Places to stay in Otaki Beach
Super clean and modern two bedroom cottage just minutes away from sunny Otaki Beach. Bearing in mind the current scare with the Coronavirus, I would like to stress that the cottage is cleaned thoroughly after each stay. We take pride in our high standard in this regard. The Little Grey Cottage offers all of the comforts of home in a very pleasing and relaxing environment. It has everything you need for your stay. Long walks on the beach are a must especially if you bring your fur baby!
Enjoy the laid back community and close location to the beach with lifeguards on duty - you can hear the waves breaking at night. One block over you can grab a takeaway coffee for your walk on the beach or stay and chat with the friendly locals! Whatever your pleasure, I know that you will enjoy your stay =)
The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly. People who pass by say hello and stop and chat if you are keen. Otaki Beach is sunny and picturesque - always have your camera with you. The beach is very dog friendly and, I must say, dogs absolutely LOVE it here!
  • Crystal’s communication was concise and accurate. Easy check in, the cottage was clean and tidy and perfect for our two nights spent in Otaki. Thanks Crystal!

  • An amazing little house in the perfect location. We loved popping over to the beach with our dog, it was so so close. Everything was clean and tidy, and the bed was huge and really comfy. Would love to stay here again soon!

  • The little grey cottage was a perfect place for my partner and I to base ourselves either side of our wedding in Peka Peka. The cottage is very clean and tidy and the host is so friendly! It’s such a bonus to be able to bring our dog along with us also. Thanks again!

  • Great wee cottage, one street back from the beach. Comfy beds. Crystal's communication was brilliant, and check-in/check-out was very easy. We didn't really use the kitchen, but it looked like it has everything you would need to prepare a meal.

    Otaki Beach, Wellington, New Zealand

    Iconic Kiwi Bach .. Enjoy a long weekend or a mid week getaway at The Otaki Beach House. The beach is just a stroll across the road, (absolute beach front with unobstructive views of Kapiti island) the Otaki river is just a short walk/bike ride away and the sunset over Kapiti Island is something not to miss!! Don't worry you can view this from the deck while having a summer BBQ - all you could ask for!
    The whole Bach is yours. Built from demolition materials that were saved up over years
    Our place is close to the river for summer swims and nature walks
  • A typical kiwi bach set back from Ōtaki’s pebbly beach. Filled with memories, without modern electronic distractions, but with all the amenities you need. The house has picturesque views of the ocean and Kapiti Island and plenty of lawn to play on. A great place for time out from the city.

    Oliver2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The bach was amazing! It's such a charming, unique home, we definitely fell in love with it. I'd recommend it to anyone, don't think twice, this is the place to be in Otaki! This was practically on the beach, plus had lots of great family board games, so we had the best of time together :-)

    Paulius2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to stay in a quirky kiwi Bach then this is it.

    Renee2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The house was spacious, well equipped, comfortable, right by the beach, and nicely quirky.

    Joris2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Gregg, a lovely place to stay. TV a bit of a challenge. loved your decor and the fact you provided bedding, towels and tea towels. Would love to come again. lovely views. I agree that a shade sail would help on hot sunny evenings.

    Olivia2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • What a spot! Classic kiwi bach overflowing with character and charm. An instant homely feel as soon as you step in the door and hours of things to look at, true bach living. Thank you!

  • There is a reason this place has so many 5 star reviews. The house is immaculate, Brenda is a sweet host, and it is right across from the beach with amazing sunset views. At first we thought we would be disappointed being across the road and not on the beach, but this was not an issue. We have 3 kids (4, 8, 10) and the beach / ocean were perfect for them. There was also a really nice playground, a couple of restaurants, and a mini-mart all within walking distance. We stayed for two nights on our way down from Tongariro NP to Wellington and we wish we had stayed longer!

    Francesca2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beachfront Retreat is special, it is very modern, comfy, clean and had everything we could possibly need for a great stay. Brenda was not available to meet us but had sent through details to make everything easy. There were enough bits in the house to provide the basics for meals, tea, coffee, milk etc. John and I highly recommend this venue and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you Brenda, for a great stay.

    Penny2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very beautiful beach house with great sunset and beach view. The host is nice and the house is fully equipped with facilities for all the need. Good experience here!

