  • Ideal for families

Sandgate is a fully equipped family home set on the sand dunes of Waikanae Beach with a commanding view from the large living room of Kapiti Island, Marlborough Sounds, and the shoreline from Paraparaumu to Otaki. Sandgate is a family home that has been in the same family for more than 50 years, and as such it is particularly suitable for families. The unobstructed view of the beach and ocean has been very popular with our previous guests. Sandgate is a pleasant half mile walk along the beach to the cafes and grocery stores. The beach immediately in front of Sandgate is safe for swimming year round.

Dogs are welcome but are not permitted in the bedrooms or on the furniture.

Special conditions: $300 per night minimum 5 nights during Christmas holiday period (Dec 15 through Jan 31). $220 per night minimum 2 nights at other times. $75 cleaning fee per rental. Negotiable for longer periods and outside holiday time.

  • Lovely location and fully equipped

    Lovely location and fully equipped. Great back yard with beautiful views. If you're looking for a relaxing weekend I would recommend booking this place. There's wifi and sky sports which is great.

  • This property was great for a relaxing weekend

    This property was great for a relaxing weekend. The views of Kapiti Island, sand dunes and beach were wonderful. It is well stocked with board games, movies, books and sky TV if you want it. We really enjoyed the open fire and the mid-century style architecture. Our dog went ballistic on the beach - thanks for sharing the place
