We are by the beach, and a few doors from the village hall. Paekakariki has great outdoor activities on the doorstep, with the local cafe, delicatessen, fruit 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, and a wardrobe.
A Freeview TV is in the bedroom.
WiFi code is in the room.

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.

Guest access
Access to your floor is through a separate outside door into our laundry/kitchenette. A concrete sloping path leads to the entrance ( no stairs to climb). You will be given a key on arrival.
The laundry is available, and doubles as a kitchenette, with a microwave
for your use. There is a clothes line handy and you can ask about the dryer downstairs for a gold coin donation.

Other things to note
Breakfast is simple and self-serve: home-made muesli, fresh fruit, tinned fruit, yoghurt, toast and spreads, coffee and a selection of teas.
There is a small fridge with milk and supplies.
All supplies are available in your sitting nook and replenished each day.

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.

During your stay
Once you are welcomed and shown around, you will usually be left alone. We live in the same house, upstairs.
Jan will occasionally need to use the laundry and hallway, and she 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 try to gauge how much interaction is needed.
You will likely only see Jan and Derek once a day.
