“Wonderful Experience!”

My wife and I were very happy to return to this charming, immaculate cottage at the end of each busy touring day in Wellington. It is located in a quiet part of the city, has an open view of the Tasman Sea where people are exercising themselves and their dogs on a public path. It is close to neighborhood cafes and small shops and is an easy drive to the central business district. Parking is not an issue.

Our hosts were extremely gracious and helpful and have cared for and stocked their property to an extent not often seen. We cannot say enough about the quality of this experience and highly recommend it to others.

Thank you, Jetta and Jonathan!

Nice cottage with view of the sea and a little island close to the shore. Good bus connection and interesting walks nearby.

We loved Island Bay Cottage. The location is fantastic, looking directly onto a marine reserve and with great waterfront walks from your door. The cottage is so homely and the pantry very generously stocked. The hosts are lovely and make sure you are well set up to find the cottage and enjoy your stay. It will be my first choice of accommodation next time I'm in Wellington.

The day we were due to arrive, the weather was terrible. The hosts had everything ready. The advance information was perfect.
The location, views and access were perfect and the bus stops out the front.
I think that this was the best accommodation I experienced in my 2 weeks in NZ.

Three of us spent three nights at the cottage for our first visit to Wellington. The location allowed us to really warm to the city. Shops, cinema and restaurant are a short walk away and the seal colony a short drive. We had a car that made transport easy, but there was a bus stop nearby. Jonathan was extremely helpful with directions and other advice. The cottage was well stocked with food.
