  • Private, charming cottage nestled at the end of a quiet lane with views to the hills
  • Great outdoor living with sunny deck and child-friendly garden
  • Short stroll to the beach (only minutes away!), shops and great cafes

Come and relax in a warm, comfortable cottage close to all the great things Raumati South has to offer! You can enjoy the sun in different living spaces throughout the day or for winter escapes there is a Pyroclassic woodburner and a heat pump to provide winter cosiness.

The living area has french doors to a large deck for barbecues or relax in the garden or lounge looking back to the hills.

It is a child-friendly property with a trampoline and treehouse and has books and toys aplenty and also WIFI. The Lane is very quiet and safe with a 15km limit and being the last house on the Lane, has very minimal traffic. There is also a playground, skatepark and tennis court a couple of minutes away.

The local beach is safe and oh so close. It has an esplanade that is perfect for children on bikes and buggies. Walk along the beach in either direction and soak up the sun or the beautiful sunsets.

There is also the large regional, coastal park, Queen Elizabeth Park, which sits between Raumati South and Paekakariki. It has great mountain bike/walk paths all through it. The entrance to the park is also close by.

There are two great cafes with regular music and great coffee to choose from in Raumati South, a well-stocked Four Square and a fish and chip shop. Raumati Beach, just up the way, has boutique shops, a great bakery and the fantastic Marine Gardens that has a water park feature, playground and miniature trains.

Kapiti really has something for everyone: from the golf courses (including renowned Paraparaumu Beach Golf Course) to Kapiti Island's nature reserve and bird sanctuary; from the mountain bike tracks/walks at Whareroa Farm to the new aquatic centre; from the native bush walks of the Nikau or Hemi Matenga Reserves to being among the friendly Raumati South locals who have many musicians, artists and poets among them performing locally; and from the Kapiti Coast tramway to the scenic flights or gliding at Kapiti Coast Airport.

Special conditions: Smoking is allowed outside only. We have a six year old and four year old who reside here so property is child friendly. We have guards available for the stairs and fire so please let us know if you need these for toddlers. Even though there is a cleaning fee, please leave the house tidy.

  • Everything was as advertised

    Everything was as advertised. Location was great: quiet, private and just a short walk to the beach, playground or shops. The property was spacious, relaxed and homely - perfect for an easy time with children.

    Location is fantastic just a few minutes to the beach, cafe, shop and chip shop. Great location for exploring nearby too and only 40 minutes from Wellington. The house is beautiful with a great garden complete with trampoline and tree house perfect for the kids. Excellent communication from the owner ensured our stay was comfortable, enjoyable and relaxing. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends
