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.

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.
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.
