Kaiteri House, sleeping four adults and four children, is perfect for a family holiday handy to iconic beaches and the Abel Tasman Park.

Designed by Nelson architect Ian Jack, this pole house has 4 floor levels, high-pitched wooden ceilings and open plan living spaces. There are 3 bedrooms - 2 doubles (the master with ensuite) and the “attic” which is a favourite with children. The mezzanine floor, with sofabed, provides an extra space for a quiet read or children’s games.

Two covered decks provide extra space to read, dine or play. Light and airy in summer, the house is warm and cosy in cooler months with a log burner and heat pump. The laundry and kitchen have everything needed for a pleasant stay (apart from a dishwasher).

The elevated site enjoys tranquility, abundant birdlife, and panoramic views over native bush to the main beach and Little Kaiteriteri, across Tasman Bay to Nelson and south to the ranges beyond Motueka.

Kaiteri House is 1 km from Breaker Bay and Kaiteriteri Beach with its general store, restaurants, and children’s playground. Access to the beach is by road, or (for the adventurous) via a rough walking track from the section. Famous for its beaches, Kaiteriteri is a place for all seasons. Swim, water ski, hire a kayak, try out the mountain bike park. Take a day trip by boat into the famous Abel Tasman track. In the evening, BBQ on the deck, take in the views and sample a local wine or craft beer.

House best suited to 4 adults and four children.

  • This property is an amazing gem with the most phenomenal views

    This property is an amazing gem with the most phenomenal views. We could have sat on the balcony and stared at the view all day and listened to al the native birds. The house is really well set up with a fantastic kitchen and dinning for a group of friends or family and the beds are amazing and so comfortable! Our only note to be mindful of is that linen is extra per person ($40 for a couple!!) The extra $100 for 5 people was a lil excessive and would prefer it built into nightly rental :)

    Owner/manager responds:

    Many thanks for your message and feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Kaiteri House. In the low season only, linen is charged at $20.00 per person. This charge is case by case and people are welcome to bring their own. In this case as it was a very late booking we gave you full access to our home and personal space, therefore, we charged you $20.00 per person.
