A beautiful house nestled in the ferns with abundant bird life and unsurpassed views to Paterson's Inlet. Located in a quiet street this top quality house is perfect for a couples get away, bird watchers and walkers/outdoor enthusiasts or anyone wanting a weekend to escape the business of life and re-charge in the natural beauty of Stewart Island.
“What a gorgeous house in an incredible spot. The views are epic, particularly from the master bedroom. Beds were comfy and the house was well set up and cosy. Plenty of space to hang out and the deck was a great place for listening to, and watching, the birds in the evening and the morning. Close to town, hill walk but incredible views and just a little way up from the house was an awesome lookout.”
Very quiet location with a welcome to overseas and New Zealand visitors. Families welcome but parents are asked to remember that although the road has little traffic, the property is not fenced. We have the greatest sea views, plenty of land and pelagic birds to spot with many simple and more challenging walks available, very like New Zealand used to be. Friendly but not intrusive people, helpful house manager available.
“Ringaringa Cottage was perfect for our visit. Fab views of the sea, and although it was a reasonable distance to walk into the village we really enjoyed all the walking and having a car to use when we didn't want to walk was brilliant. We filled the house but there was plenty of space for us all. It was great that there was wood and kindling to keep ourselves warm with a fire after a soggy but very fun fishing trip which provided enough fish to cook Blue Cod 3 ways for all, in the well supplied kitchen. The other thing worthy of a mention is how accomodating both Mary and Moana were in so many ways. And it was great to be met from the boat and be able to store our gear even though it was well before check-in time. We would definitely book to stay there again.”
Fully self contained accommodation with modern amenities. Privately situated yet only 2-minutes walk from restaurants, the hotel, wharf and shops. Catering for 2-12 people, ideal for families or large groups.
“We loved our stay at Kereru House. The place was roomy and well set up with everything we needed. Great location close to the main town. Three minutes walk to the really well stocked (and very reasonably priced) Four Square shop and four minutes walk to the friendly pub. We loved watching the cheeky kaka on the deck and the kereru in the trees.”
