Te Whare Ruruhau
Owhaoko, New Zealand
Enjoy complete immersion in nature and complete solitude; there are no roads, no people, no cell coverage, no stress. Just wild perfection.
Te Whare Ruruhau is a secluded cabin hidden in the remote New Zealand wilderness on exclusive Owhaoko ancestral lands. Owhaoko is a vast tract of held in a trust for the descendants of indigenous Maori who once walked the terrain. The area is virtually untouched and boasts a rich diversity of native flora and fauna. Only accessible by helicopter, a stay at this cabin is a privilege experienced by only a few.
Te Whare Ruruhau starts with an open-plan central living space with kitchen, dining and lounge areas opening onto the covered porch and spacious decks. On either side of the living space are the two double bedrooms, with every room positioned to take advantage of the amazing views and vistas.
Your expert host ensures everything is taken care of, from meals, lighting the fire, and keeping the space tidy, to sharing stories from Owhaoko people and land.
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
