Wine and milk in the fridge. Well stocked pantry that held nice essentials - we left some stuff as well. Ice in the freezer - always welcome.

I had a really lovely stay over my birthday at The Penthouse. It's very spacious and there was plenty of room for a dinner party of 8. The deck was large and got a good amount of sun in the daytime for sunbathing. Apartment was modern, well maintained and was furnished with everything and more than you would need!

We had everything we needed! An amazing stay with beautiful views, especially with the guy Fawkes display!
The Evans Bay Penthouse was the perfect base for our short stay in Wellington and we would recommend it. This is a large, spacious apartment, flooded with light and sun. We loved the views over the Patent Slip reserve out to the bay with boats anchored. The listing photos are accurate and the apartment has a modern, comfortable feel. We felt very much at home and appreciated the generous provisions supplied and the champagne to celebrate the All Blacks World Cup win. The location of this apartment worked well for us. It is a quick run around Oriental Bay into the city or waterfront and Taxi transport was easily obtained. The instructions supplied by Giles were clear and comprehensive and the apartment was easily accessible (but not so easy for those with mobility issues who don't like tackling lots of stairs).
Gile's apartment is... Just lovely. The open space is great when you have a few of you in it, and the nice sized bedrooms are good for some you time. The massive bath was a welcome surprise after a few weeks away from home!! Everything we needed was there or a short distance away. I couldn't recommend this place more to explore the beautiful blustery Wellington. I didn't get to meet Gile's but super fast communication, easy going and excellent host. Thank you so much! Sorry we forgot to sign the guestbook!!
Waterfront location, close to city centre and enough space for us all to have a lovely holiday.

This property is very tidy and has gorgeous views. It was easy to drive to the city and we loved that we didn't have the hassle of hotel car parking!!! So close to everything we needed, yet far away enough to relax...
Property was outstanding. Really well set up, comfy beds, superb location and a great sheltered deck (important to get out of the wind!). I would not hesitate to recommend.
Me and my friends stayed at The Penthouse for a week and we loved it! The Penthouse was cozy, huge, and well-equipped with everything you can ask for. The Penthouse had a million dollar view of Evans Bay Parade, and with the a cafe just downstairs, it was easy to get your morning coffee before starting the day. It was cold during the time we were there and thankfully there was an electrical bed warmer! On top of that, the kitchen was well equipped with utensils and cutleries, so during some of the nights, we cooked dinner at home and it was convenient. We didn't get a chance to meet Giles during our stay but he was very helpful and friendly when I contacted him though messaging. His instructions were clear and he was very understanding to circumstances. If I were to come back to Wellington again, I will definitely book this beautiful house!
