With a lovely, comfortable queen bed and the best views in the house, you'll get woken by amazing sunrises (when it's not cloudy of course) and sunshine glistening on the harbour below. Walking distance to the CBD and with Brooklyn Village only a few minutes away, this lovely double room is an ideal retreat while you discover Wellington and wake to the native birdsong.

Bus stops are right outside the house.

The space
Just up the road from Brooklyn Shops on Todman St, is my Character Villa. Your room consists of a very comfy queen bed with electric blankets, and a very warm pure NZ wool duvet. There are two huge built-in wardrobes with cupboards, desk, chair and bed-side tables with lamps and a very warm mica-thermic heater. The room is very sunny and has the best views in the house overlooking the harbour.

The house is very private and sheltered and gets wonderful sun all day. There are also lots of Tui, Kaka and other native birds flying about, a large sunny deck out front over-looking the harbour, and a paved courtyard out back which leads down to a yard.

The house is fully insulated and fitted with a heat pump/air conditioner. The hot water is gas-heated and endless, and the house has super-fast unlimited Wifi.

The kitchen and bathroom have recently been renovated.

Brooklyn is a great suburb with an excellent local pub, Gastro-pub, deli, cafe that roasts it's own coffee, library, pharmacy, superette, antiques shop, DVD store, fast food and the famous Penthouse Cinema, and of course it's only a few minutes to town by bus.

There is a bus stop literally on the doorstep, although it's an easy walk to town through Central Park. There's free parking on the street outside also.

I have a very friendly Huntaway (Kiwi farm dog) also, so not suitable for anyone allergic. He always offers a very welcoming wagging tail when you get home.

Cheers,
Chris.

Where you’ll be

Wellington, New Zealand

Brooklyn is a very friendly neighbourhood, with great shopkeepers and well-maintained colonial houses. The village has great takeaways, a pharmacy, library, superette, the legendary Penthouse Cinema which plays off-stream movies, and one of Wellington's best suburban gastro-pubs - The Salty Pidgin. And it's all three minutes walk from the house.

I love Airbnb because I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world and sharing all the tips and tricks to make your stay enjoyable and easy. I've travelled a lot so know how it feels to arrive somewhere new, often feeling worn out so make the rooms feel as warm and inviting as possible. I play a few instruments, and work in theatre, television and film. I also write in these fields. Al, my dog, works in 'security'. He's a very clean, friendly and affectionate Huntaway (a special breed of NZ working dog) from the SPCA. But he's sitting pretty now since I picked him up. He always looks forward to you coming back to the house, as the key hits the lock, the tail starts wagging. Just a friendly household - and the views are amazing...

During your stay

I'm always happy to share a drink and a meal if you wish. I want you to have a safe, comfortable and successful stay in Wellington and I'm always on hand to offer advice if you need it. I'm often busy but love sharing a meal with my Airbnb guests to get to know each other and share advice. I've made some of my greatest friends through Airbnb and I love traveling too. So you may very well give me more advice than I give you.
