Information about booking ...

There are various options for the use of Te Waiora House.

You may wish to take time out and stay for a few days, or you may use the house for a day retreat.  

Groups are also welcome to use Te Waiora for a day visit or overnight retreat.

We would love you to come and enjoy our facilities.

One night at Te Waiora covers a 24hr period. It usually includes three meals and a night's accommodation.  It costs us approximately $110 for each night's stay per person. However, we would like all who need time out to be welcomed and you are encouraged to contact us to discuss a subsidy if needed to enable you to come.

Maybe you are eligible for Carer Support - MoH or DHB. 
Other funding options include applying to Trusts or community organisations for grants.


1. Te Waiora is not for emergency care. However, there are occasions when an urgent need will be considered.    For further information go to our contact page.

2. No alcohol is permitted at Te Waiora, with the exception of communion wine. Smoking is permitted outside in a designated area only.