    大明2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was an absolute dream staying at Otaki Beachfront Getaway. Brenda was incredible to deal with and provided everything we needed, and gave great instructions. We had a very late arrival and were able to enter the house easily through getting the key from a lock box. The house was spotless, comfortable and modern. Linen and towels wonderful, and every comfort thought of. It even had an iron and ironing board! Fantastic as we were in Otaki for a wedding. We loved the location, too. Right across the road from the beach. It was lovely to listen to the waves as you fell off to sleep. And also a beautiful beach to walk along. We didn't have time for a swim during our short two night stay, but Brenda had thoughtfully provided beach towels also, just in case we did. Thank you also Brenda for providing us with some milk and some basics. Great for morning cups of tea as we didn't have time to get in supplies. It was really appreciated. Would highly recommend and would love to come back for a longer stay to enjoy this amazing part of the world. We were rapt to find a cafe just around the corner, plus fish n chips just around the corner too. Great recommendations and a great spot to relax. Thank you Brenda.

    Carolyn2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

  • Fantastic property and perfect location. Our children just couldn't get enough of the beach and the property location (just across the road from the beach) was ideal. Very comfortable for 4 adults and 2 children. Additional outdoor shower to wash off that sand was a bonus. Highly recommend.

    Josephine2020-01-23T00:00:00Z

Inside, it's got amazing amenities (including a large TV with Netflix), thoughtful touches (e.g. 4 different types of salt, olive oil, plunger coffee etc.). It is decorated with great taste, the bed is really comfortable and the house offers privacy. It feels very cozy inside. So, yes, I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. Thank you Deb for the great hospitality.

    Romantic sleepout on lifestyle block, very quiet area, close to beach and Otaki town.
    The little house has a single bedroom, a shower, toilet and sink and a tiny area in between the bedroom and the bathroom which has a table, chair and a microwave.
    Our few neighbours are usually very quiet and rather far away. In summer sometimes you will hear machinery from the farmers working their land. Not many cars. Especially during evenings and nights you can hear the hum of the ocean :-).
  • An unusual, and peaceful experience.

    Madeleine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

We had a very comfortable bed, big enough for my 6+ft husband to fit on comfortably. The hot tub was an absolute bonus and just what we needed after a long day. We will stay here again any day.

    The cottage is just a spit away from the sea, less than a 2 minute walk and a gentle 10 minute stroll to the Otaki River Mouth for those who enjoy fishing and whitebaiting. A hot tub sits outside on the deck privately nestled in under the verandah so you can take time to soak in the warm bubbling water and listen to the sound of the sea while looking out at the starry night. Great cycle and walking tracks abound for those that like the outdoors or simply relax on the deck and enjoy the less strenuous things in life, afterward enjoy a stroll along the beach for our spectacular West Coast sunsets. Lots of interesting activities to keep you occupied with golfing at the Otaki Links course, racing at the Otaki Maori Racing Club, the now famous Outlet Shopping on the Main Highway or the charming township with its infinite number of eating spots and eclectic collection of shops.
    Delightful seaside neighbourhood surrounded by other holiday homes and cottages. A unique old New Zealand feel to this holiday spot. Two minute walk to beach, 10 min walk to river estuary.
  • Daydrift is a gorgeous seaside cottage. Warm and welcoming, we love to hire this property for guests and people coming to Ōtaki for business!

    Madeleine2019-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant and very cute little Bach in a very pleasant and quiet corner of Otaki Beach. We were able to relax, go for walks and even have a lovely spa. Highly recommended accommodation and Josephine was super onto it and and very fine host!

    David2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really lovely time at Josephine’s bach. Easy walking distance to gorgeous Otaki beach, and great advice for good coffee in the morning. Secluded space and a jacuzzi were just the ticket.

    Jeremy2019-04-24T00:00:00Z

    Jason2019-04-14T00:00:00Z

    Becks2019-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay at a quintessential kiwi bach. Really close to the beach and a great spa

    Rachel2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • A great cottage within earshot, and only a short stroll from the beach. Private and spotlessly clean with a very comfy bed and nice linen. General vibe is ‘Grandma’s Bach’, with original but good quality furniture, curtains and rugs. Even a functioning record player and some vinyl to amuse on a rainy afternoon. Good over-bath shower, modern top-loader washer and even a dishwasher. Kitchen well stocked. Even had some nice sharp knives! Didn’t use the small spa, but looked good, and had a massive BBQ in the garden. Old tube TV and no wifi, but managed to get some Vodafone 3G. Very pleasant spot to while away a few lazy days.

    Sara2019-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful host with a tidy, well equipped bach minutes from the beach. Would recommend & stay again. Thank you!

