Sitting on absolute beachfront, the warm and cozy La Casa de la Playa is a beautiful Ernst Plischke designed house on the Kapiti Coast.

With three bedrooms and a bunk room in the sunporch, there is plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy a beachside escape in Kiwi holiday style! The open plan living is bright and welcoming with beachy tones and nautical styling. The lounge opens out onto the paved courtyard and grassy yard stretching out to the sands of Waikanae Beach.

Wake up and stroll out into the garden, where you can conduct the morning surf report with a cup of Nespresso coffee in hand. After a morning dip, the hot water outdoor shower is on hand to rinse off the salt and sand, before frying up some bacon and eggs on the BBQ!

La Casa de la Playa is ideal for water lovers, with plenty of room to park the boat on site, as well as kayaks and boogie boards available for use. If your ideal holiday = nothing but relaxation; the bookshelf is well-stocked, and the golden sands of Waikanae Beach are the perfect place to park a towel and work on your tan!

This home is in the Olde Beach area of Waikanae in walking distance to shops, tennis court, golf course, gallery and cinema, as well as the delicious French bakery.

Whatever your holiday style, life is better (literally) on the beach. Fall in love with this slice of paradise at La Casa de la Playa!

Stayed January 2022

Amazing location right on the beach. Super comfortable beds and furniture. Stunning views of Kapiti, especially at sunset. Easy stroll to the cafes and Olde Beach Bakery. Perfect place for a relaxing and easy beach holiday just an hour out of Wellington.

Stayed November 2021

Perfect location on a gorgeous beach. The house is nicely renovated while retaining the original character of a family bach, complete with cupboards full of jigsaw puzzles and a collection of lawn games.

Amazing location in a real beach style Bach. Photos probably don’t do it fair justice. Great place for families and kind of nice to go tech free (kids were shocked to find no TV but loved playing with the basic sports toys on site)!

If as a family, you want to stay at a comfortable, wonderful NZ bach right on beachfront, this is your place.

Stayed December 2019

Fantastic location, excellent facilities and amenities provided, good water supply both hot and cold. A fine example of a typical kiwi holiday house by the sea. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed June 2019

This absolute beachfront property was perfect for our ladies weekend away. The bedrooms are close together and the kitchen is small but I would still highly recommend it to anyone looking to book.
