 It was not far from Dunedin or Moeraki - and we could easily walk/bike into karitane. we did need a boat (which was left at home) to do any fishing. still had plenty to do with the lovely walks - would definitely go back. Great place to stay fantastic views of karitane and the beach.

 Stunning outlook, close to local shop, marae, church, beach and estuary. Good parking, easy access, comfortable and welcoming. Wonderful - we will book again. 

 Tirimoana is the perfect spot for a group get together and our group of 11 were really impressed with the house and it's history. The location is great for exploring this area of New Zealand and has the bonus of being only 20 miin or so from Dunedin. The house is particularly well set up for groups. Lovely big well catered for kitchen, BBQ, loads of space to spread out and amazing views down to the sea. The beds and bedding ,too, we're very comfy and clean and we all slept like logs. Faultless!
