Funky Lodge - Kahuroa House

Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Nestled amongst the native forest at the foot of Kahuroa Mountain in the beautiful Kaiuma Bay, Kahuroa House is a purpose built bach/lodge designed to accommodate small groups or extended families. Only 30 minutes drive from the sleepy town of Havelock, this lodge is the perfect getaway for walking or cycling groups, fisher folk, groups of friends, or families.

Kahuroa House is a funky modern build boasting a native bush outlook through expansive glass, sea views from the deck and living spaces, large decks with outdoor fire and to top it off a hidden bath grotto set amongst tree ferns. Two sleeping pods are connected to the main building via a covered walkway, one pod with a queen bed, the other with two sets of bunks. Both pods have fridges, tea and coffee making facilities, and window seats with private views into the surrounding bush. The main building features a fully equipped kitchen, living space with cosy woodburner, mezzanine with sofa bed, and separate bedroom with king bed or two singles. The bathroom space is a joy to behold with two of everything including separate shower rooms. While able to sleep 10 by utilising the sofa bed, this is a bach of modest proportions and designed to create a quirky holiday vibe quite different to your normal day to day living.

The Kaiuma Bay boat ramp and jetty, a mere 500m from the property, is ideal for launching your boat, swimming, kayaking or throwing a rod in with the kids. The Nydia track, popular with both walkers and mountain bikers, starts or finishes at Kaiuma Bay and can be accessed directly from this property. Our residence is next door to Kahuroa House and with our local knowledge of the region we're right there to assist in making sure your holiday in Kaiuma Bay is a memorable one.

With a host of short walking tracks, native bush and small streams to cool off in at the doorstep, or simply relax and unwind in this bespoke lodge, Kahuroa House is the perfect place to hide-away.
Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include bathtubs or showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Slice of heaven
The house is absolutely beautiful. It does not feel like a home that was made a batch but it feels like a getaway that was purpose built. We had a lovely time and stayed put most of it, just relaxing in front of the fireplace.

Gorgeous Bach
We all absolutely loved staying here- beautiful views, warm and well built bach with huge windows to take advantage of the views. Pizza oven was fun and the other outdoor fire a real treat, also the bath in the woods. Do make sure you stock up on food and supplies before arriving though as it's a 30 minute drive back to havelock-plus you won't want to leave. There's a 2-3h loop walk through the forest close by too which we enjoyed.

Stunning bach
Beautifully designed bach in a stunning natural setting. Loved the pizza oven, outdoor bath, swing seats and beautifully framed views. Great place for an extended family to stay. Could have used a few more surfaces to put things on and a slightly bigger kitchen but these were just details. Thank you for having us stay.
