The guest suite occupies the downstairs portion of our house. It is self contained with a private entrance from a deck leading to the garden.
It has a large master bedroom, a lounge with kitchenette & separate bathroom.
The bathroom is bright, light & has modern fittings with shower, WC & vanity.
The lounge includes a sofa bed, window seat, dining area & kitchenette, with facilities to self cater if required.
There is a garden gate which gives access to the nature reserve, river and beach.

The space
At our doorstep we have Waikanae Beach, Waikanae River & Estuary & the Waimanu Lagoons.
The estuary is a feeding & breeding ground for many bird species.
All areas offer plenty of walking & cycling tracks.
In our area, at the end of the street are 3 cafes. There is also a mini 4 Square supermarket and not far away is a French style bakery & fish & chip shop. They are a 15-20min walk away, either along the street or walking the beach or it's a 3 min drive. So plenty of options nearby for food & good coffee.
In the Waikanae Village are 2 larger supermarkets, chemists and Shoreline picture theatre.
There are numerous other takeaways & cafe options too.

Location

Waikanae, Wellington, New Zealand

This is a quiet neighbourhood, bordered by lagoons and nature reserves.
It has traditionally been a holiday location, but more permanent residents now occupy the housing. There are cycleways and walkways mapped out in the area. They occupy both sides of the river & further afield along the Expressway to neighbouring villages.

We enjoy the outdoors, walking & cycling. (Roger enjoys cycling more than me)We have a passion for our environment & treasure it. Every year, for the past 15 years we have undertaken a 3-4 day (catered) walk in different parts of NZ, with a group of friends. That has been a very active holiday, but the emphasis is on friendship & social interaction. Someone said - "it's walking between meals" but you certainly earn your supper! As hosts, we would accord you all the privacy you require. We are there for guidance. We want you to have a wonderful, stressfree time. Everyone needs "down time" to recharge their batteries. Everyone have different reasons for being in a place. All are valid. We've enjoyed travelling overseas and the memorable times are those when we have connected with local people. Local knowledge is worth it's weight in gold. While travelling, we value having time to ourselves as well. To unwind and have some quiet time too. There needs to be a balance. We love to go to movies & attend the International Film Festival in Wellington every year. We always chose a number of dramas - always a variety of cultures in the mix, and some documentaries. We enjoy good food & wine and are fortunate to live in an area where fresh produce & fish is in abundance. Cooking is a pleasure. We grow seasonal vegetables and have 5 hens, 2 of whom lay eggs. It's enough to supply us & neighbours in fresh, free range eggs. The other 3 are seeing out their retirement.
