Wharenui’s main house has five bedrooms, two living rooms and a kitchen / dining area, whilst a separate charming stone cottage sleeps a further four guests with two ensuite bedrooms and a lovely cosy living room with another fire place.
In the main house, the extremely spacious living room has a large roaring open fire, large entertainment system and a pool table, and enjoys gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains. There is also a separate cosy den with an additional open fire which offers a more intimate space for relaxing, reading or watching TV. The kitchen and dining area is the perfect place for families to come together, with a table large enough for the whole group to dine together. In summer, you can open up the french doors onto the terrace and dine under the pergola while you enjoy the late warm evenings next to the outdoor fireplace and admire the stars in this rural setting.
For our outdoor lovers, the property also has a swimming pool, tennis court, spa pool, an expansive lawn and bubbling stream. With so much outdoor space, the children will certainly never run out of space to play at this beautiful home!
Being such a large vacation rental, Wharenui is the perfect place for up to three families or a group of friends to share a special holiday or milestone in a beautiful rural setting.
Please note that this villa is not suitable for events or functions hosting more than the maximum 14 guests. There are also external CCTV cameras. These do not face towards the interior spaces and are turned off for guest use.
One of our favourite rustic, rural, resort-style homes – take a dip in the pool, play a few games of tennis, hang out by the BBQ, or snuggle up next to the roaring open fireplace, from check-in to check-out, it’s easy to stay at this home all day every day!
