8480 State Highway 35 Whanarua Bay Waihau Bay
ARUHE is a Bed & Breakfast/Holiday Home in picturesque Whanarua Bay, on State Highway 35 and just over an hour's drive from Opotiki. State Highway 35 is renowned for its beautiful views of the ocean and uninhabited beaches. It's a road few know about and well worth the detour from the beaten track.
This sustainably built open-plan studio, with modern amenities, is surrounded by peace and natural beauty. ARUHE faces the Pacific Ocean and the view from the deck is framed by magnificent native trees.
A selection of breakfast ingredients are supplied for you to prepare at your own leisure. The kitchen cupboards hold most basic ingredients and if you plan to self-cater you will need to provide your own fresh ingredients. Opotiki and Gisborne are our nearest supermarkets. The kitchen has a large fridge, a freezer compartment, a two burner hob, a convection microwave and a Nespresso coffee maker for those who need their morning "fix". A comfortable king-sized bed sleeps two and a sofa bed can accommodate another one or two people. ARUHE is really only suitable for four as an overnight arrangement. Whilst the cottage is spacious for two, it is not quite so roomy for four.
Wifi is available but your mobile phone won't work here. There is no TV reception so it's a perfect opportunity to kick back, read that book you've been saving, beachcomb or relax in sun or shade.
The entire property is called Motuaruhe and it sits at the very edge of the Raukumara National Park and is far enough away from SH35 for guests to be untroubled by road noise and the occasional motorbike. Birdsong will waken you and continue to entrance you throughout the day.
