Ruru BnB

Taurangaruru BnB - Waiuku 
The safe anchorage or resting place of the more-pork (Owl)


 The name ‘Tauranga’ is a Maori name having the meaning of safe anchorage or resting place.

The native more-pork is known for its haunting, melancholic call. This sound gives it the Maori name ‘ruru’

Jim & Phyllis, welcome's you to their Taurangaruru BnB, the safe anchorage or resting place of the morepork (owl)

We are very active and sociable couple who always enjoy meeting new people. Having lived in the Waiuku and Awhitu area for the past 70 + years, we can provide a wealth of information on what to see and do.

We are situated in a tranquil rural area, on 10 acres of private and peaceful open farm land including a picturesque pond surrounded by established trees.

You will have the run of the house, including the use of the Concept2 Rower and Schwinn Air Dyne AD8 assault bike.

A six-person sauna is also available (at extra cost)

We are situated 3 km north of the main street of Waiuku - with their local shops, cafes and the Glenbrook vintage steam train station.

We are 6km from Castaways at Karioitahi  with black sand coastal beach and a beautiful 22km drive to the Awhitu Light House.

If you want action while on holiday we have Crossfit in Waiuku!  Check out  Waiuku  and book a session.

 We do have a unique coffee nook and included in the room rate, guests will enjoy a scrumptious continental breakfast available in the main dining room, to partake of at their leisure.

We are committed to guest’s privacy and interaction with your hosts is at the level you choose.
