It doesn't get better than this! Enter through the Japanese Garden to a stunning, private retreat with sensational views of Kapiti, Mana, and the South Island - not to mention the sunsets! Wander down the garden to Paekakariki's peaceful beach and enjoy a swim or take a short stroll to the village and the best coffee on the Kapiti Coast. Many enjoy the trek from Paekok to Pukerua Bay throughout the year.

As you enter the Beach Retreat you are captivated by incredible sea views so you rarely notice the stunning open plan lounge / kitchen / dining. The gorgeous master suite is upstairs, a charming double bedroom off the living area, and two further bedrooms are on the ground level opening to an expansive deck. The bathrooms are modern and the ground level bathroom has a large claw footed bath to soak up some down time in. A further bathroom leads off from the living area where you will also find a beautiful sauna.

This house is well insulated with double glazing, a heat pump and a fireplace. The kitchen is fully stocked with all you could need for a fabulous stay. Modern oven, ceramic stove top, dishwasher and double fridge makes this open plan kitchen / dining a pleasure to work in while glancing at the ocean and sunset views.

The Beach Retreat is a 100 m away from the entrance to the Paekakariki to Pukerua Bay 10km trek; 15 min walk to the entrance of Queen Elizabeth Park, where you can bike, walk or run up the coast to Raumati (or drive up to coastland to access all main retail stores (10 min drive). Paekakariki is a foodie's delight with a cafe, deli, pub with restaurant and boutique movie theatre, small greengrocers, foodstore, bookshop and gallery - enjoy.

A breathtaking property where you can relax on the decks soaking in the seaviews and listening to the waves; snuggle up by the fireplace or sweat it out in the sauna. Your expectations will be exceeded.

  • The Beach Retreat had everything to make a holiday memorable

    The Beach Retreat had everything to make a holiday memorable. We were two sets of grandparents and various grown-up kids and grandchildren - and we had a marvelous time. The photos only tell half the story - the house is comfortable and well appointed and wonderfully positioned for swimming and watching the sea and sunsets. The village has everything we needed - organic vegetables to wine. Thank you Anna.

  • Great peaceful place

    Great peaceful place. The roaring ocean is the loudest thing there, which is wonderful! Perfect beach escape. A quick walk down the steps to the beach and Wow! Not to mention the awesome decking areas to sit on. The comfy couch to look at the view (Or the tv) from and the numerous bedrooms to choose from. We loved it, very restful and recuperating place, and we hope to return soon.
