, and the airport. It's suburban with separate single-storey houses mostly around 70-80 years old, with pockets of 2-storey townhouses built in the last 15 years. The harbour park is about 10 minutes walk away, and you can sit and watch the waves and ferries while planes land over your head - a favourite pastime for my children when little.
  • Very convenient location in walking distance from WLG. Its the perfect spot for a stopover in Welllington with public bus stops less than half a block away from the property. Maryanne is the ideal Airbnb host, she's an absolute pleasure to chat with and made my stay both comfortable and memorable.

  • Fantastic hosts! They went the extra mile to help when our flights were cancelled we needed find somewhere to stay and most places were booked out. So close to the airport and yet we felt away in the bush. $11 Uber ride. We had fun roasting marshmallows and enjoyed stunning views. Very relaxing while we waited for the storm to pass. Thank you we will visit again.

    ‘The Lighthouse’ is a super quiet, cosy guest suite in our friendly family home, named for the 9 beacons / lighthouses close by. We are 3 mins drive from Wellington airport on the lovely, creative Miramar Peninsula, home of Weta Studios. Beautiful Breaker Bay is behind us, and Seatoun beach and wharf just down the road. 15 mins (non-rush hour) and 30 mins (rush hour) by car to the city centre. Kayaking, biking, cliff and ridge walks – the real NZ seaside experience!
    We have a comfortable and private double room with its own ensuite. We work from home so are on site at our fairly compact home. However we are friendly and respectful - we'll do all we can to ensure you have a really nice stay. One of the things we love here is the ridge walk behind the house which has spectacular views of Wellington harbour. And the fact that our beach and cute village is so low key and unspoilt - lovely coast walks, icecreams and fish and chips, plus coffee & two places where you can eat out - Arcimboldi Cafe and Little Sprig bar / bistro.
    Our neighbourhood is quiet and friendly. There is no traffic noise at night. The area is extremely scenic with lovely views from the ridge walk behind us, and the sea literally at the end of the street.
  • Anne's place is lovely and inviting. Anne is an illuminating, kind, generous and intelligent host who made me feel instantly welcomed and cared about.

    Heidi2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space,so close to everything I needed. Walked to breakfast and Worser Bay several times. Lovely quiet neighbourhood super friendly and helpful host

    Amanada2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Anne is a really nice and helpful person and the place ist perfect for visiting Wellington. I would highly recommend this place and hopefully I will come back once a day. Thanks Anne for hosting us.

    Ulrike2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • If you like the city but also the nature and beaches, then the place is perfect. The airport is 10 min bus, and cbd about 40 min. The beach is 10 min walk. You have a private part of the house for you only, very comfy. Anne and his husband are very friendly and will give you any info you need to go around or to visit the city. I recommend

    Nathalie2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Anne for making our staying amazing. Everything was mint and very warm hospitality.

    Davide2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect a nice and clean private area (bed & bathroom) of a lovely home with great hospitality and communal kitchen. Well recommended!

    Tony2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Anne’s place. Anne and her family are very friendly and helpful. The sea is just at the end of the street and the view from the dining room is amazing. The parking on the street was without problems, plenty of spaces around. The bed was comfortable and clean. Too bad our stay was so short and we didn’t have more time to chat with Anne and her family.

    Filip2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Anne and Gerard were lovely hosts. Gerard picked me up from the airport. Room was comfortable and clean with its own amenities in the same hall. The perfect place if you’re out and about. Location is not so near the city if that’s important to you but close to the ocean and beautiful rugged coast line. I really enjoyed my stay thank you.

