Set on a large elevated section of native bush, surrounded by tree-tops, native birds and views out to the ocean, Whare Iti waits for you.

Whare Iti translates to 'small house' in Maori, but this holiday home is sure to pack a big punch. A private oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the busy holiday hotspot of central Tairua, and yet is only a 10-minute drive away.

The rural scenic landscapes, rolling hills, and ocean waters create a relaxing horizon to admire, but the interior of this home can't be ignored either. With a mix of stylish vintage furnishings and modern amenities against a backdrop of wooden panelling and exposed beams, there is something especially cosy and wonderful about this place!

Planning a romantic getaway? Well no matter the time of year, Whare Iti is the place to book.

In summer, explore the grounds of this property and discover the hidden outdoor heated bathtub, a few marked walking trails through the bush, and a hammock underneath a large Kanuka tree.

Then in winter, imagine sitting in the internal hammock swing in the lounge, lost in a good book or lighting a wood fire and sipping on a glass of wine looking out to the views.

Whare Iti can accommodate up to four guests, the main master bedroom is in the house itself, and an additional sleepout is available as well.

A 10-minute drive will have you in Tairua central if you need a good flat white or some supplies. Which also means, the beach is just 10-minutes away as well.

Discover your new Tairua happy place here at Whare Iti!

Excellent! Everything is ready there, so impressed with the kitchen equipment!

Stayed January 2021

This bach was an absolute gem! Would recommend this to anyone looking to a romantic weekend tucked away from any other baches. Very close to great beach spots and Tairua.
