We have recently installed a luxury Hotsprings spa in our private, sheltered coutyard garden is private and available for your use, subject to our terms and conditions. A gigabit unlimited internet wifi connection is available free of charge.

El espacio
A very quiet, private, warm, sunny and sheltered house with stunning uninterrupted views across Breaker Bay and the rugged south coast. Your bedroom is one of three upstairs bedrooms with a queen size bed, and double wardrobe.

You have unobstructed sea views from your bedroom. The bedroom was fully redecorated in October 2018 with new double glazed windows, fully insulated, and new thermal curtains and blind. The colour scheme was professionally designed to complement the natural environment. A LHZ electric radiator provides additional warmth and comfort during the cooler months.

On the same level is the shared, main bathroom with a toilet, bath, and shower. The house is shared with your hosts, Raymond and Kelly (canine).

Downstairs (groundfloor) is where the kitchen, dining area, and living room are with external access to sheltered garden and courtyard which gets all day sun. There is an open fire in the living room with two large, luxurious sofas for you to relax and unwind on. A small dining table overlooks the Bay where its great to enjoy a coffee or full breakfast in the morning.

Because the house gets nearly all day sun it is always warm - in the evening during cooler months the heatpump (air conditioner) and open fire provide warmth in the downstairs living areas. During the winter months there is electric heating in the bedroom and an electric blanket for your comfort on the bed.

There is an easy to use smart lighting system installed in the living areas, hallways, and bedrooms fitted with wireless remote controls enabling you to adjust the brightness of the lights to suit your preferences. A DVS ventilation system provides a continuously circulates fresh filtered air from outside throughout the house providign a healthy environment. Guests have access to free unlimited ultrafast wifi connecting you to the internet at 1 gigabits download speeds is available.

I have multiple listings so during busy periods there maybe other guests staying in the house too which is reflected in the rates that are charged. If you want an exclusive stay then please ask and we will offer you an exclusive rate.

Acceso de los huéspedes
Entry to the house is flat, and right on the footpath, with virtually no steps and no climbs! If you're arriving late there is a lockbox with a key to the house so you can always access the house if I am not at home.

You have full shared access to the house on both levels and direct access to the private garden courtyard. You have free access to a gigibit internet connection via ultra fast wifi with multiple 2.4 and 5ghz channels for unlimited and uninterrupted connections, with unlimited downloads.

Entry to the house and private courtyard are secure so rest assured you are always safe staying in Breaker Bay.

You're welcome to use the spa pool but additional charges will apply on a per use basis - please enquire first before using the spa pool as we do ask that you respect our rules of use.

The garage, workshop and other attached buildings are not available for guest access but you're welcome to enquire if you require additional storage space.

Otros aspectos a destacar
I welcome enquiries from all people from anywhere in the world. Breaker Bay is less than 7km from the city centre and is the envy of anyone living in the city centre. People choose to live here to escape the noise and traffic congestion of the central city.

We have resident Little Blue Penguins that make their home here right under the deck. Guests have often witnessed the penguins coming ashore and crossing the road to come home at night - a very special experience.

We often have Orca, dolphins, and whales passing through Breaker Bay that you maybe fortunate enough to be here to watch.

On 5 November 2015 we had Orca playing in the bay right in front of the house - Giselle, a guest staying here whose birthday was that day, and she had the opportunity to witness this event. In August 2019, myself and Jeff, a guest staying here watched a family pod of Orca hunting and feeding in the sea directly in front of the house. It could happen for you too :)

If seahorses are your thing, then I can take you diving or snorkelling to view seahorses in as little as 5m of water. This is a very special site that is not well known about so please keep it secret too :-)

I have multiple listings so there maybe other guests staying in the house which is reflected in the rates that are charged.

I have a separate, self-contained studio apartment at the back of the property which is often occupied - the person(s) staying there do not have access to the main house but uses the sidegate. Please respect their privacy too by not venturing upto the studio space unless you are permitted to do so.

Our luxury 6 person spa pool located in the very private and sheltered area in our courtyard is available for guest use - additional charges will apply on a per use basis.

We're continually improving the facilities, amenities, and decor so there is ongoing improvements being undertaken.

Wellington, Nueva Zelanda

Breaker Bay is a friendly community of approximately 200 people in a Wellington. The Bay offers opportunities for coastal walks, diving and kayaking right outside the front door. It is a quiet and sheltered bay on Wellington's picturesque south coast that is very charming and considered the nicest beachside locality around

We have little blue penguins that nest all around Breaker Bay and if you go for a walk in the evening chances are you'll hear if not see them. The penguins are shy and do not like bright lights.

Breaker Bay is close to the airport (5min drive) but because we are sheltered behind a hill we get absolutely no airport noise. There is very little road traffic on the Breaker Bay road - you're more likely to see and hear cyclists than you are cars.

It offers opportunities for coastal walks, diving and kayaking right outside the front door. We have orca, seals, penguins, and whales that swim right past.

Breaker Bay is east facing so we have the sun rising across the bay in the morning and get almost all day sun until early evening. The studio and entire property is positioned in a such a way that we are sheltered from cold southerly winds and the predominant north westerly winds that most other properties in Wellington are exposed to. Breaker Bay is at the entrance to Wellington harbour so all the ships, ferries, and cruise ships pass by.

