Bach or holiday home | Invercargill City | #8496
Just ten minutes drive from the centre of Invercargill, our crib is a cosy renovated 1930’s cottage with beachside charm, part of a small settlement nestled in the sandhills of Oreti Beach on the shore of Foveaux Strait. City events are so close, yet the atmosphere is quiet and isolated. A view of bushy Stewart island and sandhills graces the kitchen and the sound of the surf will whoosh you off to sleep at night.
A short walk through the sand hills takes you right on to the beach, which broadens to a huge expanse of flat sand at low tide, stretching for miles around to Riverton. It’s great mountain biking, just walking, beachcombing or even driving your car. The surf is enjoyed by surfers, swimmers, paddlers, kite surfers and windsurfers. Good Otatara cafes and bars (Ziffs, Sticky Beaks and The Cabbage Tree) are handy, as is Otatara Golf Course and particularly close, a golfer's gem; Oreti Sands 18-hole golf links (southernmost links course on the planet). The Bluff Oyster festival in May offers great food and music, or try the Burt Munro Challenge (November) for unique motorbike races . If you're in travel mode, the Coronet Peak and Remarkables skifields, lakes, adventure activities and stunning scenery of Fiordland National Park, Te Anau and Queenstown are only 2 hours drive away, flights to beautiful Rakiura / Stewart Island leave from the local airport and you are right on the "Southern Scenic Route" if touring the lovely South Coast and Catlins. Less energetically, you might just prefer to watch the sun set into the ocean from the sandhill seat or relax by the woodburner with a hot cuppa and a good book!
Accommodates four comfortably but can sleep extras on fold out beds in the living room.
Winter time; longer term rental deals negotiable, please enquire.
