About Us

The Grove Farm Stay is a luxurious, glamping experience, with two self-contained luxury yurts, 'The Grove' and 'Still Waters', nestled among mature avocado trees on an idyllic coastal property. Situated just 10 minutes drive west of Whakatane township and an easy stroll through the property to the idyllic white sand of the Thornton Beaches.

The Grove Farm Stay's central location ensures you are conveniently close to all that the beautiful Eastern Bay of Plenty has to offer. From crystal clear bush fringed lakes to the rugged and majestic Whale Island. The area literally has it all!

After returning from your day adventuring, enjoy the sheltered serenity of The Grove Farm Stay. Relax in the spa, kick back on the deck and soak in the ambiance of the enchanted forest like setting. 

At night you can light up the brazier and/or pizza oven, enjoy a meal cooked outdoors or in the conventional kitchen. But if you feel like a night off cooking then choose from a great selection of local cafes and restaurants.

"Wow! We absolutely loved our stay here in paradise!  My partner celebrated turning 40 here and we couldn't have asked for a more prefect place - the attention to detail sets it apart.  We are even considering 'Yurt living' as a real option for the future!!  The hot tub under the stars just took it to the next level.  Thanks so much!"
