Description

  • Verdant native forest setting beside crystal clear native stream.
  • 5 mins walk to safe sandy swimming beach. Collect your dinner.
  • Easy acces to the daywalks and horse treks around Farewell Spit and Wharariki Beach.

Lose yourselves in the tranquility of the surroundings. A perfect place for a family or group of friends to relax together.

Ruru is tastefully built in sustainably harvested native timbers and macrocarpa. It is snugly tucked on a stream confluence at the foot of Kahurangi National Park and enjoys a rich "dawn chorus" and "morepork" (native owl) song in the evenings.

A great log fire warms you on cooler evenings and a streamside bushbath awaits you after your daywalking, horse trekking or finishing the Heaphy Track.

The local beach is only 300m down the road and our 1 hour native forest walk starts at your doorstep. It crosses deep sided streams, passes by massive trees and is a host to many epiphytes and other native plant species. It emerges to a stunning panoramic view

over Golden Bay from our neighbour's cleared farm land.

Or just take the time to enjoy the cottage ambiance and its view from

the sunny veranda.

Special conditions: Dishes expected to be washed and put away. The stream is unfenced and young children need supervision. Smoking allowed outside only. Pets allowed with prior approval. Be aware of ladders to lofts. Shower and toilet inside but bush bath is outside beside stream. Washing machine and wifi broadband available at 100mts.

    It's extremely quiet, and mostly private except on the rare occasion when guests in the front house wander up the path.

    Ruru Cottage is beautifully situated - nestled near bush and close to the beach. We woke to the sound of native birds. The Cottage is well-equipped, very tidy and clean. We had a fabulous holiday and would definitely recommend this property. Thank you Jonathan and team!
