Ica View


Ica View is located 35 minutes east of Masterton and just over two hours from Wellington.

Unwind in a cosy barrel cabin nestled within the gentle undulations of rolling farmland hills. It's the ultimate getaway, far removed from the hustle and bustle.

The accommodation is made up of three separate buildings connected via a pathway. The main barrel cabin features a comfy queen bed and a warming wood burner. A covered lean-to kitchen a few metres away is where you can cook up a storm in the fresh country air. The bathroom is also located only a few steps away. 

While away the hours enjoying the everchanging views of the countryside from the deck or gently swaying in the hammock with a good book. When day turns to night, treat yourself to a luxurious soak in the hot outdoor bath under a sparkling sky.

If you're lucky enough to stay on a clear evening, you may even see the incredible Milky Way.

  • things to do

    Ica View has many breathtaking farmland vistas to take in while you unwind and recharge. Reconnect with nature with a leisurely walk around the farm. And if your timing is right, you'll be able to watch the spring lambs frolicking around in the paddocks.

    Explore the region and head out to Castlepoint lighthouse to hike the iconic Castlepoint Rock with awe-inspiring panoramas at every turn. The Anzac Crosswalk, the world's first Anzac Memorial, is another must-do.

    For a refreshing summer day trip, Riversdale Beach is an ideal destination. Enjoy a cooling dip in the ocean and take advantage of the nearby golf course and tennis courts.

    When the day winds down, retreat indoors to a game of cards or a board game next to the fireplace. Or, a hot outdoor bubble bath with a glass of your favourite pinot may be more your style!
