Kaituna Riverside Cottages is an idyllic spot where you can join the native birds and sleep with the sound of the river. 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.
Off grid, boutique and lovely.

Luxurious Riverside Bath
Immerse in nature above the river rapids and watch the native birds as you soak
Such a special place, so much love and work went into creating this little paradise. The private river access is truly unique and the outdoor bath was magical. The cottage was so comfortable and stylish with views of the ranges and so many extra little touches. We had everything we needed for a true off-grid experience to reconnect with nature and take a breather from our busy city lives. Would highly recommend, can’t wait to go back!
