  • 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.

  • The property is waterfront - feels like a home

    The property is waterfront - feels like a home. We slept in the sleepout as we had seafront bed, shrubs for privacy and were able to sleep with door open. Instant relaxation.

  • Fantastic beach location, great to be so close to the sea out...

    Fantastic beach location, great to be so close to the sea out the front doors. We loved the sunroom and also the wood-burner for cosy evenings. Clean and tidy and well presented. Well equipped kitchen. A homely bach which we plan to return to in the future.

  • Furniture was dirty and uncomfortable

    Furniture was dirty and uncomfortable. The place was cluttered and stunk. There was someone living there, they left their clothes/shoes in waldrobes. The fridge was full of their food, could not fit ours in. I had to vaccume before I could stay and clean out the fridge to get rid of the terrible smell. The sleepout had washing, suitcase and boxes in it. I have photos and emails. happy to share them. Location was stunning. I received a full refund. Catherine was nice.

    We had warned the Guest that someone was temporarily staying during the week and asked if she was ok with their personal effects left in the sleep-out. She said 'no problem as they wouldn't be needing the sleep-out'. Unfortunately there were other things left in the main house, but not as described above. A cleaner had been in the day before her arrival. He had noticed a smell which he thought was from a ripe cheese in the fridge. After the refund, she enjoyed a free stay.

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