    Otaki Beach, Wellington, New Zealand

    Sunny, spacious and warm with vibrant colour inside and out, Sunset Beach House has a mix of vintage and modern furnishings, and everything you could wish for, for a holiday or getaway at Otaki's beautiful beach. Fully equipped with four spacious bedrooms on a quarter acre section, there's plenty of room to spread out and relax. A house for all seasons, enjoy leisurely beach walks, sun, surf and sand in the Summer, or cosy up by the fire in Winter and take in the snow on the beautiful Tararuas.
    Sunset Beach House has four spacious bedrooms, multiple living options, secure double garaging, all on a fully fenced quarter acre section. With gorgeous views of the sea to the West, and Tararua Ranges to the East, Sunset Beach house has all the trappings for memorable Summer weekends and holidays, but is equally cosy with double glazing, heat pump, feature gas fireplace and underfloor heated tiles in the bathrooms for a wonderful Winter retreat. There's plenty to do and see in Otaki and surrounds - enjoy surfing, swimming, beach strolls, and river walks, great shopping and excellent cafes in the area and a whole lot more!
    Sunset Beach House is located in the hub of Otaki's beautiful beach which is patrolled in Summer by the surf lifesaving club. There's a great coffee shop, restaurant and dairy nearby, the Waitohu River to the North and Otaki River to the South, with plenty of recreational options, including fishing, surfing, swimming, beach and river walks. The wider area is steeped in Maori history, take in the historic Rangiatea Church or drive out to the Otaki Gorge for a picnic. It is truly magical.
  • A vibrant but peaceful and calming place, the amenities are outstanding, but the main features are the views, it was hard to decide which was better - the west facing view to the ever changing Tasman Sea, or the east facing view to the majestic Tararuas, we loved everything about this property. We will be back. Gavin and Cindy where lovely and helpful hosts , that were quick to respond to any queries - we would love to stay here again.

    Pete-AnnMarie2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a big, stylish, and comfortable house with lots of space to spread out and everything provided.

    Kirsten2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gavin & Cindys home is such a modern, stylish place to relax right across from the beach. We had our wedding preparations there and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Check in was a breeze with Cindy and the views to the beach were stunning. Would definitely recommend to visitors in the future!

    Stephanie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Ronald2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A home away from home, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds, clean crisp fresh linens, great spaces to share with a group or family. The hosts are super friendly and easy to communicate with.

    Rachael2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautifully set up for families with adult/ teenage children. The two lounges and sunroom provided functional space across a larger group and encouraged quality connection/ conversation, and the ability to watch different movies. The kitchen was well designed, with plenty of room for prep, eating and food storage and I personally really enjoyed the basketball hoop. The decks either sideof the property and big yard provided a great space across the wider family. It was topped off with a truly, beautifully designed interior, quality linen and wonderful hospitality. Will book again in near future.

    Otaki Beach, New Zealand

    Forget your worries and enjoy time at the beach chilling out and living in the moment. You’ll enjoy the peace and solitude that this part of Otaki has to offer. Located in Otaki South Beach among other weekenders and holiday homes, the Bach is a two minute walk to the beach. It oozes picture-book charm and offers a true Kiwi bach experience, harking back to the 50s in a modern way.
    Choose to do as little or as much as you feel like. Otaki South Beach is a fisher’s paradise (whitebait and snapper abound), with nature and river walks, horse-riding and river trekking, birdlife, lookout point, kayaking, golf, horse racing and much more within easy reach. If you feel like a spot of shopping, nearby SH1 offers a large range of outlet shops at good prices. You have access to two adult bikes and a scooter if you feel inclined to ride along the river bank to the estuary or along the paved beach front.
  • Awesome little place, close to the beach and has a fabulous big front and back lawn that our 2 little ones loved running around on. The house has everything you need and is very cozy and homely. The communication was great and its value for money!

    Courtney2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Jayne2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely spot, very close to beach and wetlands. Explored them both in the pouring rain!

    Emma2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • This gorgeous little house provided the perfect getaway for our family. Only a 2 minute walk from the beach and in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, I think we almost had the beach to ourselves. It was sparkling clean and there were thoughtful touches like fresh lemons and a coffee pod machine. Excellent and quick communication from the host Viv. We would definitely stay again in future.

    Ngaire2019-04-27T00:00:00Z

Outdoor table and chairs. Easy walking distance to Otaki river, beach and village. Close to bus stop. Bikes available. Additional extras: Cooked breakfasts & dinners by arrangement. Extra cost.

