Your hosts Hugh, Donna, Wee Angus live in the Wairarapa where we love the quietness and beauty of the area but also the accessibility to town/city. We enjoy the outdoors, wholesome food, good movies, sport and being self reliant. We love guests who laugh, relax and treat life as a big adventure not to be taken too seriously.

Kakariki is situated in a beautiful tranquil bush setting on the Waiohine River. An ideal setting for enjoying outdoor adventures, quiet reading or just taking in the abundant bird life and stunning views.

Kakariki has it's own outdoor flush toilet and shower, small kitchenette with tea and coffee, bar fridge with freeze box, (there is no toaster) queen size bed, fire box, cd player/radio, dining table with linen and towels provided. A BBQ is available as well as an outdoor table/chairs and deck.

We are on alternative energy (240v) in the main house, but the cabin is powered only by a 12 v system and therefore unsuitable for electrical appliances. You can access power from the main house for charging electronic devices etc.The land provides forest walks and kayaks with gear available.

We are happy to help with transport from either Greytown, Carterton or Matarawa Railway Station. Your stay can be completely independent or we can help knowledge of the area and things to do. We are 5 kilometres from Matarawa Railway Station, (pick up can be arranged) 10 kilometres from Greytown and a pleasant drive to Martinborough for vineyards, cafes, and restaurants. There is no public transport to the house. We are an hours drive from Wellington if you're keen to escape the big city.

Special conditions: We have bee hives on the property. A BBQ is available as well as a gas ring in the cabin. Kakariki is not set up for cooking of meals but this can be done if necessary in the owners house. Dishes requiring more than a rinse can also be done at the owners house.
