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 New Zealand rural character.

With Riversdale and Otahome beaches only 15 mins drive away and Castlepoint Beach 35 mins in the opposite direction, this cottage is an ideal base to explore the East Coast of the Wairarapa.
