On my late arrival, Marylin, David and Joe could not have been more welcoming and understanding, providing me with supper and a welcome glass of wine to palliate a stressful event. They managed their bookings to extend my stay and I was made to feel like a member of the family. I was treated to excellent meals (breakfast and dinner) and was grateful for the use of the computer. The house is comfortable and full of character. The bedroom room was cosy if a bit cramped when my partner arrived. The bathroom was separate but close. It is within 20 minutes' drive of the centre of Wellington, very easy to find and with parking outside on the roadside.
