Exclusive Use

Dreaming of the ultimate holiday accommodation? Wharekauhau Country Estate can offer exclusive use of the property to give you all the privacy you need or to house your entire party for a special occasion such as your wedding, corporate retreat or family reunion. 

Exclusive use includes 16 Cottage Suites, and 1 Security Room. If your party needs further accommodations we can add on the Owners Cottage (at an additional fee). 

Due to our limited size we have added additional requirements for any exclusive use during the Festive Summer rate season. All buy outs in this period must be a minimum of 2 nights, and all buy outs include the Owners Cottage.

All exclusive use bookings are governed by a mutually signed agreement between Wharekauhau Country Estate and the party utilizing the estate.

Our secluded retreat is perfect for reconnecting with family members and friends and enjoying everything we have to offer. Please contact us to arrange your special holiday.
