About this Holiday House

Unique native bush foreshore setting comprising of 2 attractive stand alone cottages, one for living, one for sleeping(see detailed photo) with very attractive sea views, only metres away from waters edge. Composting toilet for environmental reasons, looks like a normal toilet, but you dont flush! Mooring, 12ft dinghy ,4 Kayaks. Great fishing! Road access, sealed to property, steep drive (2 wheel drive ok), 40 steps from carpark through native bush to cottage, needs a little fitness. Unobtrusive owners live on site. Large 4 acre section guarantees privacy for cottage tenants. Fantastic Honeymoon place! Why dont you come and share our little paradise?

Our second stay at Karamu, and it was just as relaxing and beautiful as we had remembered. Vic and Yvonne are so welcoming, and Trev the dog was just gorgeous (with such good manners). The bach is well equipped, and so very comfortable, with a fantastic view. Thankyou so much for sharing your slice of paradise with us.

Thanks trudy and josh for the great review and taking the time to do so
Thank you so much for sharing this truly magical place with us. Of all the places we have been to over the past years this is definitely a MUST RETURN! It was not only the stunning view, the beautiful garden or the lovely details around the bach, but also your friendly nature and kind hospitality that made our stay so memorable. We will be back for sure! Thank you!

Thank you Vic and Yvonne for staying at your lovely holidayhome! Such a beauty spot right on the water edge. Quiet, very relaxing, super friendly hosts and cosy spacious and clean cottage.. Enjoyed the kayaks, beautifull bays and mussels for lunch, your stunning garden, swimming twice a day, beauty walks nearby, the waking up to beautiful views off the bay.It was perfect. We only stayed 3 nights but it felt like a weeks holiday! We will be back and are already wandering what we discover next! Take care, Daan and Marjan,
