Get away from it all at Wharerata (Tree House), an idyllic Kapiti Coast retreat at beautiful Otaki Beach.

This charming coastal home oozes character, style and personality from the moment you step inside. Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams create a warmth and texture throughout the living spaces here, and are complemented by cosy furnishings to make Wharerata feel like a true home away from home.

Wharerata is appointed with three well-sized bedrooms. The master is fitted with a queen bed, and boasts exclusive access to the outdoor deck and living area, while the remaining two bedrooms offer versatile bedding configurations for almost any group, whether you're a family on holiday or a few friends chasing the summer sun.

Dining and entertaining are made easy here. The modern kitchen is well-equipped and spacious, making cooking a delight even for the dubious chef.

Meanwhile, the generous outdoor deck and sprawling lawn area at Wharerata make it easy to embrace summer living at its finest. Out here, a family-sized BBQ and purpose-built, sizeable lounge suite offers the perfect space for the whole family to come together and enjoy an Otaki sunset on a warm evening.

When it’s time to explore the local area, Otaki has much to offer. The beautiful golden sands of Otaki Beach can be reached in just five minutes on foot from Wharerata. A ten minute walk will also take you to Beachbrook Stables, where you can book in a trek to horse ride along the beach for an experience of a lifetime. If you’re just up for a quiet bite to eat, central Otaki town has plenty to offer, such as Main Street Bakery Company, Otaki Seafoods or the local supermarket.

Location, space and style doesn't get better than this. Make your next Kapiti Coast holiday one to remember at Whererata!

Wonderful Bach with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Close to the beach and great shops close by. Lots of fun things to do with the kids at the bach as well as the local area. The house is lovely and clean. Perfect cosy bach to unwind and relax in.

Wonderful house in a quiet part of Otaki Beach. I wanted to stay longer and will definitely like to go back!

Excellent property - photos don't do it justice. Great grounds for kids and animals. Literally 2 minutes from the beach.

We had a good couple of days in this easy house with a great location. We explored the reserves around the area and walked on beach. To be recommended. Sue and Alan

Lovely house and location

Stayed April 2021

The place is situated in a lovely location, close to the beach - a nice sunny sheltered spot central to everything. We were disappointed with the cleanliness of the house and lack of some basic supplies.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review, Christine! We're glad you enjoyed Wharerata's lovely location! We're sorry to hear the cleaning wasn't up to the expected standard and have addressed this with the local team, to ensure the cleanliness is maintained at the high level our guests expect from us.