    You will have your own living room as well as your own seperate bathroom. There is no kitchen that can be used but a toaster, fridge, microwave and kettle are there for your convenience. The Airport is nearby and the Strathmore shops are just a short walk. Please be aware there is no parking up the drive availiable and that the driveway is very very steep. You cannot drive up the drive for unloading. If you are not good by foot this will be a challenge! There are off street car parks nearby.
    You have stunning views over the Peninsula, Lyall Bay, Hataitai and much more from the living room. The rest of the view is into our nice and green garden. When you have managed to come up the drive there are a 12 steps but inside the apartment is one level. The door has a digital lock so no worrying about who has the key. We own a cat and a dog that are allowed in the AirBNB part of the house when it is not rented out. We also have 2 kids so we do have toys availiable if they are well looked after. The garden area is for our private use and in respect of our neighbours we would appreciate if there are no loud conversations outside after 10PM when coming back home. It is a very quiet area and you can expect to relax here. Smoking and vaping is prohibited inside and outside of the property. The fire place is not to be used by the guests and will be lit by us during the colder autumn and winter months and the wood will be topped up by us as well. So from 5PM-10PM we will access the living area from time to time as the fireplace heats the whole house (not during spring/summer). If you are planning to stay longer we will need to leave the door between the lower and the upper level open in order for us to get some heat from the fireplace as well. The upper level of the house is where we live so if there are any questions we are right there. Please be respectful of the electricity and water that you use and turn off lights when not needed. The house is fully insulated so very nice and warm but if you still need a heater please ask us. We have a DVS System therefore the place is very dry. In Strathmore Park as well as Miramar and Seatoun there are so many lovely takeaway places and you have your own dining table to enjoy them on. The table can be used as a desk for business travellers. There will be tea and coffee as well as 1 litre of milk free of charge (milk only on arrival). As a good start to your day we will provide Toast, Margerine, Jam and Muesli. The bed is equipped with an innersprung mattress, mattress protector and Sleepyhead Multizone Memory Foam Topper for your comfort. The air bed is a double size, the floor mattress is a King Single and there is a port a cot and a toddler bed available.
    It is a very quiet neighbourhood so please be mindfull of this.
  • Great hosts and a great place. Highly recommend!

    Malik2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! We had a whole floor to ourselves, the views are great, the bed is comfy, and the bathroom is sparkling clean. Florian and Silke provided us with a portable cot and a baby high chair for our little one, which made staying away from home a lot easier for her.

    Konstantin2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts and great accommodation! The location is very nice and central. We felt very comfortable.

    Kira2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a gread time at Silke's and Florians home and would always come back. Both are super friendly, helpful and always open for a small chat. Silke offered our little one some toys and also took us with her to a music and play group for kids. The unit is very clean and cozy. Also putting the dishes in their dishwasher made the stay even more relaxing. Thanks for this pleasant stay!

    Sindy2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • I would like to preface this by saying that this review is written to reflect much of what is already stated in the details of the listing. However, I am aware that many people do not necessarily read the details and instead rely on the reviews. (like myself :)!) My husband and I stayed here for a couple weeks, b/c we had to wait to move into our new apartment in Wellington. The hosts were incredibly helpful and empathetic to our situation and even let us store some of our boxes during our stay. They even helped us move some of the boxes! In short, Florian and Silke are kind and helpful people and are attentive hosts. This was a stressful time for my husband and I, so we appreciated all the help they offered. It's important to read the details of this listing - if you do that, your expectations of the place should be met. For instance, the driveway is very steep, and no you cannot drive up it. That is accurate - and rightly emphasized in the title. Also, this is a family home with young children, and therefore as with all family homes with small children, this means you will hear them from time to time. This unit is also in the lower level of the family home where the heat supply (wood furnace) is located. Therefore, if it is cold, the host will be downstairs in the evenings for a short period to start the fire. Please note that you will not be cold in the evenings - it is toasty warm! And just an FYI - it's about a 10 minute walk to the bus station and a 15-20 minute bus ride into town. That said, it is very close to the airport which is super convenient.

    April2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy spot for chilling, great hospitality, short steep walk but not a problem. Spacious and clean!

    Kim2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Florian and Silke were amazing hosts! I extended my stay twice! Which says it all I guess. The bread they buy is very good quality as are all the amenities! If you need something else and ask them they will go the extra mile to provide it for you! It was spotlessly clean and very nice and warm! I can really recomend staying with this lovely family. The driveway will keep you very fit but if I can manage you can, too! Thanks again!

    Inge2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was so lovely staying here again. The kids are very well behaved and the dog is very friendly, too. It's a great spot to watch the planes land and take off and you can even see Lyall Bay and watch the waves. Thanks again!

