Ahu Ahu Beach Villas

The architects brief for the Villas was to piece together 15 metre  hardwood wharf piles, 100 year old French clay tiles, classic lattice windows, solid wooden doors and many other valuable recycled items. These materials combined with undulating plaster walls, handcrafted joinery and Hundertwasser inspired bottle windows create a charming ‘European styled New Zealand flavoured’ synergy. The four Villas housed in two unique self contained dwellings are distinguished with different coloured rear windows.

NB – This Villa has been designed with the disabled guest in mind.

The four original award winning Beach Villas have now been complimented by our latest award winning  addition ‘Oraukawa Lodge’.  Oraukawa Lodge is a multi function paladian styled building ideal for a ‘weekend escape’, small conference\wedding or gathering with family or friends. The perfect gathering spot when booking out all of the Villas.  Our desire was to create a structure with as little visual impact as possible, we achieved this by digging it into the side of a hill and landscaping the roof. Eight sets of cedar bifold doors  open between columns to take the indoor space outdoors onto a landscaped patio complete with a ‘Rock Fall’ and intimate sea views.
