    This is a small but neat and comfortable property just outside the Karamea township. It is very peaceful and set in a really attractive environment.

    The Jester's Nest is a totally self-contained unit and very private. We were supplied with more than we needed and much enjoyed relaxing there after our trips out. The place is clean, sunny and comfortable. Highly recommended.
