Échanges avec les voyageurs
The room is set up to provide an independent and private space for our guests, however, we pride ourselves on being welcoming, sharing and approachable. We will do everything we can to answer any questions and accommodate any requirements that you have during your stay. Please ask if you would like to use the full size kitchen, this can usually be accommodated.
We are a child-friendly property, people with children are encouraged to enquire and discuss how we can make your stay with children comfortable. Likewise, people without children needn’t worry that our children will be a feature of your stay.
We hope to meet and greet all our guests, however, this isn’t always possible, at such times we will expect you to let yourself in and make yourself at home.
Off-street parking is available for one car.
There are a small number of stairs on this property as shown in the photos, please view all photos to check the property will be suitable for your stay.
We take all measures to keep noise to the room at a minimum, this includes the use of noise reducing insulation and ceiling materials between floors, and only using the rooms above the room for sleeping in. Unfortunately, no house can be 100% soundproof between rooms or floors at all times. We promise to ensure that any household noise is kept to a minimum, and expect our guests to have realistic expectations about noise.
Access to our full-size Kitchen and Laundry facilities (other areas of the house) is by arrangement. Being a family household with two children our washing machine and kitchen is in frequent use. If wanting to use these facilities, we can determine together when they can be made available for use. I am happy to wash and dry one load of laundry, further loads will cost $5 each.
For home security reasons unrelated to the running of the Airbnb space, we operate security cameras when we are away from home. They are located in our private lounge, dining and kitchen space (spaces not accessed by Airbnb guests except by arrangement), also by our private front door. No camera operates anywhere near the Airbnb entrance or in the Airbnb space.
Enquire about airport pickup.
Check-in and check-out times are strict and must be adhered to. We often have guest leaving and arriving the same day, the time in-between must be kept free to prepare the room.
In room microwave and fridge facilities are intended for basic foodstuff heating & storage only. Be considerate of guests who will stay after you and do not heat strong smelling food. Where possible, we are more than happy to make our full size ventilated kitchen available for greater food preparation.
No smoking or pets on the property.
Be considerate of noise if sitting outside in the early morning and evening, and no visitors except by prior arrangement. Karori has a large number of cafes, bars, and parks for socialising.
Do not use the room for activities that are likely to cause unreasonable damage to the room. For example, hair dying, preparing and eating food in such a way that is likely to result in damage to surfaces or carpet staining.
I am currently enjoying my children's early years working as a stay at home mum and managing our household. My partner Stuart works full time as an IT Project Manager and enjoys relaxing and spending time with his family at the weekend.
We have enjoyed travelling around New Zealand, Europe and America staying in a variety of accommodation styles for both business and leisure. We are now using that experience to create a home based space for both business and leisure travellers that includes all the features and privacy of a commercial operation.
Come and enjoy our relaxed and comfortable space where your needs are anticipated and your precious time is spent enjoying your stay in Wellington. We envisage hosting independant guests who will appreciate a mostly self-contained space in a lovely friendly environment.
