Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

MEMBER SINCE November 2014
situated at a beachside community on the Kapiti coast, approximately 45 minutes’ drive from Wellington. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac ; Paraparaumu Beach village is just a few minutes’ drive away and has lots of café’s, restaurant’s as well as many art & gift shops. The area takes its name from Kapiti Island which is just 4 kilometers off the mainland and a boat leaves daily from the beach and returns about 4.00pm. It is famous for its native birds and as there are no predators on the island they are very tame and inquisitive. Paraparaumu township is just 4 k’s away and is well serviced with supermarkets, cinema’s, shopping mall and again …. Even more cafés. I have included some photos of our local area and even one of a nearby favourite beachside café & bar where I often spend an evening with a glass of wine just watching the sun go down.
There is a local airport with connections to Auckland and Christchurch and Wellington international airport is less than an hour’s drive and has connections to all regional airports in New Zealand as well as other main cities and international destinations. Trains leave Paraparaumu station every 30 minutes for the city. There is also a good bus service which links with the railway station and the surrounding towns. Wellington is an exciting & diverse place to visit with any number of things to do and see. Te Papa museum (Museum of New Zealand) is here along with many art galleries, cinemas, theatres, café’s and many restaurants. Its position is quite stunning overlooking a large natural harbour with the mountain ranges in the background.
The house was built 16 years ago and is a comfortable open plan design on one level with lots of light and all day sun in the main living areas, sliding doors lead on to the patio for outside dining. The house was built as a four bedroom home though I use one bedroom as an office / study. The master bedroom has an en suite and there is a walk in wardrobe. There is also a separate laundry and a heated, walk in linen storage cupboard. In a residential area with other houses the house and garden are both very private and secluded and is north and west facing which means it gets all day sun. The dining area of the patio gets the early sun for breakfast and is still in the sun for late drinks or supper.
The house is situated about a 15 minute walk from the beach and also to the river estuary with lots of walks and good fishing in the river.
Although my home is close to the beach, it's backcloth is the Tararua mountain range with lots of day walks and longer overnight tramps and there are an extensive number of huts which provide accommodation. There are numerous bush walks within walking distance of home and within a 30 minute drive is an extensive variety of quiet beaches and bush.
The beautiful Marlborough Sounds is just across the Cook Strait and is easily accessed on one of the many ferry’s that make the daily crossing. My location in the lower North Island means that it is easy to travel north or south and is an ideal base to see New Zealand.
