Passing through Wellington but don’t want to stay in the city?
Then visit our lovely coastal village 30 minutes north of Wellington on State Highway 1 (with trains every 30 minutes to/from Wellington).
11 Wellington Road, Paekakariki – see MAP below

Walk up the path (or take the 35 steps) to our hilltop hideaway and be rewarded with great sea views across Cook Strait to the South Island, spectacular sunsets and a 2 minute walk to a long, uncrowded sandy beach.

Local attractions include the Kapiti Cheese Factory, Nyco Chocolate Factory, Kapiti Island Bird Sanctuary and 4×4 hire.

Our local village has 3 restaurants (and another one 20 minutes walk down the beach), two fish and chip shops, a bar, and fruit/vegetable and grocery shops. For more extensive shopping, the Paraparaumu Shopping Centre is 10km up the road.
CLOSE TO WELLINGTON IF YOU NEED IT.
A WORLD AWAY IF YOU DON’T.
