    Thank you for providing your feedback, Yasmin. Your comments regarding the cleanliness of the property do not reflect the standard we would usually expect. We have reviewed your booking and can see there is currently an ongoing damage claim in relation to your booking which we understand may have impacted your overall experience at this property. The photos of this property were taken around six months ago and we feel are still an accurate representation of what our guests can expect. Bachcare

About the location

Karitane is a picture perfect seaside settlement. Only a 30 minute drive from Dunedin, this spot has been a getaway place of Dunedinites for many years. Enjoy the native bush and birdlife by exploring the well known Huriawa Pa Walk or take to the sea to swim, kayak or fish. For a classic trip be sure to check out one of New Zealand's Top Fish & Chiperies - the Waikouaiti Fish Inn, a quick 7 minute drive away.
