Our beach house has fabulous views of Taramea Bay and enjoys daylong sunshine. Beautiful sunrises through to the late afternoon/evening sun in the conservatory/back deck. Soak up the sun on the deck overlooking the Bay or if the weather is not up to being outdoors keep warm and cosy inside with the fire and enjoy the constantly changing view over the Bay.

Other things to note

Thirty kilometres from Invercargill, Riverton's population is an interesting mix of artists and fishermen. The town spans Jacob's River Estuary, a picturesque location framed by the vast, sweeping coastline.

The township itself is nearly 200 years old and steeped in history.
The quaint, old fashioned shop fronts of main street are an attraction in themselves – many home to off-beat shops, cafes and art galleries. A craft trail of artists' studios will take you to visit potters, painters, and Maori weavers and carvers.

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. Why not try collecting your own seafood? Explore Western Southland where you could try collecting paua or mussels along the coastline.

Nearby Colac Bay is home to ‘The Porridge’, which ranks among New Zealand’s top surfing spots. 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.

Such a beautiful escape! Riverton is a cute little seaside town and Deborah's home is the perfect base to explore the south. Too many highlights to list: Wine by the fire, watching the sunrise over the bay from the lounge, dinner at the Beach House & jogging in the rain with the backdrop of snow capped mountains! The house is clean, warm & in a great spot. We travelled to Invercargill each day (30min drive) for a sporting event & were so happy to be based in Riverton. Ace to get out of the city & unplug. Thanks to Deborah and Ross for making our stay special. We hope to come back!