The bed was laid out beautifully, and was very comfortable and warm, with a small bouquet of fresh roses and lavender next to the bed. I enjoyed the walk from the house along the river too. Thanks Berylla! I recommend

  • This place is the most amazing holiday home I’ve ever been to! It was even better because it was perfect for the kids! There was a trampoline, sandpit area, HUGE backyard & a deck to die for! The house alone was just amazing as well and the beach is literally a 5min walk. I can’t recommend it highly enough. We had initially booked the place for a week but we weren’t ready to leave so we decided to book an extra day. Our next holiday back to NZ we’re coming back here to stay, it was just a spiritual & peaceful experience. Would absolutely highly recommend!

    Annie2020-02-15T00:00:00Z

    Waikawa Beach, New Zealand

    This is glorious beach tiny house "glamping" on 1 Acre of land on the sand dunes, under the pine trees 4 mins walk to a beautiful, safe beach an hour from Wellington. Can sleep 4 inside (but lots of space for camping also) and is fully kitted out (fridge, cooker, pots/pans/cutlery etc, heater, microwave etc) plus basic composting toilet and hot water shower.
    The beds can be either singles or pushed together to make doubles. Please note that this is a "back to basics" glamping experience. Please bring your own bedding (sleeping bags or duvets and pillow cases) and towels. The toilet is a basic outdoor composting system. There will be toilet paper/tea/coffee supplied but everything else you will need to bring.. The nearest shops are on SH1 or Otaki/Levin so best to stock up on the way. There is no wifi and patchy cell phone coverage (this is a place to leave your screens behind). There are 2 other cabins on the property with shared use of: - Canoes (inc life jackets) - Surfboards - Out door hot water shower and washing up area - Pizza oven - BBQ - Volleyball/badminton pitch - Famous swing (not for the faint hearted) - Trampoline Please note that if you want to learn to Kitesurf or kite landboard, I can give lessons and use of gear (at extra cost) if I'm there when you are staying and the conditions are good. Let me know if interested and I can give you cost. Note also that if you have a bigger group then some could sleep in the cabin and some could camp ($10 per extra person). There is a 2/3 person tent up there or you could bring your own.
  • A lovely get away.

    Mica2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic set up and tiny house experience, swing was great for all ages 11 to 50, we were able to drive the kayaks to nearby river mouth - awesome little adventure nesting birds and all, excellent balance between bach and glamping. Don’t forget a lighter - in case host isn’t around - for the pizza oven and fire BBQ.

    Leila2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to get away from everything. A very rustic outdoor experience with the absolute luxury of a roof, hot water shower and surprisingly pleasant compostable toilet. If you love the bush and being close to the sea then this is the place for you :)

    Come on up and experience a slice of paradise. Beautiful little place to relax in peace and lay in the sun. While sipping on a lovely cold beverage you can look out over the farm and watch our amazing horses frolicking in the paddocks 😁 A sun trap all day long , perfect for the get away couple 😁
    Lovely farm surroundings but yet so close to Waikanae, Otaki and Paraparaumu ... Also just around the corner from the famous wedding venue; Sudbury. 5 mins from Te Horo beach and fabulous Bus cafe. Bring your bikes/horses and explore this awesome little community! 😍
    Fantastic place to live as we are simply so close but yet so far away from everything 😍
  • Beautiful views and well set up accomodation unit, nice privacy and amenities

  • Amazing private stay for anyone who wants to get away and enjoy nature.

    Rebekah2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful peaceful getaway. Horses were a bonus. The place was clean, everything you need in a compact room but at the sametime spacious enough to feel so relaxed loved the outside deck...it was the highlight of my stay including waking up to these amazing horses :) I could watch them for hours 😜.

    Tulua2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's place is very beautiful and clean. Although it is very small, this house somehow has everything you need. The view is also pretty amazing and the self check-in very easy. Highly recommend!

    Jo2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great spot, really enjoyed being close to the beach, the Bus Stop cafe and Otaki. Watching the horses in the evening out on the deck was so lovely! Thanks for a very enjoyable stay!

    Te Horo, Wellington, New Zealand

    Kameni Cottage is set in an organic certified property - it is a lovely wee self contained cottage - plenty of parking, there is a king size bed which can be made into 2 king singles and also a sofa bed, the cottage is double glazed but we have a heater plus a fire for the winter nights - we have a salt water spa and for summer a salt water swimming pool. There are cooking facilities. I provide the basis for breakfast. We have 2 dogs, chickens and cows - Come and enjoy our beautiful cottage!!
    Our property is organic certified and we grow avocados and plums. I make organic balms including soothing balm for dry and irritated skin, lip balms and heels balms and after sun balm - all available for purchase. The pool is heated in the summer from solar panels - so relaxing !! The spa is fabulous on a clear night for watching the stars!! We two dogs - a Jack Russell and an Italian Maremma. There are basis for your breakfast or I can provide a full breakfast with hot crossiants, home made jam, honey from our hives, eggs from our chickens, bacon, yoghurt, cereal, juice by arrangement for an extra charge. The cottage is quite small and more like a tiny home - lovely for a couple - a bit more crowded for 3!
    We are regarded as a rural address but only 5 minutes drive to Waikanae or Otaki - our neighbours are dairy farmers.
  • An idyllic setting with modern facilities and tasteful decor. Jane the host was incredibly helpful and provided lots snacks and beverages that went down a treat. The organic plums off the their tree were delicious!

