Beautiful whare above the beach. Amazing view of the harbour and the dunes on the other side. A treat to watch the tide come in and out. House is well equipped with quality linen, kitchenware and a great bbq and outdoor area. Was a treat to be able to bring our dog. Thanks for having us.

Private and restful, fantastic view
Ruru Whare is an extremely lovely place to stay - very well organized, clean and comfortable. From the whare there is a spectacular view across Aotea harbour to the sand dune on the northern shores. Beach walks in either direction take you past some very lovely bush and birdlife, and from the deck on the front of the whare you can watch from a distance while the locals occasionally come and go with their beach buggies and boats. Everyone is very friendly, waving as they go by. The kitchen is modern and well stocked with all necessary equipment, and the bathroom is spacious and styley. Thanks Annette for our lovely holiday!

Ruru Whare Wonderful
Perfect location for a summer holiday, everything you need at hand, Annette was a wonderful host, easily approachable and friendly, the house is well equipped, great views but private at the same time. Jack (our dog) is still exhausted from his holiday. Didn't want to leave but will return.
