Amazing 1 bedroom off the grid tiny home.Yes it on wheels all solar powered bathroom has shower sink with state of art composting toilet.The kitchen has a kettle microwave and single hot plate and small fridge.BBQ available.But the award winning Orepuki Cafe is 2 mins walk away and so is the pub which between the two covers can all your requirements.Great sea views across the bay and to Hump Ridge Track.Surf,dive,fish and dolphins romantic weekend away or staging post before doing the track.
The room comes with your own bathroom ensuite.Tea coffee making facilities.Limited cooking facilities a microwave and kettle.
Great spot close to everything with amazing views.You can walk to Gem stone beach and Monkey Island
  • The views to the ocean from the deck or bed are unbeatable. The tiny house is glass-enclosed so you can open fully to the outdoors, with sliding doors on all sides, plus windows, yet very private. Cutest kitchen with the basic essentials. But Andy speaks truth -- why cook when you can have one of the best meals in NZ at the Orepuki Beach Cafe (check their hours) - when we stayed they were open for dinner Fri & Sat only so missed that chance, but their breakfast, lunch and baked goods are amazing. The Cafe alone would be a reason to stay in Orepuki or nearby.

  • I booked this for my elderly mother and she loved it - very clean and comfortable and Corrina went the extra mile to make sure it was nice and warm when she arrived late at night. Orepuki is a wee place that most people overlook but it is surrounded by beautiful scenery, historic places and wonderful wild southern beaches - and there’s great local food too.

    Rose2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place close to Gemstone Beach, had good heating, toys, kitchen facilities. We enjoyed the area.

    Hannah2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Had a cosy, clean, quiet and relaxing stay at this wee gem of a bach. Nice and close to nearby scenic areas and other towns, the local cafe/resturaunt is just a few hundred metres up the road and you can hear the crashing waves of Gemstone Beach behind you. Definitely recommend to others!

    Iowna is a completely separate apartment under the main house. It is of a very high standard expected of 4-5 star hotel and safe parking. Just a two minute walk down to the beachand a great local pub just around the corner. It is very private, sunny and warm. Iowna has a small kitchenette equipped with the basics. There is plenty of free wifi. Iowna is suitable for couples or solo's. Can supply breakfast or dinner by prior arrangement for an extra charge, with an advance booking only.
    You have one large room and an adjoining ensuite bathroom. The kitchenette in the main room is equipped with cutlery and china, Microwave, kettle, toaster, tea and coffee. A small dining table and chairs and an extra armchair inside and outdoor furniture for the summer complete the picture.
    We only have around 70 to 80 permanent residents in Colac Bay so its a very peaceful haven. There is a small store at the local tavern where you can buy essentials, but the nearest supermarket is 10klm away in Riverton. Good bistro meals at local tavern and several other eating options around the area which I have detailed on your information sheet in the room. Great walks around the area
  • Comfort and privacy

    Lyn2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful studio with quality fittings, comfy bed and beautiful linens. Stylish and private with a great modern bathroom. Superbly presented and spotlessly clean.

    Domino2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Janice's wee place is far from being a dump. It's like the tardis - tiny on the outside but absolutely everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) you need inside. Perfect for before/after tramping 'The Hump'! Plus exceptional kiwi hospitality!

    Tuatapere, Southland, New Zealand

    We are located at the south coast of New Zealand, 10km's from Tuatapere. The Waiau river flows right behind the house, perfect for fishing or enjoying a walk on the beach. The Hump Ridge Track is a short drive away. Your house is cosy, warm and light and has lots of character. There's only a few houses down here, so a perfect place to relax! We live next door and are happy to show you around.
    Your house has a television and we also provide internet access, but being rural it won't be as fast as you might be used to. We got heaps of parking space right outside your door.
    The Waiau River runs past our back boundary, with the beach and ocean only a short walk away. The Hump Ridge Track is just around the corner and Tuatapere has shops, cafe's, pub and petrol stations.

