In response to the bad review left previously, Michael himself had suffered a minor stroke about that time (2008), hence his probably seeming a bit off and at our time during staying, when we moved into our own rental property, they could not have done more for us if they had tried.

We stayed at Rosetta for 1 night in Nov 08 for a peaceful break from the bustle of downtown Wellington, and apart from the "grizzly" comments by EddieBear (obviously a bear with a sore head) I would concur with the other glowing reviews. Our host Lorraine couldn't do enough for us, was very pleasant company and cooks a lovely breakfast....

As we do with most of our B&B bookings we selected By the Sea Rosetta's because of all the rave reviews in trip advisor. By all accounts this B&B should have been a 4 or 5 star. At best I would rate it average. The price was average, the room upstairs was small with shared bathroom down the hall. A...

My husband and I were travelling down through the North Island and thought we'd like to spend sometime on the Kapiti Coast, walking the sandy beach and feeling the wind through our hair. We contacted Rosetta House for accommodation and were thrilled with the lovely airy room provided. Michael and Lorraine, our hosts, were warm and welcoming and made sure...

Lorraine & Mike were fantastic hosts! We hadn't stayed @ a B&B before, so didn't know what to expect. After a long drive from Auckland we were made to feel at home straight away by Lorraine & Mike. They provided a safe and family atmosphere. We had a very busy time visiting friends & family while in Kapiti. Lorraine &...

We have spent a very comfortable few days at Rosetta House. We were made very welcome and our host was a fund of information about the area. Thanks to his advice, we saw a delightful production of "The King & I" at Southward Museum. We would not have heard of this otherwise. Michael also directed us to the Staglands Wildlife...

We arrived in New Zealand mid afternoon on a July Friday. We rented a car and headed north towards the Kapiti Coast. We had never been to New Zealand before & had little idea of where we were going.

We stayed at Rosetta for three nights in April this year (2007). It was one of many B&B's we enjoyed throughout New Zealand and one I would highly recommend. Nothing was too much trouble, Michael and Lorraine arranged ongoing transport and provided helpful information prior to our visit. Barney (dog) and Jess (cat) made our stay complete. Our room was...

We spent 3 nights in the garden suite at Rosetta House in March 2007 -- Michael and Lorraine are wonderful hosts. The bedroom, bath and lounge were spotless and comfy; the breakfast was hearty and yummy. Michael booked our tour to Kapiti Island ( a must see for bird lovers) and directed us to local restaurants within walking distance. And...

Imagine lying in lovely soft sparkling clean sheets being lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea... well that's what we have enjoyed at our two night stay at Rosetta House bed and breakfast.
