  • A short winding drive takes you back 30 years to the New Zealand we always imagined.

  • A perfect ten minutes from a good cup of coffee in Carterton

RiverView is a warm and welcoming family home overlooking expansive farm land, river boundary and views across the Tararua ranges.

If you are looking for an antidote to city living then you have just found it.

The Wairarapa region is well known for great food, wine and boutique shopping experiences. If you can drag yourself away from staring at the view from the veranda, RiverView is just 15 minutes easy driving to Martinborough, 15 minutes to Greytown and 10 minutes to Carterton.

Dogs may be welcome on agreement with the owner and must hold up to date vaccination and worming certificates.

Special conditions: RiverView is a working farm and therefore guests are asked to ensure that all gates are closed and no stock is disturbed. Dogs may be able to stay with guests (an outside kennel is on site) however this is only by prior arrangement with owner. There is a river boundary (great shallow river swimming and Trout fishing) and a small irrigation lake on the farm. Children must be well supervised at all times.

    Love this farmhouse and can't wait to return. Stunning location with all the big ticks. Comfortable, spacious, views, fireplace, spot for marshmallow toasting, books, trampoline and river. A bach that you wish was your own.

  • We have now rented this property twice and will definitely be coming...

    We have now rented this property twice and will definitely be coming back. The views over the valley are awesome, there is easily enough room for two families, and our kids loved riding their bikes around the paddocks and playing on the trampoline. We were even lucky enough to bottle-feed some newborn lambs and feed the alpacas.
