Private accommodation in the area

The Waihōanga Lodge has four separate bedrooms. These sleep four (2 bunks), ten (5 bunks), eight (4 bunks) and four (4 singles), respectively. In addition, all bookings also can use Chicken and Rooster huts, which each sleep two people (1 bunk bed in each hut). The lodge and huts included in the base package can therefore can sleep up to 30 people in shared accommodation. Two additional private cabins can sleep up to four each, making a total of 38 beds always available on site.
