Helen’s Waikanae Beach B&B is situated on a beautiful sandy and safe swimming beach, approximately 55 minutes drive north of central city Wellington.

With spectacular views of Kapiti Island, often extending all the way to the South Island, you will find this the perfect relaxing location, yet close enough to all amenities, including the ferry to the South Island.

If you wish, we can assist you with your ongoing travel and accommodation requirements.

On State Highway 1, travelling north from Wellington:

  • Turn left into Te Moana Road after crossing the Waikanae Bridge (the distance from SH1 to the beach is approx. 6 kms)
  • Follow the road down andkeep left at Warwick's Automotive Services Ltd
  • Turn left into Tutere Street upon reaching the T intersection at the end of the road
  • Keep a look out for number 115 on your right
  • On reaching 115 Tutere, drive up shared driveway, turning right at the top and park in front of sea-side garage door. Thank you.


“Helen has made every effort to make our stay so special. From an exquisite breakfast, to the crisp linen sheets and fresh fruit and home made cookies and chocolate cake! Every opportunity is made and this is without doubt the best B&B we have stayed in over 14 nights in New Zealand.”
