A farmstay retreat in the northern Rangitikei, Mairenui is ideally located for weekenders from Wellington, and as a stop on your North Island tour.


Per night
$50.00 - $210.00
$20.00 - $50.00


With three distinct accommodation options, Mairenui offers a restful getaway for couples, families or other groups.
With two self-contained houses, and two inhouse double/twin rooms, Mairenui can accommodate up to 22 people.

The working hill-country farm has been in the Sweet family for over 100 years, and The Villa predates even the family's arrival.
The Retreat was built in the 1970s and is a steep-roofed, 3 1/2 story curiosity.

The Homestead offers a double and a double/twin, with ensuite bathrooms. French-inspired cooking and genial hosts contribute to "The Complete Rural Experience" that Mairenui's past guests have so loved.
