Pauline Poi & Julie Chan purchased this Studio in 1992
Why Pauline Poi & Julie Chan chose Brooklyn
Brooklyn is one of the coolest suburb of Wellington. The panoramic view is so captivating that we bought the land and built a home on it. We love the quiet neighbourhood , the reserve is just at our back door and the closeness to the city. Wellington is dubbed the "The coolest little capital in the world" by Lonely Planet. It merges big city culture with small town charm. It is celebrated as New Zealand’s arts, film, coffee, culinary, craft beer, events and political capital.
What makes this Studio unique
From the bay window, you can relax and enjoy the lavender bush and stunning view of the Wellington Harbour. Plenty of free on-street parking is available. The bus stop is just 7 minutes (500m) walk away and the buses to the city operate 7 days a week. A 25 minute walk to the city through the Central Park is invigorating. The Polhill Reserve and the wind turbine just at our back door. It is just 1 minute (68m) walk to the entrance. A less than 5 minutes’ drive to enjoy either eat-your-heart-out at the best eateries in town, a movie at the Penthouse Cinema, a game of tennis at the Renouf Golf Centre or for a game of out-of-this-world mini golf at Calucci Land, a unique Wellington landmark with remarkable artworks.

Fantastic setting high above Welly
New to NZ, I was here for two weeks waiting until my rental property was available. Lovely stay - very quiet, great hosts, amazing views and a quick walk up to the windmill after work to see the city laid out below. Everything necessary was there; warm welcome, warm house!
We sincerely appreciate your five star review. We wish you the very best in your future endeavours.

Very comfortable stay if you happy with some travel
Wonderful accommodation with breathtaking views. But it’s an adventure getting to the place.
Thank you for the 5 star rating. We are very honored to receive it and hope to see you again.
This is a lovely place to stay not far from the heart of the city. You can take a short walk up above the house to panoramic views of the whole city and the most spectacular sunrises.
The host was super friendly and gave space to feel like I was on my own. Tea, coffee and electric blanket so felt warm in the depth of winter.
It was a little musty in the room, potentially just as a damp time of year but nothing a few nice scented candles or room scents wouldnt fix.
We are very grateful for your review. Thank you for your feedback on the dampness which happens in winter. We will heed to your advice.
Thank you again,
Julie & Pauline
Great accommodation. Definitely a 5 on all counts all counts
Good contact made. Everything went smoothly. The view was an additional extra.
Thank you for your five star rating. We hope you had enjoyed your time in Wellington and hope to see you again.
A very comfortable two nights in this studio overlooking Wellington. A steep road up but the views were fantastic. Julie was very welcoming and showed us around the studio and gave us very useful local information. Excellent value
Thank you so much for the 5 star review. We will endeavour not only to maintain but also to continually raise the quality of stay for all future guests. We hope you will stay again.

Enjoy the great outdoors which is just steps away from the studio. The studio's closest neighbour is the George Denton Park and Polhill Reserve which has many walking tracks. One which leads to the Brooklyn Wind turbine which is a 1.45 km (approximately 30 minutes’ walk) hike. After a short walk up the wind turbine trail, you’ll already start to enjoy scenic views of Wellington City and Wellington suburbs. Just remember to stop and look behind you and to your right when walking up the track.
