Enjoy the restorative tranquility of nature in this architecturally designed hideaway to rent on New Zealand's Coromandel Peninsula.

Mahakirau Sanctuary is a private 20 hectare property situated within a 600 hectare native forest estate. It offers spectacular views of Castle Rock, an old volcano core that rises above the bush on the backbone of the Coromandel range. Luxuriate in the hot tub under the stars, toast marshmellows over the fire and hear New Zealand's native owl, the Morepork, or our endangered kiwi calling.

Mahakirau Sanctuary is an architecturally-designed luxury home: a sophisticated take on the iconic New Zealand holiday hideaway. It cleverly incorporates sliding glass and aluminium louvre shutters giving the freedom of indoor-outdoor living and unadulterated views. The overhanging roof is matched with a generous surrounding deck providing shade in the summer and protection in the winter.

The design of the house is two connected pavilions – the main pavilion (comprising the master bedroom, living, dining, bathroom and library) and a guest pavilion with bedroom and ensuite. The house is furnished in a contemporary style in keeping with the minimalist architecture. The kitchen is well equipped and the entertainment system includes Bang & Olufson sound and comes with a wide selection of music, movies and iPod/iPhone connection.

Secluded Hot Tub: A large deck protrudes from the front of the house into the trees with outdoor table and seating. A short stroll from the house, privately nestled in the bush, is a hot tub with great views to the coast during the day, and spectacular views of the moon and stars at night.

Contemplation Deck: A meandering track descends from the front of the house to a contemplation deck and viewing platform looking out to Castle Rock that Rock that is perfectly located for watching kereru swooping up the valley.

Special conditions: Minimum stay is 4 nights. There are strict covenants on the property to protect the native birdlife and no pets (including cats) are permitted under any circumstances. 4WD vehicle is recommended for gravel roads on the 309 Road and our drive.

  • Amazing views

    Amazing views. Unfortunately we had bad weather and had to spend the weekend on 2 very uncomfortable couches.

    Staying at the mahakirau sanctuary was absolutely fanstastic. The bach was incredibly well designed and equipped. Every last thing had been thought of. We could not recommend the bach highly enough. Thank you.
