Villa on Castle over looking the estuary

Family-friendly holiday home in Riverton
The Villa opened December 2016 and we have had great success and fantastic reviews.
Renovations include, a new kitchen, bathroom, decorated throughout and new flooring.

When I saw Villa on Castle I was enchanted by its charm and bygone era. The restoration project has been fulfilling and watching the original 1919 villa emerge was exciting. Rimu ceilings throughout and open fireplaces that were oringinal but now for decoration. Central heating will keep you toasty. The coal range is still in place.

The lounge overlooks the estuary with a big bay window and seating for those relaxed evenings. There are board games available for your use.

Riverton is a gateway to the South where it is only 32km from Invercargill. Riverton itself has some safe swimming beaches and Riverton rocks offers a gentle wave for guests wanting to learn to surf, boogie board or paddleboard.

You can drive West and Colac Bay is only 5 min away by car, a popular surf spot by locals and on windy days you can watch the kite surfers. The Colac Bay pub and Pavillion offers meals.

Further along the road you can visit Cosy Nook, Monkey Island and Gem Stone Beach at Orepuki. At low tide you can catch mussels. At Orepuki you can see the Fiordland mountain ranges making the view quite spectacular, a visit to cafe a must with homemade baking and quality food.
