Sunny 70's three bedroom house, with separate bath, shower, and toilet rooms. We've had fun with a top to toe, inside and outside refurbishment. The kitchen is well equipped, the furnishings are eclectic, and the beds and bedding comfy. There are lots of books, DVD, Freeview TV, a kid cave for small kids and big kids, and even a stereo that plays vinyls!! A sumptuous breakfast basket is provided and we can do antipasto platters, BBQ packs, and picnic baskets for you too. Complementary marshmallows for toasting on the outdoor fire. The house is sunny and warm with two fireplaces, electric heating in the bedrooms and electric blankets. The outdoor areas are large, with sunny patios, sprawling lawns, country views, barbeque and outdoor fire. Great spaces for children and dogs, all securely fenced for safety. Several wedding and function centres are nearby and we'll even pick you up afterwards. We live five minutes away. Otaki is to many an undiscovered gem with it's cafes, outlet shopping, artisan galleries, specialty food supplies, markets, pick you own veges, wholesale plant nurseries, historic places, antique shops and the beach just 10 minutes away. Perfect place for a family getaway or a girls' weekend. There are golf courses, the Tararua Forest Park, cycling on and off road, tramping, fishing, horse riding, an adventure park for kids, or simply places for a leisurely country stroll. Just a few of the local events include the Manakau Medieval Market, Ruth Pretty Cooking School, Otaki Races, Horowhenua A P and I Show, Kapiti and Horowhenua Art Trails, Organic River Festival, Waikanae Garden Trail, Balloon Festival, and Kite Festival. We've tried to think of everything, so go on, drive a few kilometres and be inspired, invigorated and rejuvenated - Simply time to relax and recharge your batteries.
