ApTrAp is the ground floor of our 1950s wooden house. Its private entrance takes you through our potager garden; its conservatory windows open on to our five apple trees - golden delicious, gala, cox's orange, monty surprise, granny smith. Through the conservatory (also serves as dining room) , is a studio - sitting room, a double bedroom, and fully equipped kitchen and shower toilet room. There's underfloor heating throughout, SKY TV plus wi-fi, and you sleep under feather Fairydown duvets. The whole place is peaceful and quiet, its big windows looking out to the King Fern (with luck, there'll be a bird resting on it) , lancewood and other native trees, plus colourful flowers and flaxes of all sorts.

We live in Newtown, Wellington's most cosmopolitan suburb. 4 mins walk away is the bus stop with regular buses into the city (a 20 min ride) . We are a 10 minute drive from the airport and 25 minutes from the South Island Ferry. At either end of Paeroa Street are pleasant walks through the city's green belt. The regional aquatic centre is just down the road. There's a golf course over the hill, international stadiums are a bus ride away, and Lyall and Island Bays (surf, swim or summer time basking) are nearby. Our city (Wellington's very happy to be known as 'absolutely, positively, the best little capital in the world' ) hosts - of course - Sir Peter Jackson's film studios, plus lots of cinemas and museums (including our national Te Papa); very good theatres, international, local and craft shopping and eating and drinking places to cater for every taste and pocket. An hour's drive will take you to Martinborough's vineyards (famous for pinot noir) or up the coast to Waikanae's sandy beaches, bird-filled estuary and the enchanting Kapiti Island where pukeko, kiwi, tui, and many other native birds can be watched peacefully at play.More

About the neighbourhood
It is an hour's drive from Wellington to Martinborough, where they produce many excellent pinots, or Otaki with its Maori heritage, gardens and lovely ocean beaches. Drive on and you'll soon be at Mount Bruce, admiring native kaka parrots and kakapo, or travelling beside the majestic Rangitikei river, or perhaps admiring the gannet colony at Cape Kidnapper's before going on to Napier to see the unique collection of 1930s Art Deco architecture and then choosing your favourite merlot from one of Hawke's Bay's many sun-drenched vineyards. To the west is the province of Taranaki, whose distinctive conical mountain overlooks lush dairy farms and maraes and villages carrying mementoes of the land wars fought between the indigenous Maori and British settlers in the 1860s.