    Enjoy the comfy guest bedroom of a cute lived-in 2-bedroom home with stunning sea view & bush walks yet only 5 minutes drive from the airport, great cafes, the Weta Cave & the best Art Deco cinema in NZ. Double bed, shared bathroom. 3 min walk to city bus.
    Come and stay in the sunny guest bedroom of this cute 1940's home. If you would like to combine Wellington's most beautiful coastal walks and nature with the opportunity to experience the city, this location is for you. The house has unrestricted views out over Wellington heads, and across to the ever-changing colours of the Orongorongo ranges - it's a beautiful view to soak up as you watch ships sail by. If you don't have your own car, a regular bus to the city is 3 minutes walk away. One of the city's most spectacular walks - the Eastern walkway - is 5 minutes from the door. If you are two friends (not a couple), there is a spare mattress and bedding which can go on the floor. Note that this would be a "cosy" arrangement as the bedroom is medium sized. The house and kitchen is mostly in original condition and is clean but is lived-in.
    The house looks out over Wellington's spectacular south coast and bush and was originally built during WWII for military observers to watch shipping movements. Since 1946 it has only had two owners and is mostly in its original form. It has a really nice feel and a big front deck where you can soak up the view and watch the free range chooks.
  • Tania is a fantastic host, and her cosy home definitely has the best views in Wellington! She is full of tips and advice for exploring the local area. This is by far our favorite Airbnb we have ever stayed in!

    Sarah2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Tania’s beautiful abode sit perched overlooking the stunning sea and mountain backdrop. A total tranquil place with an equally cool host in Tania who was always quick to respond and offered exceptional help

    Tarek2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Tania is a lovely host and her place is cosy and comfy. She made me feel very welcome in her gorgeous cottage with spectacular views.

    Maddie2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Tania is an excellent host. She is warm, friendly, and hospitable. She is good to talk with and also respects your space. The house is excellent, warm, and has a feel of being a home, which is nice. The view may well be the best I have ever seen! Today I saw a wild rabbit on the lawn which was special. A great place to be.

    Paul2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tanias home is as cozy and comfortable as it promises to be. The view is amazing and Tania is a considerate and warm host. She offered lots of information about sights and worthwhile trips.

    Franziska2019-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a super nice 1 month stay at Tania’s ! House is really charming and lovely, the sea view is breathtaking and enjoyable especially when the sun shows up. Room and equipment totally match the description. Tania is a very welcoming host, really helpful and will provide you good tips to discover Wellington and its must do. We definitely recommend and thank Tania for welcoming us that way 😀

  • Couldn’t recommend this room enough after staying with Tania and her little dog Alice for the last 7 nights. The house has beautiful views over the Pacific Ocean out back, the house is kept very clean, towels are provided the bed was very comfy. The house is situated in Breaker Bay, about 40 mins outside of Wellington CBD area, easy enough to get there though after a short walk and bus direct. Tania is a great host, very welcoming and helpful, even gave us a lift to the airport when we were leaving. Had a great stay.

    John2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is small indoors, but perfectly and artistically equipped and designed. There's a lovely balcony from which to enjoy the view, which is gorgeous and expansive ~ from one side to the other of Wellington's enormous harbour to the other, plus mountains, sailboats, cruise ships.... A lovely place to relax and enjoy the sunset, or the sunrise. We hope to be back some day.

    Jack2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, clean bedsit. Possibly the coolest use of both the view and the space. Lovely cool temperature in mid Feb too in hot sunshine. Super easy to get to the local town area and very reliable bus services. Thanks Mary,

  • Crisp, clean and cozy, with an astounding view. Allow extra time if you plan on catching a morning ferry. Mary was delightful. She even shared some fresh eggs with us from her own hens! Bed was comfy. great kitchen set up and shower that has very warm water with great water pressure. Especially comfortable, despite how small the space is. Parking on the street was adequate, and worked out fine even though with the steep windy road it felt precarious. The only draw back no WiFi or hair dryer, but we knew this when we booked. No surprise there . Thanks Mary we highly recommend your place!

  • Had a lovely stay here! Great value for money, very clean, nice views, friendly host - Fritha was kind enough to recommend the Gipsy Cafe' close by where I had a lovely brunch :)

    Naufa2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We only had a very short stay at Fritha’s place before an early morning flight. We found the space clean and tidy, exactly as described, and very handy to the airport. A great little studio setup above their garage. Thanks again Fritha.

    Brayden2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Close to airport. Super clean and close to the airport.

    Tia2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay at Fritha's AirBnB as always :) I stay here almost everytime I come to Wellington on business, (only time I dont is when it's already booked!). I only wish there where more places like this around the country. Absolutely love this AirBnB, and would absolutely recommend!

