fantastic venue and great hosts dave and nuala. They worked with us to help create a wonderful family event. offering as much or as little support as you need. The facilities are perfect for medium to large gatherings with semi commercial kitchen in the lodge, making it easy. Not to mention spectacular views

It was a night full of west coast weather drama. These villas are so sturdily built that we felt absolutely safe, despite the raging 100km winds outside. Wonderful vistas outside, and loved the recycled timber used for the interior. For those after a romantic escape its the perfect spot, but get the last villa on the right facing the sea... More

Go no further, as I always stay here when visiting New Plymouth. I have paid the same amount for something right in New Plymouth and got claustrophobia in one minute walking into accomodation. At Ahu Ahu Villas, I am inclined to spend more time with my children as it is right next to the beauty of the beach, rock pools,... More

We stayed here on a recent trip to New Zealand and Taranaki for business and I was delighted with the villas, their location and of course the charasmatic Dave who owns the place. The 4 villas are located on a rise overlooking the Tasman, and of course the famous surf. They are eclectic in their design but so comfortable and... More

The view out to sea from the Lodge patio was gorgeous as was the look of surprise on the face of my birthday boy! Especially when Precision Helicopters flew in and whisked him and the boys away for a scenic flight up the coast and over the summit of Mt Taranaki. Topped off with a stunning sunset dinner with guests... More

Was a wonderful stay and the owners are lovely too! Everything was very clean and the design was modern. Beautiful view over the see and not to far from New plymouth. Unfortunately we stayed only for one day but could imagine myself here for a week! They also have space to make your own fire and watch the stars!

The Lodge was perfect for us and our dog. An impressive piece of architecture in a stunning spot. Great kitchen, very private with mesmerising views. At the wild end of Oakura beach. There is a lot to see in Taranaki, but it was hard to leave to see any of it.

From the beach views to the fire pit to the spacious comfort of the villas, Ahu Ahu is an amazing place to stay. Everything that is good about Taranaki comes in one package, whether it's seeing Paritutu in the distance, strolling across the black volcanic sands, enjoying a sunset from hidden benches, or just chatting with Ahu Ahu's friendly and...
