Looking for comfortable accommodation near Lake Waikaremoana in the Urewera National Park? Tuai Cottage is a vacation rental that has recently been renovated to suit modern needs, while retaining many of the original features. Meals are now occasionally available. Part of the attractive village of Tuai, this holiday home is located at the top of Mountain Road, surrounded by bush with views out over Tuai's Lake Whakamarino. Ten minutes drive from Lake Waikaremoana, it is ideal for a get-away-from-it-all holiday. While not a homestay, it is a real home away from home.

Clean, information provided in the area, history and walks which was great, plenty of room and we loved sitting out on the deck in the evening.

Not only a beautiful location but also a lovely house. Plenty of space for both families that stayed (with 3 small children) and the little people loved foraging for yummy produce around the bountiful garden. Incredibly helpful hosts were able to give good recommendations for activities where needed and there was also lots of information in the house. Great amenities and well looked after. We even enjoyed idyllic bbqs on the deck listening to the tuis. Highly recommend for a great getaway.

We stayed for 2 nights in this delightful cozy cottage. I can not fault it at all. It was so peaceful and cozy warm with the log fire that we both spent the Saturday afternoon dozing after a fab walk exploring waterfalls. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. If you want a relaxing break in a beautiful area come here.

Kia ora, the comments below from "jtopp" are completely uncalled for! Yes … I was the offending party who double booked. This accommodation is the BEST you will find in Waikaremoana/Tuai we have been coming here for years, so my advice is to ignore their meaningless comments. In addition to the landlords making alternative arrangements for the couple I myself made the offer of free accommodation and a free meal at one of Wairoa’s top motels but they were extremely stubborn and uncompromising. They booked in May 2011 to stay November 2011, we on the other hand booked in November 2010 to stay November 2011. They were very difficult people to deal with I would go so far as to say they were “toffee-nosed”. They certainly gave me and the other guests the impression that they were more important than us. I understand from the landlords that this is the first and only instance of a double booking they have ever had in many years they have been operating. However unavoidable it was bound to happen eventually and I very much doubt it will ever happen again. Obviously “jtopp” cannot speak to the qualities and so forth associated with this premium accommodation as obviously they never got to stay – excuse the tongue in cheek. Honestly book here it’s the best ever!

Warning! You can't trust the owners. We experienced the following:
Made a reservation in May for a stay in November. Reservation was confirmed. We call 4 days prior to arrival, and were told about problem with double booking. Then we were told that we could choose between coming at another date, or staying in the hut with somebody else or come as planned and stay alone. Whe chose to stay alone and got an e-mail confirming this. Then 4 days later we arrived at the hut-just to discover that somebody else were staying there! And this was done to us during the Lakes to Lighthouse weekend, where accomodation is almost impossible to get.

Very comfortable home away from home. Plenty of room for our four children to play. Great security and fenced off section. The children enjoyed the toys to play with on the rainy day. Thanks Desiree and Jane

We really enjoyed our short time at your cottage, a gem hidden away for sure.
Loved how the inside felt - very comfortable, and like home. You must have put a lot of time into the house. And the Winitana's went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. So thanks a lot, and we will definately recommend it to our friends.
Thanks again - Jason Gerbes

Coming down from the Urewera gorge to the beauty of Lake Waikaremoana in fading dusk light was the precursor of something special. Spending two weeks exploring this region from the small neighbouring village of Tuai was idyllic. It's a long trip indeed from Auckland but this really is paradise unspoilt. Remote and quiet, this was the most rewarding, relaxing and enjoyable of holidays by far (and with two rambunctious boys, aged 4 & 6 that's saying a lot). We could fill a novel about the walking tracks (from easy-peasy to serious tramper), the lakes, the bluffs, the autumn light, the waterfalls, birdlife and the cottage itself (have to mention the broadband and free view TV). Just go, you'll fall in love. There's so much we didn't get to do but guess that's reason enough to justify a return.

Hello Kim and Kings,
What wonderful comments. We are so grateful to you and so thrilled that you enjoyed your stay so much. I confess I was a little anxious about you bringing your wee boys all that way but clearly you are a very together family who takes these things in their stride. Yay to you! I have just arrived in Colorado to help our daughter cope with her 4 month old as she returns part time to work, so it's great to be around little children again. Take care and many thanks - Jane
