Modern Sunny Beach House

 We had a great time at this really well maintained home. Good size for a group looking to get away for a weekend. Perfect location a block and a half from the beach and fish and chip shop. Thanks very much. Would definitely use again. 

Modern Sunny Beach House

 The Bach was great, nice and tidy. Plenty of room. Great back yard for kids to run around. Nice and close to beach. 

Amazing views of the bay and beach

 Great place for a holiday with the grandchildren - saw dolphins in the estuary. There was Art on the Estuary between the tides. Recommend the Post Office Bakery too. 

Elevated with stunning views of Harbour & Estuary

 The owner provided clear instructions and we had no problems with the place. It has a lovely yard and is easy to find. Plenty of beds and rooms, great for a larger group. 30mins to Invercargill made a pleasant day trip.The beach around toward Riverton Rocks is close-by. The bach does show its age but is fully functional, clean and we enjoyed our stay. 

Amazing views of the bay and beach

 Wonderful view, great décor, comfy bed. Everything we needed for the two night's we stayed. Easy to keep clean and tidy. Shop at bottom of street had great fish and chips, and the coffee shop up the road had a fabulous restaurant fro breakfast through to dinner if required, with great views there too! Next Riverton stay we hope we can get this booking again. 

White Ivory Cottage, Riverton