    Tara2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great view of the city and of the planes departing, quick Uber ride to airport. The flat is a stand alone & much more spacious than in photos, all we needed for 3 night stay or longer, extremely clean with a very comfy bed. Fritha is a very thoughtful host and replies quickly. Would stay again next time we are in Wellington.

    Mike2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fritha's studio room was very tastefully decorated and there were plenty of thoughtful touches. Less than 5 minutes to the airport by taxi made it very convenient for an early international flight.

    Susan2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • The location is awesome. Just head down the street to find Seatoun Beach. There is a pub,takeaway, restaurant and a Four Square shop in the area. Highly recommend Arcimboldi for dinner. The bus drives right past the accommodation so you can discover Wellington without a car. It is an 8 minute drive to the airport for those early morning flights out of the International Terminal.

    Andrea2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place!! Quiet and clean. Nice and close for a drive around to the Red Rocks Walkway.

    Paul2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Janine’s apartment was perfect for our stay in Wellington. Upon arrival, self check in was well explained and went seamlessly. We found on street parking, and the neighborhood is very safe and conveniently near the airport. The apartment is spacious, private, and has an absolutely lovely view from the patio outside. The apartment itself was immaculately clean and had all of the amenities we needed- including a personal washer and dryer which was a HUGE win for us! It’s also an easy and short 15 minute Uber to downtown— perfect location! Thank you again for wonderful hospitality!

    Lyndsay2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Janine's is a lovely place to stay. The space is modern, super clean and with everything you need! I love Seatoun, so was great to be able to stay in such a nice place during my time back in Wellington. It was also great being allowed to have my cat as well!

    Shani2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at janine’s place. Lovely comfy bed, great area close to weta studios and roxy cinema. Nice balcony that we weren’t fortunate enough to get much use out of due to the weather. Highly recommend :)

    Cass2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lauren’s place is a really good find! It is a bit out of the way from the CBD but really close to the airport and it doesn’t take long to get into town if you’re driving. The 2 rooms have everything you need for a comfortable stay and the view from the top floor is beautiful. Would definitely recommend Lauren’s as a great place to stay.

    Paul2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect spot for a quick stopover or those who want to explore the nature and cafes of Miramar peninsular & south coast of Wellington. The house was warm and welcoming and the beds were really comfortable. Parking is aplenty and Lauren was great to communicate with and their dog Charlie was charming and so well behaved!

    Kate2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay and nice host

    Josef2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • I’ve stayed here for 3 weeks. The place is just as it looks - airy and bright with beautiful views. The sunsets from upstairs were breathtaking. You can easily reach the beach below or walk to Breaker Bay - both walks are easy and pretty. The city centre is about 50 minutes away by bus (take the 12e and then the 2), while by car it’s just 15 minutes. The dog Charlie was the highlight of my stay, he’s so sweet and well-behaved. Thanks so much Lauren and Laurence for welcoming us, I highly recommend their home.

    Giorgio2019-12-13T00:00:00Z

    Janine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Xanthia is an amazing host! She is knowledgeable, warm and welcoming, and does all she can to accommodate her guests! We loved getting to know her and her city. We felt right at home in her cozy house located in the beautiful neighborhood of Seatoun. Close to cafes, restaurants, shops, the beach, The Weta Cave, and the airport, so there's lots to do! Also super close to the bus, so it's an easy 30 minutes or so into CBD (town centre). Enjoy the beauty and quiet of the suburbs with great proximity to city centre and all-star, homey accomodation !!

    Jonathan2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for a nice, quiet neighborhood from which to appreciate the greater Wellington area, then this place is perfect. My wife and I spent 5 days here, exploring Wellington and Miramar. Getting to CBD was easy and straightforward by both public transit and rideshare, although we did walk all the way in a couple times!

    Jonathan2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious room with a great view of Wellington. Relatively close walking distance to the beach and local restaurants. A good choice to stay.

