Description

  • 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.

Special conditions: Smoking outside only No pets Deck not suitable for babies and toddlers, about 500mm at highest point House to be locked when guests are absent from property Any damage will be charged for

  • Clean, well-equipped, comfortable bach

    Clean, well-equipped, comfortable bach. Bookabach charged us a $27.00 service fee that was not included up front in the price. This type of deception is out of keeping with our previous contacts with Bookabach. Also, we made a mistake when booking and ordered linen for three people instead of two. There was no way to correct this error on the Bookabach website so we had to pay extra. We will try to book directly with the owner in the future.

    This is a very tidy, clean, well-appointed house in a rural location very near Karamea. It has screened windows to keep out unwanted sandflies and such. It is quiet and located a short distance from mountain walking tracks and the beach. We very much njoyed our stay
