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, 1 double bunk bed with a double trundler bed, 1 bunk bed with pull out sofa (pulls out to double bed), and 1 normal bunk bed. It also has a sofa bed in the lounge. All duvets and pillows included, all you need to bring is sheets and towels.

Includes Wifi

Sleeps 14, but it's a squeeze (5 people in one bedroom and 2 in the sofa bed in the lounge)

For an extra $20 per night you can also get access to a small sleepout which contains a queen size bed.

A very lovely home. Was above our expectations. Plenty of room for the team. Just a shame the beach / river wasn't as lovely.

What an awesome property for a getaway. Well equipped, plenty of room, fantastic shower in the ensuite! Great location for the event we were attending just down the road & a short walk to the estuary and beach. Would also be fantastic for a winter retreat! Will definately be back with more family & friends. Thanks so much

Three families gathered together to celebrate my mum's 86th birthday. We all left with lovely memories of the weekend, and enjoyed the location, walks, beach. The batch is clean and tidy and quite cosy. However, the entrance & garden were quite disappointing with overgrown. The kitchen facilities needed some attention as wel.

This is a family orientated holiday house and is perfect holiday house for any size family. Our children were sad to leave as they had so much fun with the toys. Recommend to all renters, who are looking for a clean, tidy and a very comfortable holiday house. Thank you so much Eva for making our stay at ‘Down by the River’ memorable. We all love to revisit again in the near future :-)
