The lifestyle is one that embodies the geographic isolation, yet promotes community values, and farm-stead life. Whilst we recognise the lodge and farm are both separate commercial operations we also encourage the building of the ‘Wharekauhau community, and living the Wharekauhau Life!
Perhaps you came to Wharekauhau Lodge and spent a weekend wrapped-up cosy by the large fireplaces. After finding you fell so deeply in love with the rugged beauty of the estate you realized the estate had captured part of your soul and you just couldn’t dream of leaving!
…..Arriving to your residence for a long weekend and finding the gardens are looking perfect, and the house warm and cosy for your arrival – a real return home!
…..Starting the weekend right by booking a relaxing massage for first thing Saturday morning at the lodges Hauora Spa
…..Calling the lodge to seek advice from the in-house Sommelier as to what is the best wine match with your home cooked roast dinner.
…..Having friends and family around for the weekend and being able to book one of the estate activities through the lodge and show this magical part of the world to your nearest and dearest.
..... Being part of a private community that share many common values and love for the coastal/rural lifestyle
…..Reserving a table at the lodge for Sunday lunch then strolling back along the farm lanes to your private residence
The lifestyle of having a residence at Wharekauhau is much bigger than just having ‘bricks and mortar’ – you become part of something special – The Wharekauhau life!
