Accommodation

Indulge in the luxury and comfort of Wharekauhau’s cottage suites, set high above the thunderous blue surf of Palliser Bay.

Whilst taking in the dramatic vistas, relax in absolute bliss and forget the outside world. Embrace nature with friendly sheep dotting the pastures outside your cottage and mountains shining against the sky. The gentle sound of the ocean is perfect ambiance as you watch a spectacular sunset. 

Make yourself at home, sinking into deep sofas and fluffy pillows in this private setting. Heated marbled floors and a fireplace keep your comfortable in all seasons, and enjoy our famous homemade cookies.

In true Wharekauhau style, natural materials are used throughout the cottage suites. Clay tiles, pebble mosaics, rich New Zealand wool carpeting, soft cotton linens and hemp curtains lend to the authentic atmosphere and genuine experience.
