Tarata Eco Retreat

Kawhia Harbour, Waikato

Tarata Eco Retreat is set on the edge of Kawhia Harbour in Te Waitere. It's about 1 hour and 30 minutes drive from Hamilton, and 2 hours and 45 minutes from Auckland City. 

Set on a bush covered hillside, the cabin enjoys stunning views of the beautiful Kawhia Harbour.

The little cabin has been lovingly renovated into the ultimate glamping retreat. With an outdoor kitchen, bathroom and extensive outdoor living spaces - you'll feel immersed in nature. The cosy, enclosed bedroom has large glass windows and doors - connecting you to the outdoors. The interior decor is stylish and restful.

Many hours can be spent relaxing on the deck and watching the tides move in and out during the day. Explore the native bush and pine forest on the property - and spot the kereru that make it their home. A small stream runs through the small ravine and if you're lucky - you may even see a few glowworms hiding on the banks. 

Tarata Eco Retreat is a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of life - and a truly peaceful place to rest and rejuvenate.
