About this Holiday House

Brilliant beachfront location - the best on the Kapiti Coast! Trendy, cosy and comfortable with everything you need to relax The perfect warm spot for a holiday with plenty of local activities year round This tastefully revitalised 1920's villa is located right opposite Otaki's beautiful beach. It has trendy decor throughout with modern furnishings, and all the comforts of home. The house comfortably sleeps five in its two bedrooms (queen and single) and sunroom (double sofa bed). The bathroom is up to date with easy outside access, too - and includes a washing machine, too! There's a TV with SKY, some great DVDs, and lots of books and magazines for relaxing inside on cooler or rainy days, or when you just need a break from sunny Otaki beach! We have a great selection of board games and puzzles, too. Cook indoors utilising the fully fitted kitchen - or choose alfresco dining in the outdoor area with gas BBQ and courtyard seating. We have a cute table for 2, larger one for four and picnic table for the kiddies. The courtyard is the perfect private, sheltered spot for your morning coffee or tea, relaxing with a book, playing a board game or just chatting with the ones you love. The lovely water feature is soothing to watch and sparkles at night. You will also spot our maiden, or "kohine" in te reo Maori - a fantastic mermaid for whom the house is named. Just cross the road and you're at the beach! Otaki beach is the best beach along the Kapiti coast, with uninterrupted, flat coastline and safe swimming, with lifeguards all summer. We have chairs, beach towels, and toys, including a sand digger and John Deere tractor for the younger kids. And there are pipis aplenty along the shoreline near Kohine where you will see the locals gathering them in the late afternoon. As you look out at Kapiti island, all your worries and cares will disappear! Sunrise and sunset are breathtaking - and right out your front door. An hour from Wellington or Palmerston North and you're in a different world filled with natural beauty - the beach, rivers, estuary, Otaki Gorge and Tararua ranges. Horse riding, tramping, picnicking, trout fishing, kayaking, cycling and golfing, as well as swimming pool and gym, are all within easy distance from Kohine. Museums, including the Southward Car Museum and the local historical museum, a library, and events like the Maoriland Film Festival, add a cultural dimension to your stay. We have up to date information and maps onsite for you. Otaki has over 35 outlet stores, a Sunday market, two supermarkets, a butcher, Main St bakery and Penray gardens where you can pick your own fruit and vege. There are plenty of take away options, too - fish and chips, Chinese, Indian, and sushi! Within walking or biking distance of Kohine, there's a dairy with ice cream for the kids before heading to a fantastic local playground. The more serious foodies might want to visit Ruth Pretty's Cooking School and shop, just 10 minutes away. Kohine is located 75km from Wellington airport, 20km from Paraparumu airport and only 15km to the Waikanae station for train services in to Wellington. There's a bus service for Otaki and from Otaki Beach to Coastlands shopping centre at Paraparaumu. We would love to have you visit Kohine - and we know you will have a fabulous holiday any time of year!

Great place have stayed here previously
Fabulous affordable haven just over an hour from Wellington. Everything you need and more! Just had a delightful two day recharge and loved it - I'll be back. Thank you so much. Tania
Response from Owner
Thank you Tania!! Thanks for choosing Kohine, and thank you for being a brilliant guest who we'd welcome back in a flash :-)
Could not have been more perfect, so close to the sea and with the peace of a little garden to enjoy. We enjoyed the bach so much that we cancelled plans to dine out and cooked all meals to eat in the garden instead.
Response from Owner
So glad you had a wonderful time! We look forward to seeing you again :-)
