General overview

This is what a recent guest said: "I wish I could give TEN STARS for this location!! Leigh was AMAZING, the place was AMAZING, and the location was unbelievable! Literally 100 metres from the beach. I wish we could've stayed for longer!! Am coming back next year for sure!!" Great location to: VISIT KAPITI ISLAND, RELAX by the beach, or for a STOPOVER an hour from Wellington. Step into the cottage and instantly you'll feel refreshed and relaxed in the quiet, airy surrounding."

Neighbourhood

We are less than an hour north of Wellington (New Zealand's capital city) by car or train. It is a safe, family friendly neighbourhood. Paraparaumu Beach is a town on the Kapiti Coast, which consists of a string of seaside towns with plenty of cafes, restaurants and is a great location for outdoor activities. It is very easy to visit the famous Kapiti Island, which is wildlife sanctuary. Wellington city contains lots of interesting cultural activities including New Zealand's national museum (called Te Papa). Wellington also has the reputation for its cafe/coffee culture.

Getting to my home

Drive less than one hour north from Wellington. Or catch the train.

Nearest airport

Wellington International Airport is one hour by car. Or can be accessed by train and bus.

Getting around

It's probably best if you have a car (and it may be possible we could make one available). Otherwise we provide two bicycles. There is a cafe, mini supermarket, liquor store, fish'n'chip/Chinese takeaway and bakery within 5 minutes walk. If you're coming by intercity bus or train,you can take a bus from the railway station. The nearest bus stop is a 5 minute walk.
