Wairua Lodge in the Hidden River Valley is aptly named. It is a natural paradise of 15 acres of mountain rainforest accessed off the iconic 309 Road which showcases scenery through farmland, pine forest and bush. It is the only accommodation on this route. Now the Whitianga property is for sale.

The original turreted home built in the 1980s from locally milled timber is the current owners’ home. The owners developed the business and property over the past ten years.

The guest accommodation comprises four rooms with ensuites. A two bedroom apartment, The Riverdeck Suite, faces into the valley.

A tall two storey barn provides alfresco lounge dining with indoor/outdoor options with kitchenette, ideal for international guests who choose to do their own catering.

Wairua Lodge is on a 5.8 Hectare Block of regenerating Temperate Rainforest 12 kilometres from Whitianga.

The Old Coach Road is the original stage coach road that was hand dug between the Port of Coromandel and the Port of Whitianga in the Kauri logging and gold mining period of Coromandel’s colourful history.
