Please be warned that if you book "Miro" from Havenz Punakaiki, you are NOT going to be staying in a tree house! The Tree House is made up of 4 apartments and if you book Miro, you will have wheelchair access into a dark, slightly damp space and your forest outlook will in fact be 3 parked cars. We have...

Ground floor room of this property should not be used as it smells bad due to a humidity. Problem gets even worth after you take a shower as humidity cannot get out and all windows get foggy. Room would be ok without this point having all things necessary to cook and pass the night, however the foul smell is overbearing.

The room was clean, the bed was comfy. The towels were good. There were facilities to make some sort of meal. The room smelt mouldy and unaired, there was mould on the curtains. The ensuite facilities were flimsy. The deck needed a good power wash. We daren't open the windows because of the bitey flies. A most disappointing stay that... More

When we arrived there was no instruction how to get the key. After informing at a restaurant and calling the accommodation we could get our key with a canoe company with the same name. The man which give us the key was very friendly but did drink a little too much in our opinion. After we go the key we... More

We sadly only stayed for one night in the Treehouse. We had the upstairs room at the back. (Nikau) The room was clean, spacious, with a full kitchen, which was nice. We had a lovely balcony, where we sat in the " middle of the jungle". The Truman Track is reachable from the path of the Treehouse and leads to... More

For our next-to-last night in New Zealand, this "treehouse" room was a great way to top it off. The space was surrounded by tree ferns and bush, and the pounding surf was close enough to lull us to sleep. The room seemed brand new, and the spacious balcony was too good to pass up for a liesurely breakfast and second... More

Nice accomodations. Plenty of space for our two couples. Full kitchen facility. Great sunset view. Margaret This was a vacation house. It's about 1 km from the office where you check in. The bed was good and we slept well. Jim

We stayed for one night in the Rata treehouse towards the end of our South Island tour. Even though it doesn't come with the modern distractions like TV, internet, etc the kids thoroughly enjoyed the place. We occupied ourselves with the board games provided and spent quality time together. Be careful of the sandflies though. There are no screens as... More

We were looking forward to our stay at Havenz, but we found the house to be a bit run down and the beds uncomfortable. The views were wonderful, but the house got very hot and we couldn;t open the windows because there were no fly screens and the sand flies would come in and feast on us. It was a... More
