Ica Station Whare is a rustic, charming 1 bedroom stand-alone (self-contained) unit, located in the grounds of Ica Station Homestead at Whareama, close to the beach resort of Riversdale.
Ica Whare offer our visitors comfortable, clean, rustic accommodation in a location with interesting early NZ rural character. Situated at the end of a 'no exit' road, next door to the impressive Ica Homestead (a NZ Heritage Registered Building), simply enjoy the peace and quiet of an early settler 'Whare', in the beautiful countryside setting of Ica Station Homestead grounds.
With views over the garden, here you can relax, read a book, have a glass of wine and listen to the birds in the peaceful setting of this cottage. Next door is our Homestead accommodation where all our guests have use of the spa pool and swimming pool during their stay.
With Riversdale and Otahome Beaches only 15 minutes drive away and Castlepoint Beach 35 minutes in the opposite direction, this bach is an ideal base of couples to explore the East Coast of the Wairarapa!
There's plenty to see and do in the area. Nearby Riversdale and Castlepoint offer superb Golf Courses, Tennis Courts, Swimming, Fishing, Surfing, Walking, Diving and Boating. Or Otahome, where you often have the beach to yourselves. Close by is the village of Tinui that has a Cafe & Bar, Craft Shop, Antique Shop and Living Historic Village as well as the oldest ANZAC Memorial Cross that now has a public access walkway up to it (Nov - Apr annually).
We run the 'Whareama Coastal Walk', a 2 or 3 day fully catered walking experience across private farmland and isolated Wairarapa Coastline. We are also a Wedding Venue. A marquee can be placed on our lawns with the Homestead and steps as a backdrop. We have accommodation for up to 22 people here in the Homestead, India House and Ica Whare - so plenty of beds for guests and walkers.
