Tui Ridge is situated up a long treelined driveway, surrounded by Kiwifruit and Avocado orchards.

'The Ark' is nestled in a large quiet garden setting with views to the Kaimai Ranges. Hand built in the shape of an upside down ark, it's cosy and warm over winter and cool in the summer.

Separate guest kitchen/dining and lounge area with free Wifi

The bathroom is a short distance from The Ark.

In the garden there is an summer house with a hammock to relax with a book which also can be used for BBQ cooking.

With a backdrop of the Kaimai Ranges there is lots of short walks and tramps within a 10 minute drive.

Close by also is waterfalls, hot water swimming pools and giant Kauri trees. Lots of harbour access to launch small boats and safe swimming is also within a short drive.

We are a easy 2 hour drive from Auckland airport. The beautiful Coromandel is within driving distance. Rotorua is just over an hour drive away and Hobbiton is also close by.

Other accomodation options are available at Tui Ridge please check these out under my other listings.

Special conditions: Dogs allowed but must be kept on a lead at all times, we have a kennel/dog run available for guest use. We prefer that dogs sleep either in the kennel or your car. A $30 refundable 'Poo' bond is required on arrival. This will be used if your dog fouls and it is not picked up. We have children that play outside so this is a health and safety measure

  • Great little set up and very affordable

    Great little set up and very affordable. If you stay you almost definitely need a car and some insect repellent.

  • Hidden cabin in behind fruit orchards

    Hidden cabin in behind fruit orchards. The garden is fantastic with a hammock to chill out and the views from the gardens edges are just amazing. Very convenient location between the Coromandel and Tauranga with plenty of hiking day trips to be done. Will be back to do more next time. Thanks
