  • 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.

  • Location is perfect for the family

    Location is perfect for the family. Tide out - explore for crabs and shells, tide in - jump on the kayaks. We will be back.

  • Absolutely loved Pink Pipi

    Absolutely loved Pink Pipi. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. The location is superb. The kayaks were brilliant and well used. Highly recommend this property and hopefully will be back again soon

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property, it's an authentic Kiwi bach in a marvelous position on the beach. The views are beautiful, the bach is well equipped and warm, the locality is great. We enjoyed lots of walks, and our grandchildren really enjoyed their stay at the Pink Pipi

    Quaint kiwi bach right on waters edge, fantastic location for summer but loses sun early in winter. However, log burner warms it up well (check to see if you need to bring newspaper to start fire). Shower has great pressure, there was a problem with water temperature, hopefully owner has fixed it. The queen bed was nice and comfy. Well equiped bach.
