Castlecliff is an amazingly relaxed and fantastic place to live. Most places that have what we have are either so remote that while fantastic to visit, are too expensive to live at, or if you can ever afford it you've missed your best chance to enjoy it.
We reckon we're lucky to get the best of all worlds where we can afford to live a beach lifestyle and play year round.

OUR CITY CONNECTIONS:
Unlike many beach areas Castlecliff is fully connected with the things that make life easier like gas, power, sewerage, a regular bus service and a hospital less than a kilometre away in Gonville, Whanganui.
OUR WORLD CONNECTIONS:
We've recently improved our connections to the world with ultra reliable, ultra fast fibre internet connections available directly into our homes. For many new residents this is key to unlocking a telecommuting lifestyle that balances working and conferencing with colleagues worldwide with the ability to be surfing or fishing minutes after disconnecting!
Of course for those times when you just have to be there Whanganui Airport operates scheduled flights to Auckland International Airport with Palmerston North airport 1 hours drive and Wellington International around 2 and a half hours (scheduled to reduce with the $850,000,000 Transmission Gulley highway improvements)
Castlecliff has an extensive history. Originally known as Kokohuia it was at one time an exclusive and independent seaside town of houses, baches and whares with it's own tramline to Wanganui. Notable events have often centered on the beach - for example the Port Bowen wreck. We intend to expand separate pages on Castlecliff's history to this site and would appreciate any material and suggestions.

"Castlecliff is stirring - and the rest of Whanganui his now waking up to the potential of its beachside suburb.
"It was almost at a tipping point. And it's just, the right people have become involved to kick it over that tipping point. And now it feels like it's snowballing,"
