Guests often search for this popular amenity
The Crib at Karitane was built in the early 20th century for the villages boat builder. Recently refurbished from the ground up, the cottage is now a comfortable, well-appointed retreat only 30 minutes from Dunedin, boasting gorgeous water views and good proximity to interesting walks and the beautiful Karitane beach. Suitable for couples or Girls Weekends. No kids under 16, and no pets thanks.

The space
The Crib has been described as "small but perfectly formed". In keeping with the age of the building, it houses the owners life-long collection of vintage furniture and effects which, for many guests, takes them on a delightful trip down memory lane. But for those whose last sighting of a candlewick bedspread and plastic cane chairs also involved musty bed-linen and doing endless dishes by hand, fear not ! This Crib is the owners place of relaxation, so features all mod-cons (think dishwasher, electric blankets, heated towels rails...).
