Labour of Love


Puritawa Estate has evolved as a "labour of love" over the past 20 years.


The name stems from Puriri & Tawa, the largest and most predominant trees on this spellbinding 21 acre property.


The owner has put his heart & soul into handcrafting custom built furniture and fittings throughout the sprawling estate. His attention to detail is breathtaking. All native timber is sourced from fallen trees within the property.


The original farm cottage on site has been relocated and carefully renovated to provide self-contained accommodation with full kitchen facilities.


Your hosts pride themselves on hospitality and finishing touches that make your stay unforgettable. They provide a homely atmosphere in a smoke-free environment.
