Waineke Cabin Rules


Reservations are made only through the cabin coordinator.

The cabins may be reserved for a maximum of one week.

Confirmation of the reservation will be given two weeks prior to the requested date and only after full payment and the mandatory Indemnification Agreement is received. Please note that we are not able to refund any payments if the cabin user defaults on the reservation in part or in full.

Those with an unpaid balance from a previous rental will not be allowed make further reservations.

Keys will not be released until full payment and the mandatory Indemnification Agreement is received.

Upon Arrival: Please note that pets and open campfires are not allowed!

  1. Take caution when stepping out of your vehicle as the grass may be slippery.
  2. Gas, electricity and water should have been left on. In the event that the water needs to be turned on or off, the valve for Cabin A is located at the left-hand corner of the cabin; the valve for Cabin B is located at the base of the entry ramp.
