About our home

Our 3 story, 200sqm home is located just metres from one of the best beaches in Wellington. We have 3 double bedrooms and a turret in which we can add one or two single beds if required. There is a 10m2 balcony off the turret with sweeping views of Lyall Bay. We have a very warm and sheltered courtyard, which is connected to the kitchen and living room through large folding doors, creating the perfect indoor/outdoor space. The new kitchen features all modern appliances, including twin dishwashers, large twin oven and induction cooker, and a large double fridge. There is a BBQ in the courtyard as well for those warm evenings! Our main bathroom features a huge two person hydrotherapy spa bath, and the master bedroom has an ensuite with walk in shower, and a 20sqm deck looking out to sea.
Lyall Bay is the best surf beach in Wellington, and we have surfboards and body boards for your use if you would like to try it out! It is also a very safe swimming beach at all times of the year. Our house is just a few minutes walk from several excellent cafes, and there are 2 bars/restaurants along our sandy beach. and we are only 10 minutes drive from the centre of Wellington and its vibrant arts and cafe scene.
We would prefer to swap cars, but if you do not want to drive, we are on a regular bus route for easy access to the city and beyond. We have a 2011 Skoda Superb for your use, which is fantastic for long trips. Our kids are still in car seats, so if you are travelling with your ones you are welcome to use these.
