Aruhe is a Bed & Breakfast/Holiday Home in picturesque Whanarua Bay, on State Highway 35 and just 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 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.

At Aruhe you have the choice of self-catering or joining your host for an evening meal($45.00 per person,per meal). Please let me know when you book if you would like this "extra".

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. 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.

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.

  • A wonderful quiet place far away from busy city life. The bungalow was right in the bush, offered a great view from the balcony, and the attention to detail blew my mind. Kim, the owner, really thought of everything you could possibly need. Highly recommended! 5

  • Thanks so much for the lovely review Andy. I really appreciate your having taken the time to post it. It was great to meet you, your sister and her partner.
  • We would return to Aruhe in a heartbeat. Bird song and cicadas, distant view of the bay, and excellent self catering accommodation. It exceeded our expectations. 5
