Kia Ora, Our home Whare Rakau (tree house) is surrounded by beautiful rainforest and native trees. Just a 7minute walk or short drive to the township, restaurants and other attractions. Enjoy the beautiful sound of birds, animals or the rain on the roof. On a clear night you can enjoy beautiful dark skies full of stars. We can help with information and bookings.
We welcome guests to use all parts of our house, we have a shared kitchen, lounge and our side covered seating area. The Kereru room is a Queen room and a shared bathroom.
We have guitars if you would like to play them.
Takoha is Maori and can korero te Reo Maori ( talk the Maori language( she can help you with translations or information on New Zealand and its history
Our house isn't on maps currently so can be a little difficult to find, We are at the far end of Cron street, straight past the hot pools, then past the medical centre until you see our red Maori Pau (red carving) then turn right up our drive.
We are a young couple, Simon is English and Takoha is Maori. We have travelled round New Zealand but came back to Franz Josef after we missed the rain forest and the west coast. We want to host to show people what a beautiful place it is. We are a relaxed couple and are happy to have people around and spend time with us, however if you want your own space we are happy with that.
