About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 14)

Historic 100 year old house right on the estuary. Formerly the home of the fishing station manager, servicing Sea Cliff asylum.

Right on the estuary at Karitane. You couldn't get any closer to the water's edge!

The estuary provides a safe tidal swimming area for you and your family. Bring your fishing rods and come and play. We have kayaks for you to use. At low tide, enjoy hunting for crabs with the kids or dig for cockles for your dinner. You might see Harold, the resident sea lion in Karitane Harbour.

Put your feet up with a book and a cold drink on the deck while your BBQ lunch is cooking.

Fancy a short walk to Karitane Beach? Enjoy swimming or surfing at the beach. Ride a push bike along Karitane beach at low tide to the rock pools at the southern end. (2 adult bikes and 2 kids bikes supplied). Walk to the blow holes at the northern end of the beach.

The local shop is only a brief walk and stocks all of your essentials.

Karitane is only 35km north from Dunedin.

Special conditions:

Outside dogs allowed with prior approval

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$50.00 per stay); Linen (included);

An authentic kiwi experience .

  • 4 of 5

An authentic kiwi experience . The quaint stain glass windows, a view out every window, a warm fire, piles of wood to burn, a stack of kids games, cupboards full of plates, glasses etc. bikes, modern life jackets and wet suits for all sizes, books, DVD's comfy blankets, gumboots; I could go on and on. But the best thing is the location. As soon as the tide was in - all the kids jumped in kayac's and took off. The sleep out great for noisy kids. Fabulous kiwi holiday! Close to coast road! Awesome

The Pink Pipi is a really cosy house in a fantastic location right on the estuary.

  • 4 of 5

The Pink Pipi is a really cosy house in a fantastic location right on the estuary. Kids loved playing in the sand collecting pippies during low tide. The house is well stocked with games and toys as well. Just a short drive to the closest town for food places. A really pleasant stay.
