Riversdale House Rental Photos and Description

Homestay, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Ica Station 'Whare' offers our visitors comfortable, clean, rustic accommodation in a location with interesting early NZ rural character. Situated at the end of a 'no exit' road, simply enjoy the peace and quiet of an early settler 'Whare', in the beautiful country side setting of Ica Station Homestead and grounds.

The unit has a queen bedroom, a living/dining area, kitchenette and inside shower room with flushing toilet. With views over the garden, here you can relax, read a book, have a glass of wine and listen to the birds in the peaceful setting of the unit. Next door is the main homestead with B and B accommodation where all our guests have use of the swimming pool and spa pool during their stay.

We also offer the use of our stables and equestrian arena, if you'd like to bring your horse on holiday with you - please email for more details and price.

With Riversdale and Otahome Beaches only 15 minutes drive away and the Castlepoint Beach 35 minutes in the opposite direction, this bach is an ideal base for couples to explore the East Coast of the Wairarapa!

There's plenty to see and do in the area. Nearby Riversdale and Castlepoint offer superb Golf Courses, Tennis Courts, Swimming, Fishing, Surfing, Walking, Diving and Boating, plus local store. Or Otahome, where you often have the beach to yourselves. Whareama has a Boat Ramp and small Church (5 mins).

Lovely and peaceful spot.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely and peaceful spot. Not much close by, so fantastic if you just want to relax. Gardens are really nice and the spa and pool are awesome. Come prepared if you don't want to go far for food - we came over Easter and didn't really factor that in. The cottage is lovely and has everything you need. Hosts are friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed our relaxed last weekend away together before baby arrives here :)

Charming, rustic, clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Charming, rustic, clean, comfortable and well-equipped cottage. Super comfortable bed. Ica station itself is a fabulous, restful, but not remote place to stay, set in superb countryside. Ample quiet walkies on the farm tracks around the station. We were also surprised and delighted to see green "dogs allowed signs" at nearby Riversdale Beach - i.e. dogs allowed in daylight hours, in summer! *The homestead B&B would also be an awesome property for non-dog owners
