Wharemauku Retreat Raumati

 Awesome, place to stay, all the basics one needs as well as some wonderful new speakers and new carpet too! Best of all is the wonderful deck that looks out on the amazing view where there are a lovely set of outdoor furniture to relax and enjoy the aesthetics of the place. Best shower too, great pressure and wonderful warmth. The place is lovely and warm and well insulated, with both the possible use of fire or heat pump, it is also great in the heat to have big doors and windows to open.
