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.

  • Rustic, comfortable, great views and within walking distance to great walks

    Rustic, comfortable, great views and within walking distance to great walks. But things are a bit tired and one bathroom with many adults had a bit of pressure on it. Appreciated heaters in every room as cold at this time of the year.

  • Our five star rating is for location, bach facilities and homeliness

    Our five star rating is for location, bach facilities and homeliness. Do not expect luxury, expect complete and utter relaxation and comfort in this quintessential Kiwi bach. Everything is provided - just bring your own food and beverages. Right on the estuary and close enough to the beach to hear the waves. Karitane offers so much - shhhh, it's NZ's best kept secret.
