Property prices along the Kapiti Coast, in towns like Waikanae & Paekakariki, are a number of the most reasonable in the Wellington area.
Waikanae is the last cease for most of the trains that will take you south to Wellington for simple city access. Thirteen dollars will give you full train access for a day. The tickets let you make multiple stops along the way & return home at the finish of the day on the same fare. Traveling the full line takes about fifty-five minutes.
The downside to living along the Kapiti Coast is the hour long commute for those who work in Wellington can get a little overwhelming. This is made simpler with the TranzMetro trains that offer reliable service to & from the city every hour & half every hour in the work of peak times. In case you can find work in the area, or only must commute or days per week, the Kapiti Coast offers all the amenities that mean regular journeys to the city are unnecessary.
