Accommodation in nature: private cottage, lakeside yurt

Looking for accommodation in Northland’s native bush? Wai Rua offers something completely different: a selection of accommodation options with privacy, a high standard of quality, and a touch of luxury. The Wai Rua landscape is a private oasis of quietly flowing streams, large peaceful lakes, towering native forests and awe-inspiring ancient rock formations; all tucked away in a hidden pocket of land off the beaten track. While you may feel completely off-map while you are with us, in reality we are only a 20-minute drive from Whangarei; making us one of the most easily accessible nature escapes in Northland.

Choose from our range of beautifully-designed accommodation options, all with their own private access and all located right here in the heart of nature: Wai Rua Escapes.
