* #1 AIRBNB PROPERTY IN WELLINGTON
When God finished making the stunning view from this property he sat down, grabbed a wine and said to himself 'God I am good', then didn't want to leave so gave himself the next day off.
Sunny, beautifully restored 1900s colonial villa gives you water outlook to calm you and the city lights to excite you. As you look out at the Bay you may just want to grab a wine and never leave either but you should because Wellington is a vibrant buzz of culture and world class entertainment.
Because you are only minutes from the city center you can easily walk, take a cheap taxi or the bus which goes down your street right into the center in minutes for a couple of dollars.
Just a 15 minute walk to the waterfront and Oriental Bay beach. While Te Papa museum, and the main entertainment and dining strip (Courtenay Place) is about a 30 minute walk - probably the best walk in Wellington - around the bay (known as the Nice of the South)
This property is gorgeously decorated, with beautiful linen, magazines, WIFI, and all the amenities you require. While the house exterior is over 100 years old and full of charm everything else is renovated to a high standard, new, clean and modern.

Roseneath is a central city suburb in a very respectable and safe part of Wellington. The street is very quiet despite being just a minutes walk from the main entertainment strip in the city.
You have a 30 minute walk away from three cinema complexes, the beach, parks, two playgrounds, a skateboard park, and the national museum. The waterfront is is a popular place for children to ride bikes, scooters, or skate whether with parents or on their own.
Everything is within walking distance. However one of the main bus routes comes down the street you are living on into the city. All buses through this route will take you straight down Courtenay Place, Lambton Quay to Parliament Buildings, all for a few dollars.
From the airport the apartment is $16 - $20 by Uber, approx $30 by taxi.
Uber is also very popular and in this location there is always a driver just a few minutes away.
On street parking is free.
There is one garage (right hand side garage if looking from the street) and extra cars can park free on the street.
