Only 20 minutes' by car or train from downtown Wellington city, Porirua City's housing market offers excellent value for money, whether buying a house for the first time, looking for a spacious, family-friendly home or comfortable executive living. Life in the city is described by its residents as 'easy going' and 'laid back'.

The city has 54km of varied coastline and two harbours, and is 81% rural, so most homes enjoy views of the sea or countryside and the most stunning sunsets! Access to the city's many beaches, parks and reserves is close by and shopping in the CBD couldn't be easier, with no congestion and free parking.

Porirua comprises a series of 'villages' each with its own landscape and character. These thriving communities quickly give newcomers a sense of belonging through friendly neighbours, active school communities and the huge choice of sports and cultural clubs and other local activities.

 In Porirua, locals value their close proximity to the bright lights of cosmopolitan Wellington city for when they're in the mood - but they choose to live in a relaxed refuge away from the rat race, where being at home feels like being on holiday.
