Description

  • Privately located at the end of a no entry for privacy
  • Close to the Colac Bay beach and elevated views of Colac Bay and Kawakaputa Bay
  • Great family and friends bach and perfect for weekends and weeks away.

Positioned only 9km from the small fishing town of Riverton, the Shangri La Crib is ideally located on a hilltop over looking both Colac Bay (Orepuki Bay) and Kawakaputa Bay. Boasting mature gardens and one of the few cribs in the area to have views over both bays, the Shangri La is your home away from home. The ideal place for a weekend getaway from Invercargill or Queenstown, the Shangri La offers all the comforts of home in this idyllic setting. The Shangri La Crib has plenty of space for multiple guests and/or families and has all the modern conveniences you need, whilst maintaining that traditional "Kiwi Bach" feel.

Bright and very warm in the summer, the Shangri La is also an amazing place in the colder months, with a powerful woodburner providing warmth; conducive to whiling away the hours playing games or reading books. The master bedroom has two heaters for winter. The Shangri La is located in Colac Bay (Oraka in Maori), a small township, situated 10 minutes from Riverton, around 25 minutes from Invercargill and around 2h 20 minutes from Queenstown. Located on the Southern Scenic Route, one of New Zealand's most spectacuar drives, Colac Bay is easily accessible from many towns and cities. There is plenty to do in the area, from walks on the beach, bush walks, driving the Southern Scenic Route, visiting nearby Riverton, fishing, collecting mussels, fishing for blue cod, shopping in Invercarcgill or simply relaxing in the Shangri La gardens.

    Fantastic private spot with amazing views to get away from it all. Well equiped, cozy & comfortable crib. Excellent spot for getting paua & mussels.

  • The Shangrila crib was a real gem in a brilliant location

    The Shangrila crib was a real gem in a brilliant location. We particularly loved the upstairs bedroom with views of two different bays, snow capped mountains, and farmland.

  • We were disappointed To say it needs attention is an understatement

    We were disappointed To say it needs attention is an understatement. We were charged $1120.00 for 7 nights and felt we were 'ripped off'. - the latch broke on entrance door - it couldn't be opened - the side gate was hanging off its hinges - Smell from septic tank was very noticeable inside & out - crockery chipped & dirty, cutlery inadequate - Bedding old & well used - window came off hinges - Fridge & microwave need replacing - log burner works but is old & rusty

    What a great place to stay! Unfortunately the weather wasn't wonderful the week we stayed, but there were plenty of board games to keep us entertained and the house was warm. The Colac bay pub does great meals and the locals are really friendly. Heaps of places to go and visit and it's a beautiful part of the country. We will defiantly be back.
