THE WHARF HUB - travel back in time
Opotiki, North Island, New Zealand
Additional Location Information
The Wharf Hub is set just 30m from the waters edge. Following the 1964 flood a stop bank system was built to protect the town and you. You can leave your car parked at The Wharf Hub property and walk 5 minutes into Opotiki's main shopping area, where you can read of our history, visit the Museum, get good coffee at cafes, buy sports equipment, visit the Banks, and get meals, etc.
Opotiki is a poorer socio economic town and your stay here helps improve the outlook of locals.
In 2012 the new Motu Trails sand dunes walkway/cycleway opened. This is becoming very popular and you can start your walk or ride from the wharf outside.

Additional notes from owner
The Wharf Hub offers two stay options. For the independent sorts who have transport and just need some directions then there's the Self Directed Stays quoted here at $60 a night per person. For example, this suits those staying to take on the famed Motu Trails cycle tracks and come with their own bikes.
The second option is Guided Stays. This suits those who like more local information so they can get the most out of their short stay time in Opotiki, East Coast. Guided stays also offer full tuition, greater security, transport if required, and includes any gear needed such kayaks, fishing rods, mountain bikes. The rate is $100 per person a night.
We have 4 bedrooms and many varied sleeping options available and aim to accommodate you in a room to your tastes and individual needs.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Great stay with a local guy
We stayed there with a total of 4 end of november 2012. The 2 friends with us recommend Lloyd and as we were looking for a place to meet them "The Wharf Hub" was the choice. We had a pleasant stay. The house is spacious, "typical" new zealand style with a beautiful wooden floor. The fire place was not in use (it was always summer) but cozy nevertheless. The sleping rooms are tidy and well spaced and you can make use of all the kitchen utilities you need for preparing your meal. There is no ensuite bathroom, but the one is clean. We also made use of the fishing activities he offers out on the sea. The red snappers, king fishes.. were then prepared together with Loyd and we had a great meal (and doggy bag for our next aim). Opotiki is maybe not the most interesting place to visit but still in the very near of towns like Whakatane. The owner provides everything you need and is ready to share his local knowledge about fishing, marine life and Maori culture and this amkes the stay so beatiful and unique.
Beautiful house in a nice location
We stayed here in winter time and we enjoyed the spacious house with its beautiful wooden floor. The fire place was cozy and we felt right at home. Even though it was winter, we enjoyed the crisp sunny mornings and quite warm days, with a lot of outdoor activities on the river mouth and the beach. It is really away from the crowd yet still in reach of bigger towns like Whakatane.