    A Budget (own sleeping bag) wilderness style hut within an Art Gallery on the southern edge of World Heritage Wilderness Area Fiordland National Park. Nzs newest Great Walk the Hump Ridge Track starts here. Bars, cafes and take-aways are only 1 minutes walk. Within an easy half days travel of NZs premier tourist attractions. We have NO KITCHEN facilities available and ask that you dont cook in our space-Please use the local cafe's/shops, it helps our town survive!
    A bunkroom modelled after a wilderness hut so iconic in NZs back Country. The bathroom in a separate building a few meters away adds to the authenticity of the experience. A cosy lounge just for guests and your own entrance to come and go as you please. The room is inside an art gallery run by your hosts and provides a very inspirational and quiet space. The bunkroom is run like the backcountry hut it is modelled after so YOU NEED TO PROVIDE YOUR OWN SLEEPING BAG/ BEDDING. There is NO KITCHEN OR COOKING facilities just plenty of local eating places nearby. Just imagine you are in a hut in the wilderness but that you have a hot shower and flush toilet and you will know what you are getting. The room is yours when you book whether you are 1 or 4. You dont share it with anyone other than your own group. Ideal for those who are looking for budget accommodation before heading off on a hiking adventure in southern Fiordland. I have written a guide book for hiking in the area and it is available to guests. I am also able to answer all your questions about getting out into our wonderful wilderness.
    Tuatapere is a small self reliant town with beautiful walkways, rivers, coast and mountains all around. You can walk from one end to the other in 5 minutes and yet still be discovering hidden treasures 5 years later. We have many great food outlets, a supermarket, doctor, school, 24hr fuel and full mechanical service workshops. Live music is often playing at one of the pubs/cafes. Tuatapere is the gateway to Fiordland National Park southern region and the famous Hump Ridge Track which is owned by the people of Tuatapere. There are many adventures to be had outdoors-please ask Greg about where and how.
  • Really nice place! Clean and convenient. More than that, it was a pleasure to talk to Greg and learn about the local outdoors and have a look at the unique art in the gallery!

  • Greg's "hut" offers space to rest, sunny seats to read and make notes, and plan your adventures. Greg offers great tips on kea spotting sites and off-the-heavily-beaten track tramping based on his personal experience (and his published guide book). The Cwtch's location is perfect for someone seeking to enjoy the southern Southerns Alps without the crowds. A genuine small town "gateway" to great places.

    Our cosy and cute self contained hut is peacefully tucked away amongst farmland and is just a 15min walk to the beach. A highlight of our property is unwinding in the outdoor bath underneath the stars! Our hut is an ideal location for a stopover on the stunning Southern Scenic Route.
    This is a romantic cosy private hide away. Clean & tidy self contained Hut on a large 1/4 acre section with native planted gardens. Studio Layout. Queen bed, lounge, kitchenette. The hut size is 8m x 3m Shower & toilet are accessed via the deck The deck is a great space for sunbathing, meditation, yoga & outdoor dinning. Outdoor Bath - relax & unwind in the outdoor bath under the stars = bliss (there is hot water running to the bath). A great Hut near the coast, private and peaceful, nice but casual & a little bit special. Kitchen basics. Mini oven, hotplate, fridge, kettle & toaster. Bedding and towels are provided. A selection of herbal teas and quality fresh plunger coffee are included as well as milk and a variety of spreads, sauces, oils and condiments. Whilst our cosy wee hut only has a queen size bed, we are happy for you to use your own small tent outside on the lawn if you are travelling with children. Also there is room next to the bed for a port-a-cot if you are travelling with a little one (we have a port-a-cot available on-site, just bring your own bedding for this). Please note: the section is not fully fenced (in regards to dogs and small children). There is an area behind the toilet where the neighbours fence is just 1 electric fence across; not a full fence.
    Situated on the south coast of Southland, Riverton (also known as Aparima) is an eclectic and quirky town surrounded by stunning natural beauty and home to lovely locally owned cafes. Riverton spans Jacob's River Estuary; and is a picturesque location framed by the vast, sweeping coastline. Riverton's surrounding beaches and estuary are popular with swimmers, kayakers, surfers and families. Dolphins often travel up into the estaury for feeding and can be seen from the beaches. Nearby Colac Bay (and other secret locations) are top spots for surfing. The Long Hilly Track starts just after this bay, exploring regenerating native bush and relics from the days of early Chinese goldmining in Southland. Riverton is also on the Southern Scenic Route and is an ideal stopover between Queenstown and Dunedin. Riverton is located 30km from Invercargill.
  • We loved staying at this lovely cottage - the outside bath is a real luxury and the clear nights made star gazing spectacular. Would definitely recommend this for a stay in Riverton.

  • You will not be disappointed in choosing to spend your time in this lovely place! It is your very own sanctuary, private and cozy. The garden and outdoor area is amazing and the closest neighbor is quite friendly (emphasis on neigh, if you catch my drift). Thoughtful touches like the, robes and cookies, made it extra special. We were pleasantly surprised by town of Riverton. We didn’t know what to expect, but it’s a great place to spend a few days! Artsy, cute cafes, beautiful beaches, and an informative museum.

