Mahoe Cabin


Mahoe Cabin is located in the Waikato, 17 minutes from Morrinsville, 1 hour and 35 minutes from Auckland City, or 35 minutes from Hamilton City.

It's set on a 27 acre protected bush block, complete with wetlands, and beautiful native trees including Kauri, Manuka, Totara, Ribbonwood, Titoki - and many other species of trees in various forms of maturity.

The cabin consists of a fully enclosed bedroom with a simple but lovely interior. Nordic spruce lines the walls and beautiful natural linens and fibres adorn the bed. 

Directly outside the bedroom is an outdoor living and kitchen area. An outdoor fire with a mini bread/pizza oven is the perfect place to sit in the evening and watch the birds flitting through the wetlands. The spacious bathroom is next to the bedroom and accessed via the deck.

Mahoe Cabin is the ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and get a much-needed dose of nature. Native frogs and freshwater crayfish live in the various streams and wetlands on the property. Tui, fantails and Moreporks are regular visitors. Tucked into this peaceful and secluded spot, your everyday worries will seem far away...

  • Your hosts

    Your hosts at Mahoe Cabin are Ron and Jax, son Tristan, Winston the German shepherd and a cat named Hops.

    Ron and Jax have owned and lived on the property since 2014. They bought the property purely to support and continue to regenerate the bush that covers it. They plant 200-300 native trees a year on their land. The wetlands mean that the protected bush block is a significant natural feature. Since moving in and restoring the ponds, they are delighted that native frogs and crayfish have returned, along with a substantial increase in the native birdlife.

    Jax and Ron love living in this part of the world. Tauhei is a tiny village with a school and hall, and even though it is close to towns and cities, the dramatic hills and bush surrounds make it feel secluded and remote.

    Jax works full time as a Forecasting Analyst and Ron is a director of Electrify.NZ, a specialist electric bike store, which he founded with his best friend in 2015. They are now nationwide with 8 stores across the country.

    Both Jax and Ron are nature enthusiasts, with Jax a self-confessed glamper rather than a camper... Mahoe Cabin is a result of their love of immersing themselves in nature but still having those home comforts.

    Mahoe Cabin is named for the native mahoe tree which surrounds the cabin.
