Hi, I have hosted International and New Zealand homestays for several years. Our home is in Lower Hutt where I live with 2 older boys. You are within walking distance to Melling Train Station, Waterloo train Station which is a short ride into Wellington. You can also walk to Queensgate Shopping Mall. The bus stop at the end of our street can also takes you to the mall, Petone (weltec) Upper Hutt and Wellington. Walking distance to supermarket. Meals can be negiotated. You must be clean, tidy, independent but happy to socialise with the rest of us in the house. The room has a Queen size bed, wardrobe, desk if required,set of drawers and is warm and sunny. Please contact me for further information.
