          This place (The Keep) is just so cool. Three floors with wonderful views of Cook Strait. Parking is a bit tight, and restaurants are not plentiful, but everything else is heavenly. Perhaps the neatest place we've ever stayed. Bruce provides very ample breakfast resources. It...More

          Hi We are staying in Wellington between 4th January - 6th January. We are a family of five (2 adults, three young kids) and are really interested in your lighthouse accomodation. If it is available, is it large enough to sleep five? Best Nial
