Where you’ll be

Waikanae, Wellington, New Zealand

We live in a fabulous area where we are only a short distance to Nga Manu Nature Reserve, river, beach and great bushwalks. Coastlands shopping mall is approx. 15 min drive away from us, close to train and bus and an easy train ride to Wellington. It's all here on the sunny Kapiti Coast.
