WildCoast, Ruapuke

Nestled in the foothills of Mount Karioi, our cabins at Ruapuke offer spectacular views of the rugged coastline, rolling farm hills, and beautiful native bush. Kick back and relax in this remote and tranquil setting, or experience the majestic surroundings of Ruapuke on one of our horse adventures.

Raglan Accommodation

Discover our unique private cabins that perch on the edge of a deep valley covered with native bush and alive with native birds. Hear the rushing stream that makes its way along the valley floor below the cabins.

WindyFlax and WaterSong are proudly run on alternative power – solar for lights and gas for cooking and hot water. There are no power plugs, no cellphone coverage and no wifi available there. This is part of the uniqueness of Wildcoast Cabins. Come and stay and unwind, opt-out for a night or a few, enjoy the stars at night, rest, read, walk, ride, swim, talk … escape! Tune into nature and the environment.

Both cabins are set up with all your basic needs met – all you need to do is bring along your food supplies. All linen and towels are supplied. Each cabin includes a queen size bed, but additional bedding is available on request.

Sit on the deck and watch the sun set into the ocean, drink fresh mountain water and soak in the bath with a view.

Prices: $240 per cabin per night

*Power points available at main house for your use.

Hot Tub - Set among the native bush, off the beaten track, is a secluded gas fired hot tub that we fill with fresh mountain water. Sit, soak and listen to the birds, or watch the stars at night. You can book the hot tub for the afternoon/evening of your stay. Perfect for after a few hours in the saddle or just a place to unwind and enjoy. Prices: $80 for one night, $20 per night thereafter (hot tub is not chlorinated and is filled with fresh spring water for each booking. Extra nights are subject to availability).

Horse Treks

Ride with us over our farm and up Mt Karioi where you will see wonderful views of the beach, ocean and rolling valleys. We ride through native bush, over streams and down onto the beautiful Ruapuke beach where the black iron (volcanic) sand glistens. Feel the wind on your face – this is a horse adventure with an edge!

  • Extreme Horse Adventure -  Our world-famous 3 hour (half day) extreme horse adventure with an edge will take your breath away.
