Providing one of the most tranquil places to stay in Taranaki
A quick 10-kilometre drive into New Plymouth, Okurukuru is situated on Taranaki’s spectacular coastline, overlooking Paratutu rock and the Sugarloaf Islands on one side with a clear sight of our majestic Mount Taranaki on the other.
Our Chalets include two luxury suites and six modern studio apartments with our newly designed disable unit. Built by Chris Bell Construction and opened in June 2020, the chalets are nestled into the hill above the coast, surrounded by vines and farmland. Each chalet has a balcony to watch the waves roll in with the complementary bottle of Okurukuru wine waiting at check-in. The chalets boast all the mod cons such as Wi-Fi and smart Tvs, they have been carefully designed to maximise the stunning setting; there are even sea views from the huge showers. It's a 10 minute walk through the vineyards and bush to a beautiful, secluded beach.
Okurukuru Manager, Rae Davey - "The chalets are ideal for locals who want a relaxing night or two away from home without the hassels of travelling - a "staycation" if you will. They are also popular with overseas and Kiwi holiday makers as well as for business retreats".
Our luxury suites include a master bedroom with a super king bed (can be split into two king singles), and an en-suite with a double shower. Upstairs contains the kitchen, additional bathroom and a spacious open plan lounge. For extra guests there is a double sofa bed in the lounge, which also has its own shower room adjacent.
Shared between two unique self-contained dwellings, the six chalet studio Chalets are situated in the heart of our lower vineyard. Chalet 3 has been designed with the disabled guest in mind with lowered benches and wheelchair access to and around the room.
Our petite size studio’s feature all of the modern comforts with a kitchenette, en-suite, Smart TVs, a private balcony outside your room and plenty of parking space. Our studio apartments have been designed to comfortably accommodate two adults, an extra single fold out bed may also be added for a third guest (please see photos below) or we have a port-a-cot which we are able to put into your chalet.
The bedroom features a king double bed that can be split into two king singles. Our studio Chalets are the perfect destination for a getaway with your partner, family, a group of friends, or business associates.
Jamie, 2021: Everything was amazing! Spectacular views! The place was good value for money, loved the wine and juice on arrival. The open shower was to die for, nice and clean. Would highly recommend.
Helen, 2021: The location is amazing, perched on the cliff overlooking the Tasman Sea. Design of the suite is very accommodating and makes the most of the view.
David, 2021: Stunning views and beautiful rooms. Spotlessly clean. Great restaurant on site.
Michelle, 2020: The location is 10mins from CBD, the view over the vineyard out to the ocean is stunning. The chalet is very well set out and comfortable, the bathroom is great. Only 2 chalets together, very private and no next door noise which is great. The added bonus of the on site restaurant which is owned independently is lovely and in summer would be just lovely looking out to the water. The food is delicious.
Jessicca, 2020: It’s simply breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful. With the panoramic Seaview overlooking the ever green winery it’s just really something magical. The sound of the sea is calming and it’s really quiet. Not sure if that’s because of the fine dining restaurant being closed, either way it’s just incredible. The actual chalet is exactly how it is in the photos, but it doesn’t capture the real beauty of just being there. The layout is perfect and comfortable too. I loved the touch of the complimentary wine from their winery and breakfast too. Lovely hosts to chat with and easy to contact. We are locals and will be back for sure.
Elizabeth, 2020: Very attractive accommodation thoughtfully designed and set out. Very comfortable bed and well equipped. The complimentary bottle of wine from the vineyard was a nice touch. Very helpful and warm staff.
Graeme, 2020: WOW our chalet was amazing ! Spacious, well appointed, airy with fantastic bathroom. Bed was very big & comfy. The view was incredible. I didn’t want to leave.
Javier, 2017: We absolutely loved our stay in chalet #1. The views from every room were truly incredible and the place came equipped with everything we could ever need. Would love to stay there again soon!
Benjamin, 2016: “The first thing anyone would say upon reaching is "WOW!". This is a fantastic chalet that anyone travelling to or passing by New Plymouth should not pass up. The chalet is located within the private premise of Okurukuru Vineyards and it is overlooking the fantastic Tasman Sea. I believe it is also possible to see Mount Taranaki but our time there was cloudy, raining and way too short to have an opportunity to explore. Rae, the property manager was extremely kind and thoughtful on making sure our stay was as comfortable as possible with her preparation prior and even updating us on the weather on the day of our arrival! All amenities for a comforting stay is provided for (including breakfast!) and I really did not want to leave such a wonderful place where serenity and a scenic view can be found. Will try to book both chalets next time we visit with our families and for a much longer time to truly enjoy this hidden exotic gem in New Plymouth!”
