Korora, named for the Little Blue penguins that are local to the region, is an architecturally-designed "treehouse" nestled in and above the native bush. Marvel at stunning views of the golden sands of Kaiteriteri beach and bay, the Richmond Range, Kina Cliffs and Tasman Bay.
Korora has unbeatable location, with stunning beaches at Kaiteriteri and Breakers Bay a scenic 10-15 minute walk down through native bush via a well-worn track that brings you out to the Kaiteriteri waterfront and beach.
Korora is wrapped with two covered and one uncovered decks, with stunning views and seamless indoor-outdoor flow for summer months!
Enjoy the peaceful serenity at Korora, while still being less than a 5-minute drive from the local store, cafes and bars! The keen fisherman can catch brown trout from the nearby Riwaka and Motueka rivers, and even bring them back to cook on the BBQ for dinner!
Round off your stay at Korora by visiting the spectacular limestone caves on the Takaka Hill, and of course a famous Golden Bay vineyard!

Great location. Clean and well equipped. We would recommend owners attend to street numbering (relocate to eye level when sitting in car) trim shrubbery so this is not obscured and include notes re shared access with neighbours driveway, in the entry instructions. That they also arrange for pillow protectors to be on all pillows in bedrooms and these are checked to ensure they are clean and replaced between tenants. When we arrived these were stained and had human hair on them. Presumably had been used without pillowcases by a number of people. Both items easy to resolve.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this feedback and we are working with the suggestions you have made.

Wonderful location in a protected spot on the ridge above Kaiteriteri, with superb views over the bay, water, and estuary, and easy access to the local's walking track down through the campground to the beach. The house is extremely comfortable, and well laid out with open-plan living on the top floor, and several outdoor seating areas for all times of day and weather. Two decent sized bedrooms are downstairs, and feel quiet and secluded; one has an private deck for mornings, and both open onto native bush. A great place to stay.

A little bit disconnected from the main beach but totally outweighed by view, quality, ambience and feel of the house. Highly recommend
AdriStayed October 2021
Lovely house with spectacular views! Listening and seeing the Tui's was our favourite! The climb up and down the hill was a good workout, but would be impossible in the wet. All in all we had a fantastic stay!
EmmaStayed October 2021
We really enjoyed our stay - the house has wonderful views and that window seat is heaven! Easy trot into town and great facilities at the house - it was well equipped. We would stay again.

A great place to stay - fantastic view and very comfortable
RobertStayed December 2020
A great pla;Ce for a couple or a small family the only thing not be aware of is the steep drive and no lawn area if there are young children. The property is surrounded with decks so you can catch all aspects of the sun. A lovely peaceful setting.
LawrenceStayed October 2020
A marvelous place to feel stress free and enjoy what there are to offer away from the public eye.

Great house in a magnificent setting, with a fabulous view
JulieStayed March 2020
House is entirely as pictured, perhaps even better. Everything is fairly new and in good nick, and the porch view is lovely at different times of day. Good location: very short (if a bit narrow) drive down to Kaiteriteri boats, not much farther to Marahau. Or you can walk down the bush path, which is quite lovely for a morning walk to boats or coffee. No wifi as of our stay, and a bit hard to find in the dark first time, but overall a great stay for the park.

Beautiful home in a great location with an awesome view!
WFStayed October 2019
Great view of Kaiteriteri! The home was perfect for our stay. The beds were comfortable, and the views from the lounge, kitchen, and deck were fantastic. The kitchen was fully equipped.
PenniStayed May 2019
This property was wonderful with everything available needed for a relaxing stay. The view is amazing and it’s only a quick walk down to the beach. Would love to visit again if we come back to the area.

TonyStayed February 2019
Nice views but nothing flash. At the top of a hill so be prepared to give the legs a good workout going to the beach if you don't have a car.
Hi Tony, we're glad you liked the view! It's true, the hill is a real workout if you're walking back - but we hope you agree the view is worth it.
PatrickStayed December 2018
Beautiful house with a fantastic view. Well designed home. Great for two couples.
JanetStayed October 2018

AliceStayed October 2018
This house is better than it looks in the photos. Amazing view and beautiful location in the bush. A 10 minute walk down a bush track leads you to the campsite & beach. There was room on the street to park our 6-metre boat but we had to keep it attached to our vehicle as it's on a slight slope. This meant we had to carry our gear up the driveway to the house (about 50 metres up a hill) as we couldn't use our vehicle to access the house. No problem for us though as we didn't have too much gear.
Hi Alice, thank you for the wonderful feedback on the house! Unfortunately there is no private boat parking at this property, I am sure your feedback will be useful for future guests who also find themselves in a similar situation.
