  • 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

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 10+) 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 (until April 2018 only) 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.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only - a private patio is provided. No loud/boozy parties please. If downstairs flat is booked separately, avoid loud noise that may disturb their peace. Bring your own towels for the beach to help keep the house towels in order. Please leave the house how you found it. The small cleaning/linen fee is for light cleaning - time required to deal with extra mess/damage will need to be paid for.

    We were a family of 12 including 5 children and the house was more than adequate to accommodate us all. We loved the location of the property as we were within walking distance to the beach and park, a 5min drive to the local shopping centre and short drive to Wellington. Would love to stay again should our family travels bring us back to Paraparaumu.
