Nukuhau is situated half an hour over scenic roads from the main highway, on a high plateau overlooking our carbon farm and QEII reserve. The large house is basically but comfortably furnished with all you need for a retreat or holiday. In addition to beds we also have foam mattresses which can be used marae style on the living room floor.

The 500 acre farm consists of steep hills and valleys but is fully tracked and suitable for exploring on foot. At the bottom of the farm there is a small river. This property is the ideal place for a quiet retreat or as a base for outdoor activities. The views of Mt Taranaki and of the bush clad hill country are spectacular, and sunsets and night skies well worth the journey.

It is situated adjacent to two DOC reserves which can be accessed for tramping or hunting. Nearby are historic sites, viewpoints with commanding views from Mt Taranaki to Mt Ruapehu, and a local museum.

For wet weather we have games, books, DVDs, and a piano.

    Great place for a quiet weekend away. Isolated property so you really feel as though you have left your stresses behind.

    The property was lovely, nestled away in the mountains with a beautiful view. There are some really nice walks around - highly recommend the walk from the house to Rewi Alley's cottage if you have a day and don't mind a 20km walk.
