It's time for your New Zealand holiday.

This modern, well-appointed 3 level home is set high into a hillside with fabulous views, perfect for entertaining and enjoying the natural beauty this region is famous for.

Bedroom One is a combination office with trundle bed.
Bedroom Two has a Queen bed.

Main level is the living area with open-plan kitchen, generous lounge area and connected balcony above Hataitai Beach.
Lovely sunny views over Evans Bay and the Miramar Peninsula

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: We are travelers who fell in love with New Zealand. We rent homes for ourselves to stay in all over the world, so we are happy to share our Wellington home with you.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hataitai:
                  This home is quintessential Wellington, in a stellar location for active travelers who desire a home-away-from-home with all the basics. Our home is built as are many in Wellington, especially the suburb of Hataitai, high on a hill, thus our magnificent views. This really sold us on Kainui Heights.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Proximity to the Central Business District, the airport, ferry terminal, and train, makes Kainui Heights the perfect escape for locals looking to get away, as well as visitors from (literally) all over the world. Our home is furnished 'Kiwiana' style, so if you are traveling from somewhere other than New Zealand, you'll get the flavor of how we live - simply, with a reverence for the earth. And, if you are interested in the many films of Peter Jackson, you'll be looking across Evans Bay at his home turf, where all the real movie magic happens, on the Miramar Peninsula.
