The gorgeous Melrose Haven B&B is a cosy, self-contained queen studio just minutes from Wellington airport on the Melrose hills overlooking Lyall Bay.
This beautiful bed and breakfast comes with a hot spa pool and is the perfect place to relax after a busy business trip in the capital, or unwind after exploring Wellington city - the coolest little capital in the world! Perfect also as a writer's retreat or couple's romantic getaway.
The bedroom, with a queen bed and New York style sofa, has French doors opening to a verandah with patio furniture to sit and enjoy the birdsong and views.
The self-contained queen studio takes up the entire bottom story of our house. Your guests will have their own entrance and exclusive use of the spa pool and back courtyard. (Although we will need to attend to and water the garden at times).
The queen bed and sofa bed are in the same studio space, along with a small desk for a laptop if guests have work to do, a small wardrobe with two cosy robes and a luggage rack for a suitcase.
There's also an eclectic collection of books and magazines as well as handy guides to all that Wellington has to offer. Voted the 'coolest little capital' by Lonely Planet, Wellington was also voted the best place to visit in Aotearoa New Zealand - so your guests will find plenty to do.
The kitchenette is separate to the studio lounge/bedroom and has a breakfast bar and comfortable bar stools. It comes equipped with microwave, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, dinner setting for four, cutlery and wine glasses as well as serving platter - great for snacks and a wine on the verandah.
There is also a separate bathroom (shower and toilet and bathroom vanity - no bath), with its own door to the verandah and steps down to the spa. There's shampoo and conditioner, body wash and hand wash and a hair dryer so no need to pack the extras unless guests have their own special brands or preferences.
As well as being quality assessed full members of the Bed & Breakfast Association of NZ, we have five star Superhost status on AirBnb.
