Wairoro Part is a unique holiday experience with absolute private beachfront, native bush walks through Kiwi habitat, on a 64 acre coastal estate near Russell Bay of Islands. At Wairoro Park you'll enjoy luxurious holiday home accommodation at an affordable rate, in a peaceful and tranquil location. Thanks to our extensive grounds and the fact that we own the beach dogs are allowed off leash provided they are under their owners control and in their sight. Take a step back in time to 1970 for a real New Zealand holiday atmosphere and relaxed hospitality.

We have a large sloping lawn and flat grassed area above the beach for families to play and relax. On the beachfront there are a number of sun loungers and beach chairs. We have kayaks, a dingy, 1.5 tonne mooring, lifejackets, table tennis, books and games available for guest use.

The Russell to Okiato walk crosses the rear of the property running through regenerating Kiwi habitat. Wairoro Park has placed Approximately 1/3 of the property into QE2 trust, to protect this valuable habitat for perpetuity. Around the Chalet you may be lucky enough to hear Kiwi night and see Weka during the day.

The accommodation: Our Klassic chalet offers bush, garden and more distant sea views. There is one double bedroom with a king sized bed. In the lounge/kitchen there is a fold out sofa suitable for a child. There is a small fully kitchen, with microwave, grill and ceramic stove open plan kitchen,lounge and dining area. A en suite bathroom with shower,toilet and small vanity. There is a covered deck with a BBQ and two deck chairs. We supply towels and linen.

Wairoro Park has been owned by the Boerop family since 1971, with Beryl now retired and living on the property and happy to answer and questions.

We are able to accommodate larger groups by arrangement.

Special conditions: You are welcome to bring your dog. Your dog must be safe with children and other pets. Your dog needs to be kept in your sight and control at all times. You must clean up after you dog and not allow them to foul the beach or grounds.

    Great place - quiet, beautiful, natural. A real relief from city life, great for family with kids as it's very safe and full with nice birds. Will come there again for sure

  • It's a lovely estate with a great location and is very peaceful,...

    It's a lovely estate with a great location and is very peaceful, but it looks and feels a little tired and could do with an injection of energy and a general spruce-up.
