    “Beautiful, comfortable stay with little extras like table tennis and the huge space outside the back gate.”

    Would have been perfect if their was a AC unit though, it got very hot during the night and the day.

The property

Nestled next to the picturesque Ruakākā River, you will find this modern three-bedroom home, designed with style and comfort in mind. Welcome to Ruakākā River Retreat! Surrounded by native flora and fauna, this Ruakākā holiday home offers the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and instead enjoy the fabulous outdoor living, with a good book and cool beverage in the sunshine. Warm and welcoming, this Ruakākā accommodation has space and privacy for everyone. The main living space is comfortable, open-plan, and equipped with all the entertainment essentials, including a Smart TV where you can use your own logins to access Netflix, and complimentary WiFi is on hand to stay connected with family and friends. The kids will also love the table tennis table for a bit of competitive fun. On a mid-winter getaway, turn on the electric heating for a cosy ambience as you sip on a hot cuppa, or during a summer stay, you’ll love the seamless indoor-outdoor flow onto the deck to enjoy a delicious BBQ feast with a few sides whipped up in the fully equipped kitchen. You’re sure to get a good night's rest at Ruakākā River Retreat. Three bedrooms sleep up to six guests, with two bathrooms and a washing machine completing the setup for your stay. Ruakākā is filled with natural beauty to be explored. If you're bringing your own paddle board or kayak you can launch it right on your doorstep. Enjoy a stroll or dip at Ruakākā Beach a four-minute drive away from home, or treat yourself to a massage at Body Warrant eight minutes away by car. You’re just a quick 3-minute drive, or 10-minute walk down the river to the Ruakākā town centre, top-up on supplies at Fresh Choice, or for some good old Kiwi fish and chips stop into Bream Bay takeaways. Further afield, drive 14 minutes to the historical Waipu, discover the museum and galleries here, and you must try the famous Pizza Barn for a tasty meal and brew. Simply relax and unwind on your next Ruakākā escape, here at Ruakākā River Retreat!

As the property has direct access to the river, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
