Just 2 km away is Cherry Grove, a local park where two rivers meet - the Whanganui and Ongarue - a lovely spot to picnic (a bbq is available) and swim (as with any river it is important to watch for current)

In the local township you will find all the basics you need including a Supermarket (open 7 days a week from 0700-2030 hr) and a pharmacy (open 0830-1700 Monday to Friday and 0930-1230 on a Saturday)

You would have to travel a long way to find:
- a better cafe than Zar'z (111 Hakiaha St)
- a better Thai restaurant than Jasmines (43 Hakiaha St)
- better fish and chips than at the Golden Kiwi (2 Marae St)

There are some wonderful day trips available, please just ask

I never imagined it would happen, but I have left the 'crazy' of Auckland to settle in a wonderful little town in the middle of all the beauty NZ has to offer...and I am loving every minute of the peaceful country surrounds. Now I want to share it with others! My precious family (grown and living around the world), along with my love of travel, community, music and handcrafts are just some of the aspects that keep life full and fun. I look to be guided by guest needs and when not on site, I will be available by phone/ text.
