What our guests say

A beautiful venue with a lovely, calming feel. We thoroughly enjoyed having our event here, as did all of our guests! Such a peaceful, relaxing place. Loved it! The staff were brilliant too! Katrin Lilla, the Florist, is AMAZING! What a beautiful job she did with the flowers!! The house was clean, beautifully presented and everything we could have hoped for. We would definitely recommend!

From the moment we drove up the hill, we knew Waipuna would be the location of our wedding.

Highly recommend! My husband and I just got married at Waipuna last month and we couldn’t be happier. The staff go the extra mile to make everything run smoothly and put so much effort in to help organise or check in leading up to the big day. I was so relaxed on the day knowing the staff had everything under control for us. Can’t thank them enough!


BnB at Waipuna

We only looked at one venue in person (after weeks of scrolling through the possibilities – though Waipuna was the dream top running option even then) and in the words of my now husband as we were leaving following our first visit – ‘we don’t need to look anywhere else, this is the one’. The team, location, venue facilities unbeatable.
Clean, tidy, coffee and tea offered to be made for us throughout! The best cooked breakfasts.
Our wedding weekend went without an issue, the staff going above and beyond to help out with set up, smooth transitions throughout the wedding and even pack down post wedding! Sarah even helped with my wedding dress train (in sneaky stealth mode as not to be in photos) as we entered the ceremony.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts team; we cannot find a single negative thing to say – and neither could any of our guests!

Book Waipuna for your wedding, or even just a luxurious few nights away! You won’t be disappointed, and we will definitely be heading back for a staycation


From the beginning we knew Waipuna Estate would be the most amazing place for our wedding, and we weren’t wrong!


Love Waipuna! Excellent Accommodation & Wedding Venue A++ . We had our wedding here and it was the best venue. We stayed the night on our wedding night in the beautiful Kowhai Room which we absolutely loved. The magic of Waipuna Estate as a wedding venue is priceless. The staff are so friendly, welcoming and professional. Each and every staff member went out of their way to make our day special. Sarah is just so amazing at what she does organising down to every last detail, for our day to run smoothly. We highly recommend Waipuna Estate for Accommodation and Wedding Venue A+++


Waipuna was the only venue we looked at, and we fell in love with it straight away. We absolutely loved the beautiful views, the fact that we were able to stay the night before and the night of our wedding, the great relationships Sarah had with different vendors, and of course the most amazing staff!

Sarah, Fi, Tammi and their fantastic team went above and beyond to ensure my now husband and I, and all our guests had the best experience and the most incredible wedding. Thank you so so much. There was never anything that the team wouldn’t do for us and our bridal party. We can’t wait to come back! Thanks again!


Absolutely amazing experience!!
The staff were incredible, tending to our every need and making the whole experience an absolute dream.