    Hali2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

The beach is only a couple of minutes walk from our house and is well known for its calm and sheltered conditions.

Call Jess at Southland Surf School (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) for lessons and board hire. A fun childrens playground is just down the street as well and a community BBQ, that is free to use, is at the old soundshell site next to the playground. The BBQ is gas operated and ready to go at the push of a button. Food options are plentiful in Riverton.

Postmaster cafe in town does great coffee and plenty of food to choose from. The Aparima tavern does delicious food with cold beer and a fantastic view out over the estuary.

The Riverton museum has some amazing artifacts and is a great place to learn of the history of Riverton and the surrounding region.

    Our house is modern and situated on a private, landscaped lifestyle block in Riverton that backs onto the native bush reserve with spectacular views of Taramea Bay and the Southland Plains. Visitors always comment on the views and wake up to birdsong. The room you will stay in has a full ensuite, luggage storage and private entrance. We offer a delicious breakfast for an additional fee, choices include homemade and gluten-free options, let us know 24 hours before your visit.
    We bought this 20 acre lifestyle block in 2000. The house was built so we had views of the sea, mountains and plains as well as all day sun. We enjoy the privacy and peacefulness of this place. Listening and watching the birds from the native bush nearby provides many tranquil moments.
    Riverton is a small seaside town with a variety of beaches to explore, Jacobs River estuary and a bush reserve nearby. The beaches and estuary are popular with swimmers, kayakers, surfers, walkers and for family fun. There are a number of bush and coastal walks nearby. Our climate is temperate and changeable with the warmest weather from December to March.
  • An excellent place to stay on the Riverton peninsula. Our room had its own access, en suite and seating area immediately outside the bedroom, with panoramic views. The breakfast set us up for the day , toast, homemade muesli , fruit and yoghurt. We can definitely recommend this place.

    The Whimsical Studio is a light, spacious and private wee haven. Fully self-contained with a larger bathroom, awesome shower and a well equipped kitchen. Surrounded by nature with a beautiful outlook across the paddocks towards Taramea Bay & beyond. On the Kereru & Tuis flightpath, enjoy the cute courtyard while watching an array of birdlife. By night ☆stargazing☆ is easy with the wide open sky while listening to the creek, the sea, frogs & morepork. ♡
    My favorite things... ~ The noughts and crosses table. ~ The interactive world map guest book. ~ The views. ~ The bird life/song
    We are in a quiet private spot, with rural and sea views. Close to bush walks and the beach is only a 10 min walk. Right on the Te Araroa Trail.

  • Because we love the scenery on South Island Road, we chose to live here after we reached the end of Highway 1. The owner has a very large yard filled with carefully selected plants. The room is well equipped. The bed is very soft and comfortable, and the towels in the bathroom are very comfortable. Do n’t forget to use a small hot air blower to dry your body after taking a shower!

    Kevin2020-02-18T00:00:00Z

    A double bedroom in a cosy space in an art gallery set amidst quaint cottage gardens. Ideal for hikers and adventurers on their way to the Humpridge Track or one of Southern Fiordland's other wilderness wonders. Rustic, bespoke, upcyled and re-purposed applies to the building, furnishings and hosts. Basic but comfortable and clean. Outside bathroom, NO KITCHEN. Cafes, pubs and shops are very near by. While the room sleeps 2 the price covers 1 person. The second person stays free.
    Our place is a converted (in Progress) old hall where we have an art studio and gallery. The bathrooms are in a seperate building a few meters walk away and we have NO KITCHEN FACILITIES. There is off street parking and the shops and pubs/cafes are all just a minutes walk away. One of NZs Great Walks the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track starts here. Information about the many adventures this wild part of the country offers is freely available-just ask Greg. Please be aware that this is an old building undergoing a transformation. Our pricing reflects the limitations that we work within.
    Tuatapere is a small rural town that has wonderful safe walkways in beautiful bush settings. The Waiau river runs through it and the wild and beautiful south coast is just down the road. Tuatapere is the gateway to Southern Fiordland which has some of the most remote wilderness left anywhere in the world. We are also the start point for NZs newest Great Walk the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track. Whist many visit fiordland through the now crowded gateway of Te Anau Tuatapere offers the uncrowded, undiscovered Fiordland to those wanting to find true wilderness. There are many wonderful walks both on the coast and in the bush in this area and it remains one of Nzs least known unexplored scenic wonderlands. There is very little in the way of published material on this areas attractions but I have recently written a guidebook so ask me (while you stay) and I will tell you all the secrets.
  • Great value, Greg is a super neat friendly host.

