About this Holiday House

Spectacular views of Oriental Bay, Wellington Harbour and Wellington City - especially at night time. 'Oriental Bay Retreat' - originally a 1900's cottage, now a lovely 3 bedroom house - is privately nestled in a quiet secluded spot among the trees above Oriental Bay. Private cable car or garden walk up from the beach. Master Bedroom (King) with amazing views, Second Bedroom (Queen) with private view of the courtyard and Third Bedroom with Single / Trundler. Oriental Bay Retreat occupies the whole top floor of the house - the lower floor is a separate one bedroom flat that has a full time tenant (who is very quiet and is frequently travelling). Please note that the house is now being rented out to longer term tenants only so the calendar has been blocked out. If you are interested in renting the house longer term, please send me a message.

MONEY SPENT WELL FOR THIS BEAUTIFULLY LOCATED HOME******we stayed for 8 days and it was to say the very least Devine.. Its central location to wellingtons attractions was a highlight, we hired a vehicle for our stay realising we really didnt need it as everything was within walking distance which was a big plus for us cafe's, markets, courtney place 10min walk, 5min if you enjoy brisk walk or 2 if you love your fitness and prefer to run. The waterfront view is beautiful on a hot sunny day with the beach at your doorstep . The Cablecart was a absolute highlight hit for my children the views from the deck outside were AMAZING during the day and truely breathtaking by night with the fountain situated within arms reach, the sleeping quarters were very comfortable, kitchen had everything you need if you are like me and prefer homemade cooking, and not to mention endless games to keep the kids busy on a cold day/night it truely felt like a home away from home for us. We also met with the neighbours who stayed just up the pathway from us who were very welcoming including their very friendly k9 :) absolutely enjoyed our stay i could go on and on but it pays to experience it for yourself. Thank you Carol & Grant for an amazing experience and exceptional hospitality. We are very blessed to have shared some of our great memories in wellington under your roof. THANK YOU****
A Very warm and comfortable house with gorgeous views of the bay, especially at night. Close enough to walk to town. A well equipped house with excellent information and terrific decor.
22/3/2008 – 5/4/2008 What a wonderfully equipped and beautifully sited property. Perfect for relaxing at night, admiring the views or for quick and easy access to the city centre and a great walk along the beach. ‘Oriental Bay Retreat’ will be our 1st choice to stay next time we visit Wellington.”
