Apartment living in the city

Taranaki 217 is a unique accommodation complex in Wellington designed to accommodate a wide cross section of people. We cater for the student fraternity and also a generous mix of professional tenancies.

We are located just a few minutes walk from the heart of the CBD in Wellington, and from the Massey University campus.

During the summer period when most learning institutions close and fewer courses are run, we open our doors to holiday makers/backpackers looking for suitable lodging over the holidays. Long and short term tenancies available (minimum 2 nights).
