This tastefully revitalised 1920's villa is located opposite Otaki's beautiful beach. It has trendy decor throughout with modern furnishings, and all the comforts of home. The house comfortably sleeps five. The bathroom is up to date with easy outside access - and includes a washing machine! There's a TV with Freeview, great DVDs, and lots of books for relaxing inside on cooler or rainy days! We have a good selection of board games and puzzles.
Cook indoors utilising the fully fitted kitchen - or choose alfresco dining in the outdoor area with gas BBQ and courtyard seating. We even have a picnic table for the kiddies. The courtyard is the perfect private, sheltered spot. The lovely water feature is mesmerising, sparkling at night. You will see our maiden, or "kohine" in Maori - for whom the house is named.
Just cross the road and you're at the beach! Otaki beach is the best beach along the Kapiti coast, with uninterrupted, flat coastline and safe swimming. We have chairs, beach towels and toys. As you look out at Kapiti island, all your worries and cares will disappear! Sunrise and sunset are breathtaking.
An hour from Wellington or Palmerston North and you're in a world filled with natural beauty - the beach, rivers, estuary, Otaki Gorge and Tararua ranges. Horse riding, tramping, picnicking, trout fishing, kayaking, cycling and golfing, as well as swimmin pool and gym, are all within easy distance. Museums, a library, and local events add a cultural dimension to your stay. We have up to date information and maps onsite for you.
Otaki has over 35 outlet stores, a Sunday market, supermarkets, a butcher and bakery. Lots of takeaways - fish and chips, Chinese, Indian, and sushi! Head to the dairy for an ice cream on your way to the playground.
