About this listing
Award winning private hideaway inside Waiaro Sanctuary. Pristine native forest, untouched streams and all the privacy and peace you could want
Outdoor bath with amazing view, hammocks beneath the trees.
Waiaro won 2015 "Best Eco" in local award for holiday rental "bach" in NZ.
The bush in the area is in great condition and is bordered by the Coromandel Forest Park, and you can walk from the door right to the summit of Moehau if you are intrepid.
But the best wildlife and forest is near the streams within Waiaro Sanctuary itself and you can see a lot by lying in the hammock by the stream and letting it come to you, or sitting on the deck with a cold glass.
You have 200 acres of bush to wander around without crossing a boundary, and when you do you won't see a fence anyway.
The whole house is for your use and there are 200 acres of grounds, mostly forest. No fences.
Interaction with guests
I am very happy to discuss Waiaro and surrounds with you. Since you will be enjoying the house I will not be on site when you are. My neighbour keeps an eye on the place for me and he can give advice on site if you need. He can also take you for a guided walk through the sanctuary for a small "koha".
Other things to note
The house is completely off-grid i.e. no phone, mobile, data, or mains electricity. Waiaro runs on solar power and hot water with gas stove and fridge/freezer. The fire also heats the water and there is a generator should the batteries run dry. This does mean you may need to think more about your power use etc. than in a normal homes. If this sort of thing doesn't suit you then you may find other "on-grid" places more suitable.
I will send you a "user guide" to let you know more about the house and area.
You need to clean the house before you go. If you want to just pack and leave we can arrange cleaning for an extra $60. If you are coming from abroad and want us to provide sheets, pillowcases, towels we can do this but you need to let us know.
All footwear to be sprayed on arrival to protect our trees from Kauri dieback disease.
Waiaro is a sanctuary so strictly no hunting, eeling or fishing.
Sorry, no pets allowed to protect the local resident wildlife.
