What You’ll Love…

Lavish luxurious surroundings in an opulent setting

Situated on a 3,500 acre working sheep and cattle farm this luxury country estate offers a glimpse of rural life. Rich in history, Wharekauhau originated as a sheep station as far back as the 1840’s and remains one of New Zealand’s oldest farms.  The ‘knock your socks off’ location of the lodge offers awe-inspiring views of the dramatic coastline on which it sits.  As you drive around the winding road to the lodge, you will catch your first glimpse of its magnificent white buildings contrasting against the lush green surroundings and mighty mountain range – Instantly awakening a level of excitement for your escape to a little piece of country paradise at this luxury estate.


A short walk from the main lodge takes you to your private entrance to your cottage suite.  Expertly designed the cottages have the feeling of absolute remoteness.  Positioned to provide complete privacy each cottage offers its own uninterrupted views of the incredible coastline. This is your own private haven in which you can indulge in luxury and escape from the outside world.

The cottage bi-fold doors open-up to the extensive farmland and its own private patio from which you can view the most spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

The joys of being in a remote location, free of populated light pollution, also provides the opportunity for an evening of spotting some of our famous light constellations. 

Farm to table is the philosophy at Wharekauhau Country Estate 

Included in your nightly rate with Wharekauhau is a four course trust the chef dinner;  evening pre-dinner drinks and canapés; as well as a full farmhouse breakfast daily.  


The exclusive location of the estate may inspire a desire to cocoon yourself away from the outside world and simply enjoy the variety of onsite services and facilities provided.

There is so much to do;

  1. hire bikes and explore the cycle trails;

  2. hike further into the Remutaka’s;

  3. race the ATV quad bikes across the black sand beach;

  4. try your hand at clay target shooting or archery;

  5. or cast a fishing line in the hope of reeling in a fish or two 

The estate has an indoor swimming pool with comfy soft loungers and large sliding glass doors opening to the outside garden area.  Perhaps combine a pool day with a lavish spa treatment at the onsite spa. 

You could spread your time between your cottage and the main lodge meeting other guests or perhaps finding a quiet corner to yourself.  The estate truly is a destination to escape to and relish in a luxurious sanctuary second to none.
