Bring your bikes, tennis rackets or kayaks and play in the surf or paddle up the the estuary and explore the river. Shopping at the Otaki factory outlets are only 15 minutes away.

If all the activities are too much, just chill out with a book on the sheltered deck or sit in the chairs atop the dune and survey the expansive vistas of your weekend kingdom.

    We had a great stay at Puds Inn and hope to be back next year. It’s a comfortable place with a very well equipped kitchen (we were delighted to find a Nespresso machine!) The location is great - the beach here is wonderful with super soft sand and amazing shells. The view of Kapiti Island from upstairs and from the top of the dune is very special, especially at sunset. Thank you!
