Welcome to Kereru Country Estate - fifty sprawling acres of paddocks and native bush with sea views to the west and Mount Taranaki to the east. Accommodation is an architecturally designed house privately positioned at the end of a kilometre long driveway, yet within five minutes drive of Oakura village and it’s amenities.

The house is built completely from recycled timbers taken from the property and river stones gathered from the Oakura river. The design ethos of the property has been to use natural materials to ensure the building sits unobtrusively within the environment and features pure wool carpets, slate, recycled pine, macrocapa and unique copper surrounds in the showers.

A central heating system, including underfloor heating and a wood stove keep the house warm in winter while bi-fold doors opening out on to a sheltered deck will keep you cool in summer. For those wanting to keep fit we have a home gym, equipped with Life Fitness cross trainer, and a range of free weights and other exercise equipment.

Outside the property features an entertainment area and it’s own frontage on to the Oakura river, complete with deep water hole and a sandy bank to sunbathe on.

The local village of Oakura has an excellent beach safe for swimming, surfing, paddle boarding, windsurfing and fishing. Oakura itself has a petrol station, bottle store, pub, pharmacy, hair dressing salon, beauty spa, a well-equipped 4 Square and a range of cafes, including the excellent Kin & Co. Drive 15 minutes north and you will reach the city of New Plymouth and it’s various attractions including The Govett Brewster Art Gallery and Len Lye Centre, Pukekura Park, Puke Ariki Museum and the coastal walkway. The world reknown Pukeiti gardens are a short drive away while the historic Koru Pa, one of the first Maori settlements in Taranaki is directly on our doorstep.

Matthew and Tari are your hosts and live in a neighbouring property so will be close at hand should you require any help
