  • All day sun, modern, warm and light. Lovely rural outlook, watch the weka at sunrise and sunset.
  • Tranquil, no immediate neigbours. Well presented with modern conveniences and very clean.
  • 5 minutes drive to whitebaiting/fishing on the Karamea River. Store for basic supplies nearby.

This wee house is in the most remote location in New Zealand that can be reached by road. Twenty minutes drive from the start of the Heaphy track, one of New Zealand's nine iconic Great Walks (can now be mountain biked for eight months of the year!).

Stunning rainforests, fantastic trout fishing, whitebaiting...yummy! The honeycomb caves where you can see Moa bones, the magical Oparara arches and limestone caves are awe inspiring and accessible to the moderately fit!

Kiwi heritage brilliantly told that will take you back to NZ’s pioneering era.

All within 20 minutes drive from the house.

Karamea has a lovely mild micro-climate (you can grow tamarillos and bananas here!).

This is a great holiday location in Spring and Autumn as well as in the summer due to the moderate climate.

Bring your mountain bike (or hire one here), fly fishing and/or surf casting rod, whitebait net and tramping boots.

Not exactly a girl’s spa weekend destination…more like full on outdoors fun for the whole family and then relax!

Fully equipped with modern washing machine and fridge (and beer fridge) but no dishwasher.

Comfy modern beds with duvets. A large gas BBQ. Wall panel heaters to keep you cosy in the winter.

This bach is owned by a family with ties to Karamea that go back over 150 years. It's part of our family so come and share 'cos it's pretty special here.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Yes, I agree, they can be a bit annoying altho' they are not REALLY bad. I'd like to put screens in next year if I get enough bookings to cover the cost. I reinvest any profit back into improving the property. What I do is open all the windows so they just fly in one side and out the other!
