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.

    We were hugely fortunate to have glorious Autumn weather for our 5-night stay at this real treasure. Pink Pipi offers a peaceful, relaxing, warm and comfortable experience with its old-school Kiwi bach charm. It's great to give yourself over to the ever-changing rhythms of the estuary, and to occasionally set out on foot to explore a little wider. Our daily kayak expeditions were a highlight (but look out for the grumpy sea lion who chased a couple of less fortunate kayakers).

    This place was great a true kiwi batch with the water a few meters away. We had 2 kids under 2 and they loved all the toys and books. A great range of board games also. We would definitely stay here again.
