Ocean view cabin that is sure to delight! Windyflax is an unplugged oasis on the coast with beautiful rolling green hills and beautiful natural bush. Wake up to birds singing, horses neighing and cows mooing. This is the ultimate horse retreat as well. Roll out of bed and go for a ride right down to the sparkling ocean.

Amazing views of the beach and lush forest. A perfect horseback riding retreat. Experience the best that the local New Zealand countryside offers. Perfect for horse enthusiasts, or just people who want to truly immerse themselves in nature. You’ll love my place because of the horseback riding treks, hikes, beach rides, hot tub, unplugged relaxation, the views, the location, and the people. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families.

The space

- Beautiful views of the Tasman sea and native bush
- Short walk or drive to Ruapuke Beach
- Horse treks on site

Wildcoast Ruapuke is set on the sweeping foothills of Mt Karioi overlooking Ruapuke Beach and the Tasman Sea. Ruapuke is a spectacular part of the country, with bush, rocky bottom streams, the beautiful black sand beach, waterfalls, bush and mountain walks, swimming holes and peace and privacy. Wildcoast is the ultimate getaway.

We have two studio style cabins set amongst our 120 acre farm surrounded by bush and streams with beautiful ocean views. They are proudly run on alternative power, the lights are solar powered and the water and stove are run on LPG. The water comes from a beautiful stream on the mountain, it is wonderful and fresh to drink or to soak in a hot bath with a view. Both cabins have BBQ and a private deck.

Windyflax is set among flax and native bush with lovely views of the sea. This cabin sleeps up to three people, but an extra mattress can be added if required. You have a private deck to have your BBQ on.

Wildcoast also offers 2 1/2 - 3hr horse adventures which take you into the hills and down ridges and valleys and onto Ruapuke Beach. Our horses are wonderful, we will have a horse to suit your level of riding. We have a few different options for our horse adventures.

It is a 15 minute walk or a short drive to Ruapuke Beach for good surf, fishing and maybe a quick dip.

Guest access

You will be able to walk about our farm (please respect the paddocks with animals in them) and be able to walk down to the beach. Because there are no power sockets in the cabins, (so there are no TV's or wifi etc.) if anything needs charging we will happily charge them for you.

Interaction with guests

We are a warm and friendly family and we love our guest. Please feel free to ask us any questions and let us know how we can make you more comfortable. You'll see us working on our farm, riding the horses and trekking around with our dog. Feel free to say hi! Or book a ride with us down to the beach for the ultimate horse lover extreme ride.

The drive to the cabins is pretty magical (definitely take the coast road if your car is up to it, though take it easy and enjoy the drive). The cabins are a little slice of heaven, off the grid and slotted into native bush on a beautiful farm, looking out to the sea. You're surrounded by birdsong and the sound of running water, and little else. There are no curtains on the big windows looking out to the ocean, and when it gets dark you really understand why. Such a great experience going to sleep looking out to an unspoilt night sky. The hosts are lovely and friendly, with some great local advice and they manage a good balance of being available for you, while also making you feel like you're the only people there. You're welcome to wander across the beautiful farm and to take in nature. Finally, the hot tub in the bush is an absolute must do if your budget allows. You definitely won't regret it if you take that option. Have a great stay

What a treat! Such a great escape away - Wayne and Penny’s beautiful farm is perfectly secluded yet still less than an hour from Hamilton, cute cabins tucked away amongst the bush. Can’t get much more relaxing! This was then topped off with lots of fun horse trekking, such a rush riding gorgeous Greta, Indy and Moon from the farm down to play in the waves on the beach. It was my husbands first time on a horse and he loved it! Highly recommended!! Beautiful property that the family take a lot of pride in. Great to see pristine streams and healthy animals. Thanks Wayne and Penny, we’ll be back :)

Great spot in the world. Quiet and relaxing. The sound of the nearby stream in the evening adds to the relaxing environment. The sunset from the deck is to be enjoyed. Do go down to the beach. It's well worth a visit.
