Relax and get away from it all in the quaint seaside town of Riverton.

This new holiday home is just perfect for a romantic escape.

Spend your day at the beach or just soaking up some sun on the deck, and then relax with a glass of wine and a BBQ dinner. This really is the traditional kiwi holiday at its best!

The ranch slider opens out onto the huge deck and extensive lawn for great indoor outdoor flow.

All day sun streams in the windows, with double glazing keeping the bach lovely and cosy in winter.

Inside are all the conveniences you could need – a modern kitchen, bathroom and laundry – with the gas hot water system delivering incredible showers.

Beautiful Taramea bay beach is only 100m from your doorstep, with safe swimming and one of the country’s last soundshells.

Riverton boasts a plethora of outdoor activities – from surfing, fishing and watersports to golfing and scenic walks. Take time to browse through the local shops for arts and crafts, revisit early settler history at Te Hikoi Southern Journey museum, or head to one of the local cafes to sample some delicious Southland fare and enjoy the stunning sea views.

  •  We really enjoyed our stay in Riverton! The bach was comfortable, clean and warm on a very wintery weekend. We appreciated the helpful information left by the owners both for the house and for things to see and do in Riverton. 

  •  Liked the cosy feel to the crib. Warm and comfortable. 

  •  As above. Very quick and easy to book. No problems at all.
