    The accommodation was clean and tidy and location was great. We had everything we needed from bedrooms, lounge, bathroom and kitchen, everything was nice and clean. Vickie one of the owners was only a phone call away and was easy to communicate with. Would recommend this place to anyone who would like a comfy home for short or long stay in Wellington area. We definitely will stay here again.
