For simple yet sleek country accommodation less than an hour from Wellington and only a few minutes from the beach, look no further than the three-bedroom Bunkhouse at The Lodge Te Horo.

Remember the days of school camp, where you explored the great outdoors, played games and shared stories into the late evening, fought over the top bunk, and ate your breakfast in the morning sun wondering what the day had in store for you? Well, a stay here at The Bunkhouse is set to take you right back there, but this time it's going to be a whole lot more comfortable!

Wake up in the morning, whip up breakfast in the dine-in kitchen, and then head out to explore! Go on an adventure to the beach or hit up one of the many trails just a short drive north at Otaki Forks.

When you come home, a cosy living space awaits! The heat pump will keep you at just the right temperature while you put your feet up on the couch, and the WIFI and TV offer entertainment options for the whole family.

Come night time, three tastefully decorated bedrooms each feature a set of bunks and a door out to the covered patio. The bunks in each room have a single on top and either a king single or double on the bottom, offering sleeping options for almost any group. And the separate shower and toilet provide that extra little bit of convenience come the morning.

The Bunkhouse rests on an immaculately kept lifestyle block and is perfectly positioned to enjoy rural views in the afternoon sunshine. Expansive lawns mean you can stage your very own game of backyard cricket, finishing up the match in style with a few sausages on the BBQ and well deserved cold bevvy!

The Bunkhouse is just two minutes drive from the small township of Te Horo. It’s only a 10-minute drive north to Otaki for eateries, a supermarket, outlet shopping, and the beautiful Otaki Beach, and for a beach a little closer and quieter, Te Horo Beach is only six minutes drive west.

Highly recommended and just 200m from The Lodge Te Horo is one of New Zealand's top cooking schools, owned by renowned caterer Ruth Pretty. Book in for a masterclass, or visit the Garden Room, a glass covered outdoor area serving delightful morning and afternoon teas.

Pack up the car and take a roady to Te Horo, The Bunkhouse is waiting for you!

Peaceful and relaxing place to stay.

Stayed March 2022

Loved the bunk house. The beds were comfortable and it was a lovely addition to have with the house. Fantastic weekend !

Stayed December 2021

We enjoyed our stay, it was a lovely setting and spot but we were surprised that there was one toilet roll for 3 people for 3 days and we were shocked that there was a security camera inside the house aimed at the bathroom area that also had no blinds for privacy. There was a sign that there were security cameras around the outside of the property but we certainly didn't expect to have the feeling of being watched on our family holiday inside the house.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review, Jo! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the location of The Bunkhouse. We're sorry to hear that not enough supplies of toilet paper were provided as this isn't normally the case. Sufficient supplies are meant to be provided for every booking and we've made sure this is done. Regarding the cameras, we've looked into this with the property owner and local team and they confirmed there are certainly no security cameras inside this property at all. There is a motion sensor in the main area which activates when the alarm is on (while there are no guests) but no cameras located in the interior, so our guests privacy is always preserved.

The booking process was easy, the accommodation met my expectations, and overall, it was a great experience. Thank you, Bachcare.

Stayed November 2020

We had a group of six friends stay at The Bunkhouse. It was spotlessly clean and generally well appointed; the beds are particularly comfortable being VERY sturdily built into the walls (so no squeaking). It is not a full kitchen more of a kitchenette without an oven. While there are nice plates/bowls there are no serving platters or a dishrack. The kitchen/lounge area is actually quite small and there are limited areas for relaxing as a large group...therefore you'd want good weather to make use of the lovely outdoor areas. A good place for a weekend getaway in warmer months.
