Overview
Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Wellington, Greater Wellington, North Island
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 int...

The apartment was very comfortable, well furnished and everything was provided to make it feel like home. There was even a beautiful garden to explore with flowers, fruit and vegetables growing abundantly. Marjorie is truly the queen of gardeners. Our hosts Marjorie and Ian were just fabulous, so generous with delicious homemade cookies on our arrival, fresh made hot cross...

A very hospitable host. Lovely large apartment and easy to catch the bus into the city. The garden is gorgeous and an added bonus to make you feel relaxed. Generous host with garden herbs and fruit. If the weather is bad then there is a Conservatorium to sit and relax in to look out onto the garden.

We stayed at Apple Tree Apartment two years ago and returned this month. Though we were visiting family across town, we wanted to enjoy the Apple Tree once again. Ian and Marjorie are welcoming and helpful without being at all intrusive. Drinking a coffee in the fully glassed solarium is a morning treat, as is walking out the sliding glass...

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 18...
