About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

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. Wander around our very special five acres and choose your favourite quiet spot to read or snooze or have a picnic. The well equipped kitchen is great for making the most of the fabulous fresh produce the Nelson region has to offer.

Good cellphone coverage and free Wifi.

We cater to adults and children aged 12 years and older.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);

A special little house in a truly lovely spot, no glitz, just classy comfort and a spectacular view.

A special little house in a truly lovely spot, no glitz, just classy comfort and a spectacular view. Great for the kids to roam around (trees laden with apples when we were there), and nice kayaking on the estuary (although probably not so good for swimming). You won't go wrong here.

Loved the place - both the cottage which was very comfortable and had everything that you'd want.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place - both the cottage which was very comfortable and had everything that you'd want. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was great. Lots of places to sit outside and the views are wonderful. Great location - away from it all and private but close enough to civilisation so that you didn't feel isolated. Absolutely loved it and would go back there again.
