Kohekohe Sleepout is a freestanding bedroom/ensuite cabin adjacent to the main house, in our sunny garden, in the heart of beautiful Waikanae on the Kapiti Coast. It is 1.2 km from the shops and 3.4 km from Waikanae Beach. The sleepout is a very small space but with everything you need. It's ideal for an overnight stay or longer if you like to be out and about.
“Our stay with Rose was short but very sweet. I can't say anything bad about Rose's sleep out. We went up for a brief trip from Christchurch for a wedding nearby and could have easily slept in and stayed an extra day. We woke up to the lovely sound of Tuis and Kererū outside the sleep out and when we left, there were a few hanging around in the trees outside, which we spent a while just watching. The surroundings are beautiful and quiet. There were nice little touches which I found very helpful when getting ready for a wedding, like an extension cord for my curler! It's a nice little room for two. The breakfast was very nice too :). Would highly recommend Rose's lovely wee sleep out.”

“Beautiful location, lovely welcoming apartment that was cozy and warm (we were Winter guests), comfortable and stylishly furnished with lots of generous touches eg great quality magazines and books related to the area. Very well stocked tea/coffee and breakfast materials and we really enjoyed the thriving garden with chooks. Private and quiet with a leafy access path to the beach and estuary walkway. Highly recommend”
