Ripples Retreat

All year round

Ripples is an architecturally designed, beautifully fitted, and thoughtfully appointed riverside cabin.

The luxury cabin retreat is completely private. You may hear in the distance the sounds of farm dogs working sheep or spot Brendan or Graeme riding along farm tracks, moving stock. Nestled in the crook of the tranquil Mangaotaki Stream, Ripples Retreat is surrounding by beautiful rolling hills and framed by rugged limestone cliffs. It is Waikato accommodation at its finest. Guests love the peace, tranquility and attention to detail and it truly is an intimate sanctuary in every sense. Min 2 night stay, 3 nights on long weekends and summer holidays. Sorry, no pets. Children must be 6yrs+ due to direct river access. Bookings essential.


From $290
