Kaiteri House, sleeping four adults and four children, is perfect for a family holiday handy to iconic beaches and the Abel Tasman Park.
Designed by Nelson architect Ian Jack, this pole house has 4 floor levels, high-pitched wooden ceilings and open plan living spaces. There are 3 bedrooms - 2 doubles (the master with ensuite) and the “attic” which is a favourite with children. The mezzanine floor, with sofabed, provides an extra space for a quiet read or children’s games.
Two covered decks provide extra space to read, dine or play. Light and airy in summer, the house is warm and cosy in cooler months with a log burner and heat pump. The laundry and kitchen have everything needed for a pleasant stay (apart from a dishwasher).
The elevated site enjoys tranquility, abundant birdlife, and panoramic views over native bush to the main beach and Little Kaiteriteri, across Tasman Bay to Nelson and south to the ranges beyond Motueka.
Kaiteri House is 1 km from Breaker Bay and Kaiteriteri Beach with its general store, restaurants, and children’s playground. Access to the beach is by road, or (for the adventurous) via a rough walking track from the section. Famous for its beaches, Kaiteriteri is a place for all seasons. Swim, water ski, hire a kayak, try out the mountain bike park. Take a day trip by boat into the famous Abel Tasman track. In the evening, BBQ on the deck, take in the views and sample a local wine or craft beer.
House best suited to 4 adults and four children.
