Description

  • We now have a second bedroom called the bunkhouse which can sleep up to 5 people
  • Plenty of outside space for children and adults alike.
  • We offer bird watching tours for adults who like us share a passion for our native flora and fauna.

A peaceful rural location suitable for families who enjoy the natural world. Varied bird life with many bush and beach walking opportunities. We are not a camping ground in that you hire all three cabins (converted railway wagons); one with the facilities in it and two bedroom units suitable for 2 couples or a larger family. Our landscaped grounds are available for guests to explore and enjoy.

If you love the countryside you will love staying at Te Rakau.

For cyclists on the Rimutaka Cycle Trail we are approx 30 kms south of Cross Creek.

We can also take you on fully guided half or full day bird watching tours for those who want to explore the area in more depth and learn about the bush, wetlands and coastal birds around us. The cost for these tours is $100 pp for 1/2 day tour and $180 pp for a full day tour.

Special conditions: While pets are welcome we insist that they are under control at all times and that they be kept outside the cabins on the deck. Please let us know when you book if you are bringing a dog. For cyclists we are willing to supply food for self cook dinners, continental breakfasts and supplies for a packed lunch @ $60pp.

    In one of the North Island's most beautiful situations, we stayed in these charming and historic railway cabins, expertly converted into warm, comfortable accommodation. If you like something different without compromising comfort, then this is for you.
