Wairunga is a 700 acre sheep and beef farm owned by the Parker family for almost 100 years. The accommodation is two adjacent cottages that are comfortably set up for up to 16 guests.

Wairunga also hosts a golf course, where stands of native trees, stunning views and mobs of Romney ewes make it a interesting nine holes. Green fees $10

In summer swim in our pool, play tennis an a grass court, dance in the bush grotto (bring your iPod) or take a walk in Mohi Bush.

We can also show you around parts of the farm and enjoy answering any questions you have about what we do, and demonstrate how to shear a sheep on request!

**Dogs are welcome on the proviso that they are fully wormed and vaccinated.

Why You Will Love Wairunga Cottages

Because it is a lovely part of Hawkes Bay that is quite undiscovered. People like the native bush, plus the sea view from the golf course.

There is peace and quiet but also the chance to have fun in the bush grotto with the dance floor. You can be as active or as relaxed as you want to be.

- "NZ country lifestyle. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a getaway and unplug from city life."
- "Lovely place to go and relax and unplug from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our hostess Paulette was lovely. The children really enjoyed their trips with her to feed the chickens and to help collect eggs. Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality shown to all. It was definitely a memorable weekend for all the right reasons!"
- "What can I say, what a fantastic weekend! The hospitality was outstanding, Paulette really goes the extra mile, so friendly & helpful! The cottages are set up in the hills in a beautiful remote & private location in Maraetotara. There's a stunning waterfall to visit on the way (take your sneakers, togs & towel). We wish we had a day to spend at the Cottages to explore the golf course, tennis court & entertaining areas more! The cottages have plenty of room for large groups with a bathroom for every room! We loved the massive dining table, music for indoors & out plus a bbq. We highly recommend a stay here!"
