Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This brand new, high end, 1 bedroom, apartment like property is situated in a prime Piha location walking distance to everything.
This property combines hotel like luxury with a relaxed beach feel and all the mod cons you could ask for. Fully self contained, it boasts a full sized kitchen, and beautiful bathroom with walk in shower. Open up the huge sliding doors and look out to Lion Rock and across the river to the Waitakere Ranges national park across the road.

The space
There is spacious sun drenched terrace, a private outdoor courtyard and outdoor shower for after the beach.
If you’d like to stay in, there is Wifi, a 50” TV, Netflix, chrome cast, aircon / heat pump and a super comfy sofa to sink into and relax.
Fully appointed with linen, towels, beach towels, and guest amenities, so all you need to do is show up and chill out.
All brand new, double glazed and fully insulated with a high-end finish – this is your home away from home!
The name "Ruruwai" is a combination of Ruru (New Zealands native owl also known as the Morepork because of it's call) and "wai" meaning water. There are many native birds in Piha and you will see a lot of them, and hopefully hear the Ruru at night.
You are a 2 min walk to the Piha Store, Café, Art Gallery, RSA (for a beer and food) and a 5 min walk to the stunning Piha Beach and Lion Rock. Walking track to the Kitekite falls waterfall and Waitakere Ranges National Park at the end of the road and located right on the world famous Hillary Trail. You really can leave your car at the house and walk everywhere.
Off street car parking provided. Ask us about push-bike rental if you’d like to cruise around on a bike. Or paddle board rental… put the board in the river across the road and paddle to Lion Rock. Garage below is reserved for the owners, but if you have bulkier items or would like to arrange secured covered parking, let us know. Portacot and highchair also available on request.
