  • No wifi / TV / phone - perfect for relaxation
  • Five minutes walk to the beach - view it from beside the open fire
  • Bar, board games, back yard, or more of South Otago on your doorstep

This great getaway destination is ideal if you want to drink your morning coffee while watching the sun rise above the ocean, read a book in front of the cosy fire, share a drink or two in your own snug little bar, or stroll along the beach and collect shells - maybe even spot a seal or two!

We do warn you that this escape does not have TV, wifi, or even cell phone coverage or land line, but if this sounds like heaven to you then your search stops here.

A converted cottage which covers the basics but wouldnt dare to be labelled ''luxe'', it is perfect for families, groups of friends looking for a unique catch up destination and couples wanting a slow paced escape.

Situated in the small sleepy village of Toko Mouth, the location is far enough away from towns to be called a relaxing escape, but close enough to the drawcards of the lower South Island to offer some fantastic day trips. Take a coastal drive to the Catlins or Kaka Point, head to Dunedin for some more city flavours or just down the road to the Wangaloa golf course.

  • A terrific Ripetta and location

    A terrific Ripetta and location. Kids loved the sleep out, and it was only a short walk to the estuary for swimming.

    Has no TV or internet or cell coverage which was the highlight for me. Cribs quirky design means you have space to relax in all weather and beach is 5 minute walk away. For truly relaxing stay I highly recommend

  • What a great wee spot

    What a great wee spot. Very clean and tidy crib with lovely sheets on the beds. What a great view from the lounge window of the river mouth and out to sea. Perfect spot to read a book and watch the day pass by. Loved that there was cell coverage and no tv, a true holiday spot!
