Waikanae Beach is considered the best beach in this part of the country. It comes alive in summer with a real kiwiana vibe. The water is safe to swim in and our place is so close, just a ten minute stroll. At the end of our quiet street, not even a minute away is the beautiful Queen's Rd Reserve, with playground, park and nature reserve. Nearby there are some great cafes that have craft beers, wines and summer gardens with chilled live music at weekends. The best outdoor pools in the Welly region are a few minutes' drive away and it's just 5 mins up to the main town for supermarkets and all the other stuff, including rail to Wellington. The city itself is about 45 mins away or less with new Kapiti expressway opening. The district has much to offer, and this house is a great base! It's our home, and will have all the stuff you need for a great holiday. It's elevated, has the BEST backyard for chilling and bbqs, with a view to the sea. It gets really good sun and the section has decent fences and gates, so the littlies can't escape! Could fit a small boat in the driveway and the boat club does launches (and good food and cheap beers!) just a minute's drive down the road- and the fishing is great! We love living here, and you'll love staying here while we're away! Feeding our two fur babies (cats) is a major part of the rental deal (food supplied), so please only book if you're happy to do that!

Special conditions: TWO CATS TO BE FED AND TREATED NICELY AS PART OF RENTAL DEAL! NO DOGS ALLOWED. (Price reflects this.) Food supplied. Contact person available if any issues. Respectful guests required, as this is our home and we love it! Locked garage out of bounds. Please leave the house as you found it - clean and vacuumed. A fee will be charged if this is not the case. Blankets/pillows/duvet inners supplied, but please bring own pillowslips, sheets and duvet covers, (or sleeping bags), plus towels.
