Description

Te Rakau Bunkhouse is a converted railway carriage that contains 1 queen sized bed, 1 single bed and a set of bunks. The Cookhouse is a separate facility with gas cooking and everything you need to enjoy your stay. Our outdoor gas shower is both efficient and different. There's an outdoor bath to enjoy and relax in while looking at the stars.

A covered deck area with elevated views allows guests to spend time watching the birds and other animals close by.

Evenings around an outdoor fire can also be enjoyed.

Close to the Palliser Bay coast and a unique wetland area, there are many walks available.

  • We totally loved our mini break to the Te Rakau Bunkhouse

    We totally loved our mini break to the Te Rakau Bunkhouse. The highlights included the bird life, outdoor bath, feeling of isolation, and sunsets. Nothing negative to add!

  • This was the perfect place to see in the new year

    This was the perfect place to see in the new year. The outdoor area with the bath, used as a cold bath in the heat and a hot bath in the evening.. the outdoor fire, fairy lights, it was just what we were looking for. A real getaway from the city. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

  • Comfortable, welcoming place to stay on the cycle trail

    Comfortable, welcoming place to stay on the cycle trail. A beautiful spot. The hosts are the sorts of people we need more of, planting trees for the bird life to thrive. Will definitely stay again.
