    Host was very welcoming and met us. Very pleasant. The bungalow itself had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable. There is also a shared washer and dryer that can be used. The surroundings were amazing! The garden and the greenery around...

Wharepuke has been in the family since 1938. Robin Booth moved back to the family land in 1993 where, from completely bare earth he started a subtropical nursery and started the plantings of what is now lush subtropical "Gardens of Significance" NZGT. Robins daughter Tania with her partner Mark moved to Wharepuke after travelling (and working) the world for 10 years. An old army barrack was moved from Auckland on the back of a truck and converted into a cafe.The cottages were set up. Mark Graver RE set up the Wharepuke Print Studio, NZ's only dedicated nontoxic etching studio, and the Art at Wharepuke gallery, specialising in international printmakers but also exceptional works in other media. A sculpture trail through the gardens opened in Dec 2015. 40+ art works were selected from around NZ and abroad to exhibit in the garden. We now have a changing exhibition of sculptures and provide opportunity for artist residencies for artists from around the world. Maha Restaurant is now in the army barrack building. Award winning chef Ming Poon describes his food as "where East Meets West".He uses local produce and wines and is fully licensed
Kerikeri is a boutique town with lots of cafes, wineries and crafts. Wharepuke is just a 5 min walk to NZs iconic historic area the Stone Store Basin reserve where there is NZ's oldest buildings, Maori history and lovely river walks to see waterfalls. Just 1km to Kerikeri town
