  • An amazing wee retreat in an idyllic setting

    An amazing wee retreat in an idyllic setting. Loved watching the endless sunsets from the outdoor bath. The caboose is perfect!

  • We loved the caboose and the outside bathroom

    We loved the caboose and the outside bathroom. However we were surprised at how close the owners house was to the caboose, as we had expected the caboose to be more private.

    Good location with sea and town within a few kilometers. The accommodation is quirky but as described

    The property is inbetween Takaka on the way to Pohara and is about five minutes drive to either place, just off the main road. The caboose is ablsolutely stunning, quirky and cute. There has been love and care put into creating an unique little spot. I went with my 16 year old daughter and we both loved taking turns in the outdoor bath, outdoor rainwater shower and hammock. There was a little table ideally situated for me to reach for a wine glass as I gazed at the stars. Absolutely stunning

    We loved the simplicity and quirkiness of the Caboose. Staying at the Caboose made our stay in Pohara very memorable. We loved the outside bath and shower and wouldn't hesitate to return.
