our family of five loved our wonderful stay at the apple tree. Ian and his lovely wife made us feel welcome. they were helpful in pointing out some wonderful eateries and places to visit. the apartment is a ground floor space that opens right into their lovely garden. not just one apple tree but several. the kids loved exploring all the plants and flowers. Plus its located just outside the main city, so it's quiet and there was parking... which is great since wellington have very narrow, limited parking streets.
