So what do our guests say?..

Dear Clare and Simon, 

Thank you both for your hospitality. You've made us feel welcomed, starting from braving the storm to receive us late at night, to drawing us little maps to navigate the labyrinth-like streets in Wellington. It is most thoughtful of you to go through your home looking for toys and books to keep our active, bouncing five-year-old entertained. Anjali had so much fun at your studio, and she told me that she wished we could stay there for a longer time. Thank you for sharing your lovely studio with us. We really hope to see you again when we return to Wellington!

Awesome, Relaxing, stunning place to stay for a weekend, even longer. The studio has everything we wished for. Would recommend the studio to every person we know. Clare and Simon made us feel so welcome. The homemade biscuits were masterchef biscuits, thank you for that little treat. My Husband and I so wanted to relax and refresh for the rest of the year ahead and believe me, we did. Thank you so very much.



"A night at the Dancing Green"

We stayed two nights at the Dancing Green Studio apartment during Rugby World Cup 2011. Simon and Clare were wonderful hosts, meeting and collecting us at the airport. They shared some of the history of Wellington as their own with us to make us feel at home. The apartment is very well laid out and comfortable. There is an information board which should give you all the information you'd ever need on Wellington, activities and eating out. There are some nice eating places nearby and the amenities in the apartment are great. Cable television, internet, bathroom etc and Simon was happy to drop us off and collect us after the game. We would be happy to recommend a stay there.

Dear Simon & Clare

Thank you so much for having us. This is a fantastic little spot - you've thought of everything. The apartment really couldn't be any better equipped for the perfect weekend away. Brekkie & the bickies were both delicious.

Keep up the good work - we will highly recommend your studio to anyone visiting Wellington & hope to see you again in the future.

Best wishes

My Girlfriend found this place whilst in the UK when we were preparing to emigrate to New Zealand. We needed a short stay base before finding more permanent accommodation and Dancing Green Studio and the hosts Claire & Simon did not disappoint. For our stay (1 month), Dancing Green Studio fitted the bill.

The apartment is fully equipped with everything you need to make your stay a good one and is comfortable and cosy. All the furniture, fixtures and fittings, etc. are all high quality. We had a great time there and our stay enabled us to settle into a new city in a new country.

Claire & Simon were friendly, most welcoming and very helpful. They even collected us from the airport, which was so welcoming after our long journey and much appreciated. A brilliant studio flat and we highly recommend.

"Everything you need"

Dancing Green Studio is in a great location not far from the city and botanic gardens. The hosts have thought of everything down to a noticeboard in the apartment with local maps and suggestions for restaurants and attractions. The apartment also has a collection of books and magazines, cable TV and some Dvds provided so if you want to spend time in the room there is plenty of entertainment. This is a single apartment attached to a residential home - the hosts provide a good balance of contact - you don't feel like they are keeping an eye on you but they were available to assist when needed - even allowed us to use their laundry facilities and hung some washing out for us.
