Kaituna Riverside Cottages offers unique accommodation on the banks of the crystal clear Waingawa river. Relax off-grid in a boutique nature based cottage just west of the township of Masterton, in the Wairarapa.


There are plenty of activities for the adventurous folk and many options for those who would like to relax and stop. No malls, traffic jams, meetings or deadlines to be found.

It's the perfect place to book a getaway, explore a new region and get into the outdoors.

Proudly fashioned from NZ grown timbers, the Glade Cottage is off-grid, double glazed, socially distanced and warmed by a little woodburner.

The photos don’t do this place justice. We stayed at both the Glade and the Bankside Cottages. The location next to the river, nestled in the bush is so serene. There are many wonderful hidden gems to explore. The cottages are cosy with special touches everywhere you look, with beautiful flowers everywhere. There are books, games and night gazing binoculars. The most accommodating hosts.

We felt so grateful to be able to spend time there as a family.