- located centrally on Wellington's world famous "around the bays" scenic route.
- positioned midway along the stunning Eastern Walkway which is a Wellington "must-do"

We are within 5min walk of Wellington's most sheltered swimming beach, Breaker Bay beach, that is also promoted as Wellington's only designated clothing optional beach!

Walking distance to some of Wellington's best eateries:
- Gypsy Kitchen
- Sambal Malaysian cafe (best malaysian in Wellington)
- Huckle and Co in Seatoun - voted best fish 'n' chips in Wellington

Close proximity to everything you need as it's only a 5min drive to:

- Wellington International airport (but we don't get any of the noise)
- Pak 'n' save Kilbirnie - NZ's cheapest supermarket
- Maranui Cafe
- Queen Sally's Diamond Deli
- The Spruce Goose Restaurant
- Elements Cafe
- The Larder
- Polo Cafe
- Roxy Cinema
- Weta Cave (home of the LOTR special effects)
- Taputeranga marine reserve on the south coast offering spectacular snorkelling and shore diving. Dive the wreck of the F69!
- Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre
- Red Rocks with great diving, seal watching, running, and ing options

City centre motorway, and the interislander ferry terminals are only 15-20min drive away. Please refer to 'getting around' section for more details on transport options.

Breaker Bay is entirely residential and the local community hall is owned by the residents - one of only 2 in New Zealand. We offer free guided tours of the community hall providing a historical account of the Bay's history.

I'm a professional guy who passionately enjoys the great outdoors and always welcome guests to share my slice of paradise here in Breaker Bay, with you, as my guest(s). I have been an Airbnb host since March 2015 and have hosted in excess of 750 guests from all over the world, making many new friends and acquaintances. Along with Kelly, I enjoy sharing our lovely house with guests, either exclusively for their use, one of our guest bedrooms, or as guests staying in the Little Blue Penguin Studio. Over the past four years we have had many returning guests and most recently my first guests from China four years ago visited us again. I have two Airbnb Experiences trips that I provide to guests offering spectacular views of the Wellington region. One trip is for 3hrs around stunning Wellington South Coast. The other is an all day trip across to Cape Palliser. I am a keen spearfisher, scuba diving instructor, tramper (hiker), mountain biker, and experienced kayaker. I enjoy cooking, and if you want a real kiwi experience, i'll gladly dive for some paua and cook it fresh on the bbq right there on the beach - weather and sea conditions dependent. I enjoy meeting new people, hearing about their experiences, understanding their culture, and sharing my knowledge and experiences of the 'best little capital in the world'. I also like to say Wellington is the diving capital of New Zealand as we some of the best diving opportunities and most accessible coastline in the country. I have tramped, run, mountain biked, or kayaked most parts of New Zealand and taken many groups on adventures around the country. I look forward to the opportunity of sharing my experiences, and providing recommendations or suggestions of places for you to visit, the best cafes, wineries, craft breweries and other activities that you maybe interested in. I am always happy to provide suggestions of other places to visit in New Zealand before or after your stay here in Breaker Bay. I always look forward to, and enjoy meeting and hosting new guests, and our many returning guests, and each person is provided personalised service. I have provided many guests with personalised guided tours to many places around Wellington and further afield that that they may not otherwise visit. I know all the local Lord of the Rings film sites around Wellington and can take you to some that are not included in the 'official' LOTR tours. I have recently established The Little Blue Penguin Adventures to offer guests and other visitors to New Zealand unique and personalised adventures tailored to their preferences and interests. If you enquire about options for personalised tours would be pleased to provide further information when you make your booking. One of my personal values is Manaakitanga, which translated from the New Zealand Maori language essentially means the mutual respect shared between hosts, guests and visitors alike. For guests with confirmed bookings we provide additional recommendations on places to visit either before staying with us or on their trip afterwards.

Durante tu estadía
I work in the city during the week and am often out and about on the weekend. I'm happy to answer any questions you have and point you in the right direction for the best places to eat and explore around Wellington.

I'm happy to suggest places to go scuba diving or if the conditions are okay, you are welcome to join me on a spearfishing trip to catch some butterfish or harvest some paua (NZ blackfoot abalone). You may need to hire snorkelling gear and a wetsuit for this experience.
If you are a Lord of The Rings fan I can provide you with a personalised 4wd trip to the Gates of Mordor – only accessible by 4wd or walking for 2-3 hours. This is not often visited by visitors to Wellington and not included in any of the organised LOTR tours available. The trip costs $120 per person, for 3-4 hrs, and we’ll show the local NZ fur seal colony, and also take you to other LOTR sites on Mt Victoria, and if time allows other scenic sites. Allow 3-4 hours for this trip.
For a longer daytrip excursion (weekends or public holidays) I can take you across to the Wairarapa for a fullday, 8-10hours, guided trip to the seal pup nursery at Cape Palliser, Pituranga Pinnacles (another stunning LOTR trilogy filming location, Rivendell at Kaitoke, and also many wineries and craft breweries. The minimum charge for this trip is $350 or $175 per person.
On request I can provide guided tours of Wellington and explain some of the cultural history of Wellington and take you places that tour companies do not. We are also happy to suggest places for you to visit and assist you plan your own Wellington itinerary.
If the evenings are calm I may suggest going out after dark to find little blue penguins.

We know most of the best cafes and restaurants in Wellington, having visited most of them, as well as many of the best sights and activities - just ask and you'll be given as many suggestions as you would like.