    Julie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Greg’s house was an amazing experience. He went above and beyond to ensure that we had the best stay possible. When it didn’t stop raining all day he took us 4WDing through mountains and on the beach. The room is extremely cosy with lots of blankets to keep you warm. A kettle is also in the room for tea and coffee. Would highly recommend Greg’s place for a memorable trip!

    Josie2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Greg is an amazing host. Thank you for taking the time to show us around. Such a unique and special place to spend the night!

    Laura2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had very good time in Tuatapere! Greg’s place was clean and comfortable. It was nice to have a private shower and toilet room just for ourselves with this price! Greg has tons of recommendations and tips, and we enjoyed a lot of local sites such as Gem Stones Beach :) There’s no kitchen but there are a few great places to eat in the are, and we especially liked Opureki Beach Cafe and Last Light Lodge. The room had an electric kettle so we could have tea and coffee.

    Maxwell2019-12-31T00:00:00Z

    Siegfried2019-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Greg and Tammy are awesome people and lovely hosts. Greg was kind enough to allow us time in the art gallery outside of hours and it was a highlight for this area. We had plenty of our own space and privacy plus a comfy bed and even a little teapot. We loved the quiet town and the surrounding area too, Greg knows all the things to do to as well 🙂 We loved it here!

  • Barbara and her husband were very welcoming and accommodating. The space was just what we needed to take a break and relax a bit. Gorgeous area- we unfortunately had quite a bit of rain, so we didn’t get to take in much around the little community, but Barbara made great suggestions on places to grab some dinner and has a ton of local knowledge about surrounding hikes and walks if the weather had been better for us. Would highly recommend to anyone going through Riverton!

    We live in a uniquely renovated 90 year old home surrounded by trees and farmland with views towards the Longwood native bush range. Nothing but the sound of birdsong disturbs the tranquility. We offer a local knowledge of short walking tracks and seaside beaches.
    Our home is 10 minutes from the charming seaside port of Riverton with cafes and restaurants, great short walking tracks with bush and sea views. We are only an hour away from the start of the Hump Ridge walking track (an area we know extremely well) and one and a half hours to Lake Te Anau or Lake Hauroko.
  • The freedom and independence of a hotel with the comfort and atmosphere of a home, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we were welcome but left to come and go as we needed, it was perfect for what we needed!

    A classic kiwi batch ready and waiting to host your special family weekend away or a group of friends who are looking for a relaxing mini break. The perfect spot to sit and watch the world go.
    Welcome to Towack Street beach house. It ain't the Ritz but we promise you a 'Sweet as' 5 star Kiwi batch experience! This was a loved family holiday home now a bit flashed up in a style we are calling "Kiwi Coastal shabby chic" There are lots of special touches to make sure all our guests have a great stay and families are very welcome. The bathroom is not a highlight but you will be so entranced by the view you will not care. The beach views are amazing on a sunny day , moody and captivating when the weather turns too . We are locals and we love Riverton and this area - we will leave lots of info including our own slant and favorite things to do and see.

We loved it, the layout is clever and worked well and the views are truly fantastic: both on a gorgeous day and on one of those dramatic stormy days. Thank you Josie & team for a great long weekend stay. We could have easily stayed longer!

    Cosy, peaceful, modest cottage just 2 minutes walk from the beach at Taramea Bay. Sea views from sunroom and bedrooms. White walls, wooden floors, wooden venetian blinds. A great place to relax for a weekend or longer.
    Riverton weather can be changeable. If you hit a cold spell, the wood burner will warm the house up beautifully. Firewood is provided at no extra charge. There are plenty of books, DVDs and games too.
    You'll be staying in a quiet residential street consisting mainly of holiday homes, with super-easy access to the safe swimming beach at Taramea Bay and the Taramea Store (convenience store & takeaways) just a minute or two away. Easy walk to the popular Beach House cafe/restaurant and beyond that to views of Stewart Island.
  • Wonderful place, great stay

  • The property fully met our expectations. Check-in was smooth and straightforward. The property looks a bit run down due to peeling paint, which didn't really bother us. It was very clean and the equipment had everything you need!

    Amelie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in riverton. It was quite chilly so loved having the fire roaring !