    Sandra2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Would here stay again

    Jesse2019-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had an Amazing and Unique experience at the Kameni cottage. Our stay was so relaxing and revitalizing. This place is truly a little paradise on earth and we just cannot wait to go back again!

    Sarah2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful views, and jane was very attentive.

    Rogelio2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Hostess with the mostest! Thank you Jane and your husband for a lovely stay. We enjoyed everything from the pool/spa to the dogs and other animals. The cottage is so well set up and just a lovely place to stay. We enjoyed our fresh farm eggs and milk. If we’re ever in town again we will definitely be back!

    Justine2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location with excellent host. Some small touches that made our stay perfect. Would have loved to have another night to enjoy the setting.

    Jason2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

    Te Horo, Wellington, New Zealand

    Sleeps up to 3 guests comfortably with a queen bed + two king singles. Has all day sun and views of Kapiti Island, Tararuas and the beach, which is 300mts away. Your dog(s) are welcome as we have a large wrap-around fence. If you want to relax with some books and some wine, then this is the place to visit. Te Horo Beach itself is full of character and a friendly community of permanent and part-time residents who are keen to have a chat or respect your privacy as well.
    This bach is rustic and no frills in every sense of the word, old school furniture, peeling paint, a shabby, unassuming bach like bachs by the beach should be - the complete opposite of a Hilton experience :) Tea/coffee provided - just bring milk. Kitchen is fully equipped. - There is no TV but we have WIFI. You have the whole bach for use. Our friendly property manager Mike lives closeby and is on hand to answer any questions you have. Our beach and community is what makes us special and unique. Some things to do around Te Horo Beach ... - Bus Stop Cafe (a unique rural cafe! open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 55 Sims Road.) - Te Horo Cafe, and shops at Hyde Park (corner of State Highway) - Take a walk south along the beach, and see the Pink Stump! - Go for a horse ride, there’s some local services - Across the State Highway, along School Road, is Ruth Pretty’s Cafe - Nearest supermarket and shops are in Ōtaki 9 mins drive north. Many shops on the main highway. The old Ōtaki township (3 mins towards the beach) is worth visiting for the Māori history: a number of marae (meeting house); the famous Rangiātea Church (oldest Anglican/Māori in NZ); Wānanga; Pukekaraka: St Mary’s Catholic Church (oldest in NZ) - Waikanae is 11 min drive, south. Train to Wellington departs every 30 mins.
    Te Horo has some of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever come across as per the pics. These are worth the visit alone. Te Horo is also known for: - the beach - peacefulness - bus stop cafe (look this cafe up, it is amazing) - swimming / boating - bicycle trails - equestrian schools - Kapiti Island (good for day trips) - unspoilt town - there is no cars passing between the beach and the township - views of the Tararua ranges - scenic walks
  • What a lovely relaxing place to stay - it was like family therapy for us to get away from the city and just be able to walk the dog on the beach, drink wine in the sun on the deck, and play board games! We would love to come back!

    Hannah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, large decking, with all you need for a comfy refreshing get away that is close to Wellington.

    David2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing spot for a small family to stay, we loved all the extra touches with board games for the kids and a fully fenced property it made it a stress-free stay. We loved the bbq on the deck and had everything we needed. What a wee delight this place is and we would definitely return :)

    Daniel2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully cosy little holiday house for our small family (2 adults, toddler and baby) to spend Christmas. Huge fenced section for our toddler and dog to explore safely. Loved the outlook over the settlement and Kapiti Island. Had everything we needed and we were sad we didn’t book it for longer!

    Rissa2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful bach close to the beach, super-easy check-in, exactly what we needed and marvellous communication with the hosts. Absolutely recommended!

    Kati2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • This no frills bach is exactly as advertised and a real piece of kiwiana - clean, cosy, 2 minutes stroll to beach, all day sun and in a quiet street. Great deck and comfortable beds! It won't be our last stay at Gina's place!

