Karaka is a stylishly renovated 1950’s apple pickers’ cottage. A large covered verandah and private garden lead to the estuary shore. We have two paddle boards and kayaks which guests are free to use. The outdoor bath is beautiful in the morning with the sun streaming through the trees, amazing on a clear night looking at the stars.
This is a perfect place to come back to after a day exploring the Nelson region. It is also a perfect place to simply enjoy the pleasures of a bach holiday with good books, board games, barbecue, hammock, and endless views to gaze at.
