Some people called this place a hidden gem and we could not agree more. The hosts were lovely and full of local knowledge, and the camp site was quiet, clean and had great facilities. We were only supposed to stay one night but loved it so much we added another night. The kids loved it, especially floating down the river. Would definitely go back.
This was such a gem. An amazing location right on the Motu Trail and owner John runs a fantastic shuttle service to the top of the track. The river running past was fantastic and the whole setting must perfect. We were a group of 7 and rented the house which was wonderful. We would recommend,and come back for sure.
Great shuttle service and accommodation nestled in a beautiful location! John was a helpful and thoughtful guide. Pakihi trail once in a lifetime experience, incredible views. Bushaven was a good base to get up to the trail easily.
Bushaven is the most amazingly beautiful part of the world. Secluded tranquil except for the resident critters... John and Virginia were definitely the perfect host's. The Love Shack was clean and catered for all our needs. John's local knowledge was interesting and shows his genuine love for this part of the world. We did the Pahiki trail and throughly enjoyed John's shuttle service through the gorge. The bikes were great and the trail so damn awesome....felt privileged to have been able to do it. ...
Hi, a big thank you for kindly telling us about the huge, old kahikatea tree on the Te Waiti walk. We came into your office last week, led to you by a local lady, and you were good enough to stop what you were doing and explain how to find the tree. Which we did! It was fabulous! Thank you SO much. We loved the whole area and will be back
