The correct address is 18A Hay Street, and, yes, there is a home nearby with only 18 Hay on it! But you will recognize this terrific B&B by its unique, large arched window facing the bay. Totally worth the steep, narrow drive to their garage, the walk back to Wellington is easy and quick. Owners Bev and Warren Charlton are gracious and fun-loving. He, the architect of this home, and she, the interior decorator, have created a masterpiece and you get to stay in it! Our room, the Versace, included a chandelier over the bed, a well-stocked kitchenette and an Italian bathroom with heated floor, plus a romantic surprise just outside your window! Breakfast was sumptuous and available in our room whenever we wanted it. Bev even washed our laundry while we breezed through windy Wellington. Get Warren to tell you about some "Avatar" staff staying with them during the filming of the movie!
