A delightful oasis on the Kapiti Coast of the North IsIand of New Zealand.

My family of four spent 11 nights at Derek's cottage in Raumati South. We rented his place because of its proximity to my parents' home in Waikanae. I was familiar with the location, which is just a few minutes away from the lovely Raumati Village, which was immensely convenient…

Response from Derek:
Thanks for this review Nick. It is very helpful as this is the first winter the cottage has been on AirBnb – we usually rent it out for 5-6 months in a single tenancy. In the warm and dry months the living, cooking and dining makes use of the lovely outdoor space and 6-burner barbecue; while invariably during the cold and wet months the living, cooking and dining has to be indoors. I am sorry that your wife had so much frustration in the kitchen – I hope it did not ruin the family holiday. We will look at upgrading the pots and pans for future gourmand chefs, however in 20+ years of renting out the cottage this is the first time they have been mentioned. Cheers Derek

Derek was a great host and was very quick to reply to questions. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.Loved Raumati - heaps of neat eating places. A very relaxing cottage that is close enough to Wellington to visit the city.

Lovely cottage with a very sunny, sheltered and private backyard which was great for our kids. The electric blankets on the bed were particularly welcome on the cool nights. Clean and had everything we needed. Would book again.

Cute little cottage with nice deck and fenced garden for the kids. Short walk down the driveway to the beach. We stayed in winter and the house was very quick to warm up. We were 2 adults and 4 kids so it was a bit of a squeeze! There are some lovely cafes near by. Derek was a lo…
