    The drive to Dunedin was 30mins on the main highway, which we found a bit too far to just pop in and out. The views were amazing. Great to have access to the beach..would recommend avoiding high tide if you want to walk along. The property was quiet, spacious, private and well stocked and the towels and sheets being supplied was a bonus. Would have loved to read about the history of the house, but sadly there was no information available.

    It was not far from Dunedin or Moeraki - and we could easily walk/bike into karitane. we did need a boat (which was left at home) to do any fishing. still had plenty to do with the lovely walks - would definitely go back. Great place to stay fantastic views of karitane and the beach.

    Very large, characterful house with lots of grounds. Really amazing views and the track down to the beach is perfect. Well stocked house so a comfortable stay.
