The Villa Karaka Bay, is located on the sea front at Karaka Bay in Seatoun.

Featuring twin bay windows with sash panes and stained glass sky-lights, Villa Karaka Bay has been carefully restored to provide self-contained accommodation.

Guests have 2 bedrooms, King and King split, each with its own en-suite bathroom. A fully equipped kitchen enables guests to self cater.

  • Such a great cottage

    Such a great cottage. It is hard to get motivated to explore the beautiful area when you have such tranquil accommodations. The only negative is you need to be aware that it is not close to restaurants or stores. You need to buy supplies before you arrive as nothing is close. The ocean sounds will make you forget you have nothing to eat. Very comfortable for two couples. Would definitely stay again

  • Exactly what we needed, fantastic views whatever the weather

    Exactly what we needed, fantastic views whatever the weather. Great heater on the cold nights and east commute into Wellington for shows and restaurants.
