A selection of herbal teas and quality fresh plunger coffee are included as well as milk and a variety of spreads.

Whilst our cosy wee hut only has a queen size bed, we are happy for you to use your own small tent outside on the lawn if you are travelling with children. Also there is room next to the bed for a port-a-cot if you are travelling with a little one (we can have a port-a-cot onsite with enough notice).

We have recently installed a heat pump so the Hut is super cosy!

The area:

Situated on the south coast of Southland, Riverton (also known as Aparima) is an eclectic and quirky town surrounded by stunning natural beauty and home to lovely locally owned cafes.

Riverton spans Jacob's River Estuary; and is a picturesque location framed by the vast, sweeping coastline.

Riverton's surrounding beaches and estuary are popular with swimmers, kayakers, surfers and families. Dolphins often travel up into the estaury for feeding and can be seen from the beaches.

Nearby Colac Bay (and other secret locations) are top spots for surfing. The Long Hilly Track starts just after this bay, exploring regenerating native bush and relics from the days of early Chinese goldmining in Southland.

Riverton is also on the Southern Scenic Route and is an ideal stopover between Queenstown and Dunedin. Riverton is located 30km from Invercargill.

Special conditions: * No shoes inside please, use the gumboots provided to get you to the outside bathroom! * Please be respectful and leave our hut as you found it * Please open windows when cooking so that the hut doesn't absorb cooking smells * An early checkin may be available, just check with us
