OUNUWHAO is a unique, heritage, heart Kauri homestead, relocated from the West Coast, opened in 1992, after extensive restoration. Our Guestlodge looks directly to Matauwhi Bay, a sheltered anchorage for yachts, and alongside a grassed reserve, bordered by 80 year old Norfolk pine trees. Wrap-Around verandahs allow guests to sit and relax and take-in the tranquil waters of the Bay, whilst enjoying complementary afternoon tea/supper or a glass of wine/beer. Four luxurious guest rooms with ensuites, claw-foot baths and separate showers, are decorated in traditional wall papers and tiles; featuring hand-crafted patchwork quilts and offers every home comfort, whilst enjoying the best of linens and modern bathrooms. Seperate GARDEN SUITE (the A La Carte one) offers s/king bed with spa bath and private verandah over-looking the cottage gardens and roses in summer-time. No cooking facilities, but with sink, bench, fridge and micro-wave for a simple meal or snack.Breakfast is included. WELCOME each new day with a delicious home cooked breakfast like no other: Fresh juice, Bircher Muesli, fresh seasonal fruits from our orchard/organic gardens, freshly baked bread/muffins, jams from our orchard trees, freshly percolated coffee and teas, followed by a YUMMY daily special. Ounuwhao is a great spot to investigate Russell and the greater Bay Of Islands area.
