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
  • A charming little bach with a lovely garden and very comfortable bed. Toilet and shower a bit different but rather fun and shower hot and efficient.Every thing provided for quiet and peaceful stay.

    An original retro Riverton crib/bach/holiday home with gorgeous beach and sea views. One street back from Taramea Bay beach this cute, comfy and warm wee house will take you back to your childhood holidays spent at the beach. The famous Beach House cafe is 10 minutes walk. An ideal base to explore from, drive to Cozy Nook, Monkey Island, Gemstone Beach around to Orepuki cafe with stunning views of Te Waewae Bay and onto Tuatapere and Fiordland. With multiple decks, soak up the sun and the stars!
    The crib has two bedrooms, two living areas and is heated by a wood burning fire and heat pump. Two decks off each living space mean you can enjoy plenty of natural light and sunshine, and provide extra living areas when the weather is good. A bath with shower over, separate toilet and fully equipped laundry make this just like home.
    A short walk along the beach to the Beach House Restaurant and Bar (approx 10 minutes). Get picked up and dropped off by the Aparima Tavern (great food and views of the tidal estuary). 2 minute walk to Taramea Bay beach.

    Sorry, but we are not available to provide isolation accommodation. But please check back after Covid-19 restrictions are lifted! Quiet and convenient, light and airy accommodation handy to town and beach. See what the tide is doing from your bedroom window and plan your day! Ideally suited to travelers exploring the area and needing a comfortable stopover.
    The accommodation consists of a double bedroom with a cosy adjacent sitting room. Both have double glazed french doors leading onto a private balcony En suite leads off the bedroom and a mini-fridge/microwave/kettle and basic crockery are in a separate alcove. These are suitable for do-it-yourself breakfast or simple microwave heat meals. Heater in the bedroom and electric blanket on the double bed + extra bedding available if needed Riverton is 35 -40 minutes drive from Invercargill, but a world away in life-style. Our cute two-story house is 10 minutes walk to the local shops and cafes and handy to More's Reserve with its great bush walks and is ideal for exploring the Southland region by car or bike. Easy parking on our property and plenty of under-cover storage for bikes etc. Great for Te Araroa walkers (we are on your route) or Cape Reinga to Bluff cyclists Riverton is a small fishing village straddling the mouth of the Aparima River and offers a bit of everything! All the essentials can be bought locally , but we also have some interesting art shops and Southland's 'best small museum', which is a must see.
    We are withing easy walking distance of the shops, cafes and the Aparima River mouth. Also close to the Te Aroha walkway route. Our area is on the edge of the town, bordering farmland and is very safe and quiet.
  • Wonderfully warm hosts, Barbara and Bill made us feel right at home. Guests have the whole upper floor, feels like a small flat. Very comfortable, perfectly located. Recommended!

    Garance2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcoming and warm couple. My sister and I had a great time staying here for two nights. Very clean, great and quick communication, good location. Barbara and her husband even took time to show us their animals and her studio. We had a couple of windy nights but enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and the bed was warm 😊

    Franziska2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Jisun2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Megan2020-02-04T00:00:00Z

    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.

Thank you Josie & team for a great long weekend stay. We could have easily stayed longer!

The home was sparkly clean, huge home, such a warm heat pump - and don’t even get me started on the huge balcony overlooking the whole ocean, every sunset and every sunrise was watched outside, it was such an awe! I saved the number knowing I’ll be visiting this home every few month. Thank you so much!! Xxx

  • We enjoyed our stay at Cherie's BnB in Riverton. The pièce de résistance of this BnB is enjoying an ale on the deck, taking in the vista while the sun is setting. The house is warm, the bed amazing and fantastic shower pressure. I didn't realise there wasn't WiFi (as this was a business trip)... that was MY oversight, my mistake. I have no hesitation recommending this BnB to other travellers.

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!

    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.

    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!

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).

  • Very nice place right by the beach, clean and cozy. Jessica organized a surf lesson for us, which was a lot of fun. Make sure not to arrive too late in the evening if you haven't had dinner yet - it can be quite difficult to find a restaurant that still serves you (the Aparima has a reduced bar menu after 8/9ish).

    Fabio2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely room and view. Very sunny and warm. Would recommend to stay here.

    Leonie2020-02-08T00:00:00Z

  • Clean and comfortable place to stay in Riverton between our hiking adventures. Walkable distance to cute local restaurant and right in the beautiful pebble beach.

    JoAnna2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great location if you want right on the beach and peace and quiet. Which is just what we wanted. Jessica made everything easy and helped me out with a phone charger when I needed it. Great beach for beach combing and enjoying the open space. We loved walking from here both ways up and down the beach. Excellent seafood restaurant straight up the street which I recommended to others to visit. We ate their two nights in a row!

    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!

    We have been open since December 2016 with great success and fantastic reviews, come and see for yourself. Villa on Castle will take you back in time while offering all the modern comforts for everyday living. Fully fenced and private with BBQ. Unobstructed views overlooking the estuary, where you can observe the changing tides. Walking distance to The Aparima for dining/drinks or a stroll into town for more options. The beach is only a few minutes away by car.
    The villa is spacious and it was built in 1919 and a lot of the oringinal features still exist. High ceiling with rimu (NZ native hardwood) ceilings and there are three original fireplaces which are now decorative. Central heating (radiators) has been installed to make each room as warm as the next. There is an open plan kitchen with dining which has been created to give the villa a modern and social feel. The lounge at the front of the house has views of the Aparima esturay which has a bay window in original wooden sash windows. The garden is large and to the East side it is fully fenced. You can sit on the veranda and enjoy the water views.
    Riverton is a sleepy fishing village with good cafes and restaurants near by. You can be rest assured time will stand still as you escape from your daily life.
  • Beautiful Place to stay.

