Natural beauty and ecology

Welcome to the stunning Tawharanui Peninsula

Our slice of paradise.

Tawharanui regional park and surf beach is off the beaten track. That means it's exquisitely beautiful, dense with foliage and raw with power.

The regional park is predator free, so the area is rich with bird life, including species you seldom see elsewhere.

Its surf beach is popular with enthusiasts yet never crowded.

But you don't even have to go that far.

Koru Hideaway is more than just accommodation, it's an eco system.

Brian and Lindsay have planted over 300,000 trees as part of their mission to re-establish native bush and wetlands on the property and as a result, rare native birds have chosen to settle in the area.

There are short walking tracks on the property to explore the native bush and revegetation at different stages of establishment. There's also a walk to the top of the hill behind the house for panoramic views of the area.

If you're lucky, you can spot Pateke and North Island Robins and Bellbirds, Tui and Kaka are abundant.
