Once you reach Ripples you won't want to leave but for those who crave adventure it's a perfect home base to explore the many nearby scenic walks, great food options and it's close to the Waitomo Caves tourist attractions.

Indawo
Ripples is an extension of a 3rd generation sheep and beef farm situated in the Heart of the Mangaotaki Valley, 45 minutes south of Waitomo off SH 3. Opened in June 2020, this custom designed cabin has a modern luxurious interior with many handmade and special details and was specially crafted with couples and families in mind for your perfect holiday. It is sited where Gandolf's caravan was parked for the filming of the Hobbit in 2011 and has been used as a film location for other movies and major commercials.

It's completely private with only the sounds of the rippling stream, native birds and distant farm dogs working sheep with the .

Stunning farmland views

Easy access
Direct river access (walking only). For their safety we only accept children over the age of 6 and/or those that don't pose a risk around water.

Ripples has three beds. A four poster king bed in the main room and a double-bunk bed with single on top in a separate shut away alcove. The single top bunk is accessed with climbing rock holds and requires nimbleness to climb them, they are fun but little hard on the feet. There is a large single squab window seat with an amazing view for you to snuggle up on and read a book, or for an afternoon nap.

From hairdryers to ironing boards, Ripples has it all including a full kitchen. An outdoor BBQ and deck chairs that can be carried to the water's edge if you wish. There is “two bar” cellphone reception on the Spark and Skinny networks (Vodafone would require a short drive to higher ground). There is enough reception on the front deck to send and receive calls and plan your next day's adventures. Fitting in with a digital detox theme, there is no TV or WiFi so you can relax and enjoy.
