.. is at Whanarua Bay, about half way between Opotiki and Gisborne on SH 35. Yes, it's one of those places you've always wanted to go but have never gotten around to it.
Now is a really good time to shift that reticence and Book.
ARUHE is nestled into the very edge of Raukumara National Forest. The cottage is surrounded by ancient Puriri inhabited by Kereru, Bellbirds and Tui. It overlooks the Pacific Ocean, seen through enormous Pohutukawa which flower abundantly and stunningly between November and December. Neither of the two dwellings on the property can be seen from the main road and the cottage is separated from my house by bush. It is private, tranquil and perfect for the couple who just want to kick back and relax.
The cottage is open plan and is ideal for two people.
The base price of $220.00 is for one or two people sharing a bed. A third is welcome but not recommended for long term stays. However, as this is a no-frills/no hidden costs website it isn't possible to add an "extra fee". There is an extra charge of $80 to have the sofa bed made up so if this is your preference, then I suggest you book on Airbnb or my website.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or concerns. I may not always be right beside the telephone but I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Things to do
If you're feeling strenuous the beach is just a 10-minute walk away or you could climb the hill behind the cottage. There is also a walk to a terrific waterfall ideal for a refreshing swim. Brrrrr. Short drives will take you to other interesting spots and kainga along SH 35.
Go here to check out a 360* interior video of the cottage.
By the way.....the laundry and the carpark are the only shared areas at Motuaruhe.
Some Reviews from Guests
Kim welcomes us into her beautiful cottage. Her fast replies and accurate directions were spot on. The extra touches made our weekend getaway that much more special! We will be back! The location perfect!!
I had a wonderful stay at Kim’s place. The location is amazingly relaxing & a great place to get away from it all. You have everything you need in the chalet, which is lovely and clean. The bacon & eggs for breakfast was a very welcome surprise. Thank you Kim for your hospitality, I wish I could have stayed longer!
Kim’s place is truly spectacular! The photos don’t do it justice. From the sweet personal touches to the tranquil energy the property has this place is an absolute steal! I hope to visit again, that’s for sure.
A truly magical experience. Wonderful host who had thought of every detail and very friendly. Cannot rate high enough!
