Changes made are; brand new quality bedding, towels and robes (to keep you cosy as you walk out to the loo in the night). The bed is brand new and has a high quality memory foam mattress. Interaction with guests: Whilst your hosts are based in Invercargill they are only a phone call away should you have any problems. Also please do not hesitate to give us a call if there is any local advice we can help with! We have recently installed a heat pump so the Hut is super cosy! And a brand new gas califont system means the shower is amazing!

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

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.

Absolutely fantastic place. Gorgeous cottage. Loved the outdoor bath. Love all the little touches.

This wee hut is AMAZING; we loved EVERYTHING about this place and will definitely be staying again. What an absolute treasure to stay in and we thank the owners for sharing it. The location is wonderful, you feel far away from everything with an outlook across paddocks or the beautiful native flora planted about the garden; it is peaceful and sheltered from the wind; there is a beach is a 10min walk away, and the main street of Riverton is 2min drive away; the hut is equally close to all those wonderful walks/beaches/drives that Riverton offers; the outdoor bath is long and deep and private; the shower and toilet are beautifully positioned outside the main hut with amazing water pressure; inside the hut is cosy, warm, well designed and well stocked; the bed and bedding is lovely and comfortable; we enjoyed the thoughtful homely touches e.g. the bathrobes, lollies, cookies and basic cooking ingredients. We are so grateful to have found a place that allows dogs and our wee Staffy girl loved the property as much as us! I cannot recommend this place highly enough; one of our new favourites.
