luxury lodges for sale
A private hunting lodge or retreat (10023)
Click for picture galleryThis is a rare opportunity to purchase a unique country property that could be a private retreat or a hunting lodge.
The luxurious homestead sits in 1,500 acres of deer fenced ruggedness in the central North Island's King Country, is just down the road from the snow capped mountains of National Park.
The owners of Retaruke Country Estate wish to sell their architecturally designed homestead on the 1500 acre hunting block of their 4,000 acre deer farm. Some years ago they successfully ran the homestead as a hunting lodge, attracting overseas hunters who never failed to admire the superb setting.
The land has a picture-perfect mix of native bush, open clearings and crystal clear streams and rivers. Awesome for the outdoor enthusiast, the hunting block is fully tracked and home to red and fallow deer, plus many native birds including the rare whio (Blue Duck) and kiwi.
The architecturally designed homestead, has been touted as nothing short of “par excellence” by visitors . This is no ordinary building. Built from solid mud brick, it has a 5-7 metre stud, macrocapa trusses and rimu-sarked cathedral-like ceilings milled from native timbers on the property. The glow from these natural materials gives a feeling of spaciousness, warmth, and comfort.
Two very generous lounges spill out through French doors onto enormous patios leading down to the vast front lawn from where you often see deer grazing in a clearing or gazing back at the homestead.
The four generous bedrooms, each unique in design, have bathrooms of honey-glow tiles and claw-foot baths. The study furnishings are finished in red jarra and a very modern central kitchen allows for great entertaining.
The garaging is double-plus sized and there is a utility building for quad bikes and farm equipment plus a wash down area for vehicles and hunters.
For sale as a furnished home, the fit out and furnishings are the best that could be bought.

Koura Lodge - Rotorua Lakeside (10061)
Click for picture galleryThis unique lakeside retreat is at one of Rotorua’s most exclusive addresses, and is nestled in an established garden setting with panoramic views over Lake Rotorua to Mokoia Island and Mt Tarawera.
Private and sheltered from the prevailing winds and away from the bustle of suburbia, this property has become a favoured Lodge for national and international travellers, who love its peace and tranquillity. It is far enough away from everyday life to provide privacy, yet is close enough to be only a few minutes from the Rotorua International Airport or the many outstanding attractions of this unique thermal city.
The Lodge offers a variety of luxury accommodation and all ten suites face towards the magnificent lake views. A private jetty allows access to a number of activities including boating, trout fishing, lake cruising, and even site seeing by float plane or jet boat. The Lake’s edge is deep at this point and is excellent for swimming in the summer months or even just trout fishing off the front lawn.
The lodge has achieved a four plus Qual mark star rating, and provides accommodation and breakfast for guests from its well appointed open plan kitchen and dining room. Log fire places, leather furnishings and trout fishing trophies hang from the walls.
The configuration of the Lodge’s buildings provides for a number of options for owner/manager’s onsite living and guest accommodation. The suites consist of two premium king rooms with spa-bath and ensuites, whilst the family apartment consists of one king room, one twin room, both with ensuites, a kitchen, lounge, dining area, fireplace and private balcony. There are four standard king/twin bedrooms with ensuites and two family suites with en suites. The Lodge has a beautifully appointed self-contained manager’s accommodation unit with private decks and lake views.
The 3,773 sq m land is freehold and has two separate titles, which would allow for the two dwellings to stand alone should they ever be sold as individual properties.
The business has been well established since it was purchased and up-graded, and now has three years of trading to show its potential as a viable business. The Lodge industry is growing rapidly in New Zealand and shows promise for increasing profits in the years ahead.
The sale of Koura Lodge presents a rare opportunity for someone to own one of Rotorua’s most unique waterfront properties and successful businesses.
For sale are the land and buildings, plus chattels and the business of Koura Lodge.
