We are travelers who fell in love with New Zealand. We rent homes for ourselves to stay in all over the world, so we are happy to share our Wellington home with you.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

This home is quintessential Wellington, in a stellar location for active travelers who desire a home-away-from-home with all the basics. Our home is built as are many in Wellington, especially the suburb of Hataitai, high on a hill, thus our magnificent views. This really sold us on Kainui Heights.

Proximity to the Central Business District, the airport, ferry terminal, and train, makes Kainui Heights the perfect escape for locals looking to get away, as well as visitors from (literally) all over the world. Our home is furnished 'Kiwiana' style, so if you are traveling from somewhere other than New Zealand, you'll get the flavor of how we live - simply, with a reverence for the earth. And, if you are interested in the many films of Peter Jackson, you'll be looking across Evans Bay at his home turf, where all the real movie magic happens, on the Miramar Peninsula.

Ideal Home For A Week in Wellington!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Kainui Heights. It gave us a perfect "jumping off site" for our daily adventures and it was relaxing to come home to in the evening. Of course the view from the master bedroom thrilled us. We found it easy to navigate the bus lines and Kainui Heights was an ideal home for our week stay in Wellington.

Thank you for organising our family stay at such short notice.
We all had a wonderful time, the house was wonderful and even
my not so agile 79 year old mother managed the ascent to the
front door. Fabulous decor, spectacular views and I slept like a
log in the king size bed.
Thanks once again,
Frances Reeve, Margaret River, Western Australia

We had the pleasure recently of a weekend spent in this lovely home which we found spacious,
stylish and comfortable. The home being stocked with eco-friendly and organic items
throughout shows real care and thoughtfulness for both guests and environment. And truly,
truly, million-dollar views!

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely home.  We particularly liked the great views of the mountains and water from the sunny verandas off the master bedroom and living room.  We also enjoyed the easy access to restaurants a few blocks away and the ability to access hiking trails up to Mount Victoria and to the Wellington CBD.   Some of the Lord of the Rings filming locations are within a ten minute walk.David Russell, Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA
