“Perfect Getaway in Perfect Location”
Reviewed January 26, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

So glad we found this beautiful place to spend the night. As soon as we arrived we immediately regretted not having longer to stay. Fantastic view from the upstairs balcony, just sit back and watch the beautiful sunset. The house has been lovingly built to make the most of the forest and hills surrounding it. There is a lovely aspect from every window and the cosy lounge looks out into the tops of the trees. A Well equipped kitchen with all your needs catered for and if you don't feel like cooking, you can have a delicious meal delivered to the door from Marie's ( highly recommend this) A short 5 minute walk through a forest path brings you out onto a beautiful beach and pancake rocks are just 3kms away. Brendan and Julie make you feel very welcome and give good advice on the local area and then leave you to enjoy this peaceful oasis. Just perfect!

“Beautiful peaceful surroundings with windows like pictures”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
person found this review helpful

Lovely stay at Wharepuni. Decided to stay in and have dinner from 'Marie's Kitchen'...a great choice. Marie delivers to your door and comes in and sets dinner up for you. The food was delicious.
The house is wonderful and well appointed. There is even wifi and a great bose sound system. As the day turned to dusk, the windows turned to picture frames, and we were surrounded by forest...very well designed. Perfect location!
So glad we stayed here!