    Kevin2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in Xanthia’s beautiful home with my three sons for about two weeks. Xanthia is a warm and genuine hostess for whom nothing is too much trouble. Full of local information and top tips for how to spend a day out in Wellington and further a field. Her home is crammed full of fascinating curios, treasures and thoughtful touches that make this Airbnb truly a home away from home. Beds and bedding are top-notch, comfy, and spotlessly clean. I had my own fridge and shared a fully equipped kitchen. Xanthia made all of us feel welcome and comfortable. The boys loved playing with the cats, watching Netflix, and trying Xanthia’s famous white bait and also delicious sausage rolls. I will definitely keep in touch with Xanthia in the future and totally recommend coming to stay with her when you come to Wellington

    Diana2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    The Little Blue Penguin Retreat provides you with a redecorated double bedroom with a queensize bed in a cosy 2 storied house in the delightfully quiet Breaker Bay with nearly all day sun, and sheltered from the elements. We have stunning, uninterrupted sea and mountain views, and close to the airport but no noise! We recently installed a luxurious hotsprings spa pool available for guest use. The spa is in our private and secluded courtyard garden that is very sheltered from the weather.

You have one large bedrooms (of three upstairs bedrooms), heating provided, double glazed windows, thermal curtains with a very comfortable queen size bed, a goosedown duvet, and a double wardrobe. You share the rest of the house with Raymond, your host, and Kelly the very loving and friendly dog who keeps watch over everything. We are the only Airbnb in New Zealand, and possibly the entire world that has resident Little Blue Penguins that come home at night to nest and raise their offspring. Downstairs on groundfloor is the kitchen, toilet, dining table and living area. The living area has a lovely table for having breakfast at whilst enjoying the spectacular panoramic view outside across the bay.

    Breaker Bay is a friendly community of approximately 200 people in a Wellington. The Bay offers opportunities for coastal walks, diving and kayaking right outside the front door. It is a quiet and sheltered bay on Wellington's picturesque south coast that is very charming and considered the nicest beachside locality around We have little blue penguins that nest all around Breaker Bay and if you go for a walk in the evening chances are you'll hear if not see them. The penguins are shy and do not like bright lights. Breaker Bay is close to the airport (5min drive) but because we are sheltered behind a hill we get absolutely no airport noise. There is very little road traffic on the Breaker Bay road - you're more likely to see and hear cyclists than you are cars. It offers opportunities for coastal walks, diving and kayaking right outside the front door. We have orca, seals, penguins, and whales that swim right past. Breaker Bay is east facing so we have the sun rising across the bay in the morning and get almost all day sun until early evening. The studio and entire property is positioned in a such a way that we are sheltered from cold southerly winds and the predominant north westerly winds that most other properties in Wellington are exposed to. Breaker Bay is at the entrance to Wellington harbour so all the ships, ferries, and cruise ships pass by. - located centrally on Wellington's world famous "around the bays" scenic route. - positioned midway along the stunning Eastern Walkway which is a Wellington "must-do" We are within 5min walk of Wellington's most sheltered swimming beach, Breaker Bay beach, that is also promoted as Wellington's only designated clothing optional beach! Walking distance to some of Wellington's best eateries: - Gypsy Kitchen - Sambal Malaysian cafe (best malaysian in Wellington) - Huckle and Co in Seatoun - voted best fish 'n' chips in Wellington Close proximity to everything you need as it's only a 5min drive to: - Wellington International airport (but we don't get any of the noise) - Pak 'n' save Kilbirnie - NZ's cheapest supermarket - Maranui Cafe - Queen Sally's Diamond Deli - The Spruce Goose Restaurant - Elements Cafe - The Larder - Polo Cafe - Roxy Cinema - Weta Cave (home of the LOTR special effects) - Taputeranga marine reserve on the south coast offering spectacular snorkelling and shore diving.

We offer free guided tours of the community hall providing a historical account of the Bay's history.
  • This is a beautifull spot with a terific host. Easy acces to the city with Uber Or a bus. Raymond is very informatieve and has a lot of knowledge about the region. He was happy to share his fridge and kitchen, would stay here again.

    Petra2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle this is the place for you. Raymond and Julie are so friendly and helpful they will if desired take you off the beaten track and show you the stunning landscape and shoreline then ply you with delicious hot chocolate sat looking out to sea and watching the beautiful fur seals who are quite unperturbed by our presence. The property is spotless and the beds and linen are top notch, the space is cosy and homely. My review for Raymond's is "bloody marvellous "

    Patricia2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

  • We had a really comfortable stay at Raymond's place. He's a very welcoming and easy-going host. His house is right on the waterfront in one of the most beautiful and tranquil bays you can find in Wellington. I'd definitely book with him again next time I pass through Wellington. Thanks Raymond!

