Business for Sale Description

Freehold Country Guesthouse Business for Sale Pukeatua Waikato

Do you love nature and have a commitment to conservation? Enjoy treating guests from your kitchen? Looking for a supportive rural community, close to major towns? And ready to enjoy a fine lifestyle with real business returns?

Then Out in the Styx Guesthouse is for you.

Set up in the style of an eco-lodge, Out in the Styx nestles at the base of Maungatautari Mountain. Maungatautari is an inspiring place to visit – with 47kms of predator-proof fence enclosing 3400 hectares of virgin native bush in a sea of pastureland, it is the largest ecological island on mainland New Zealand. Nature walks ranging from 30 minutes to 6 hours enable visitors to enjoy this unique experience.

Out in the Styx Guesthouse is just a few hundred metres from the Maungatautari Mountain Visitor Centre and the only commercial operator nearby.

That location is also adjacent to the Waikato River Trail cycleway. The vendors operate a drop-off service for hikers/cyclists in their licensed passenger van, adding another dimension to ensure a steady flow of guests.

Half way between the key tourist attractions of Waitomo (45m) Rotorua and Hamilton (1h), and just 35 minutes from Hobbiton, the future of this business is assured.

Indeed, the potential is such that the current owners, after 23 years, would like to see the business they created taken to the next level and are looking to “pass the baton” to enthusiastic new owners.

Business Resources

Out in the Styx Guesthouse comprises:

  • Approx 0.85 Ha of beautiful natural garden, north facing with mountain views 
  • Energy efficient “passive” construction 
  • 6 ensuite double rooms, accommodating up to 20 guests 
  • Additional rooms available in the main house if not required by the owners 
  • 3 bunkrooms for up to 15 guests 
  • Licensed Restaurant and commercial kitchen 
  • 3 spa pools 
  • 4 bay garage 
  • Recycling shed 

The owners’ home is comfortable with wonderful views. Each of the 5 double bedrooms with ensuites opens directly onto a deck over the garden. Depending on need, these rooms are suitable for paying guests.

Community tennis courts, swimming pool, local hall and primary school are just across the road.

Out in the Styx welcomes guests on a “bookings only” basis which streamlines the operation and allows the owners time for R&R as required. It caters particularly to ecology enthusiasts, hikers, educational groups, small conferences, cyclists, tourists, diners and those looking for a casual getaway with friends. It is popular for weddings and family functions, too.

Marketing is largely word of mouth and through the Out in the Styx website: listing on online booking agencies will see immediate revenue growth.

This is a unique opportunity to take over a well-established and highly regarded operation with a rare combination of lifestyle and income. The business shows sustainable 6 figure surpluses and is poised for massive growth.
