Longshore is a sprawling beach house with great indoor-outdoor flow, directly adjacent to the brilliant Waikanae beach. Eight generous bedrooms accommodate 20 guests in quality beds, and there are 2 additional mattresses - all new.

This big house really will accommodate large groups, without compromise. By day, soak up the sun on the beachfront decks and lawns. Play tennis or swim in the heated outdoor pool, then enjoy a BBQ lunch at the long table in the courtyard. In the evening, enjoy a pre-dinner drink and watch the sunset from the mezzanine Kapiti room, then share dinner with friends or family around the huge dining table at the heart of the house. Relax in the spacious lounge with Sky TV, or watch the night sky from the new spa pool. In the morning, breakfast in the kitchen diner with woodburner or on the sunny decks, then step onto the beach to swim, walk, play or relax.

Children will love the easy access to the beach for swimming or boogie-boarding etc. The outdoor fort and sunny playroom with craft table and toys will keep little ones amused. Older kids will relish the private crash pad and the big trampoline. The rumpus room suits all ages, with table tennis, foosball, darts, pool table, etc - no rainy-day blues for anyone!

Longshore is a perfect venue for corporate retreats or small conferences. The huge dining table doubles as a spacious boardroom table for 16 and can also be split into 3 tables of 8. There are multiple breakout rooms and unlimited WiFi. After the work’s done, your team can swim, beach-walk, play tennis, let off steam in the rumpus room or relax in the spa pool. NB: Longshore is GST registered.
