Overview

Photos and Description of this Richmond holiday cottage

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

Karaka is a 2 bedroom self-contained cottage situated on the shore of the beautiful Waimea Estuary. The renovated 1950?s cottage accommodates up to 4 people. It has an open-plan living space with large windows, wonderful views, and a fully-equipped kitchen. The master bedroom has a king size bed, the second bedroom has two single beds. The bathroom has a large tiled shower, and opens to a deck with an outdoor bath. The bath is beautiful in the morning with the sun streaming through the trees, amazing on a clear night looking at the stars.

There are places to sit outside and catch the sunshine whatever time of day, and a choice of tables for dining al fresco. A large covered verandah and a private garden lead to the estuary shore.

The Nelson/Tasman region has endless choices for day trips to wineries, markets, galleries, and artists? studios. There is a wide range of outdoor pursuits to choose from, including hiking, cycling, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing, and fishing. We are just 2 km from the Great Taste Tasman Cycle Trail. There are also many beautiful rivers and beaches for swimming and picnicking. Canyoning, caving, kite boarding, and sky diving are options for the adventurous.

Should you prefer to stay in and relax, the cottage is perfectly equipped for the simple pleasures of a real kiwi bach holiday with good books, board games, barbecue, brazier, hammock, and endless views to gaze at. On a full tide you can explore the quiet estuary by kayak or paddle board. The cottage has a woodburner and is very cosy in winter.

There is good cellphone coverage and free Wifi for those who want to stay in touch with the outside world.

Matahua Cottages cater to adults and children aged 12 years and older.

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. 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.
