Ripples is nestled in a secluded spot immersed in nature with luxury/serenity and style. It enfolds you in the natural beauty of rolling hills, the song of stream water lapping over stones, and gives you the perfect chance to recharge in comfort – and you're the only chalet!

Once you reach Ripples you won't want to leave but for those who crave adventure it's a perfect home base to explore the many nearby scenic walks, great food options and it's close to the Waitomo Caves tourist attractions.

If your booking is affected by Covid_ 19 we will rebook you at no extra cost to a stay of equal value to an available date which suits you. Even if you are currently staying at Ripples or your booking is days or weeks away. This update overrides our current cancellation policy.

Ripples is an extension of a 3rd generation sheep and beef farm situated in the Heart of the Mangaotaki Valley, 45 minutes south of Waitomo off State Highway 3. The chalet opened in June 2020, sits on the side of the Mangaotaki stream where Gandolfs caravan was sited for the filming on the Hobbit in 2011.

It's completely private with only the sounds of the rippling stream, native birds and distant farm dogs working sheep with the farmer.

Easy access
Direct river access (walking only). For their safety we only accept children over the age of 7 and/or those that don't pose a risk around water.

Ripples has three beds. A four poster king bed in the main room and a double-bunk bed with single on top in a separate shut away alcove. The single top bunk is accessed with climbing rocks and requires nimbleness, they are fun but little hard on the feet. There is a large single squab window seat with an amazing view for you to snuggle up and read a book or for an afternoon nap.

From hairdryers to ironing boards, Ripples has it all including a full kitchen. An outdoor BBQ and deck chairs that can be carried to the water's edge if you wish. There is “two bar” cellphone reception on the Spark and Skinny networks (Vodafone would require a short drive to higher ground). There is enough reception on the front deck to send and receive calls and plan your next day's adventures. Fitting in with a digital detox theme, there is no TV or WiFi so you can relax and enjoy.
