Writers Accommodation Bookings

Accommodation for Visiting Writers

The centre has a second bedroom which is let at a modest rate to writers who need a quiet place to work.  The accommodation is for a single writer so there are only two writers in the house at any time, (the writer-in-residence and a visiting writer).

The room has a double bed, ensuite bathroom, desk, WiFi and all linen is supplied.  The kitchen, lounge and laundry facilities are shared with the writer-in-residence.  A parking space is available, however the house is close to public transport and there is a supermarket within walking distance of the house.  Pantry basics are available for writers to use.


2024 Rates are $480 (incl. GST) per week for New Zealand writers (subsidised rate) P.O.A for rates for International Writers.
Bookings are based on a weekly rate and start on a Monday with check-in from 1pm and the room must be vacated by 10am on the Monday of departure. We need to make special arrangements for late arrivals (after 5 pm), so please let us know in advance if this is required.


A deposit is required in advance to secure the booking. Payment can be by bank transfer or credit card.  Use the enquiry form below or email administrator@writerscentre.org.nz for availability.


Visiting writers must be engaged in a writing project or research.
