The Gardens Homestay is a large Victorian residence built in 1892 and restored and developed during the 1990s. Your homestay hosts are Neil Harrap and his wife Sally Guinness. The richly ornamented facade features stained glass, cast iron lacework, bay windows and wooden fretwork in a delightful display. A Wellington homestay with style!

We're located in historic Thorndon and just five minutes walk through the park to Parliament, Lambton Quay and Wellington's shopping and business centre. It's just two-minute walk to the Wellington Botanic Gardens and the Lady Norward Rose Garden, even closer to numerous cafes, restaurants and specialty shops in the historic Tinakori Road shopping district.

St Mary Street is shown on the original 1840 plan of Wellington. Nearly all of the houses in Thorndon are carefully restored or faithful replicas of the colonial era. The neighbourhood contains a wealth of historic homes along with the New Zealand Prime Minister's residence which is set in extensive gardens. At the top of St Mary Street is the Town Belt with hundreds of hectares of forest and many bush walks.

Splash and swim in the heated freshwater in pool - a pleasant 26 degrees throughout summer.
