Stayed December 2021

We absolutely loved our stay, the house was extremely clean and had everything we needed. You can't get much of a better location either!

Stayed July 2021

There was a very cold snap when we were scheduled to arrive and we were pleased to find the heaters on in the bedrooms and the fire on in the living area. The house in nice with a wonderful view, the sunsets seem to last hours. This was our first time visiting the area and it was a pleasant surprise, the beach side of town was quant and we arrived right on Matariki were there was a spectacular light festival. Only slight negative is that one night there was someone hooning up and down the beach on their motorbike which was loud but I am a very light sleeper and it didn’t prevent me from falling back to sleep. I only mention this because I saw a review about a lot of traffic on the beach. I saw a van driving slowly up the beach on the first day and the motorbike on the second night but that was it. Didn’t bother me.

Excellent location, older house but lovely and spacious, great for a family getaway. Rather cold at night, but heaters provided. I would happily return, but would opt for a summertime stay next time 😊 Kitchen could do with a bit of an upgrade, but was clean and well equipped. Being on a beachfront and waking up to the sound of waves was just fabulous!

Stayed September 2020

We had a wonderful stay, great accomodation, weather and beach, couldn’t fault it

Stayed June 2020

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your Bachcare home. So many positive aspects, such as location to the Paraparaumu Beach Shopping Centre which accommodated all our needs from cafes, to the local 4-square along with the best fish and chips we've ever had at the McLean Street Fish Supply! The house was sunny, private and quiet with the most beautiful view of the sea and Kapiti Island. A private walkway down to the beach and what a beach - just fantastic for big, long walks. The weather was great but evenings got a little cold but the gas heater was another fantastic aspect to the house heating the open area downstairs very quickly. Sky TV, Netflix and lots of hot water with great water pressure in the shower - what more could you ask for. Thanks again. We would definitely come back for a break away!

Christine was a wonderful manager.Top marks to her.

Stayed February 2020

A great house for family to gather in - perfect location, good space for parking and playing outside and for eating together or getting time-out on the balcony/in the rumpus room when inside. Highly recommend.

Stayed February 2020

Such a gorgeous view from this property and walking distance to local eateries. But I think it's a little pricey for what you get. The property is a little tired and in need of some TLC. More importantly, I think we paid a premium for the absolute beach front location. However, we made no use of the beach front location as we had to share the beach with boaties launching their vessels a few hundred metres down the road and using the beach as a carpark, dirt bikes and teens cruising the beach in their cars. We might have spent a maximum of 10 minutes on the beach in front of the property as being on the beach was like trying to have a picnic in the middle of a busy supermarket carpark! These latter points are obviously no fault of the owners but perhaps the nightly rate needs to reflect the location. We weren't aware that cars were allowed on this beach so we are unlikely to return to Paraparaumu beach.

Stayed February 2020

We loved this house. It was on the beachfront and within a nice easy stroll down to the cafes and shops. It is lovely and sunny and warm. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed August 2019

Roomy house with good facilities; close to beach and great views of Kapiti Island.
