About this Holiday House

Please come and enjoy our lovely holiday home in Otaihanga, by Waikanae river, with views over the wetlands to Kapiti Island. Choose between fishing in the river or cross it for a short stroll to Waikanae beach. Then enjoy the last rays of sun on the deck before snuggling up in front of the wood burner. Bring your bike and enjoy the great bike track by the domains or simply relax in our private sheltered garden next to the Bird Estuary. As we are on the Paraparaumu side of the river it’s only a 5 minutes drive to Coastlands. Bringing kids? Great, our kids have left toys to play with, lots of games and there is a trampoline and a swing set. The house has 1 queen bed, 2 double bunks and 1 single bed which is shorter than normal (170 long). It also has a sofa bed in the lounge as well as sofa bed in one of the bedrooms. All duvets and pillows included, all you need to bring is sheets and towels. Includes Wifi Sleeps 10, but it's a squeeze with 5 people in one bedroom or someone sleeping in the living room. For an extra $20 per night you can also get access to a small sleepout which contains a double size bed. For your safety the house is protected by a monitored fire and burglar alarm. A Meth alarm is also installed to ensure a healthy environment for you and your family.

Great stay, thanks Eva. House was clean and tidy, had everything we needed. Lovely spot.
A 'lodge-in-the-bush' feel lockwood home. Cosy and sunny. Wonderful location with easy access to Otaihanga walking track and river. Great water pressure in the new bathroom. Some minor repairs and a thorough clean needed, but very livable. The outside sleepout is a good extra if more beds needed. Inside beds are very comfortable. Remember not only linen and towels - you also need to bring tea towels and dishcloths as none provided. My family enjoyed our stay.

House was great for huge family outside great for kids, but swing set needs repairs, house needs a good spring clean was asked that the place be vacuumed on vacating, house looked as though had not been done for awhile. Plenty of crockery but this also needs going thru with chipped and cracked items being removed. If taking a toddler need to be aware of items down low. Also with elderly people caution of hallway mat we rolled up for safety. If all this was sorted b an awesome place. I still would recommend to people but with as mentioned faults.
