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 over the winter months 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. Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

    The property is in a gorgeous location. Views are spectacular. Private. Handy to Southland sightseeing. The house is well appointed and cosy. Very comfortable and clean.

  • This is a fantastic property to stay in

    This is a fantastic property to stay in. It is a fabulous location with stunning sea (and star) views and feels very private, but with the convenience of being just a short drive from the city. It was spotless and was very comfortable. I thoroughly recommend staying here, we would love to return one day!

  • We loved this two bedroom 'couples retreat' in Karitane

    We loved this two bedroom 'couples retreat' in Karitane. It's slightly out of the way but not hard to find and has complete privacy with a magical cliff top view! It's been well converted and was warm and cosy in cold temperatures. Double glazing is enhanced by a heat pump and logburner. The bed was comfy and heated up very quickly. The bathroom was spacious and the tucked away washing machine was very handy. There's even a spa pool on the deck with an incredible view.
