A recent comment: "Karen and Joshua, thank you for allowing us to stay at your awesome accommodation. Perfect for our group of 12 who were staying for the finals of the National A League Canoe Polo Competition.The house was very very comfortable and was like a home away from home. Perfect accommodation for a Team, but also spacious enough to allow people to have their own private space. Accommodation was neat and tidy and I loved the fact that the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for a sports team, ie blender, slow cooker, even muffin trays, probably the best equipped holiday home we have ever stayed at. My one gripe was that the view was so stunning and peaceful it was hard to pull myself away from it and go to the pool and support the team. Once again, thank you Karen and Josh"

Came to Wellington for my son's graduation. It was so awesome to go back to such a beautiful home which had absolutely everything and more. So relaxing with beautiful views as we were all so emotionally exhausted after two days of full on graduation celebrations. Didn't know there was a scullery until about 2 hours after we had arrived. Was WOW from the minute we walked into the house.Sorry to leave, but will be back (if we are allowed)......Thank you to Karen & family for sharing your beautiful house with us. Lynette Hatton

Hello Karen and Joshua ... I would like to apologise for not making my comments earlier, i.e. back in October 2012. We (Under 15 Boys Basketball Team) stayed at your house for 7 days (6 nights) and it was the best place, and location we stayed in. I thought the distance would be an issue, but it was great to come home and just relax away from the venue. I know the boys are still talking about our stay at your beautiful home and am envious of others going to Wellington for their events. A beautiful beautiful home and I can't thank you enough.

Weather wasn't really on our side so couldn't utílize the wonderful deck area, but plenty of room for 10 to dine inside. The drive down to garage is certainly a steep one but we managed to park our extra vehicles on the street. Thanks again for opening your home to us.

To Karen and Joshua

I cannot express how grateful and speechless I am to have found “ The Castle” during our stay in Wellington for the NZ Men’s National Netball Tournament.

Our team was the Auckland U23 Men’s Squad.

The Castle Accommodation is just a beautiful and tranquil place to be. Waking up to those beautiful views every morning and at breakfast, this was really a highlight of our stay.

The furnishings and facilities were so stylish and professional such an awesome highlight to giving our players the best rest possible during our week long tournament .

When we had first arrived the team were speechless when entering the house and seeing where we were going to be staying.

All the communal places were so appropriate for a group our size and the small intimate places also gave our players time to reflect and recuperate.

Your place is a complete gem and I would suggest anyone looking for quality accommodation in Wellington see this place.

We also came away 3rd in the competition and “ Fairplay Award 2012 ”

We will be back next year :)

Thanks again

Kind Regards

Great place for large groups to stay, fill the house and you get million dollar views for backpacker prices! The house and grounds could do with a bit of tlc to take off the rough edges and the driveway is your worst nightmare if you drive a low car.

Overall tho a very pleasant place to stay and a very cost effective way to see how the other half live for a few days.

Usually I have to find a motel to house them all which doesn’t really provide a good ‘team’ environment. Your house was awesome!!! We could have relaxed dinners and drinks and had some great games of Pictionary and the rooms were great.

I get my team together usually 3 times a year and would like to use your house for our accommodation because it suited us so much.
