Kete Aronui is located in the "old" village on Scarborough Tce; within a short (~5 min), level walk to the hot pools, restaurants, shops, and reserves. Dog Stream Reserve is located over the road, and from here a number of walking and cycling tracks can be accessed through the adjacent forests.

It is a great place to relax, unwind, and contemplate life, the universe, and well, everything - hence the name we have chosen:"Tane, the progenitor of mankind, and of the forest, ascended from earth to the heavens and obtained the three kete (baskets) of knowledge: Ko te kete tuauri - knowledge of ritual, memory and prayerKo te kete tuatea - knowledge that is evil and harmful to mankindKo te kete aronui - knowledge of creativity and things to help mankind.

The house is fully furnished. However tenants must provide their own sheets (including a top sheet please), pillow cases, towels, food and drinks, and personal hygiene products (including toilet paper).

All other bedding and cooking utensils are provided. Furnishings include electric blankets on all beds (except two of the single beds at present), a TV and DVD player (plus a small selection of DVDs), a basic CD player, card table, and swing ball. Wood for the log burner is supplied. A BBQ is also provided for your enjoyment - however the gas bottle is not provided; you may hire one at $5 per night.

A large outdoor table will be constructed shortly. The kitchen includes the basics plus the entertaining essentials for a great holiday; lots of platters and large bowls, large wine glasses and tumblers. We are presently renovating the property and aim to make it that little bit different with "up-cycled" retro furniture and other features to reflect our interests and creativity.

We like staying in places with personality and hope you do too! We have a large, flat, unfenced section (with a clothes line).

Children are welcome, but no pets please.
