The River Oaks Cabin

A place for couples to unwind and relax in nature.

Escape to a Cabin by the River

Our Cabin is set in its own private clearing, just a minute’s walk from the Wainui River and surrounded by majestic farmland and native bush. It’s a perfect destination for couples or solo travellers wanting a place of tranquility for a short break, honeymoon or a holiday, where you can relax with a glass of wine on the deck or in the outside bath.

We look forward to welcoming you to River Oaks Retreat and invite you to arrange your stay in the Cabin by heading to the Book Now button on this page.

The ultimate picnic spot – The Zen Den

There’s no place quite like the Zen Den for relaxing. Positioned right by the river, the Zen Den is available to guests in our Jungle Den, the Moroccan Tent, and the Cabin. Take a bottle of wine, one of our platters, and soak up the beautiful surroundings.

“From the moment we arrived till the moment we left we had an amazing time. Stunning location. Beautiful hot tub, delicious food from the farm. River dips and gazing across farmland to deer and cattle. Highly recommend.”

– Emma

“What a wonderful place to step back from the hustle of life. The birds, the river…. The comfy bed and outdoor bath!! Off the grid but still creature comforts. Was only 25min from our home in Tauranga but felt like it was way out in the wilderness. Highly recommend it.”

– Tina

“What a perfect and cute cabin with everything you need. Bed super comfortable, nice outdoor area. The amazing outdoor bath and the special treats were the cherry on the top of the cake. It was an ideal spot to unplug and relax.”

“Absolutely amazing place, we really enjoyed our time there. We barely saw a soul - it was very quiet and private. The outdoor bath was wonderful and we loved jumping in the river! Made our honeymoon perfect!”

– Summer

“Loved the seclusion of the cabin. Watching the deer come through the bush, listening to native bird life, watching pheasants and rabbits coming to check us out. All this happening while having a well rested soak in the outdoor bath. Turn your phone off, de-stress and reconnect with nature and yourself.”

– Jas & Pam

"It was absolutely awesome, the river was amazing and the outdoor bath really topped everything off. Loved how environmentally friendly everything was too."
