Koitiata, Turakina Beach is a small and friendly community only 30 minutes from Wanganui and Marton. The house is located on the beach front with large glass sliding doors that open up on to the huge deck that gives you 180 degree views from Wellington to Mt Taranaki. Close to the campground and across the road from a good children's playground and the main entrance to the beach. Beach has four wheel drive access. Great for bird watching, fishing, four wheel driving along the beach, dirtbikes and quads.

West coast beaches have a lot of character and are constantly changing. Black sand and driftwood abounds but there is still plenty of room to go for walks or do a bit of beachcombing and explore.

Modern facilities including dishwasher and washing machine.

Wireless Internet is available via Inspire Prepay with options for 1 day, weekend (3 days) or month. Payment for this is via credit/debit card. Please note that this is for a single device. Extra devices require their own accounts.

Red Bach Art Gallery just down the road.

There are no shops but Turakina Service Station is 10 minutes drive away or head into Wanganui to stock up. The community has a potluck dinner at the hall on the first Saturday of the month. We have a small chest freezer that can be used for longer stays or storing fish bait and fish.

Cell phone coverage is available but can be patchy.

We have recently installed a log burner downstairs. There are other heaters that can be moved around as needed.

Special conditions: Main living area and kitchen is upstairs. Baby gate available. Maximum occupancy is 10. There are bed configurations for 8-10 people with extra mattresses available. If a cot is required please let us know ahead of time. Garage space available for motorbikes/quads and your 'toys'. Plenty of parking for trailers etc. Let us know ahead of time. Cleaning available $30 for 1-5 guests, $50 for 6 and over

    This is windswept coast with wild dunes - great for brisk walks and beach combing. The house is well equipped with films, books and games. The kitchen is well-equipped too.

    Great kitchen with everything we needed to use for cooking - also ample cleaning supplies, laundry, towels etc. Great location, plenty of space. Wood burner was easy to use and warmed the house quickly.

  • We all enjoyed our stay

    We all enjoyed our stay. Very good facilities, lovely bathroom and kitchen area. It was great to have the sea view which all could enjoy including those not able to walk on the beach (and made up for the wild weather). One staying who uses crutches and has an ongoing disability felt she would not be able to manage the stairs in future though. The BBQ on the deck kept falling over in the wind. It was picked up once but soon went down again and was left.
