We live in a relaxed beach area. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk along the beach to either Raumati Beach or Parapaumu Beach where there are local shops and many excellent restaurants and bars. We are a 5 minute drive to the Paraparaumu Beach golf course regularly rated in the top 100 courses in the world. Also very close to Kapiti Island bird sanctuary and Southwards car museum, the largest in the Southern hemisphere.

Getting around

There is a regular bus service at the end of our street that will take you to a shopping mall and the railway station. The train ride to Wellington is very scenic. Or you can borrow our car to visit other places in the region. We will meet you when you arrive and help you settle in
