Kakariki is situated on the Waiohine River and backs on to the Taurarua Forest Park. It is an ideal base for tramping, bush walking, horse trekking, playing in the river, off road cycling or just relaxing.

The space
Kakariki is a delightful cabin with spectacular views. It is off grid but has alternative energy systems (solar/wind). Despite no town services it has all the facilities you need for a comfortable stay. It caters for 2 adults but can accommodate 2 additional children on fold out beds. Kakariki is set up for light meals/snacks with a BBQ if needed. We do not have wifi but full mobile phone coverage for Spark, 2degrees Vodafone which allows for hot spot use if needed. Hugh, Donna, Wee Angus (and Flora the dog) are your welcoming hosts who live on the property in a separate house. Your stay can be as private as wish or we can assist with ideas for activities for your stay.

Guest access
Kakariki has it's own outdoor flush toilet and shower, small kitchenette with tea and coffee, bar fridge with freeze box, queen size bed, fire box, cd player, dining table with linen and towels provided. A BBQ is available as well as an outdoor table/chairs and deck. The land provides forest walks with spectacular views.

Other things to note
We have bee hives on the land.
The full property is non smoking due to it being a forest setting and high fire risk.

Hugh, Donna, Wee Angus (and Flora the dog) live in the country where we love the quietness and beauty of the area but also the accessibility to town/city. We enjoy the outdoors, wholesome food, good movies, sport and being self reliant. We love guests who laugh, relax and treat life as a big adventure not to be taken too seriously.