    Patrick2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Gina and Mike were very responsive on our queries. The place is nice and near the beach. Place is really good if you need to have a break and just spend time to relax. Thanks again, Gina and Mike!

    Jacquelyn Gracel2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • We were so happy to find this place on short notice, so glad they allowed dogs inside. Perfect kiwi bach in a brilliant location with n amazing local cafe. Highly recommend!

    Te Horo Beach, New Zealand

    When was the last time you unplugged from the madness and dove into nature? No, really? Nestled into lush green forest an hour north of Wellington, Waitohu Lodge was built on the three Rs: relax, rejuvenate and revive. There’s 2ha of Jurassic-like forest where the only sound is native birds and the breeze rustling the ancient trees, a river where you can picnic and a newly renovated stylish one-bedroom apartment (not surprising when one of your hosts writes for House & Garden magazine).
    Washing machine available on request Coffee, tea and treats in room Private bush walk on property with stream access Must be dog friendly as there is a small dog on site
    10 min drive to Otaki beach, while there pop in and have a coffee with Rusty at Lean To Coffee. Otaki township is a five minute drive away where you can stock up on provisions for your luxury bolt hole.
  • Very tranquil spot, we were only there for a quick one night, but would be a fantastic get away place for a weekend

    Tanja2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice appartment, part of the house but still separate. You are on the countryside, so wonderfully quiet. Nice little walk to a stream through an “original” stretch of wood.

    Gert2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our time here, we just regret we didn’t book for longer to enjoy relaxing in the lovely gardens! Thank you for a great stay

    Amanda2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and the property was so relaxing. Martin was a great host. Thanks so much

    Gavin2019-12-22T00:00:00Z

    Katie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

    Julia2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • I loved it a beautiful space so peaceful and relaxing

    Hannah2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very peaceful and beautiful place to stay. Nice short walk through native bush to a stream, but also beautiful garden with a massive old cherry blossom tree. The actual guest suite is separated from the main house and is very clean/modern/stylish with everything that you need. Highly recommend.

  • A wonderful place and Dale is a fantastic host who doubles as a great babysitter. It’s such a tranquil little spot and the outdoor bath is lovely.

    Erin2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Dale went above and beyond for my family, and has absolutely earned the superhost title. She responded quickly to questions. The house is amazing and quirky, and the cabin is very well maintained, clean and quiet. Continental breakfast was fresh and substantial. Kitchenette is small but functional and there are pots and cooking utensils and a hot plate. We didn't try the bath but will next time. Didn't get to hang out with Dale unfortunately as I think she would be great fun!

    Althea2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Dale is a great, lovely and welcoming host and makes you feel home from the very first second. The accommodation was very well equipped with everything you can ask for. There was even some food provided what I really didn’t expect. Clean and tidy rooms. You feel like you have your own house with a big garden. The supermarket is in walking distance. I can nothing but highly recommend to stay at that place. It’s by far the best accommodation I had in this region in the past few years! 5 stars..there’s no more to add...

    Philipp2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Dale's sleep out is great. Very good for a 2/3 night stay. Close to the shops and beach. Perfect for what we were needing. Dale is also very good at communicating as well, no issues with check in or checkout. Will highly recommend her airbnb.

    Dikesh2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeously appointed, stylish little studio with everything you need when you're away, including a super comfy bed. Really appreciated the snacks and breakfast provisions. Well located near the village with supermarket, and the outlet shops etc. Didn't get to try the lovely bath sadly as it was raining the night I stayed. Next time!

    Jo2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous space with everything you need to relax and chill after a day at the Otaki Races. The outdoor bath was a wonderful treat under the stars and lights that lit up the garden. Don’t bother to bring breaky all is provided so you can make the most of the 11am checkout. Dale is lovely, welcoming and allows you to enjoy your private space. Treat yourself to this little, pretty Otaki haven.

    Maria-Lee2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Just go there! Dale is very kind and the place is beautiful. Had a good rest and loved the view of the garden. Well equipped home.

    Hendrik2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing piece of paradise! Beautifully presented with a lot of special touches! Dale was amazing and a great host! Outdoor bath was just simply the best! Can’t wait to come back again!

