Kawakawa Hut


A simple, off-grid rural getaway for two, in Taupo, New Zealand. Kawakawa Hut is a small but special little place tucked neatly between rolling hills. The Hut provides a simple but comfy getaway for two in a beautiful countryside.

Winner of Airbnb’s Best Nature Stay, in New Zealand. New outdoor bath. Whether you are in need of an affordable place as a stopover whilst driving the North Island, on a road trip or in need of a longer stay to explore Taupo or in Taupo for a particular event, Kawakawa Hut will cater to all your needs. Close by lies the vegetable garden, and friendly cows graze just over the fence. Further out over surrounding farmland and you will see snow capped mountains in the distance, making for a peaceful vista to sit back and enjoy. The hut is off grid and is built of repurposed materials so that your stay has a low environmental impact. You will find everything you need in one room, with the addition of a small ensuite.
