We have an awesome space with loads of character just minutes from central Porirua, and a quick 20 minute drive from Wellington CBD. There is street parking during the week days. In the weekend and evenings there is a carpark that can be used. We have a toilet & fully equipped kitchen with kettle, microwave & fridge. From Monday to Saturday there is a coffee cart across the road that sells food too, and multiple bakeries nearby. View Gallery
