About this Holiday House

. Quiet and peaceful country cottage! • Only 15 mins drive to the beach and local golf course! • Beautiful outlook – set in private estate grounds, accommodates up to 6 persons. * Access to a swimming pool and spa pool! India House is a rustic, charming 3 bedroom cottage, located at Whareama, close to the beach resort of Riversdale. Situated at the end of a ‘no exit’ road, simply enjoy the peace and quiet of an early settler cottage, steeped in history, in the beautiful countryside setting of Ica Station. Originally built in 1866, today ‘India House’ offers our visitors comfortable, clean, rustic accommodation and a location with interesting early NZ rural character. The cottage is quaint and still enjoys many of its original features. It has 3 small bedrooms (a queen and two twin rooms), a living room, small dining kitchen and inside bathroom with flushing toilet and shower over bath. With uninterrupted views over a small lake and beautiful countryside, here you can relax, read a book, have a glass of wine and listen to the birds in the peaceful and extremely private setting of this cottage. With Riversdale and Otahome Beaches only 15 mins drive away and Castlepoint Beach 35 mins in the opposite direction, this bach is an ideal base for surfers, fishermen, golfers, couples or groups of friends to explore the East Coast of the Wairarapa!. There's plenty to see and do in the area. Nearby Riversdale and Castlepoint offer superb Golf Courses, Tennis Courts, Swimming, Fishing, Surfing, Walking, Diving and Boating. Or Otahome, where you often have the beach to yourselves. Whareama has a Boat Ramp and small Church. Close by is the village of Tinui that has a Café and Bar, Craft Shop, Antique shop and Living Historic Village as well as the oldest ANZAC Memorial Cross, you can now walk up to using the new public walkway (Nov - Apr each year). We run the 'Whareama Coastal Walk', a 2 or 3 day fully catered walking experience across private farmland and isolated Wairarapa Coastline. We are also a Wedding Venue. A marquee can be placed on our lawns with the Homestead and steps as a backdrop. We have accommodation for up to 20 people here in the Homestead, India House and Ica Whare - so plenty of beds for guests and walkers!.
