Regional Review: Kapiti Coast and Horowhenua

The Kapiti Coast and Horowhenua regions are sandwiched between Wellington and Palmerston North on the west coast of the North Island.

In Kapiti the drawcard is the seaside living, quaint towns and remote lifestyle with easy access to Wellington; and in Horowhenua the focus is more on farming, small town living and the rural lifestyle.

Both areas are experiencing growth late in the property cycle as the high prices and shortages in Wellington and Palmerston North push city goers further afield to find more affordable accommodation.
