Te Whara

Te Whara at Kauri Mountain Point Estate

Te Whara at Kauri Mountain Point is located 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 and snorkel 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 for the day. Explore bush walks and enjoy stunning pacific ocean views wherever you look.

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

A large flat lawn area with in-ground trampoline, pool table and rope swings offers endless fun. In the right conditions, you can swim and snorkel in the inner 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. Fantastic property for one or two couples or small families with children aged 13 and up.

Catering available, please view options here.

Guest review:

“Te Whara was an unexpected gem and Paul the manager only added to the experience. We didn’t know anything about the area when we had booked and boy were we surprised by the beauty that greeted us. The house was clean, comfortable and airy and the grounds were breathtaking with a cliffside vista over the ocean and its many coves. This is perhaps one of the best overall experiences of our many while travelling NZ. Thank you again Paul for the hospitality.”
