About Me


We are available this weekend from Friday 9th June onwards.

Sorry if we declined you and didn't respond to your msg. We have been receiving a lot of requests and we are only responding to the ones the feels genuine and that we can actually make it happen.

We have a small family and wont be hosting much, I'm sorry. We will be very selective of whom we host so please forgive us if we don't get back to everyone that sends a request.

We will be hosting people that are willing to connect with us, to talk to our kids and that want to see Wellington while spending some time getting to know us. We ask you to be respectful, thoughtful and in return we will make sure that you are part of our family for the short time you are with us.

A bit about us:

Zenobio is Brazilian/kiwi , Iona is British/kiwi and we have two lovely kids 7 and 4 years old. Our son was born in Australia and our daughter here in Wellington.

We have our little house in the hills and we love to travel when possible. We have been to nearly 30 countries together and our son has been to more then 20 at his young age of 7.

Zenobio likes going to the gym, mma , reading and of course football. Iona likes dancing , reading and Zenobio(I'm writing this :)
kids loves to talk and each has their own personality which you will discover when you are here.

We don't go out partying so if you are keen to go out maybe here is not the right place - we are 20 min from town and public transport are non existence after 8pm. However, if you are happy to just explore Wellington during the day and spend a relaxing evening with us, chatting maybe playing some board game , then here will suit you.

Our place.

We live in Belmont hill Lower Hutt : if you walk down for 20 min there is a train station, Melling, that will take you to Wellington in 15 minutes or so. Alternatively you can catch a bus(it does goes during the day to connect with the train) right outside our house and the bus will take you to the station I believe in 10 min or so. Zenobio works 9 to 5 in Wellington and I drive to the train station on weekly days - more then happy to give you a lift up and down if it suits.

We can offer you a private room on our garage ( we have a double garage and half of it has been converted to a room / sleep out)

The room is clean and comfortable and there is a single bed there - please bring your sleeping bag because is winter now.

We like to say you can't beat Wellington on a good day so please do come, enjoy this beautiful city, and send us a msg if you think the information above suits you.
