Description

  • Situated right on the estuary at Karitane, couldn't get any closer to the water
  • Very comfortable, fully equipped house with gorgeous views
  • Short walk to surf beach, local shop and playground

Historic 100 year old house right on the estuary. Formerly the home of the fishing station manager, servicing Sea Cliff asylum.

Right on the estuary at Karitane. You couldn't get any closer to the water's edge!

The estuary provides a safe tidal swimming area for you and your family. Bring your fishing rods and come and play. We have kayaks for you to use. At low tide, enjoy hunting for crabs with the kids or dig for cockles for your dinner. You might see Harold, the resident sea lion in Karitane Harbour.

Put your feet up with a book and a cold drink on the deck while your BBQ lunch is cooking.

Fancy a short walk to Karitane Beach? Enjoy swimming or surfing at the beach. Ride a push bike along Karitane beach at low tide to the rock pools at the southern end. (2 adult bikes and 2 kids bikes supplied). Walk to the blow holes at the northern end of the beach.

The local shop is only a brief walk and stocks all of your essentials.

Karitane is only 35km north from Dunedin.

  • Right on the water

    Right on the water. You can watch water birds or collect cockles for dinner at low tide or go kayaking at high tide(even during high tide the water isn't very deep). Karitane has a great beach for swimming if it's warm enough, or for climbing over the rocks looking for sea stars. Lots of books and games if it is wet. All conditions are covered.

  • Great location

    Great location. If looking for a traditional kiwi batch experience this is the spot to be. Kiwiana at its best basic old fashioned batching in a warm, welcoming and relaxed environment. Well equipped. Throughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.