  • Roy’s cottage is fabulous. Bonus that it pet friendly . It was great to get away with our furbaby. The cottage is so warm, cosy and inviting. It has a real home away from home feeling and it was well equipped with everything you could want. Location couldn’t be better!

    Modern child friendly four bedroom house with great disabled access and facilities. Located 5 minutes from the beach and good surfing spots. The view from the large deck entices you to relax and unwind. The facilities make this a home from home.
  • I had an amazing time at Stephan's place. the house is really clean and spacious. I loved use the kitchen and enjoy my meals with the beautiful view over the sea. I highly recommend the place.

    Claire2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The images on of the location do no justice. This is a top spot with excellent amenities and the place as a very good feel. If we return to Invercargill for any reason this is where we'll be staying. 6/5

    Bret2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Stefan has earned the right to be called a super-host because he was super whenever I contacted him with queries and changes. The house was amazing, comfortable and modern with extra special touches that made it perfect for a family. Thanks for a great stay.

    This cute 1920’s cottage has been restored to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay. Relax in front of a warm fire at the end of the day. This cottage is an easy walk to shops, hotel, cafes, wharf and supermarket. Only a short drive to some lovely beaches.
    Cute 1920’s cottage that is fully equipped and centrally located in Riverton
    Close to supermarket, all shops and harbour
  • Very cozy, flawless accommodation - a cute little cottage

    Martin2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great little cottage for you to relax in the beautiful town of Riverton. Fireplace was a bonus adding great ambience to the place.

    Alistair2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Small two bedroom cottage but has all amenities and centrally located. The superb Te Hikoi Museum is a 5 minute walk. It can be cool in the morning but there is a good wood burner and plenty of dry firewood.

    John2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Cute cottage close to town with a couple of restaurants. Definitely worth the money

    Zanders beach house is situated right at the end of the rocks highway out on a very quiet street where you have views of the ocean looking out from the front and side windows of the house. You can sit on the second story deck with uninterrupted views of the sea and walk down to the beach in a minute. There are 2 upstairs bedrooms, 1 queen and 1 king and down stairs leads into a large open room with a king bed and a room off that with 2 bunks so the house is great for 2 families.
    Guests can use the full house. The house has fantastic open plan living on to the upper deck. It’s a super safe area surrounded by reserve so is very well set up for kids of all ages. There is no TV in the living but there is a DVD player set up in the lower room. There is no Wifi at the house.
    This is a fantastic part of Riverton. It’s possibly one of the safest areas for kids and families. It’s one street back from the main room on a quiet no through road, with very little traffic. You might see 2 cars all day. The reserve in front of the house has swings for the kids and you can see them from the balcony. Henderson’s bay is 1 minute walk from the house down through the reserve. The neighbours are lovely and the street is warm and welcoming.
  • What an amazing place! Jenna's house is a real home from home as well as being in the perfect location. We didn't leave the whole time except to explore by foot and for ice cream 😁 I had a few really good runs along the beach to Riverton which is a very cute little place. Glad we stocked up with supplies at Invercargill. We had all sorts of weather and it was great throughout, completely recommend for a brilliant family stay. If we didn't liveon the other side of the world I could imagine booking again and again!

    Maddy2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place for a family get away. Really well set up for two families with kids, and in a great location close to the beach and to the reserve. Comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and the house layout worked really well for our group of 7. Would love to stay again!

    Sarah2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely relaxing sea views, immaculate presentation/cleanliness, awesomely decorated, and perfectly located a minute or two to the beach and many different walks. Jenna had the most wonderful communication and we couldn’t be more grateful to her for helping our family to have the perfect stay.

    Amanda2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place was so perfect and amazing!!! The place is big but cosy and the ultimate space to escape with friends for the weekend! If it’s sunny, you can enjoy an amazing deck with a bbq overlooking the ocean! Thanks so much Jenna! We can’t wait to plan our next trip already.

    Laura2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place to stay in Riverton! Great size for our group of 8, and really well set up for young kids. And cosy fire was really nice on a rainy day. Had a brilliant time!

