  • One minute's walk to Kapiti's best beach via private way. Private spa. Shared heated swimming pool.

The Tennis Pavilion is a sunny and spacious bach just one house back from the beach and adjacent to Longshore beach house. Ranchsliders open onto an all weather tennis court on one side and onto small private and open patio areas under timber pergolas on the other three sides.

The pavilion is well equipped, with leather couches, coffee table, dining table/chairs for 6 and smart TV, DVD and stereo at one end, and a kitchen along one side. There’s a splitable super-king bed. A new small room-within-a-room has 2 pairs of bunk beds - all brand new. (Feather & down duvets and pillows are supplied; linen is optional.) There's a compact bathroom with luxury shower, and a laundry in a cupboard. A ceiling heat pump will quietly keep you warm or cool.

The pavilion is easy-access, with car parking at the door and bus stop nearby. There’s a Weber barbecue and an outdoor picnic table on a small private patio, and a large shared trampoline is a few metres away.

Waikanae Beach is just a minute’s walk away, via a private right-of-way. There’s even a hot & cold outdoor shower to wash off the sand and sea salt!

Guests have access to the shared heated outdoor swimming pool at Seabreeze next door, and the Pavilion now has its own private mini-spa pool.

The Tennis Pavilion is suitable for a family of one or two adults and up to four children. It's ideal for a couple wanting to sharpen their tennis skills, parents coaching their children, or a family simply wishing to enjoy tennis, swimming, beach walks and local sightseeing. It's a great base from which to enjoy Kapiti’s many attractions including beaches, bush walks, restaurants, shopping and museums.

Waikanae is 45 minutes from Wellington by car or 60 minutes by frequent train service, with connecting bus to Waikanae Beach.

    Wonderful setup, everything you could possibly want or need from scuba boards for the littlies to dvds for the family alike. The sea was on our doorstep and the spa and pool beckoned us at our fingertips. l highly recommend this bach and my only regret is I didnt book longer.

    The location is surperb, a short walk and you are at the beach - and you have the use of a pool, tramp, and tennis court. There was always something to do- especially with 2.5 teenagers to consider. The tennis pavilion had everything you need for a get away. Easy access, spa pool, Weber Q, perfectly appointed kitchen and bathroom, Smart TV and comfy beds and sofa. We are planning to return and rent one of the larger homes and the Pavilion for an extended family group.

  • We are a tennis family

    We are a tennis family. The tennis pavillion was perfect for us. It had everything we needed. We have two teens (13&16) and the bunks were fine for them. When we come back to the area we will definitely consider the same spot.
