  • In the heart of Paraparaumu beach near the beach, boating club, shops, park and golf club
  • A quiet and tidy well-appointed hideaway near the amenities - able to host small or large groups
  • Great value options for a gracious self-contained house and/or flat with a beach experience

Your sanctuary on the Kapiti Coast. Our self-contained home and/or flat provide the perfect way to connect with beautiful Paraparaumu Beach centred in the hub of the beach community. Being two properties in one, if the calendar says 'maybe' booked, one of them may still be available and can be booked separately.

'Manaaki', is a gracious two-story property of a long time Kapiti Island family who still operate on and around the island - your stay helps us keep the place going as a base. Manaaki comprises an upstairs 3brm house (sleeps 8+) and a downstairs queen bedroom (sleeps 2) and separate self-contained flat (sleeps 4+). Fold-up beds/mattresses are available for extras. Linen and cleaning charge per head can be negotiated if you want to do your own - either way, bring beach towels if needing some for the beach.

Upstairs and down can be rented separately or together with both separate or combined entrances for privacy or shared space. Upstairs bookings cost an extra $20 per night on the base rate - there is more space, sunroom, a dishwasher, bath, full oven and BBQ on the patio. Unless requested, preference will be approve smaller groups (1 to 6ppl) to the flat (plus queen if available), which is easier for us to maintain and allows larger groups to book upstairs.

Front garage and one of three off-street parks are used from time to time by owners.

Key facilities just a stroll away include Paraparaumu Beach Boating Club, golf club and beach shopping centre. Walk to the Saturday market, McClean park & skateboard facility or just enjoy watching the boats come and go.

  • Good location close to beach and shops

    Good location close to beach and shops. Comfortable beds and able to heat both bedrooms. Access to second bedroom via passageway shared with owner. Prefer accommodation with fewer personal family items but very homely if that is what one wants.
