Off grid house inside Waiaro Sanctuary. 200 acres of pristine native forest, untouched streams and all the privacy and peace you could want within a managed wildlife sanctuary. Recognised by Environment Waikato as the most important private ecological site in Waikato/Coromandel Peninsula.

Has resident kiwi, woodpigeon, bellbird, kaka, brown teal, etc. plus streams full of happy native fish.

Outdoor bath with amazing view, hammocks beneath the trees, and two big decks to relax on at the house.

Comfortable 4 bedroom solar-powered off-grid house with 4 bedrooms. Beds are 1 Queen, 2 x Double, 3 x single + 1 trundle bed. Large flat parkland for ball games, frisbee, croquet, etc.

No hunting, fishing or eeling in the Sanctuary - plenty of fish in the sea close at hand if you need them. Also absolutely no dogs as Kiwi are close by.

An escape from phones, noise, and the madding crowd. Unique.

IMPORTANT: Kauri die-back disease is killing Kauri in Auckland and Northland. We do not have this disease in Coromandel. It is spread (they think) by footwear. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE scrub all shoes you bring up to our sanctuary. Do not be the one to kill Coromandel's Kauri. It is not worth the risk. Scrub them even if they are clean. THANKS!!

  • The farm track from the road was rough but negotiable

    The farm track from the road was rough but negotiable. The house itself was cosy and comfortable. The environment is serene and conducive to total relaxation.

    Beautiful but very remote, with the upside that you cannot get bothered by your phone! Wonderful base for a fishing trip or just to chill out.

  • Very unique location on Coromandel

    Very unique location on Coromandel. But it is really worth to stay there. Everything in the house worked well and don't miss the outdoor bath and enjoy the view...

  • Love the secluded nature of the place

    Love the secluded nature of the place. Has a few quirks but it's a perfect getaway spot for a family or couple who likes a rustic spot in the middle of nowhere. Really enjoyed our stay. Be aware that the road in is a little rough for small sedans, especially after rain. Loved taking a day trip up to Port Jackson. What a great area!
