India House is a rustic, charming 3 bedroom stand-alone cottage, located at Whareama, close to the beach resort of Riversdale. Situated at the end of a 'no exit' road, simply enjoy the peace and quiet of an early settler cottage, steeped in history, in the beautiful countryside setting of Ica Station.

When it was originally built in 1866 it consisted of two rooms and a lean-to, housing Capt Henry Fendal and his 'Indian servant' - hence the name. Today 'India House' offers our visitors comfortable, clean, rustic accommodation and a location with interesting early NZ rural character. The cottage is quaint and still enjoys many of its original features. It has 3 small bedrooms (a queen and two twin rooms), a living room, small dining kitchen and inside bathroom with flushing toilet.

With uninterrupted views over a small lake and beautiful countryside, here you can relax, read a book, have a glass of wine and listen to the birds in the peaceful and extremely private setting of this cottage.

With Riversdale and Otahome Beaches only 15 mins drive away and Castlepoint Beach 35 mins in the opposite direction, this bach is an ideal base for surfers, fishermen, golfers, couples, families or groups of friends to explore the East Coast of the Wairarapa!
