Acorns in Seatoun, Wellington was so much more than I expected.
A private and relaxing place in New Zealand’s gorgeous city, a peaceful place near the water with views of the coastline across the harbor, Acorns was perfect for me. Trips to the beach, local store and café or bus rides into the city were a simple stroll from Acorns. From the deck of one of the exquisite studios or in the courtyard of the other, scrumptious homemade breakfasts were savored while watching the grand ferries cruise in and out of the harbor or listening to the breeze drift through the Pohutukawa tree. And around Seatoun it was so easy to absorb the tranquility of the area with the singing of the birds, the lapping of the waves and the warmth of the sun on the various short, easy and nearby paths along the coast and in the surrounding hills.
Even though places like this are numerous in New Zealand, Acorns is special because hosts Emily and Tim made my holiday exceedingly blissful with their gestures full of warmth and care. I was sad to leave Wellington, Seatoun and specifically Acorns when my stay ended because of their extraordinary hospitality. When I think of Wellington, I become anxious for the time when I can enjoy the beauty of this place and the welcome of these hosts again.