    Amnon2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Raymond just like a friend, always willing to help. Stay in his house very very comfortable and enjoy stunning sea view everyday. Wish Raymond and Julie live a healthy, happy life forever. Strongly recommend the homestay.

    Qi2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place! If you need peace and quiet, you cannot ask for better with the amazing view of the sea to the front, and nature to the back. If you want a warm, friendly atmosphere, you cannot ask for better than Raymond and Julia who are great, interesting, friendly people. If you want excitement, you MUST go on Raymond's 4WD Sunset experience ... I don't want to spoil your fun, except to say that there are LOTS of surprises on the way and amazing sightseeing the like of which you'll not see otherwise. And ... we got a special treat on our journey ... ORCAs! While that wasn't planned, Raymond immediately grabbed the opportunity and raced closer to where the orcas were to show us something new and hugely exciting. More than worth the time and definitely the highlight of your Wellington visit.

  • To class Raymond as a super host is an exaggerated understatement. From the first message you can already pick up on his passion for both people and his accommodation. When we first met him at the door it felt as if we had known each other for years and that we are finally home. His description of his accommodation and location are very accurate. Breathtaking views from the porch and an instant sense of tranquility make you feel as if you are on some remote island even though you are only a 10 minute drive from the city. His home is culturally rich and he is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to New Zealand. The amount of different options he gave us for food and sight seeing is staggering and caters to anybody tastes, even personally calling a restaurant for us to ensure that we would come right. And as if that was not enough he offers extra amenities and services, like airport pick-up and a spa pool. But the highlight of our stay with Raymond would definitely be his Wellington South Coast 4wd experience, without giving away too much, there are so many awesome unexpected surprises on the 4 hour trip, this trip is to die for and should definitely not be missed!!! Thank you very much to Raymond, Julia, and the awesome 4 legged Kelly and Megs, you will certainly see us again.

  • Enjoyable, aesthetic, fun. Raymond is a fabulous host and made us feel very welcome. Every view quite a spectacle - even in the middle of the night, could see stars whilst hearing the waves. Memorable

    Spacious and modern apartment in a residential area near the airport and the city centre; with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a living room with kitchen. It has a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine/dryer and a small TV. Private covered parking. Infants: We are happy to accommodate infants, however, at this time, we do not have a cot or high chair. If you want to have a bed prepared for your infant, please book him/her as a child.
    The apartment was built in 2011 with good insulation and central heating. It offers privacy and spectacular views of the sea and beaches.
    Seatoun is a very nice and safe residential area. You can stroll along the sea or have a coffee while enjoying the beautiful ocean.
  • A lovely spot by the bay! The apartment is well designed and well appointed. The kitchen has what you need. The hosts are kind and helpful. The location is nice, near enough to all the action downtown, but f enough to afford quiet when you want it. The walk around the headland is a treat!

    Alexandra (Xande)2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • A nice spacious apartment with all amenities. Great location in quiet and nice neighborhood. Short distance to the beach with playground. Secure parking on the outside. Can be recomended.

    Magne Gunnar2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • It was great. The house is very well located less than a quarter of an hour from the center of Wellington and 10 minutes from the airport. It is near a beach, in a very good area. Autonomous dst check-in via a key box. The house is superb, very well equipped ... The hosts are very responsive and offer little touches such as chocolate. Bottles of wine are available for sale from their own vineyard and their relaxation center (massages ...) is next door. Great for a stay in Wellington.

    My place is close to the airport, Weta Cave and workshop, the beach, family-friendly activities, restaurants and dining, great views, and art and culture. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. The room is double studio with a brand new en suite. The room is finished in raw timber, with basic cooking facilities and plenty of storage. There is access to a large deck area which gets great sun for most of the day.
    My own house on the property is an original hunters cottage, the main home made of tin. Being Wellington it is built on a hill, which does mean 105 stairs to contend with, but it's very quiet and peaceful at the house. The stairs do have good lighting which turns on with a push button slow release system at both ends of the stairs. My studio is compact, but on a sunny day the large deck gives you the option of spreading outside. It's warm and cozy in Winter, and in Summer double doors allow plenty of air.
    Miramar has such a diverse community feel. Not only is there the nz film industry right on the doorstep, but beautiful beaches, cliff top walks and small seaside suburbs to explore. This is all within walking distance should you wish to tackle Wellington's hills, but only a few minutes anywhere by car. A few minutes further you can find larger suburbs such as Lyall Bay with its surf beach and great cafes, and then onto Newtown with the zoo and athletics field. And of course, the airport is only 5 minutes away and a pretty reasonable cab fare.
  • This studio is a well organized space, with everything you need! The location, in a neighborhood with sea views (and plenty of street parking) was a perfect base for exploring Wellington.

