Two large outdoor areas face towards a beautiful leafy Greywacke rock face as well as your own private waterfall - a great place to entertain friends and have dinner and drinks. Superb indoor-outdoor flow from the lounge and kitchen ensure a relaxed living space with dining tables outside as well as inside in case the weather turns. On the first floor landing there is a 2 person Vortex hydrotherapy spa pool (with LED lights!) as well as a couple of bean bags for relaxing with a glass of wine. In total there are 3 bedrooms - 'The Penthouse' master bedroom (which also has its own private and sunny balcony), 'The Dominion' and 'Mr Fox' bedrooms - and all come with king beds. A deluxe self inflatable airbed can be put up in the cinema room so that the property can accommodate up to 8 guests in total. This is perfect if you have little ones (who especially like camping out in the Penthouse Cinema), but do note that it may not be suitable for 8 single adults unless you don't mind sharing a bed. At the other end of the top floor container, there is our very own 'Penthouse Cinema' featuring a 100' HD projector screen - Sky HD with Sky Sports, Playstation 3 for games & Singstar as well as a Bluray player (lots of games and DVDs are also provided). We also have a selection of board games as well as some outdoor games (rugby ball, football, cricket). In a large garage underneath the building, there is an 8ft pool/billiards table and sofa seating (the garage is not heated so may only be suitable for most in warmer climes!). For the bathrooms you’ll find a family bathroom with shower, a downstairs toilet and separate macrocarpa bathhouse. There’s also an outdoor shower for the brave! The Wellington Container House also features:- - FREE wifi broadband internet - Amplifier with Bluetooth connection, record player (and vinyl records!) and aux input for your own device - Artistic light creations - TV on the ground floor with freeview channel access as well as Apple TV - Full laundry facilities - Internal single car garaging with secure remote entry and plenty of additional off-street parking if required The Wellington Container House is situated in Owhiro Bay, about 4km away from Wellington City (8-10 minutes drive away). A short 1km stroll will lead you to the stunning South Coast, the entrance to the City to Sea Walkway, Radome tracks and Red Rocks.More

The innovative design and application of industrial and engineering methods and materials were very interesting. It is 13 minutes out of the CBD, but walking distance to Owhiro Bay with its storm tossed rock formations and a great sunset. The complimentary bottle of white wine...More

We have garaging for one car at The Wellington Container House, rental vehicles are easily rentable from the airport or the city.
