The Caboose is a handcrafted replica of an old train carriage, with a private garden. Set on a property with a historic farmhouse, only a 5 minutes drive from the beach and Takaka township. Great for both summer and winter with a pot belly making it cosy on the colder nights and an outside bath for a romantic soak under the stars.

We loved the caboose and the outside bathroom. However we were surprised at how close the owners house was to the caboose, as we had expected the caboose to be more private.

  • 5 of 5

The property is inbetween Takaka on the way to Pohara and is about five minutes drive to either place, just off the main road.

The caboose is ablsolutely stunning, quirky and cute. There has been love and care put into creating an unique little spot.

I went with my 16 year old daughter and we both loved taking turns in the outdoor bath, outdoor rainwater shower and hammock. There was a little table ideally situated for me to reach for a wine glass as I gazed at the stars. Absolutely stunning

We loved the simplicity and quirkiness of the Caboose. Staying at the Caboose made our stay in Pohara very memorable. We loved the outside bath and shower and wouldn't hesitate to return.
