Didn't know what to expect. The road up was very steep, the car complained all the way and the apartment was up several flights of stairs. Didn't follow the instructions but found it easier to take the cases to the front door. Once inside we were blown away. The apartment was modern, bright and very well appointed. The owners had left eggs, bread, orange juice and milk to get us started as well as the usual tea etc. The views out of the windows were spectacular. It was almost a shame to leave and see the sights. Everything seemed to be within an easy drive from the apartment and there were several good restaurants within 2 minutes walk. I would recommend this place and just wish I could have spent longer there.
My best friend and I recently moved to Wellington, and began our adventure with a stay in this vacation rental while we got situated and found a place to live. What a wonderful introduction to our new home city!
Emily was an incredible hostess, going far above and beyond to make sure we were good to go upon our arrival. Even before our move to New Zealand, she was an ideal contact to have in an unfamiliar country, and made our transition a little easier.
The spacious 2 bedroom apartment itself is lovely in every way. The view is spectacular, and took our breath away every morning. As someone who loves to cook, the kitchen provided everything we needed for some solid meals. And the Thorndon location is great and very convenient, although prepare yourself for a steep walk home from downtown if you forgo the bus! We were very comfortable, and genuinely didn't want to leave.
Overall, a highly recommended vacation rental, due in no small part to wonderful hosts.
Excellent location and views! It was a big surprise to find fresh bread & eggs for breakfast! Would highly recommend!
We loved our stay at Acorns - it's close enough to wander into the city for the day or around the botanical gardens. Easy to find with the instructions and car park a huge bonus. Modern decoration, comfy sofas and beds. Lovely and warm for winter and kitchen equipped with everything you could need - although we ate out at the recommended Italian restaurant 2 mins walk away (delicious ). Lovely apartment and good spot to explore Welly!
Communication with owners was excellent as was the 'starter' pack which included fresh bread, eggs and milk.
Very well appointed, modern and clean apartment. Left welcome letter and basic groceries, a lovely suprise. Quaint local shops nearby in a lovely leafy area and just a 10 minutes walk from town. Comfortable bedding and a good shower.
They know how to run an amazing apartment. Great heating, thought of everything. Everything you need for breakfast variety of teas and coffee. Great water pressure. Where to put your suitcases. Great linen. The only thing to think about is the "Wellington experience" a steep street and a few stairs. But you can taxi or uber home in 5 minutes. A 10 minute walk to lambton quay. But there are lovely shops and restaurants a few minutes walk away. Great for two couples.
We stayed with our two teenage girls during the school Holidays. What a gorgeous apartment for being able to chill out if you wanted, without the confined spaces of a Hotel, with a magnificent view over the rooftops of Thorndon and out to the port. Or to walk into Central Wellington within 15 minutes. We loved the contemporary decor and there was everything in the apartment that you needed and of best quality. For this time of the year it was warm and cosy with the heat pump and heating in the bedrooms. I would definitely stay here again. It has been also a pleasure liaising with the owner Emily as she was very helpful and lovely to deal with.
