The Wai Ngaio Retreat, with its ever changing Pacific Ocean views is a large lodge set back in the hill about 3kms from the isolated beach settlement of Otahome. Otahome is situated mid- way between the beach resorts of Castlepoint and Riversdale on the East Coast of the Wairarapa. It takes approx 45 minutes to drive here from Masterton.

The space
The retreat is an ex hunting and fishing lodge that has been refurbished to provide excellent accommodation for up to 20 persons and is furnished to a high standard with all the kitchen equipment you will need, including a dish washer.

Here you have the beach almost to yourselves, it is approx 5kms away by gravel road, only a few minutes drive. Enjoy walks along the beach, dipping your toes in the sea, rock pools or lagoons. You can fish from the beach, watch out for seals and even pick paua off the rocks at low tide! (3kms down the beach is the ideal spot for this - bring a quad bike for easier access).

The retreat has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large open plan living/dining area with separate kitchen. All beds and bunks are king single in size and have a fitted bottom sheet, pillow and pillow case. You must BYO sleeping bag or duvet and towels.

There are good disabled facilities with ramp access and a disabled bathroom. Not forgetting the huge flat screen TV/DVD with 'Freeview' for your entertainment. Private and peaceful, this is the perfect place for large family or friends groups to get together for some fun on the Wairarapa Coast!.

We are Carmen & Richard Tredwell - originally from the UK, now NZ citizens. We've lived in New Zealand for the past 17 years and love it. We live in a beautiful historic homestead that we've turned into a B&B and have two ornate holiday cottages all set in 20 acres of landscaped gardens. For seven months of the year (Oct - Apr) we run the 'Whareama Coastal Walk' from here - a fully catered 2 or 3 day walking experience over private farmland with isolated coastline views! So if you enjoy trekking, check us out. We enjoy having visitors come and share our 'little piece of paradise' here in the Wairarapa, on the East Coast of the North Island. We look forward to meeting you!
