I would never deny a guest their happy place, and if that happens to be a pipe, a bottle, or whatever, then do enjoy your vice of choice! :) The sheltered porch has cushions and seats up to 4... and the perfect place to light a pipe.
Pets? Two cats and chickens live here. Property isn't fenced, but one small breed dog, under control, is fine. No animals on the furniture.
If you're travelling with food and drinks, do bring a bag of ice, and borrow my chilly bin. My fridge is usually full.
My place isn't that suitable for infants and toddlers beyond just an overnight stay. There is no cot or high chair. Ungated stairs, and hazards for mobile infants.
Checkout time is flexible when there is no booking that night.

Hi, I've been a B&B host on and off over the years because I love working in hospitality. I've worked as a chef and housekeeper at Cassimir Luxury Lodge in Tauranga and Oak Ridge Lodge at Lake Wanaka - at the luxury and affordable luxury end of the market. I also started the Red Rabbit Countryrest in the Rangitikei in 2011. After a fast-paced career in marketing and sales in Auckland, I've returned to the Kapiti coast, my childhood home. The riding stables at Peka Peka where my father used to take me horse riding on the beach had long gone. So, having two horses I decided I would offer guided personal horse trekking. My passions are cooking, gardening, horse-riding, kayaking, and home improvement projects. I also enjoy playing guitar and being involved in the folk music community. If you would like to sit, chat, eat together, then please suggest that. But I don't assume you want extra company. Once I'm finished in the kitchen, preparing your breakfast, I'll withdraw to do my own thing.

Während deines Aufenthaltes
I am unobtrusively in residence, (or out doing stuff), except to help guests with organising a range of experiences and adventures, including beach sausage sizzle, picnic baskets, kayak hire and horse trekking.

I'm delighted cater for you, restaurant-quality meals in-house with advance notice. However, if the munchies should suddenly descend on you, never fear --- "Pot Luck" is where you tell your personal sous chef, I'm hungry and please feed me. NOW. Then you'll get a choice of whatever can be rustled, a nibbles platter, flash toasted sandwiches or a flash omelette.

On occasion I've been happy to be roped in as a driver. Not only to drop-off and pick-up guests from train and bus, or the kayak to the river. But also to show guests around local places of interest, wineries, cafes, picnic and swimming spots on the river, and stunning bush walks. My ute takes 4 passengers. Mileage reimbursement applies and any charges for picnics.

For beginners, a fun sit-on kayak, life jacket and paddle, with a hand trolley for easy walk to the beach, is available. Getting the kayak to the beach is "do it yourself" basis, with the easy hand trolley. Mangaone stream mouth offers a calm, shallow lagoon for kids to safely play with the kayak. The larger Otaki lagoon & river paddling involves organising transportation, drop-off and pickup.

For the highly adventurous, check out Kapiti Island Sea Kayak and Hike. It looks like a real Bucket-Lister, and I'm up for doing it one of these days.
Suitable for novices through to expert paddlers. Duration 6 hours, meeting at 9am at Kapiti Boating Club. Maximum of 8 people. Kayak around Kapiti Island in the Kapiti Marine Reserve with an experienced guide, in a small group. Experience the stunning bush walks on the island, and see the native birds. Enjoy the abundance of wildlife in this pocket of New Zealand. The cost is around $160, and it must be booked well in advance. Ask host to check dates availability.
