Quiet countryside, surrounded by forest, mountains, and rivers. Perfect to relax after a day of activities in the Karangahake Gorge. Beautiful night skies, peace, and quiet and a firepit. The Falls Retreat restaurant is just down the road and The Waikino Hotel is nearby as well.
The 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 only 4G.
NO EXTRA GUESTS
The Dome only accommodates two guests maximum, either a king bed, tywo singles or one single. 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.
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.