    Jennifer2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Recommended. Cabin just as cute as on photo's. Has everything you need, some good area advice and home baked cookies. Great little getaway with beautiful views around the area. Situated on landlord's property but got heaps of freedom/ privacy. Easy walk to bars and other stuff in Mirarmar. Stairs to cabin quite intens but a good morning excersise ;)..

    Brenda2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • comfortable and fun, a good example of quirky arty Wellington

    Kathy2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great little studio, didn’t want to leave! Best home made cookies ever.

    Jo2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely home. Thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck in the sun with your dog and cat 🐱 🐶 Would stay again. Highly recommended

    Jessica2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • A cute and cosy space. The bed is very comfortable and clean, soft linen, and extra blankets available. I made use of the electric blanket too which I was pleasantly surprised to find. The shower has great pressure and temperature and the bathroom is clean and tidy. Kitchenette was well stocked with essential items- bread, margarine, milk, tea & coffee, salt & pepper, and all eating and drinking utensils. The stairs... What a workout!

    Melanie2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Tamara’s studio and thoroughly enjoyed going up and down the many steps! Tamara’s instructions were very clear and the location perfect for our needs. We did lots of walking but public transport was available nearby if needed. Anastasia the cat was delightful. Highly recommend staying here during your Wellington visit if you’re ok with steps😄

    Marlene2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • A superb studio in a quiet sunny location. Tamara is a thoughtful host. Really enjoyed our Sundowners on the deck.

    2017 Motor Home that sleeps 2 adults. This is suitable for over night stays when you have a early morning flight or late arrival into New Zealand. A place to get a few hours rest. Easy access as parked on front lawn. There is a garage at the rear of the Motor Home were you can store excess baggage if required.
    Campervan has a nice lay out as pictured. You will need to take into consideration that the camper is not as sturdy as a house, so care must be taken. There is limited hot water, so showering time will not be like a domestic shower. If there are 2 persons needing to shower, you will need to shower at different times.
    Camper is on the section with my residence.
  • Felicity's camper van is ideal for a quick night stop over. Its very modern and clean and very close to the airport.

    Sue2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Felicity is on top on being an incredibly hospitable host. Good natured, accommodating, well organized and just plain fun to chat it up with. The mobile home she offered is suitable for short and extended stays as it is in close proximity to all the amenities a traveler needs.

    Raul2020-02-12T00:00:00Z

Sit on the balconies and soak up the view with a glass of wine. Entertain friends in the stylish lounge and dining room. What a very special place indeed.

    Ryan2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place and location! Andrew is very easy to work with as a host. Many amenities if you like to cook which we did. Bed super comfy. It’s in a quiet suburb of Wellington and we used Uber a lot which was easy. There were marvelous local walks nearby. Truly gorgeous place and will be back again.

    Tracy2019-07-11T00:00:00Z

  • Would highly recommend! Claire’s place has thoughtful touches throughout that make you feel at home from the minute you walk in the door. 10 minute drive from airport, close to bus stops/small shops, and a beautiful view in a quiet neighborhood. Bed is super comfy, shower is amazing, and the towel rack is heated! Claire is quick to respond to answer questions and make sure everything is just right. I would have stayed longer if I could! A must-see.

    Molly2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, warm, clean and well supplied. Is exactly in person what the photos look like. Claire was fabulous to communicate with. I rented it for a month while I found a rental home and it was ideal. Handily located to Wellington airport. There is a local bus, unfortunately it didn’t go the right route for me, but could change to other buses at Miramar shops. Faces north so very sunny, although being on the hill does mean quite windy (hey, it’s Wellington!). Also nice and private. On street parking is safe as is a cul de sac.

    Sarah2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Claire's place was very convenient, close to the airport and close to town with great shops at the bottom of the hill. The place was very clean and tidy and exactly what we expected. I would happily recommend to stay here!
