We have recently bought this property, and spent many many weeks redesigning the house, to give guests their own space, and separate wing.
Everything is new, with lots of thought put into ensuring your comfort, and as we have been looking after guests for almost 20 years, we are sure that you will enjoy the extra comforts.

Meals would be available in the evening, (only with prior notice) although there are many lovely restaurants and cafes, in Riverton, and the surrounds.

Base yourself in Riverton, and explore the wonderful untouched area, walk, bike, jog, swim in the sea, visit Stewart Island, go fishing, visit Te Anau for the day, climb the Hump Track, it's all here, and it's not too crowded

A review from guests

In January 2012, we stayed with Gay and Arch Maley in their beautiful home in Riverton.

The recently renovated house is situated on a hill and there are magnificent views of Jacob’s Inlet and distant views of the beach. Our suite of bedroom, small sitting room and bathroom was elegant and luxurious. The panorama from the balcony of the estuary provides an ever changing scene, the Timitaku mountains form the background making sunsets striking, but for a visitor from a drier climate, it is the green pastures of the middle distance that give the area its beauty.

At breakfast, we were distracted by Tui and Bellbirds on the balcony. The iridescent colours of the Tui shone brightly making them very photogenic. Blackbirds, thrushes, sparrows and chaffinches were on the ground or made brief visits to the balcony for a drink.  Oystercatchers, swans and spoonbills could be seen in the estuary at low tide.

A walk or a very short drive through the town to the river mouth allowed us to watch several family groups floundering. Two people were at each end of nets, which were about 10 metres long, and the outer two waded into the water up to their chests. Then they seemed to wade slowly along the river against the current of the incoming tide. After a variable period of time the net was dragged onto the shore. I have to admit that I did not see any flounders being caught. One family group did go home with a large bag of pippies.

Further along the beach there were many people swimming or learning how to surf. Since it was a very calm period, the surf was very gentle. Towards the open sea, the beach changed from golden sand to a pebbly shore with large rocks and this was where beach rods were being used. This part of the shore is a breeding site for oystercatchers and banded dotterels. We saw many pairs of oystercatchers.

Across the strait there are distant views if Stewart Island. We could just see Codfish Island, site of the successful program to save the Kakapo. This was made famous when Stephen Fry and his friend met Sirocco, a male Kakapo who thinks he is human.
