Southland beech timber is a feature of this recently renovated traditional-style Kiwi bach.

Only one street back from Taramea Bay beach, the house is nestled in a private garden setting and is a lovely place to relax and retreat after a day in the sun.

The bath and ‘shower room’ are special features, and there's gas hot water.

Riverton has a great range of restaurants and cafes. The Beach House Restaurant is a 10-minute stroll away along the beachfront, and Taramea Bay takeaways is only five minutes walk away for fish and chips on the beach.

There is a children’s playground and plenty of room to run around at Taramea Bay. The sand slopes very gradually out to the sea, so when the tide is in the shallow water is very safe for swimming.

A walking track hugs the coast almost all the way along the waterfront to the more rugged south coast and you can see Stewart Island from there.

Drive up to Mores Reserve and a short walk to a lookout provides fantastic views over the Riverton Estuary, West to Colac Bay and south to Stewart Island.

For rainy days there are plenty of books, a blu ray player and freeview tv, games and even a piano to tinkle. And there are two lounge areas separated by a door - ideal to keep both readers and television watchers happy.

Extras: Linen (included);

PLEASE NOTE: As is the Kiwi bach tradition, you are expected to clean the house and do the dishes before you leave.
