A stylish kiwi batch in a magic setting.

Relax surrounded by endless sea, sky and green pastures with the odd passing train, ship, boat, bird or sheep and the world stretched out in front of you. This is a place to put your feet up, tune into nature and experience the best of what New Zealand has to offer.

We want to share what we feel is an unplifting, unique and special place and hope that you will feel the same.

Please note that I stay and manage the property from the self contained unit seen above the house in the third picture. I keep away from the main house and most guests will never see me as the unit faces away from the sea but I am available to help on request if you text me first.

If you are looking for a truly kiwi experience, this is it.

Special conditions:

Please keep off the surrounding paddocks, particularly during lambing.

  • an inviting well maintained home

    an inviting well maintained home. fab! location and views. welcoming host/owner, helpful with info re tips on where to visit in the wider area. Excellent private location to enjoy a relaxing time if desired. Also well situated for visits around the wider area. Don't miss a visit to Blue Skin Bay - we MUCH liked it. The hot tub was so very much enjoyed every single day. We'd love to come back one day - maybe without the kids :p Thank you for having us and allowing an addition guest Glenn. You did a great job with your property. ! Wishing you well.

    As a group of four (two couples), this home was everything we needed for a relaxing break over the New Year period. The house layout is great, with the bedrooms at opposite ends and a large living and dining area in the centre. We spent most of our week here lounging on the beanbags inside or on the deck, enjoying the stunning views out to sea and across the peninsula. Glenn was incredibly helpful and friendly. We arrived while he was out and got settled in, but he came over once home and showed us around the property. He also gave us tips on where to go in the area which came in handy when we did venture out. He was always happy to help out when we needed anything, and was very respectful of our privacy during our stay. The home was well equipped for cooking meals, and there was a bookshelf for those needing something to read. Both bedrooms were a good size, with beautiful views out to the water and direct access to the deck. Sitting out on the deck or grass in the early morning was

    We absolutely loved our stay in Karitane, the house is beautiful and in a spectacular location. Waking up, having breakfast on the outside deck and just listening to the bellbirds outside, absolutely idyllic. Glenn has thought of everything in the house, there’s USB chargers and even tv shows available on the Sky on demand, if you can take your eyes off the view outside! Thank you Glenn for sharing such a special place, we’d love to come and stay again sometime.

    Glenn was a great host, gave us lots of good information on the area and made sure we were comfortably settled in. It was unfortunately rained out during our stay there but the hot tub made things heaps better.
