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!!

Special conditions: $800 week off-peak Smoking outside only. Absolutely no dogs or cats.

  • I cannot stress enough how amazing this property is

    I cannot stress enough how amazing this property is. If you want to really 'get away' this is the place to go. Really homely and an amazing location. You will be surrounded by amazing country and bird noises. The outside bath is so good I'm going to make my own.

  • Very peaceful remote property with proper facilities

    Very peaceful remote property with proper facilities. Most basic supplies are in house. Very off grid so be prepared to sit back and read books, go for walks, do puzzles and cook big dinners!

    Awesome property for those who like (or don't mind) dealing with solar and generator systems, and get away from the crowd. Bush surrounds and pristine streams beat lying on a beach!
