Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary Tauranga Reviews
Most Rewarding and Unforgettable Experience Sep 30, 2013
This was undoubtedly the best accommodation we stayed in during our trip of NZ's north island.
The rooms are called Whares that are like mini cabins with en suite bathrooms and little terraces with a table and chairs to enjoy the sunshine during the summer.
It costs $120 + GST (15%). For the price you get breakfast which consists of a full fried breakfast as well as cereal, toast, tea, coffee and fruit. You can choose what time you have your breakfast, the owners are very accommodating. It also includes a glow worm tour after dark. We were able to choose the time we took the tour but maybe that was just because it was off-season. They also take you on a tour of their property which is huge with a lot of bush area and a sheep paddock where you can feed the sheep. Wifi is also free but it's extremely slow and frustrating to use.
The couple who own the place are eco warriors and seem really passionate about trying to be self-sufficient out on their land on the hillside. Their land is quite big with a lot of bush land and a mini forest which the owner will take you around.
It is such an interesting place. The glow worm tour was so unique. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would recommend it to anyone.
