The Dome Waikino - Privacy In Nature

100% Recommended
2 people
No pets
Surrounded by hills, animals, birds, and native bush just 2 hours out of Auckland, close to the Karangahake Gorge and nearby towns of Waihi, Paeroa, and Waihi Beach, It's an ideal place to unwind, private, secluded but not far from towns, cafes, and a pub close by for convenience. A private, fully insulated, high-quality wooden chalet (King bed or twin sharing) with a fully equipped bathroom just outside. Hot water, toiletries, amenities, and towels. Free parking & Wifi.

Amazing views, privacy, and a nice bathroom - your own little space indoors and outdoors. Fridge, microwave, cutlery, crockery, heating, free parking, garden area, and BBQ facility upon request. Towels, hairdryer, first aid kit, board games, and books.

The chalet has its own private garden area. Alpaca/goat visiting if weather permits. Please avoid the forest as it has protected native flora and fauna and can be very steep, slippery, and potentially dangerous.

Brand new outdoor fire pit installed for guests, images coming soon!

Additional Information

I like to meet my guests but privacy is assured. My phone is always on if you need assistance in any way.

Quiet countryside, surrounded by forest, mountains, rivers. Perfect to relax after a day of activities in the Karangahake Gorge. Beautiful night skies, peace, and quiet and a firepit. Falls Retreat restaurant just down the road and Waikino Hotel nearby

Best way to get around is by car or motorbike.

Being rural, the GPS tends to lead you past the main entrance. Look out for the sign on your left that says THE DOME. The long, gravel driveway leading to the chalet is a little steep at the end. Non-4x4 cars need to make sure they keep their speed up as they ascend and head to the right at the fork as the road ascends to the chalet. Smoking is allowed but not in the buildings. The dogs and cat roam freely during the day (dogs in at night), so it might be best to keep the doors/windows closed when absent and not leave any food around outside. On hot days, leave the front push window open for ventilation. Your belongings will be safe. WIFI is free but data limited so please use the lowest quality streaming settings on your device. Please provide any medical conditions we should be aware of.


NO EXTRA GUESTS
The Dome only accommodates two guests maximum. Guests are not allowed to bring back unexpected guests unless pre-approved by the owners.

ALCOHOL & SMOKING
Any injury or damage caused as a result of intoxicated behaviour is the sole responsibility of the guest(s) and guests are liable with regards to compensation and replacement. Smoking is allowed but not in the buildings.

FOREST EXPLORATION
Guests are requested NOT to roam the forest on the property as it is a protected area with many Kauri trees and native flora and fauna. It is also usually quite steep, slippery, and can be dangerous.

NOISE
- Please keep a respectable volume after 10pm.

CLEANLINESS - Please leave dirty shoes outside and please leave the place clean & tidy

      The Karangahake Gorge is one of the North Island's most underrated locations. We loaded the car for a short road trip from Auckland, excited to spend the weekend exploring the historic gorge. We drove a familiar road, one that we...
