Tui Ridge is situated up a long treelined driveway, surrounded by Kiwifruit and Avocado orchards.
'The Ark' is nestled in a large quiet garden setting with views to the Kaimai Ranges. Hand built in the shape of an upside down ark, it's cosy and warm over winter and cool in the summer.
Separate guest kitchen/dining and lounge area with free Wifi
The bathroom is a short distance from The Ark, located in the garage.
In the garden there is an summer house with a hammock to relax with a book which also can be used for BBQ cooking.
With a backdrop of the Kaimai Ranges there is lots of short walks and tramps within a 10 minute drive.
Close by also is waterfalls, hot water swimming pools and giant Kauri trees. Lots of harbour access to launch small boats and safe swimming is also within a short drive.
We are a easy 2 hour drive from Auckland airport. The beautiful Coromandel is within driving distance. Rotorua is just over an hour drive away and Hobbiton is also close by.

Such a cute place to stay, everything you need is provided. Lots of great walks to do that the dogs loved. Very clean and tidy, the whole property was just beautiful. We had a great time.
Hidden cabin in behind fruit orchards. The garden is fantastic with a hammock to chill out and the views from the gardens edges are just amazing. Very convenient location between the Coromandel and Tauranga with plenty of hiking day trips to be done. Will be back to do more next time. Thanks
ark is cute as : ) and area full of interest
Quirky, cosy and comfy. Didn't get to stay long but I enjoyed it. 'Appreciate the nice friendly welcome.
The property is this little oasis of well-manicured lawns and birdsong. We enjoyed our time at the Ark and would most definitely recommend it; it was perfectly sized for our family of three.
