“Raureka” - relaxing, rural setting in heart of Hawke’s Bay.

We welcome you to our home, “Raureka”, situated in a quiet rural setting 3km from the town of Hastings.

Owned by the Ormond family which has lived in the region for five generations, Raureka is surrounded by 100-year-old oak trees and an 18 acre apple orchard, the fruits of which are exported to Britain, Europe, Asia and the United States.

Comfortable, Attractive Surroundings:

Raureka Bed and Breakfast is attractive, comfortable and tastefully decorated, featuring a queen-size bed, ensuite bathroom, TV, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. It is detached from the main house, so you can enjoy complete privacy. Guests are welcome to use the swimming pool, tennis court, and BBQ facilities at any time. Or you may prefer to just sit in the garden and enjoy the view, and the peace and quiet.

We offer a choice of continental or cooked breakfast. The continental breakfast features homemade museli, fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast with a selection of jams, juice, and fresh coffee or tea. Cooked breakfast offers bacon, eggs, sausages, tomatoes and mushrooms. You may choose to breakfast in the privacy of your room - or with us in the main house.

Award-Winning Wineries:

Raureka is situated in Hawke’s Bay, one of New Zealand’s most successful grape-growing and winemaking regions. It’s premium red wines have been recognized internationally as amongst the best in the world.

There are dozens of boutique wineries situated within a 10km radius of Raureka, many also offering fine gourmet food produced by some of the country’s most sought after chefs. Visitors can soak up the atmosphere in one of the many cafes and restaurants - or dine alfresco amidst the vineyards, orchards and olive plantations. You can drive yourself to vineyards, and enjoy free tasting, or join one of the professional wine tours. A bicycle tour of the nearby “Ngatarawa” region wineries is available.

Outdoor Adventures:

For those keen golfers, we are only minutes away from one of New Zealand’s top-rated golf courses. We are regular players ourselves, and can organize your golfing requirements if you wish.

For the energetic, Hawke’s Bay offers just about every outdoor adventure you can imagine - from jet-boating between wineries, to hot air ballooning, caving, paragliding, windsurfing and trout fishing.

Boutique Shopping:

Just 10 minutes from Raureka, is the “village” of Havelock North, one of New Zealand’s most affluent towns which features a range of excellent boutique shops, cafes, restaurants - and more wineries! You could also check out the legendary Te Mata Peak and take in some hang-gliding action.

Beach Bumming:

Beach lovers read on … You can surf, fish - or just lie about on Hawke’s Bay’s sun drenched, white sand beaches. Waimarama and Ocean Beach, which stretch for miles and miles, are situated about 20 minutes east of Havelock North.

Art Deco Delights:

While you’re in Hawke’s Bay, you have the opportunity to visit the Art Deco capital of the world, Napier. Situated only 20km from Raureka, Napier is ‘famous’ for the history-making 1931 earthquake which virtually destroyed the entire city center, with a loss of 258 lives. After the earthquake, the city was rebuilt in the styles fashionable at that time, including Spanish Mission and Art Deco - the major style of the early 20th Century.

Today Napier has one of the highest concentrations of Art Deco architecture in the world, and attracts visitors from every corner of the globe. In 1999, the city hosted the 5th World Art Deco Congress. Visitors can take a tour of Napier with an expert guide and relive the spirit of ‘moderne’ era, or you can explore the city on your own using the Art Deco Walk leaflet.

Gannets Galore:

For something a little different, you can visit Napier’s Cape Kidnappers - host to one of the largest, most accessible Gannet colonies in the world. Administered by the Department of Conservation, this area presents a special opportunity for a close-up view of this relative of the pelican in its natural environment.

There are a variety of tours available to the Gannets - along the beach or over private farming land. The season at Cape Kidnappers runs between October and late April, with the best time for viewing between early November and late February.

When Are You Coming?

We look forward to hosting you at Raureka. We can guarantee your stay here will be relaxed, quiet and friendly, with plenty of activities within easy reach. We have travelled extensively, and we are happy to assist with your travel plans for the rest of your stay in New Zealand.
