A place like no other
Merely an hour 45 from both Wellington and Palmerston North you will find a tranquil abode to rest and rejuvenate. Nestled under the Tararua Ranges near the township of Masterton, find yourself a new favourite place.
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.
Proudly fashioned from NZ grown timbers, The Glade Cottage is off-grid, double glazed, socially distanced and warmed by a little woodburner.