    Perched on the side of a sand dune one row back from Te Horo Beach on the Kapiti Coast, this wonderfully light, warm and architect-designed bach is a modern & stylish seaside retreat only 50 minutes' drive from New Zealand's capital city Wellington.
    The bach was designed by architects Sam Kebbell and John Daish in 2001 – it's a sturdy little block house surrounded by a lawn which slopes down towards the beach. The well-equipped kitchen, dining and living space are combined downstairs with a mezzanine bedroom above. The bathroom is downstairs. A cleverly designed louvre over one window and a light curtain over the opposite window upstairs, allow for generous views of the sea and Kapiti Island. Extra guests are easily accommodated on a fold down sofa in the living room downstairs. One of the luxuries of staying in the bach is the continental breakfast provided for your stay. It includes homemade toasted muesli, fresh and poached organic fruit, yoghurt, tea, freshly ground coffee, homemade jams and a selection of breads, croissants and bagels. High quality bed linen and bathroom towels (but not beach towels) are also provided. To keep you warm in the winter, the woodburner (fire box) is set up ready for your arrival with plenty of firewood available as needed.
    Te Horo Beach is a low-key, eclectic seaside community with a mixture of permanent and part-time residents. You will often have the sandy beach to yourself for as far as you can see. If you enjoy evening walks, you can watch the sun set behind Kapiti Island. Driftwood is washed down from the nearby Tararua mountains so there are plenty of places to rest and admire the view along the way.
  • Lovely place right by the sea. A very relaxing stay and we enjoyed all the homemade and organic breakfast foods - what a treat!

    Caroline2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed our stay very much. We got a lot of usefull information about the area when checking in. Breakfast was great! Awesome view from upstairs!

  • Great location, quiet (except for the drummer next door!) and beautiful space. Everything you needed.

    Kirsten2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Adrienne’s batch is beautiful and cozy. A perfectly sized space for two people. A short walk to the beach and situated on a pleasant quiet road, the batch is fantastic for a weekend get away or reset. Beautiful touches with homemade muesli and other breakfast foods

    Sesi2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous place to stay, location couldn’t be better! Bach is unique, Adrienne is very easy to deal with, yum organic locally grown breakfast. Wow. We will be back!

    De Grauwe Duun II (The Grey Dune) is a modern throwback to the classic kiwi bach. With its black corrugated cladding and warm plywood interior, it sits in the dunes of Waikawa beach and enjoys all day sun. When you are ready to enjoy the safe swimming at Waikawa Beach you can take a short walk down the track which winds through the 2 acre property - all the way to the beach. The bach is designed to be easy care and you can enjoy separated bedrooms with one having a mezzanine/loft.
    Waikawa beach is 10 min north of Otaki and 15 min south of Levin, where you can find the nearest supermarkets and good coffee! Reay MacKay Grove is at the south end of Waikawa beach and has very little traffic. You can get to the beach directly from the property or at 2 access paths close by. Waikawa is also close to Otaki Forks and the Tararua Ranges.
    Waikawa has a fantastic safe swimming beach. For the very young, the estuary provides a safe fresh water playground. You can also bring a kayak for paddling in the estuary or nearby river. You can walk for miles along the beach or take a stroll along local roads to enjoy the rural views including the Tararuas.
  • Great location. Very clean and very pleasant place to stay

    Nikki2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wow wow, what a lovely beach house on an amazing spot. You hear the sound of the sea at the almost abonded beach, this is what you hope for when you seek a nice and quiet bnn nearby the sea. I liked the decoration inside the bnb. We could move in here :)

    E.F.M.2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The place is immaculate and such a lovely place to stay it has everything you need, the location is awesome being so close to the beach with a short walk through the sand dunes was a highlight for the kids!

    Chrystal2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I had a wonderful mini break at Waikawa beach and absolutely loved Maarten's Bach! We can't recommend it highly enough, and the photos don't do it justice! It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Perfect for kids and only a short stroll through the dunes to the beach. Will definitely be back!

    Jenny2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn't have asked for a better location for a beach getaway. The bach is immaculate and we loved our stay. The location is perfect for a secluded and quiet holiday, but close enough to amenities that you aren't completely isolated. The beach was perfect for our son's first ocean experience, nice flat beach and beautiful views. Highly recommend staying here.

    Alice2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay. We loved the place and would love to visit again.

    Rosie2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Lovely spot pretty much on the beach.

    Dave2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place, in a great location. Everything you need, very much enjoyed the all day sun, beach access, great shower, and well styled interior. Would highly recommend as long as you're alright with a hard mattress. There is both a futon and spring mattress, but didn't have much luck with either. However, this may be down to my partner and I's preferences. If it wasn't for that, I would be quick to say that we'll be back.