    Clean tidy and respectful, modernised, warm & very comfortable style villa which backs onto the Waiau River a genuine raw peace of paradise, 1 hour drive to The Anau & 3 to Milford Sound a 2 minute walk to all conveniences. 10 minutes drive to the south coast, blue cliffs & the mouth of the Waiau river. 20 minutes drive to Colac bay for a surf or the start of the hump ridge track. Endless outdoor adventure activities with hunting & fishing at the doorstep. I have a dog named Storm (she's cute)
    Situated a short walk from the centre of Tuatapere the property overlooks the mighty Waiau River and beautiful snow-capped Fiordland mountains. The room & bathroom is newly renovated & warm providing a very comfortable standard of living. Tuatapere is situated on the Southern Scenic Route very close to all the attractions of the south coast, the Hump Ridge Track, Blue Cliffs, Clifton suspension bridge and caves, Colac Bay for a surf, Cosy Nook for a dive, withTe Anau & Milford Sound just up the road.
    Tuatapere is only 20 mins to the start of the Hump Ridge Track, 1 hour to Te Anau & 3 hrs to Milford Sound & is 1 of New Zealand's great little secrets with its own micro climate (better weather than the surrounding areas as it's protected by the snowcapped Fiordland mountains and the hills) & just a great spot for outside activities or relaxing in the beautiful surroundings!
  • The accommodation at Ian's is nice and uncomplicated, the house newly renovated with a wonderful view of the mountains. Good starting point for a trip to Milford Sound.

    Klaus2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located far from Invercargill, but on the way to Invercargill, there are very beautiful coastline islands, and the living environment is very quiet. The host was very happy to help us with travel suggestions.

    沙溦2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little place to stay, Ian was a very nice host, he’ll tell you all you need to know about the surroundings, and more ;) Storm (his dog) was so nice and cuddly, and always happy to see you :) Will recommence if you are passing by the area!

    Alec2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet and clean place for accommodation

    Rachel2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • You won't need internet at this place. Beautiful location with soo much opportunities with great company of Ian and Storm (dog) gives you more than internet :-). Really recommend for anyone who wants to relax and be close to the caves and Milfordsound. Thanks for staying..

    Freo2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome peaceful space. Newly renovated and very clean. Host has a wealth of knowledge and very friendly. His dog storm is also super cute.

    Nikita2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ian's place in Tuatapere is nice and cosy and very easily accessible to the humpridge trek office and carpark (20mins drive only). From his place you can drive along the South coast for endless views of the sea. Our room and bathroom was spacious and spotless! Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to stopover in this small town!

    Amanda Rachael2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Despite the cold weather we arrived at Ian's house which was warm, comfortable and tidy. It's a great short-stay option to access magnificent local hikes. Ian welcomed us despite our late arrival. Definitely recommend to stay here on your journey through the mighty South

  • When I booked the place I was looking for a nice place with ocean view, found Kathryn’s place, booked it and when I got there was amazed by how close to the beach it actually was! Exactly what I was looking for and so much more! Kathryn and Freddie both are super welcoming and friendly, Freddie even drove us to the local pub and made a booking for us. They are awesome people, the place is lovely and I can’t wait to be back! Privacy is no issue, everything was very tidy and the bed super comfy. I can absolutely recommend to stay here!

    Wanting accommodation that offers an experience rather than just a bed? The Surf Shak is perfect for people that have a sense of adventure and a love of the unique. Only a couple of minutes walk to the beach, most days you can hear the sea from bed. The Surf Shak is a separate sleep-out, with a number of its own amenities plus a bathroom shared in the main house. One double bed is situated on its own floor, looking out to the trees (access via ladder) or there is also a double pull out couch.
    The Shak has been decorated over time by Owner and resident artist Wayne of the Hill and various Surf Shak guests, just looking around will keep you entertained – we’d love you to add your own touch too. **If you're used to a life of luxury the Surf Shak may not be for you!
    Situated in a quiet street in our own lovely little Southern Paradise (don't tell too many people...). Riverton is one of Southland's real gems, a seaside fishing village with a strong arts and community vibe. The sea is our haven!
  • This place is amazing, but just so you know Charlotte is managing but not hosting, you’ll meet Wonderful Wayne on location ;) this is not your typical BnB so be prepared for a bit of lovely strange atmosphere ! Full of good surfer and oceanic vibes, perfect spot to disconnect, relax, make art and live in a parallel timeline. We loved it, but it might not be for everyone!

    Romain2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Had a grate stay. Nice quiet location

    Mathew2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Waynes Surf Shak is a great and simple place for a few nights. It was great to get in contact with Wayne and we wish him all the best for his art and building projects. The place has everything a tramper/surfer/travellor needs to have it comfortable. And its located a few steps away from really nice beaches (both sand and fine-stony available).

    Magnus2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We were so lucky to find this special place to stay, Wayne is keen to share his lovely place for us. Highly recommend this place. :)
