    The train only goes as far as paraparaumu, The next town up is waekanae. There are a lot of suburbs in paraparumu. There is the capital connection (diesel) that runs once a day from Palmerston north.

    You have coastlands mall and a pak-n-save so lots of amenities in Paraparam. It sis just under and hour to wellington. There are some express trains in the morning that make less stops. Also the bus is pretty good as well.

    School wise you have lots of choice. You have everything from Te RA Waldorf on Poplar Ave to Kapiti College.

    Depends on you budget. Do you want something cheap or close to the beach?

    Tell me a little more what you want and I can be more specific. Buy, Rent. If you go into Wellington the train is your best option. Petrol is expensive and then you have to pay to park.

    I lived in Kapiti (Raumati South) for 11 years and just recently left.

    A suggestion would be contact Della Randall , this page that has her info is: Listings from Della Randall - Realestate.co.nz

    She is THE top rated real estate sales person in the area and is a nice person also. 10 to 1 she can help you find exactly what you want. She really knows the area and what is going on. Best of all it won't cost you a thing. You can tell her I referred you but it isn't required.
