Beach house on the Kapiti Coast - just an hour north of Wellington City. While our house lacks sea views, it has direct beach access. It is also quiet and private.

The space

There is one large bedroom with king bed, and a spacious open-plan lounge/dining/kitchen area. The kitchen is new! We have also recently replaced all the windows with double-glazing which means the house is both warm in winter and cool in summer. There is an attached garage which also contains the laundry. The section is well-fenced and we have a private patio with a spa pool. The outdoor garden is great for BBQs in summer.

Guest access

Single level. No stairs. Good access.

Notes

We run an Airbnb guest house on the property in a separate cottage. This is managed by my excellent co-host when we are away.

Neighbourhood

The local neighborhood is well serviced by shops, cinemas, restaurants, cafes and a great local markets on Saturday mornings. It is a safe and welcoming community. Kapiti Island nature sanctuary is a popular destination for visitors. The Kapiti Coast is known for its nature walks and attractions.

Getting around

Paraparaumu Beach only an hour by car to Wellington City CBD. You can also bus and then train into Wellington from our home. Many people commute to the city for work. While others have retired here to enjoy the pleasant climate. Our home is 2 kilometres from the local shops, so a 5 minute drive, 10 minute bike ride or 20 minute walk. You can even walk along the beach to the shops. There is garaging for a car. It is possible we could make a car available.

Travelling group
We're both semi-retired after selling our business in 2019. I am now building an online business, and community, for women over 50 at www.sheloveslifeover50.com. Grant enjoys Muay Thai to keep fit. We like to travel slow, and use 7 kg carry-on packs only which means we can be very flexible with our travel arrangements. We are open to travelling anywhere but are focused on Asia this year as we have tickets to the Rugby World Cup in Japan in October 2019. We are do both simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchanges as we have a guest house on our property which is listed on Airbnb when not occupied.
Member description
Grant and I live with our old chihuahua/pekingese dog, Evie, in our simple home on the beach. We have four adult children who live in New Zealand and Australia, and one delightful grand-daughter who lives nearby. She stays over with us quite often.
