Overview

Photos and Description of this Waikouaiti holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Blueskin Lodge has been tastefully refurbished and given a 'lodge' feel with local timbers and craftsmanship. Set at the upper end of its acre section it enjoys the most amazing northerly views over the bay and the Silver Peaks range beyond. Weather and tide provide an ever changing picture. Its position behind the bay's hilly backdrop shelters it from cold southerlies whenever they decide to blow therefore providing the area with a more favourable climate. Blueskin Bay beach is surrounded by our own protected reserve - future-proofed protection for this spectacular area. Even the acre plots on which the houses are set cannot be subdivided.

Waitati township (pop approx 250) is 3km back toward SH1 around the bay road and has a library and local shop for basic provisions. There are tennis courts and children's play area on Bland Park. On the first Sunday of every month there's a fun Sunday Market - more of a social event, but bargains can be had! Local produce and collectables and junk! There are numerous walks along the beaches and local tracks and the many rural walks inland. The famous Orokonui Sanctuary is just 8 minutes drive away on the back road to Port Charmers.

Why not take a flying visit via Google Earth to 218 Doctors Point Road Waitati NZ and you can see much of the surrounding area?

It really is a beautiful place to stay.

Extras: Linen (included); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Lovely and quiet.

Lovely and quiet. Felt like you were far away from the hustle and bustle but in fact only 15 mins into Dunedin city. Very nice and comfortable property.

Our wider family gathered here.

  • 4 of 5

Our wider family gathered here. We had 8 tall adults, but with 3 couches in the living area, along with a dining table and chairs, we didn't feel crowded.

2 minutes walk to the beach, which is safe for swimming.

Quiet, private setting, and very comfortable. We wouldn't hesitate to go here again.
