  • Access to north side of Rakaia river mouth. Long walk possibly
  • Full sun and plenty of walks and fresh air! Tranquil place to get away from it all.
  • Be fishing on the river in next to no time. Trout, salmon, whitebait or just enjoy the nature.

Welcome to Dunnabridge at Rakaia Huts.

The only rental accommodation at the Huts on the North side of the river.

A family bach with all the facilities you will need for a fishing trip or just a weekend away for some peace and quiet.

Plenty of places to sit in the sun to enjoy a book. Walks in any direction.

If fishing is your thing then you have easy access to the Rakaia River.

Try for a Salmon, Trout or Whitebait (in season)

Not into fishing. No problem. Enjoy peace and quiet to do your own thing, walk, read, sit in the sun.

Bring the kids as plenty of entertainment. Great selection of board games, jigsaws, DVD's or playstation. No option of getting bored.

Would recommend sturdy walking shoes for trips along the beach. It can be a long walk to the river mouth so easiest access option is four wheel motorbike.

Boat ramp is public facility at lagoon.

Very limited connectivity for internet and phone. There is as long as you stand in the right spot.

Special conditions: Queen bed will unzip to create two singles. Plenty of blankets for extra warmth if required. Plenty of firewood supplied for pot belly. Kitchen consumables supplied (Tea, coffee, sugar), some basic pantry items plus cleaning products.
