PROS: Absolutely quintessential cabin experience. This was very inexpensive yet quite comfortable with all amenities functioning well. The owner was quite pleasant and helpful and the surrounding area beautiful, quiet, sunny, relaxing. In general this area is not littered with massive tour buses and touristy fan fare - it was my favorite area in NZ and I wish I had...

We've stayed here twice over the last month as we've explored the region. It makes a perfect base and offers all the creature comforts you need to cook, bathe, sleep and chill out. We stayed in Bach 5 both times and found it really warm, cosy and lovely. Reminds me of my Gran's place with the retro carpet, wallpaper and...

This was my second trip to Karamea. Last time I was travelling alone and really enjoyed my stay at Rongo Backpackers. This time I was with my sister and 87 year old father so we stayed at the Farm Baches owned and run by the same family. If you want the Hilton don't bother but if you are looking for...

My heart sank when I walked into this Bach. We were in Bach 5. The only reason I gave this place a 2, rather than a 1, is because of the manager's kindness and very helpful attitude. There were cobwebs in some of the corners, the shower had rust in it, the wallpaper was falling off the walls, the bathroom...

We stayed here, a group of 8 in two of the larger Baches for 2 nights. Great accommodation, comfy beds and clean. A real step back in time with the decor and even some of the crockery. Great hosts with good ideas and information of the area, would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Karamea Baches for 5 nights after completely the Heaphy Track. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. The baches were reasonably clean but are rundown and could do with a serious make over. Start by pulling out the carpet in bathroom / toilet area which probably dates back to the time the baches were built (smelly). The garden...

What a lovely hideaway! Hosts very friendly and welcoming, great art in the bach too. Clean and tidy, cheerful and cheap as well.
