  • Secluded waterfront property right on the beach with magnificant views across the harbour
  • Modern studio house with well designed kitchen, open plan living area and private spacious deck
  • Unique pristine coastal region great for relaxing and only hour from Hamilton or the Waitomo Caves

Studio house with great modern kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedroom area.Your private deck is a lovely place to enjoy a wine and the amazing views.

Your privacy is assured as there are no neighbours around my property. So you wake up only to the sound of birds and the gentle of lap of the water.

You are only a few minutes walk from the sandy beach, with great swimming and a boat ramp right in front of the house.

A pristine harbour offers good fishing spots, plus ideal for sailing, kite surfing, paddle boarding or kayaking.Price includes 2 good sea kayaks.

With summer on it's way it is the ideal place for a relaxed get away, so you can curl up with a good book and a glass of wine to watch the sun go down.

We have lovely walking tracks in the area or it is a 15 minute drive to the Kawhia Golf Course.

There is a local horse trek available (in summer) or if you have your own horses we are happy for you to use our post & rail paddock facilities.

There are also Cafe's and some good local craft shops in nearby Kawhia.

This is also an area of historic cultural significance, with an old Pa site as our back drop. You can sit in the shade of our 1000+ year Pohutukawa tree and enjoy the ambience.

Although we are on the coast, Aotea is still central to a number of key tourist attractions in the region.

Less than 20 minutes you can be sitting in the Te Puia Hot Springs on the beach at Kawhia, watching the sun go down.

45 minutes south to the Otorohanga Kiwi and Native Bird House

45 minutes north to the Raglan Bridal Veil Falls

60 minutes scenic drive to Marokopa Falls and Mangapohue Natural Stone Bridge

  • Ruru Whare is beautiful

    Ruru Whare is beautiful. It was spotless on our arrival. What a great view. If you like the idea of "getting away" for a while, this place is perfect.

  • Highly recommended

    Highly recommended. The place was extremely well appointed, very clean and comfortable. The location is really lovely, at the end of the road, on a slight rise overlooking the harbour. There were horses in the paddock in front, also cows and sheep in the valley, so a lovely rural feel, though only a short walk to the village of Aotea. Lovely walks in the area, and very close to Kawhia which is a charming little town. A perfect place for time out.

    Beautiful nearly new property well maintained, clean and tidy, located 2 minutes to the beach. Ideal getaway for couples. The only reason we gave 4 star is because the Wifi was not working during our stay, however that could be due to the rough weather while we were there (for a remote location like Aotea Harbour it is fairly normal). We would love to go back for more fishing and kayaking next round.

  • A slice of paradise

    A slice of paradise. You couldn't wish for a more relaxing place to stay. Both the accommodation and location is outstanding. Next stay will be for longer.
