Our historic crib at Karitane was one of the village’s original cottages, occupied by the boat builder for the Karitane fishing fleet. The property has recently been completely rebuilt and has now been furnished with comfort and style, featuring the owner’s lifelong collection of retro furniture and household effects. Summer guests can enjoy being a pleasant 5 minute walk from beautiful Karitane beach, renowned for great swimming and surfing, or amble across the road and put the canoe in the water then return to enjoy a BBQ on the deck and some back yard cricket on the ¼ acre lawn. In the winter the crib is warm and cosy; stay inside in front of the fire and enjoy the view, watch movies, and only leave the house if you want to avail yourself of the superb coffee or weekend takeaways on the menu at the well-stocked Karitane store. NZ famous Evansdale Cheese factory is a 5 minute drive away, now joined by Matakana Meats, while a slightly longer drive along the stunning Otago coast can take you to world famous Fleurs at Moerkai or to award winning Riverstone Kitchen for dinner or a leisurely Sunday brunch.

Special conditions: * The crib is not a characterless rental; it is our holiday home and as such it contains many of our precious personal possessions. We ask our guests to enjoy all the facilities and contents that the crib has to offer, but to also respect and take care of our stuff. * The crib is best suited to couples, up to a maximum of 4 people. * No small children, smokers or pets please.