    Roger2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing weekend at villa on castle. Loved the amenities and styling of the villa. Would definitely recommend to others and would love to stay here again soon.

    Cathal2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful old villa which has been lovingly restored and is sparkling clean - great location and value for money - Riverton is a special little part of NZ - the museum is well worth a visit .

    Debra2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house at Riverton is outstanding. It's a lovely traditional weatherboard decorated in a traditional style. There was plenty of room for four adults and we had all the amenities we needed.. It was also quiet and in a lovely location overlooking the inlet. It was especially nice to have central heating and the large TV with sound system was a bonus. Thoroughly recommended.

    Michael2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quaint and comfortable villa. Beautiful location on the estuary and walkable to town. Our host Kathryn was very friendly and hospitable and had great suggestions for visiting the area. Modern well equipped kitchen and very comfy beds!

    Lee2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with wonderful ocean views. Slightly older style cottage with mostly single glazing made the house very cold on arrival, however there is a heatpump and heaters to battle the cold. Very happy to be able to take our dog with us, thanks Rose!

    Thabit2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • The most idyllic little cottage with stunning beach and sunrise views. Great location close to the beach, park and the Beachhouse cafe. Loved the bath! Nice and warm. Wonderful host and gorgeous fully fenced section (and dog friendly!) We had an amazing weekend and will be back

    Hannah2019-08-19T00:00:00Z

    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. This would make a great base to explore from. Julie was quick to respond to all emails and gave us a lovely warm welcome. We thoroughly recommend Iowna Estate.

    Samantha2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

    A wonderful romantic getaway, girls weekend or family holiday. Beautifully restored 1950s lighting, soft pastels, huge deck with sea views .
    Wanting to step back into yesteryear? Well you'll love Dahlia Cottage. Baby blue formica kitchen bench, vintage lighting in each room, pink pedestal basin and attention to detail make this cottage a holiday to remember. At the end of the street is beautiful Taramea beach, rockpools, playground and famous fish and chips. You have to try blue cod and great Chinese food at Taramea Store.
    Quiet street mainly holiday homes with a few permanent residents all very friendly.
  • Loved this place, it’s a super cute Lil cottage that is close to the beach and has a beautiful view

    Raven2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Alison2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place to stay to get away and be near the beach. Only a two minute walk to the main beach in Riverton, the cottage was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. I hope to book again next Summer.

    Nichola2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely home. Nice and cozy. Comfy bed. Highly recommend :)

    Toni2020-01-13T00:00:00Z

    Tastefully decorated,cosy three bedroom beach front Bach. Only 2 minutes walk to the beach. Great views from the house and elevated deck area across Taramea Bay. Fully fenced and safe for any children with a community playground great for the kids just 2 minutes away .You have a full view of this from the house or deck.
    You have great views of the Bay. Sit on the deck and watch the fishing boats go in and out The local Bay shop only 2 minutes away with were you can get the great takeaways of fresh Blue Cod. If you would prefer that sit down meal , we can recommended the Beach House Cafe only a 10 minute walk along the beach
  • Kaye's place is great. We had an eventfull trip getting there with multiple road closure's effecting the lower South Island. Kaye kept in touch and offered advice on roads to try. The house itself was ideal for us to use as a base for trips to Invercargill, Bluff and Tuatapere. The local Beachhouse Retaurant does a delicious evening meal overlooking the bay. If you were 6 adults you need to be aware that the bunk room is just that, otherwise the house is well kept and has everything you could ever need. Thanks Kaye

    Geoff2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We've stayed at many Riverton baches over the years, constantly seeking our own version of "bach perfection" - we've finally found it with Taramea Treasure. We'll be back for sure... especially when it's warm enough to SUP! Thank you Kaye for your wonderful hospitality.

    Sophie2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Taramea Treasure is a great spot for a winter weekend. The house is really warm with the fire and is a sun trap. The kids loved the easy walk to the playground and beach.

    Jeannie2019-06-03T00:00:00Z

    Tom2019-04-18T00:00:00Z

    Mel2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • This home is so airy and bright and comfortable. Completely updated space with every convenience. I can tell how much Kaye cares about her guests by the little touches and decor. It truly is a lovely place to stay. Walk (or run) along the expansive beach. Nice little town to grab a coffee or groceries.

    Patty2019-03-20T00:00:00Z

    Angelika2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, clean and peaceful. Very pleasant stay with comfortable bedding. Lots of entertainment for small children and the beach was a short walk away.

    Emma2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Sara thank you so much for the use of your holiday home. My family and I had an amazing time and after big days at the beach it was wonderful to retreat and relax at Pipo Point! Thanks again, Regards Jimmy.

    Jimmy2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sara's home is very light and spacious, I loved the beachy vibe and big sliding door to the porch! You can easily spend a couple of days here with a family or with 2 couples, but also if you're a solo traveler like me this is the perfect place to relax and wind down. I stayed here for 3 nights and although the weather was pretty bad I still had a lovely time reading a book by the fireplace. It can get pretty cold at night in the bedrooms, luckily the beds have electric blankets.

Check-in and check-out was really easy. I highly recommend this home and would be very surprised if you did not agree with my comments after your stay. Even rainy weather did not dampen out time here. Robyn & Chris
