Maraetotara, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

We are located in Mataetotara Valley Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.

We are on the sunny side of the valley overlooking the Ruahine mountain range, mount Kahuraniki, and Te Mata peak and Hawke’s bay to the North.

Our home is a 20-25 min drive from Craggy Range Winery and Terroir restaurant, Black Barn restaurant and shopping in Havelock North village. We are 10 min drive from Maraetotara falls, 15 min to Waimarama beach, 20 min to Ocean beach and 5 min to Mohi bush reserve. You are a short 10min walk from the Maraetotara Gorge bush reserve and the valley is great for road or mountain biking adventures.
