  • Te Nikau is a wonderful retreat from busy lives

    Te Nikau is a wonderful retreat from busy lives. The beautiful architecture of this property is so unique. We loved how it was nestled among the native nikau palms, kohekohe and fern forest. Sitting in the outdoor spa pool listening to the nearby creek and native birds was just fabulous. Highly recommend a stay here!

  • Fantastic bach which the photos don't do justice

    Fantastic bach which the photos don't do justice. On the deck you feel like you're in the canopy of a forest yet you're 2 minutes away from waikanae. Awesome spa pool, open fire and high ceilings. It rained the whole weekend which was brilliant as it gave us an excuse not to leave this place!

  • This is a charming spot

    This is a charming spot. The bush surround is restful and the spa is wonderful! The bach interior has a cathedral-like ceiling space. It oozes peace and seclusion. Bathroom is downstairs from master bedroom, but it's handy to have a basin up on the master mezzanine space. (Note: Getting luggage to the house through gate and along the gravel paths wasn't an issue for us at all but could be if you were less agile!) WE had a wonderful time in this gorgeous bach! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thanks!
