Overview

Wellington City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

It's time for your New Zealand holiday.

This modern, well-appointed 3 level home is set high into a hillside with fabulous views, perfect for entertaining and enjoying the natural beauty this region is famous for.

Level One has 2 bedrooms and a bath, with a tub and separate shower.

Bedroom One is a combination office with trundle bed.

Bedroom Two has a Queen bed.

Main level is the living area with open-plan kitchen, generous lounge area and connected balcony above Hataitai Beach.

Lovely sunny views over Evans Bay and the Miramar Peninsula

Top level is the master suite, King bed, huge walk-in closet & private bathroom with heated tile floors.

And, of course, the best view of all from the private balcony. (You'll feel like a 'rock star' overlooking the world from the top level)

This home provides an excellent 'home base' while in New Zealand, with very close proximity to the Wellington Central Business District, Interisland Ferry Terminal and International Airport, without the traffic or city noise.

About Harmony Holiday Rentals

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.

Harmony Holiday Rentals purchased this house in 2008

Why Harmony Holiday Rentals chose Wellington City

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home with fantastic views. It is peaceful and quiet, but close to CBD. Well equipped and comfortable. We had an excellent week. Thank you for a great holiday.

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.

We enjoyed our stay in your home.  What a beautiful view and nice home.  It was very comfortable.  We quickly figured out the bus system and used it for all our travel around 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,

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
