Great alternative to downtown Wellington
We decided to stay here instead of dowtown Wellington during our visit to rhe area. It was like having a private beach! It was a rocky beach, with lots of tide pools and a really nice area for morning and evening walks. Very quiet area. The hostess was very pleasant and helpful. She only lets this one room, and provides everything for the continental breakfast in the room which was great for us because we up and out very early on both mornings of our stay.

The property was incredibly clean and the owners were polite and friendly. The property is right next to the sea and the room as a great view. I got a sore back from the bed but that may reflect on me rather than the bed itself.
