Wake up, hit the beach and then come home to Calapso Cottage to fire up the BBQ and have a cold drink out on the sundeck!

When you need a bright, relaxing and warm holiday home for this beachy adventure, look no further than Calapso Cottage. This recently renovated home has all the essentials including, air conditioning or heat pump to set the ideal temperature and a TV equipped with Chromecast, WiFi and DVD player for chill nights on the couch!

Spend your days down by the water, toes in the sand and sunblock on your nose less than 500m from your door. Leave the car at home. First thing in the morning, brew a good cup of coffee on the coffee machine and cook up a storm in the kitchen to make sure everyone is energised for the day ahead.

Before you head down to the beach, stop by Old Beach Bakery, just a 4-minute walk, and pick up some treats to enjoy down on the beach for lunch. And if you don't feel like cooking, pop down to the Waimea Restaurant for dinner by the beach.

For convenience and a bit of peace of quiet - Calapso Cottage has you covered.

We travelled for my brother's graduation. The neighbour showed up on the morning after arrival asking if we could go inside and talk when we're home. I thought was rude and she seemed to be intolerant. Only 3 of us on the deck. We were very mindful of the neighbour's and our family who were already asleep in the sleepout. So, dont really understand what she was talking about. Otherwise, the place was very warm, cozy and perfect!

Great place for a lovely family getaway. Close to the beach, park and food outlets. Our grandies thoroughly enjoyed playing with the many games and toys.

Amazing house, close to the beach and amenities. Such a cosy welcoming house, just had everything we needed for a great break away with family.

Stayed April 2021

This place was in an ideal location, very close to the beach! It was still pretty warm when it was cold at night and was comfortable and cozy! We had a perfect stay and the communication was excellent. Thank you for an awesome stay

Stayed March 2021

The house was great, beds were comfortable and loved all the quirky decor, and loved the music collection!. Was just what we needed for a family weekend.

Stayed February 2021

Great place to stay has that family vibe to it. When you look around the house it is like walking into a mini museum of where the owner has travelled it's cool. We booked this place last minute as the place we were suppose to get couldn't give it to us because of the 3 day COVID announcement. Really happy we got this a day before we were due to go on our little family get away thanks for letting us stay :-)

Stayed February 2021

We had a great stay and loved sleeping in the pod while our teenaged children slept in the main house. Had everything we needed and lots of activities/games etc too. Would stay again.

Stayed January 2021

Great stay - brilliant location so close to shops and beach. Great outdoor spaces to relax or play games with kids. We'll be back again

Lovely home, good location.

Stayed October 2020

At Calapso Cottage everything is there that you might need for a long or short stay; a real home away from home. Cheerful, comfortable and roomy and the Pod is a real bonus. We would have loved to stay longer. Very close to some good restaurants in Waikanae and the wider Kapiti Coast and close enough to Wellington to make that an easy journey. It would be a great house to stay in for a family holiday.

great house in great location to everything at Waikanae beach. Plenty of space for our party of 8. Awesome backyard which would be wonderful in summer. Kitchen had everything you needed.

Exceptional accommodation for our August golf trip. We were 4 fellas wanting a base for easy access to golf courses and dining options. Calypso Cottage was perfect really. Plenty of space, insulated and warm, excellent location and well appointed (wifi, DVDs, ChromeCast, hifi system). The nearby local bakery is quite rightly an iconic business. Open early each morning, 7 days a week and producing high quality breads, pastries, coffees and more. Also, several excellent dinner options offering good variety - Long Beach & Waikanae Boating Club were standouts. Raewyn was an excellent host who provided timely and helpful communications. We genuinely expect to return again in the near future. Thank you!

This was a great family friendly place. All the fun extras - board games, dvds, books, toys, big back yard made it such a great place with our 6 year old twins!! They had a ball and didn’t even get their own toys out the whole time. Good location near the Waikanae Beach. Neat kids playground on the beach front, beautiful wide flat beach for walking miles - a ver relaxed area to stay. Only a 5 minute drive on the expressway to the shopping hub area in Paraparaumu. Recommend the Marine Gardens playground in Raumati on a Sunday afternoon when the miniature trains are running. Good fun.
