So much more than a bedroom - your space is on its own floor - stylish, with a separate bathroom & toilet, kitchenette, and sitting nook.
An outdoor deck is yours - seating and a spa pool with a sea view.

Enjoy a peaceful seaside village getaway close to Wellington city.
By the beach, and a few doors from the village hall. Paekakariki has great outdoor activities on the doorstep, with local cafes, delicatessen, fruit & vege shop, hotel, and general store all located in a quaint little village.

The space
As our guest you will have your own floor in our newish home, with a big bathroom (bath and shower), and separate toilet. These are not shared with the host.
A small, cosy sitting nook has books, magazines, a fridge, and facilities for hot drinks. Guests love to sit here and relax with a book and coffee.

Breakfast is self-serve, in your own area, and supplies replenished daily - Jan makes lovely home-made muesli.

A comfortable well appointed bedroom, with a queen-sized bed, a wardrobe, laptop table, free WIFI.

The laundry is on this floor, and can be used either for personal washing; or as a small kitchenette for microwave cooking, and doing dishes.

Great views of Kapiti Island can be seen from our home. There is a deck area for your own use where you can relax in the sun with a book or soak in the spa.

Where you’ll be

Paekakariki, Wellington, New Zealand

Paekakariki is a quaint little village with heaps of amenities. A real hideaway not far from the city and perfect for a relaxing weekend or to use as a base for activities. The village shops provide all the necessities, and is a two minute walk from our home.

Paekakariki Escarpment Walkway starts or finishes here.

Our own track to the beach means you can wander down for a swim in minutes, and in privacy. We have beach towels, boogie boards, and beach bag for your use.

Derek and I love living by the sea, and we especially love our view of Kapiti Island. We enjoy being able to pop down our private beach track and have a swim. The close proximity and ease of getting into Wellington city by train makes Paekakariki a great place to live, and visit. We are busy people with a large family, and 11 grandchildren, who have all left home. Derek is a counsellor working from home, and I (Jan) am semi-retired. I look after grandchildren, spend time on office work, do community work, and run Air BnB from our home. On our own holidays we always appreciate being able to come and go freely, eat breakfast in our own time and space, and at our own BnB you will do that easily. We have created a homely relaxed space, and want you to feel like you have been re-charged. You can stay put with books and coffee, or choose to take part in all the activities that Kapiti offers. We are both double-vaccinated and take seriously the Covid pandemic. Your health and safety is important to us.

Once you are welcomed and shown around, you will be left alone. We live in the same house, upstairs.
Jan will occasionally need to use the laundry and hallway, and is always available by text or a knock on the upstairs door.

We are aware that guests usually need a well-earned break, so we make a real effort not to intrude on your space.
