Accommodation Description:

If you are looking for a genuine New Zealand experience then Huntingdon Homestay is your home away from home! Your host is a super friendly kiwi who enjoys spending time with people from all over the world and introducing them to the NZ way of life and living. Here you will find everything you need to be comfortable and relaxed: access to free wifi. Comfortable beds in tidy, clean and private rooms. A selection of yummy breakfast options (continental style including kiwi classics and a few foreign favorites!). A kitchen with every tool and appliance you could need. A comfortable and warm living area. A current DVD collection and widescreen TV to watch them on. And all the information you will need to make informed choices of what to see and do while you are in wellington and how to find your way around town. Huntingdon Homestay has 2 guest rooms available. These can be booked separately or together for groups (up to 4 people). This listing is for the 'Purple Room', it has a double bed, a dresser with draws, and a full wardrobe available for your use. The other room is the 'Green Room' with a queen size bed (NZ beds go from smallest: single - double - queen - king - being the largest), a desk, and a little space in the wardrobe. Both rooms have heaters with thermostats, quality linen including comfortable bedding, 100% cotton sheets, plenty of pillows and thick towels. Free snacks and bottled water, and an assortment of information brochures to help you plan your time here in Wellington. No smokers please $5 NZ cash back when you arrive if you can bring me a key-ring from your country that is reflective of your culture! I have a growing collection from all over the world and would love to be able to give guests their key on a key-ring from their own country!
