LA RIVERAINE is a classic 50’s riverside cottage, set back from the foreshore reserve, beautifully restored and just a little bit French. Overflowing with charm and tranquility,  La Riveraine offers guests privacy and serenity.

The original boat shed below the cottage, has been restored and is a completely private space. The boatshed is the place to be late afternoon through to at sunset, where the play of light on the water & the cliffs on opposite shore are everchanging

The plunge pool is an absolute haven both on hot summer days & on the cooler nights when the pool can be heated. There is a 2 seater canoe & a foreshore reserve track should you want to explore further afield, but chances are you will not want to leave.
