Lincoln Retreat Autumn discount

About this Holiday House

We are running an autumn discount meaning that stays booked from 4th April to 26th April will be discounted to $230 per night (down from $250) Lincoln Retreat is a tranquil getaway, nestled in a quiet street in Tawa (a northern suburb of Wellington.) Just a short stroll to the Tawa shops or to the train that will take you into Wellington within 15 minutes. Newly renovated, this house is a home away from home with modern kitchen and two bathrooms, one with a shower over a bath and the other with a laundry included in addition to a new shower. Both have toilets. One is upstairs, one is down. So comfortable and generously equipped with everything needed to make your stay in Wellington memorable. We try to keep some pantry staples for you. Just use whatever you like and leave any of your own groceries that you can't eat for others. Three of the four bedrooms have queen beds. The other has a super king. In addition there is also one single bed. Three couples would be very comfortable. A port a cot, high chair is also available. We take long term stays too but please book early Free unlimited ultra fast broadband included of course. Just a quick note regarding large families. They seem to sleep on the duvets. This causes even more washing as the duvet and the sheets need to be washed as they are wrinkled and cant be left as they are. Could you please sleep between the sheets rather than on top of the duvet. It makes things so much easier for my cleaner. There are some toys in one of the bedrooms and there is a gate that you can slide in place so the young ones are safe upstairs. If this place is showing that it is booked on the calendar, email me anyway as I know of other suitable places in the area. I will answer your inquiry within half a day (mostly much less than that). If you haven't heard from me please look in your spam just in case All stays will have a $200 cleaning fee included. This wont be in the quote from Holiday Houses that you see, it will be added by myself when I get your email enquiry. For larger numbers I may ask for a damage bond. If that is so, it will be the deposit for the stay and will be returned after the house has been checked for major damage. This is one way that I can cater for a larger number in the house. Just thought I would copy and paste in some feedback from a recent stay: "This property was fantastic and great value for money. Had loads of room for all 7 of us so it didn't feel cramped. It catered to our 2 yr old who loved the toys and was handy having a child gate at the top of the stairs. The bedrooms were comfortable and the house was very warm esp. with the hea4 pump and having heaters in each room."

Great house - we came for a weekend in Wellington with 4 kids (3 teens!), and there was enough room for them, and plenty more beds. Our bed was really comfortable. There was enough hot water for everyone to have a shower (see teens above....). The kitchen was well stocked. The living area is small, but we were mainly out and when were we in, it was just cosy. Great heating - we were toasty warm. Great Location - I wasn't sure about staying in Tawa but it's close to shops, and a great supermarket, and the train is brilliant for getting into Wellington - only a couple of stops, and it's an easy walk there. Definately would stay again.

We had a lovely stay at Lincoln Ave. We lived here for 5 weeks and it was perfect for us. Nearby our family and bus and train on walking distance. We will stay here again when we visit NZ next time. Thank you Deirdre...
Response from Owner
Anja was a pleasure to host. She looked after the property and let me know of maintenance issues which was great as I could see to them quickly so no one was inconvenienced. She did a great clean up at the end and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to other Holiday House owners
Deidre accommodated us at short notice on Christmas Eve - thank you! Fantastic house, very large and equipped with everything you could need to host a large group. Kitchen utilities were great as were the dvds and games. Recommend to all.

A cleaning fee of $200 applies to all stays and wont be itemised in the quote that you get from the website. It is the only other cost that will be added on when I send you the info about the house.

If you have 6 people in your group, here is an example of prices for you.
For three nights the full cost would be $690 plus $200 cleaning fee making the total $890.
If you have 7 in your group and want to stay for a week the full cost would be $1320 +cleaning fee of $200 making a total of $1520
For larger numbers I reserve the right to charge a damage bond. No parties or noise that the neighbours will hear as they will complain to me and I contact you to make sure the house becomes quiet. We have installed a security camera outside the house for both guest and host security. Please dont book for a certain number of people then bring in extras without disclosing that to me.
