Birds Eye View is a cosy bach set above the Estuary of the Little Wanganui river, with great views of the estuary, the sea and the surf. Nestled in a lush subtropical garden setting, the bach offers a delicious combination of seclusion, tranquility and view. Views are framed with giant tree ferns, Nikau palms and Banana palms. Weka prowl the north facing sloping garden and Tui and bellbird serenade through the day. There is easy access to the river for kayaking, canoeing, boating and fishing. Whitebaiting is popular in the spring and locals walk to the rocky point to gather green lipped mussels when the tide is low or to fish for snapper in the summer. Walk to the estuary with paddles in hand and launch our canoe, stashed on the edge of the estuary under a large Kowhai tree. Paddle several kilometers up the estuary fishing for trout and Kahawai or just explore!

Locally in the Karamea region there are outstanding beaches, rivers galore, fantastic walking and lots of local flavor. Little Wanganui river mouth is the best surf spot in the region and at high tide the river mouth offers the best access to the sea for boating on this part of the west coast, weather permitting.
