Where is it?


Our home is in a small seaside village of about 500 permanent residents which grows at weekends and holiday times. Their is a local shop for all your daily needs, with a small town (Foxton) 15 kms away where their is a supermarket, post office, banks, etc. Also in our village their is a Cossie Club (small tavern type place where you can have a drink or meal or both). The place is very friendly and everyone you meet will greet you with a cheery hello etc. We are situated only 500 metres from the beach where at low tide you can drive in either direction for about 10 kms, (we have our own beach buggy/made up old car for travelling on the beach). We are 30kms from Palmerston North (population 67,000). One and a half hours drive from Wellington (Capital City) two hours either to the east coast (Napier/Hastings) or the mountains or to Taranaki, as you can see we are very central to most attraction in the lower North Island. Ski fields are 90 minutes away at Mt Ruapehu.
