Alongside the Whakatane waterfront WARU is as close as you can get to the river, the walkway & wharf, cafes, restaurants & shopping. The skatepark & two children's playgrounds are only a short stroll away. With an open plan fully equipped kitchen & laundry, spacious dining & lounge areas help you feel right at home. Both the lounge & main bedroom have access to a sunny & sheltered balcony where you can sit & enjoy the view, relax with a book, watch the birds or the activity on the river.

With a 55" smart TV & a Sonos sound system you can watch tv, Netflix or dvds, or choose your favourite artists/radio stations to listen to once you’ve downloaded the Sonos app on your phone.

Up to four people can be accommodated comfortably. The king size bed suits couples & there are two single beds in the second bedroom. Rest assured the beds are very comfortable with quality linen & a selection of pillows to choose from.

You are barely a minutes walk away from the i-site and bus stop, town centre as well as tourist activities like Moutohora Island tours & fishing, diving and kayaking charters. Cycle, take a walk along the waterfront, or hike the hills along Toi's Track through beautiful native bush with fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean, Otarawairere Bay & Ohope Beach.

Whakatane, Bay Of Plenty, i-New Zealand

WARU is located on Quay St, just along from the iSite.
The views are special. The river is literally at your doorstep & there is always something to watch - whether it is the boats leaving or returning over the bar, the birds or even the locals walking or cycling along the waterfront. Beautiful bush and waterfall views from the kitchen and bedroom windows are not too shabby either.

A visit to Mataatua: The meeting house that came home, is well worth a visit as is Muriwai's Cave. Wairere Waterfall which can be seen from WARU is only a short walk away. All are very special places.

Whatever outdoor activities you are interested in, you will find all the information you need in a minute or two by walking to the Information centre & for many of the water based activities you won't have far to walk to the wharf where most of them are based.

Coffee, lunch & dinner are available downstairs in Roqette Restaurant (except on Sunday). As one guest commented ‘It is arguably the best restaurant in town.’ We enjoy eating at Roqette.

Peejays Coffee House (3mins walk) has great coffee, early breakfasts and lunches, The Bean, L'Epicerie, Cafe 4 U, and Poppies are close, Robert Harris is a little further away but worth the effort.
Double Zero has delicious authentic Italian pizzas & salads. Soulsa is another very popular restaurant as is Spice Junction.
Detour has recently reopened, has a bar & also offers tapas and Stonegrill dining. Very nice.

We are sure you will appreciate & enjoy what a stay in WARU has to offer.

I was born and raised in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, as was my husband Grant. I have a Maori mother and my father is from the island of Jersey. The only time I have spent away from home was to attend Secondary Teachers' College and Auckland University many moons ago. We have a daughter and a son and two mokopuna (grandchildren). WARU is a dream come true for us. I enjoy meeting our guests and letting them know about the many and varied attractions and activities the Eastern Bay has to offer. My aim is to make you feel as if you’re at home and for your stay to be an enjoyable and memorable experience. We hope you enjoy your time in WARU as much as we enjoy being able to share it with you. Our life motto: Attitude to gratitude, Choose to be happy and in control, Live in the present.

Once guests have been met initially they will have the privacy similar to 'being at home.’ If guests need to contact me I am only a phone call away.

On arrival a complimentary walking tour taking in the wharf, the waterfall, the stairs leading to the lookouts and along part of the Strand shopping area is available if guests are interested. This may help guests to get their bearings.
Information regarding leaving the apartment will be shared with guests.
