This is a sanctuary for the mindful! Situated in luscious forest, just next to the famous Cory Road look-out point, this classic Waiheke bach offers a calm and quiet space where you can relax, and meditate immersed in nature, Light filters in coruscating patterns through the foliage into this airy home, filled with bird song. You can rest your gaze on glorious sea views while your mind and spirit rejuvenate. Warm and enthusiastic colours inside will set your mood with kindness and wisdom.

The 100 steps to this retreat will work to improve your fitness levels as each step takes you further from the hustle and bustle, down into the quiet of the forest. You will not hear any cars from the road above once in this sanctuary. On your way, stop at the yoga/massage and beauty salon for some soulful indulgence. Pre-book your session with Michelle by calling 021-657-391. This is truly a back to nature refuge yet close enough to the bus stop if you want to hit the beach, restaurants or shops. A track just along the road will take you to Palm Beach in 5 to 10 minutes.

You will feel blessed to stay at Kereru Sanctuary, watching the early morning sunrise and letting the sound of the ocean rock you to sleep. See the Kereru sitting in his favourite tree outside the window, the playful Tuis and the shy Ruru! The peace and quiet is perfect for healing and regeneration. Walks along the beach and the back to nature feel of the bush gives you space to be who you really are.

  • 'Sooo quiet!! Great space for nature lovers wanting to relax and see the sunrise who don’t mind a bit of a camping vibe! The place had a hippie feel and was very stimulating; full of bright colours, throws, rugs, eclectic art/finishings and wall art. There was a good amount of space at the property and it was cool inside given the outdoor temperatures. Bit of a hike uphill from the beach but manageable and good for burning off the cafe meals!'
