Absolute Beach Front Magic

 We had a fantastic time. We actually had my daughters Hen's night a Gatsby Night. It was perfect. All the ladies had a great time. The view was to die for, upstairs it was like the sea came straight into your bedroom. The Spa was a bit hot but lovely all the same. Would highly recommend this place.

Luxury studio with private spa and heated pool.

 Modern, close to beach, lovely facilities. Breakfast items provided are good quality and much more selection than expected (we loved the muffins and juice) also included bread, cereals, yogurt/berries, tea/coffee. 

Seamore Bach Beachfront Paraparaumu Beach ManlySt

 The bach was everything we were looking for. Very private and secure. Loaded with extras such as a great library of books, DVDs if we did not want to watch SkyTV and plenty of kitchen crockery etc. Great location to the safe beach. Loads of walks in the area. Local shops only a short walk away and great restaurants a little further away. The section is well fenced so we could leave our small dogs when we went to Wellington with no worries. Will definitely look at booking this property again. 

Kapiti Resort - Paraparaumu Beach Executive Rental

 We had a very enjoyable stay with family. Kids loved swimming and the tennis court. A lovely big home and grounds. Close to shops and beach. We look forward to returning in the near future. Thank you

Stay, Play, Rest, Relax

 Excellent property, really tastefully furnished with a few creature comforts. My partner loved the bedsocks. Even though we didnt want to get up from the comfy bed at least we had plunger coffee to ease the pain. Fresh fruit bowl and vege garden were the icing on the cake and really set the garden shed out from the others. 

Absolute Beach Front Cottage - Bramley Cottage

 Wow what a fantastic place to stay. So close to the beach. Very clean and tidy. Will definitely be back to stay again.
