Gillian is a lovely, thoughtful host!! I enjoyed some really nice conversations with her, but was also able to get work done when I needed to. I would recommend her place as a nice, quiet get away from the city, or an easy place to stay for school or work in the Kapiti area.

Gillian is a lovely woman and her house was very conveniently situated for the conference I was attending at Kapiti College. This accommodation is well recommended.

A quiet location. We were really only there to sleep as were attending a six day event in Raumati – the homestay was close to our venue and adequate for our purposes. We found the room adequate – perhaps a bit small for two people. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom and toilet…

Gillian, the hostess. was lovely and made me feel very welcome. nothing was too much to ask for. I would recommend her place to stay to anyone looking for a very well priced bed and breakfast in the heart of Paraparaumu.

Gillian was the perfect host and the tw o nights I spent at her house were great. She was available when needed but was in no way intrusive. I would recommend Gill and her property to anybody going to the Kapiti Coast.
