More about Wellington City Gaystay

  • We welcome gay men and woman to use our home as a base to enjoy the many activities the Wellington region has to offer.

    We are located in the funky part of Wellington, on the edge of the CBD and also close to Aro Valley.

    We are a short stroll from the vibrant café culture of the capital city.  The nearest cafe is 2 minutes walk away.  Courtney Place and Cuba Street with the restaurants, nightlife, theatres and galleries are only a few minutes walk away.

    All of ‘Gay Wellington’ is within walking distance (or a short taxi ride), and your hosts have their ‘finger on the pulse!’ and can help you choose places to go.  We can also help you plan your travel to other parts of New Zealand.
