Dean allowed us a late check out the next day due to our appointments for which we were very thankful. The cottage we stayed in was very well presented , roomy and had everything we needed, the guys... More

We will definitely go back. Beautifully done up, faultlessly clean, a delightful cottage off just one of the best locations in Wellington to be based. Cuba st has an excellent vibe and you are in walking distance of all of wellingtons hot spots.

I was after a good location on Cuba, and this definitely fit the bill. The area is busy, and there is a main road nearby, which seemed a problem to other reviewers, but I found it not at all noisy. It was nice to be back off the street too. good points: great shower, lovely plunger coffee, clean & tidy,... More

great little cottage, clean with nice settings. easy booking with prompt helpful reply and directions. The main bed was super nice although think the sofa bed for my 2 teenagers was a little bit hard. saying that the location is great right at Cuba St but tuck away in this little side street - very quite and relaxing. even better...

A perfect location for a 'girls shopping' trip. Easy walking distance to shops, food, entertainment, etc. Extremely neat & tidy with everything you need in a 'home from home'. Shower was heavenly (super powerful) and great set up with the sliding door/wall for privacy in the bedroom. Although just off Cuba Street, it was very quiet over night and the... More

The location of this cottage is fantastic being within walking distance to may sites and great restaurants. It was quiet and very comfortable with everything we needed for a family with young children.

Love being independent and tired of paying overinflated city hotel room rates - then this place is for you.We were very pleased with our stay here. The cottage was spotless. It had enough to make it a home away from home. There was a kitchenette with two small hotplates, a microwave, a bar fridge, a dishwasher, crockery, cutlery pots and... More

Oh my goodness, what a comprehensive review. Thank you! We are glad that you found our cottage a 'home away from home' and look forward to your next stay. As heritage-listed buildings we are not able to extend the building, which means we need to be thoughtful in how we use the inside space. The large sliding door between the... More
