Wairoro Park offer you these facilities for your holiday enjoyment. Please respect that your holiday home is also the home of the retired owner who genuinely enjoys sharing this magnificent location with you. If you can please return all equipment used to the place you found it and care for the facilities as if they were your own. The owner loves to see you enjoying your holiday, however  she is no longer young enough to carry kayaks, or BBQs from the beach, or to pick up after your dog and children.

Private beach

We own the beach, you are able to walk play, relax and swim. You may like to walk around the rocks or try your luck fishing at high tide. The kids usually can be found up one of the old large Pohutakawa trees, or digging for Pipis.


With room to relax or play, there is a flat area of lawn for you to bring your toys, be it badminton, petanque, volley ball or simply to rest and read a book.


There is a BBQ available on the deck of your accommodation. A communal BBQ can also be used on the lawn or by the beach. Gas BBQ only to be used due to frequent fire bans in the summer months.


We have some kayaks available for your use with a selection of life jackets. Please put these away after use. Charges will apply if Kayaks are left to drift out to sea!

Table tennis/ pool table

There is a table tennis set in the old shelter under a rambling kiwi fruit vine. There is also an old worn pool table for the kids to enjoy.


We have a 1.5 tonne mooring, about 150 mtrs off shore. Depth 2m at lowest tide. Please check with us if it available. We recommend that you launch from Russell.


The Okaiato to Russell walkway crosses our land. This is a lovely 1-2hr walk that you are able to take your dog (strictly on leash). It leads through native bush, with Kiwi and Weka habitat. The walkway rambles over board walks, through mangroves and oyster farms as it winds towards Russell or back towards Okaiato.

Internet- Via hot spot only.

Wireless internet is not available  becuase of our rural location, fiber is not an option. The old wore cables are slow and unreliable.  There is a big up side- device free chilren. If you must be connected there is excellent 4G coverage with Vodafone and 2degrees. 

Laundry and dryer

We have a washing machine and dryer available should you require during your stay.
