  • Right on the beach, private, all day sun, glorious sunsets.....

Sunny, peaceful and relaxing with a beautiful view of Kapiti Island , this property is special!

The kitchen flows into the living room with garden and sea views and there is a woodburner for cosy nights. The sunny, warm conservatory provides an additional sitting area by day.

There is a flat lawn both to the back and front of the cottage providing plenty of space for barbecues and play area.

Easy access onto the beach - even for kayaks and other water toys! The beach has fine soft sand, drift wood and shells and is a wonderful playground for children -( beach cricket etc)..Nearby at the river mouth kite boarders make the most of the wind and waves.

There is a well stocked dairy and 4 good local cafes/ restaurants within walking distance.

Local activities include golf, kite boarding, kayaking, land yachting, fishing, summer swimming, tennis and horse riding. Waikanae Pool offers heated outdoor swimming and picnics for families (in summer), while the Waikanae Golf Club provides excellent facilities for the keen golfer.

  • Stunning spot on the beachfront

    Stunning spot on the beachfront. Spotlessly clean and well appointed, I highly recommend this property.

  • I have to admit we had been first a little bit disappointed...

    I have to admit we had been first a little bit disappointed when entering the bach. The furniture and interieur is really old. Also we had a strange smell in the bach which came from the fridge-drain- After cleaning it this was ok. The bach is completely equipped with everything you need and the view and distance to the beach can not be beaten, in my opinion. This makes of course the charme and price of that bach. The owner of the property is also a very nice person. We would stay there again!

  • A very cosy bach - everyone commented on how 'homely' it felt

    A very cosy bach - everyone commented on how 'homely' it felt. Gorgeous garden and amazing location - there's a small path just out the front that takes you to the beach in about 10 seconds. The sleepout attached to the garage is new and in fab condition (bathroom, laundry, double bedroom + single bed) - a real bonus of the property! We absolutely loved our stay. Thank you, Catherine!

  • Weather only prohibited more use of outdoor table/ space

    Weather only prohibited more use of outdoor table/ space. Fantastic seaview location. Outhouse was a big hit with young people. Convenient having sunroom space, granny slept happily there. Extremely well decked out with appliances, wifi, comfy chairs and large table. Thanks
