We do have a cat also (Pancho) but he keeps his distance from the dogs. Also we can offer you other services such as transport around the city, taking care of your laundry, catering for special dietary needs and generally pampering you! ABOUT US: Hi, we are Simon (Kiwi), Scilla (Italian), Gaudi (bundle of joy baby boy), Gina (pocket rocket dog) and Pancho (handsome smoochy tom cat - he's friendly but stays outside because of Gina the dog). Simon is a Landscape designer and gardener and keeps the house and garden in good working order. Scilla works in hospitality and is specialising in massage therapy. Our favourite pastimes are enjoying delicious meals, chatting, listening to music, reading and watching the occasional film, as well as visits to the beaches or parks to walk and play with our little lightening bolt dog Gina. Please get in touch to find out more about staying with us. Guests have exclusive use of the entire studio including the kitchen and bathroom, plus the conservatory and fully fenced courtyard area outside. Simply be considerate of everyone around and keep things clean and tidy. After 10pm or before 7am we request quiet so that all our guests, neighbours, and we can all rest peacefully. Once we've checked you in, you'll have the place to yourselves. Brooklyn village has plenty to offer including the Penthouse Cinema, restaurants, cafes and takeaway food options, as well as a pharmacy, hair and beauty salons, a dairy and a mini supermarket, and petrol station. Plus there is a public library, and community centre if you'd like to get in touch with the local life. On top of all that there is the Brooklyn Wind Turbine Lookout which offers panoramic views over the entire city and on a good day you will even see the mountains of the south island. About 5km to the south is Owhiro Bay with Red Rocks seal colony to the west or south coast beaches to the east, ruggedly picturesque! Getting to our place: We offer pick up from city centre or Airport for a contribution (cheaper than taxi or shuttle). Otherwise a taxi or shuttle will bring you to our door. Or public bus (search 'metlink' for public transport info - Airport Flyer Bus between airport and city centre, and Go Bus #7 between city centre and Brooklyn) will bring you to Brooklyn shops, then it's 5-10min walk to our place - we recommend following McKinley Terrace to Clarence Street (other routes have steep sections). Or if you come by car there are on-street spaces for parking (free of charge), just let us know your arrival time in advance and we can save a good spot for you (no off street parking - please do not try to park directly in front of garages or on off street platforms, these are private and their owners may get you towed or clamped). Going from our place: Brooklyn shops and bus stops within 5-10 min walk. Reach city by #7 bus (10-15min, check metlink for public transport info) or scenic walk down hill (40-50min). Or if you need to move quicker we can run you where you need to go by car for a reasonable contribution (cheaper than taxi). If you have a car please search 'Wellington City Council' for parking rules and facilities in the city centre (on-street parking in our area is free of charge).More
