Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

India House is a rustic, charming 3 bedroom stand-alone cottage, located in the grounds of the Ica Homestead at Whareama, close to the beach resort of Riversdale. Situated at the end of a ?no exit? road, simply enjoy the peace and quiet of an early settler cottage, steeped in history, in the beautiful countryside setting of Ica Station.

Originallybuilt in 1866, today ?India House? offers our visitors comfortable, clean, rustic accommodation and a location with interesting early NZ rural character. The cottage is quaint and still enjoys many of its original features. It has 3 small bedrooms (a queen and two twin rooms), a living room, small dining kitchen and inside bathroom with flushing toilet. With uninterrupted views over a small lake and beautiful countryside, here you can relax, read a book, have a glass of wine and listen to the birds in the peaceful and extremely private setting of this cottage. All our guests have use of a swimming pool and spa pool at the main Homestead during their stay!

With Riversdale and Otahome Beaches only 15 mins drive away and Castlepoint Beach 35 mins in the opposite direction, this bach is an ideal base for surfers, fishermen, golfers, couples or groups of friends 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, a local store for food and basic groceries, Tennis Courts, Swimming, Fishing, Surfing, Walking, Diving and Boating.

Quiet and peaceful location and a very cute cottage. Loved the gardens, the old homestead and the history of the place. Great spa - would love to come back in the summer when the pool is in action :)

Very cosy & comfortable accommodation with stunning surroundings. Loved the fact it was originally a pioneer house from the 1860's!