    Seasalt is a contemporary private one bed studio apartment with kitchenette, lounge area and spacious bathroom, offering a quiet retreat in a rural location - but close to the beach and with some of the best views in the region. Hosts Julie and Paul run their small farm and the exclusive Seasalt Apartment as a place where guests can come to escape and take time out, or enjoy a break close to a number of Kapiti Coast wedding venues as well as the many local activities on offer.
    Relax on your own private deck and enjoy a full continental breakfast and home baking whilst taking in some of the best views on the Kapiti Coast – Seasalt is located at Five Gates Farm where you’ll be free to wander through the paddocks, meeting the farms herd of Alpacas and be inspired by the views of Kapiti Island and the Tararua Mountain Range.
    Te Horo Beach is only a few minutes from the main highway approximately 50 minutes north of Wellington. It is a quiet rural community but just a short drive to many local attractions including Kapiti Island nature reserve, local cafes and wedding venues.
  • The best place we've visited on the north island of New Zealand. Super friendly hosts, who showed us around the property and had us feeding the alpacas by hand. Great view from the outside seating area with an awesome sunset outlook. We would definitely return next time in NZ. Highly recommended for anyone travelling through and wanting an ultimate eco-friendly getaway. Such a good stay it makes you consider moving into the countryside.

    Douglas2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Julie and Paul are so welcoming, we had such a lovely break. It was so much fun to meet the alpacas! The apartment is beautiful with a stunning view and we will definitely be back!

  • Absolutely amazing! Not only is Julie and Paul’s place adorable, clean and stylish...their alpacas are something we will never forget! One of the cutest air b and b’s I have stayed at, has everything you would need and Julie went above and beyond with little touches like alpaca cookies and fresh strawberries. All around wonderful people and hosts and my husband and I were so sad we only could stay one night. I highly recommend staying here!

  • Amazing!! Julie and Paul were welcoming from the very beginning. The entire stay they went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and happy. They introduced us to their playful Beagle’s, Henry and Oscar, and were just beautiful people to be around. This was hands downs one of the best Airbnb stays we have ever had! Thank you so much for the entire experience! Also, we’d highly recommend organising the Alpaca + farm tour through Airbnb Experiences. Julie and Paul will take you through their 10 acre farm, introduce you to the lively alpacas, cows, chickens and guide you through their vision of a self sustainable property. So fun! Couldn’t rate these guys and their farm any higher!! Thank you! Jack and Caitlin

  • We couldn’t recommend sea salt apartment enough! Such a beautiful break away. We loved the deck with views to kapiti island as well as the home baking 😋 not to mention the alpacas! So much fun getting to feed them and get to know more about their personalities. Thanks again Julie and Paul, we will be back for sure!

  • Amazing stay! Seasalt appartment included all the trimmings, plus some. Great location and even better hosts. Julie, Paul and the alpacas were so lovely and welcoming. Would love to stay again

  • Where to start, the apartment itself is really bright, high ceilings, clean with a very impressive bathroom. It is very comfortable with a great bed. There is also a lot of complimentary food so don't worry about breakfast or even snacks. The hosts are a pleasure to deal with. We took the opportunity to help feed the Alpacas and Paul and Julie taught us so much about them. They also showed us around their property and told us about their plans which really impressed us city folk and opened our own eyes to whether we might consider a rural move. Don't hesitate to book if you are lucky enough to find this place free. Also only a few minute drive from Te Horo Beach as a bonus!

    Our sunny, tidy, well-designed Bach is a perfect base for relaxing, or a springboard for exploring the beautiful Kapiti Coast. The house features a large open-plan living area, with big windows and French doors opening on to deck and a fenced, private back garden. Two main bedrooms adjoin the living area, with a third bedroom in the sleep-out. It's a few minutes walk to a beautiful sandy beach with lifeguards in summer. Please note this is a simple bach, so there is no TV!
    This is a quiet, friendly neighbourhood- great for biking and walking.
  • Very good Bach.

  • Really enjoyed my stay in Otaki. Lovely cosy space to relax, close to the beach. Kitchen has all you need, and the table tennis table was a great addition. Would definitely go back.

  • This house is like a little Oasis. Beautiful, clean and tidy. A really lovely home to bring guests to Ōtaki. Thank you Ruth!

  • We had a really good escape from the city to stay at Ruth and Redmer place. We meet up with our friend's family there with two kids and clearly the house is very kid-friendly and there are toys for them to play with. The location is great, just 2 minutes to the sea. We're welcome with a letter from the host to let us know there are lettuce and herbs in the garden that we could use for the salad. We did that and having a great BBQ as well. Overall, it is a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

  • Staying at Katie’s was soooo easy. Check in - easy. Storage for our things- loads. Great basic facilities, but also great extras like coffee machine, sodastream, blender etc. Loved the Beach theme through the house, really gave us the holiday vibe, even though we only drove an hour from Wellington!
