  • Pet Friendly Outdoor Only


Perched on the hillside, The Paintbox offers an elevated and welcoming escape two streets back from the beachfront and looking out over the surrounding town and landscape.

The Paintbox is a dream destination year-round. In the summertime, delight in the outdoor areas to comfortably sit out under the sun on the outdoor lounge suite in the mornings or get the BBQ sizzling away for alfresco meals.

Indoors admire the view from the large, floor-to-ceiling, wood-framed windows in the open plan living, dining and kitchen area. A mix of modern and retro furnishings give the place a warm ambience, ideal for downtime together or meals shared with a view.

This three-bedroom holiday home, with WiFi, is well-equipped throughout, including a fully furnished kitchen, comfy beds, laundry facilities and even a private cable car if you don't feel up to taking the stairs when you arrive.

This unique and relaxing getaway is just a few minutes walk from the local cafe, grocery store, bar and fish and chip shop. Or head down to the beach less than 500m away and just six minutes from your front door. For nice night out, The Paintbox is 150m from both the Sunday Cantina and The Raumati Social Club who regularly host live musicians.

While on the Kapiti Coast, you can't go past a visit to their most famous (and delicious) export - Kapiti Ice Cream! Grab a scoop or three from Ripples Cafe, which also serve up coffee and tasty family-friendly lunches you can grab on the go before heading off to explore the region.

Everything you need for a refreshing Raumati South stay awaits. Welcome to The Paintbox!

A charming holiday house ideally located close to the shops. Will definitely be back again..and again..and again

Stayed October 2021

This house is probably only suitable for younger people, children will like the maze of rooms and staircases but the potential for them to fall is great. There are two bedrooms, one bathroom and a separate toilet. There is a foldaway bed and a large day bed that would suit 2 children. We found the place difficult to live in but others might not have a problem with it. Dan Russell.

We appreciate you taking the time to provide some feedback on your recent stay and are sorry to hear the layout didn’t work for your group. We do our best to show the staircases in the photos. We hope you enjoyed the lovely views at this spectacular property.

This is a really interesting house with some great architectural features. It gets great sun in the morning and the sitting room at the top of the house is perfect for a sit in the sun in the afternoon. There are some great outdoor spaces for when the weather's good. It's convenient to the beach and close by some great Raumati cafes. By and large the house is well set up but we were there in July and we found it cold. The bed in the main room could also do with a good topper pad and an electric blanket for the cooler months.

We had a great stay. Such a beautiful house with lovely energy. Really cozy and so wonderful that you can watch the moon rise from the top room and wake to the sun rising too. Very special 🙏. Thanks again 😊👍
