For a quiet and relaxing stay where you have the choice of taking the train/drive into Wellington for shopping and entertainment or stay and enjoy our pool(in the summer only) & views of our tidal inlet; go kayaking, biking or for walks on the beach. We are within walking distance of local shops & cafes or a short drive from some excellent restaurants & small movie theatre.
This listing is for 1 or 2 people in 1 bedroom which is upstairs and separate from the rest of the house. We have another bedroom listed under the same name (see #2) and we can put a king single inner sprung mattress on the floor of the lounge if you need room for 5 people.
These rooms are separate to the rest of our house so have their own bathroom (shower & vanity), separate toilet and lounge with flat screen TV (it does not get a TV signal but there is a good collection of DVDs and you are welcome to share our TV downstairs). We also have wireless internet.
We live on a quiet no exit street overlooking an inlet. Our home has parking for 3 cars or a camper van and car.
You are welcome to use our kitchen for simple heat & eat meals but use of our washing machine & clothes line (a dryer is available for an extra fee) is only available to guests who stay more than 1 night.

Gavin & I have lived in Wellington and more recently Paremata for 29 years; are in our mid - late 50s and enjoy being parents of 3 sons, 1 of whom is living in LA. We have travelled all over NZ and to many countries but still have an extensive list of places we would like to visit.
We enjoy the outdoors e.g Gavin likes running while Susan is more of a yoga person, bush walks/tramping in our younger days & kayaking on our local inlet now we are older. We appreciate good friends/food/wine/music and enjoy learning and trying new things.
We have hosted many overseas people and now we are enjoying making new friends via Airbnb. We prefer independent travel, exploring & Susan enjoys taking photos as we go. We particularly like meeting & talking to local people when we travel.
We love our fur kids - black labX dog & cat plus we have 3 hens. The cat and dog are friendly and live inside the house. They can come and go through the pet door and will be closed off at night to sleep in the kitchen/laundry.
Susan enjoys the garden and grows our own veges. She has been a long-term volunteer for community causes such as Scouting, but these days we are both kept busy with work and home maintenance.
Susan's life motto's are "give it a go" and "keep smiling". Gavin tends to agree with Susan :).
