Te Whara

Te Whara at Kauri Mountain Point Estate

Te Whara at Kauri Mountain Point is set on a spectacular, private, gated peninsula. Surrounded on 3 sides by the blue Pacific and the warmest waters in NZ. The property is perfect for water enthusiasts. Swim, kayak, fish or dive in the private cove. If just relaxing is more your style then grab one of the rock pads (bean bag) and settle in with a good book or bottle of wine!

Te Whara is a modern, sophisticated and serene space, with walls adorned with an impressive art collection – all adding to the ambiance. Very comfortable beds and quality linens all enhance your stay.

Family fun for all! A large flat lawn area with in-ground trampoline, pool table and rope swings offers endless fun. Fish, swim or kayak in the private cove.

Or perhaps just sit back in the sun loungers or wander around this spectacular estate to take in some of the best coastal views in New Zealand. This is your own very special private haven.

Catering available, please view options here.
