And in a little more detail:-

This unique holiday home is a Wellington landmark and was built by industrial designer Ross Stevens, and all three levels are homely and offer the modern comforts of a contemporary house with many more unique and quirky features conventional houses don't offer. Two large outdoor areas face towards a rugged leafy Greywacke rock face as well as your own private waterfall - a great place to entertain friends and have dinner and drinks. Superb indoor-outdoor flow from the lounge and kitchen ensure a relaxed living space with dining tables outside as well as inside in case the weather turns.

The property lights up at night, with many unique lighting features. On the 1st floor landing there is a 2-person Vortex hydrotherapy spa pool as well as a couple of bean bags for relaxing with a glass of wine.

In total there are 3 bedrooms - "The Penthouse" master bedroom (which also has a Nanoleaf lighting feature and its own private and sunny balcony), "The Dominion" and "Mr Fox" bedrooms - and all come with king beds. The sofa in the cinema room can be made up into 2 single beds so that the property can accommodate up to 8 guests in total. This is perfect if you have little ones (who especially like camping out in the Penthouse Cinema), but do note that it may not be suitable for 8 single adults unless you don't mind sharing a bed. We also must stress that this is a container home, so will only be suitable for those who want to stay in a property that is a little bit different and exciting than conventional homes.

At the other end of the top floor container, there is our very own "Penthouse Cinema" featuring a 100" HD projector screen - Sky HD with Sky Sports, Xbox One for games as well as a Bluray player (games and DVDs are also provided). We also have a selection of board games as well as some outdoor games (rugby ball, football, cricket).

For the bathrooms you’ll find a family bathroom with a shower, a downstairs toilet and separate macrocarpa bathhouse.

In the large garage underneath the building, there is an 8ft pool/billiards table (the garage is not heated so may only be suitable for most in warmer climes!).

The Wellington Container House is situated in Owhiro Bay, about 4km away from Wellington City (8-10 minutes drive away). A short 1km stroll will bring you to the stunning South Coast, the entrance to the City to Sea Walkway, Radome tracks and Red Rocks. There are regular buses throughout the week, but an Uber/taxi into the city shouldn’t set you back more than $15. 

We also have a waterfront property in Wellington if The Wellington Container House doesn't suit. Please see below for more information on The Penthouse on Evans Bay or Panorama and Harbour View, including rates and availability, please visit our other site or for more information.
