The SpaceHuge upstairs master bedroom that looks out to spectacular views. A peaceful haven, just a 40 metre walk down our private walkway to the sea. Long flat beach allowing you to walk in either direction for a very long way! All day sun, winter and summer. The house is on a flat section and there is easy access ( you can drive right to the front door). Exquisite sunsets as the sun sets on the horizon for most of the year. The house is very well-equipped; great little kitchen, dining table and chairs, sofas, large master bedroom with comfortable queen bed, small bunk-room with 2 sets of comfortable bunks , small bathroom with deep bath/shower, separate laundry with washing machine and dryer. You are welcome to use everything we use.. the books, games, Dvds, petanque, bikes, kayaks, trampoline, barbecue . This house is ideal for a couple because the upstairs master bedroom is spacious, comfortable and has wonderful views. The bunk-room downstairs is small and is really only suitable for young children. Guest AccessEverything in the house, laundry and garage can be used by guests. The bach ( NZ word for a beach house, and pronounced 'batch'!) is well equipped with everything you might need. Interaction with GuestsUsually I do not meet guests who stay just a few days but I send them a document which is very clear about access and all the info about the house.

The bach is mid-way between Paraparaumu Beach and Raumati Beach and close to the sea ( Tasman Sea) There is a shuttle service from Wellington Airport which would meet you and deliver you straight to the house ( Kapiti Shuttles) Recently a family of 4 stayed and the shuttle cost $120 from Wellington airport to our bach at Raumati.
