Thank-you to the Stewart family - Bruce, Halima and the children for allowing us a very warm and hospitable stay at Tapu Te Ranga Marae. I stayed there with the international team for the launch of the World March for Peace and Non Violence in Wellington, on Ocober the 2nd, 2009. Their hospitality was very considerate, friendly and warm. We all had what we needed, were well fed and had warm sleeping quarters. The Marae itself is an amazing place and well worth visiting. It is set on acres of natural bush in Island Bay close to downtown Wellington. A must to visit. Thank-you, Aroha Sandra

After reading the Architectural Centre Newsletter…. ‘Unemployed
Maori Youth built an eleven level house out of everyone’s rubbish
the ‘by product’ is The Worlds both largest and tallest fully wooden
house built of recycled material…..a ‘standing-place.’ I had to see it.
What they achieved borders on unbelievable…. What do you think?

Tena koe te Rangatira me to whanau.
You welcomed us with open arms and made us part of your whanau. Your whare embraced us with warmth and care and looked after us during our stay.
It was wonderful to see the dreams and aspirations of one person come to life in what you have built, a whare for the many. You are like a masiah thinking of the well-being of others and ensuring if anything happens, there will always be a place at Tapu te Ranga for all ethnics.
Ahakoa kaore matou i haere ki te kitia te nuinga o to whenua me whakarongo ki nga korero i mua o te whenua me nga pou, ka mau matou ki o manaakitanga me to aroha ki a matou.
Nga mihi maioha, nga mihi aroha nga mihi nui kia koe Bruce me to whare.
Arohatinonui. Te katoa.


Thankyou for supporting Kingi's whanau [2006], Faith's whanau to [2004] to bring their tanihanga to Tapu te Ranga - the nearest place they could call home - and more importantly 'e turangawaewae mo matou'.


Hi there,

I am from the Art of Living Foundation. We have used the Marae on several occassions and we find ourselves drawn to this place.

Its a very scenic, spacious place and the owners of this place are absolutely amazing! We had a Art of Living refresher course last Saturday, and people who came for the course just loved the place :)

The owners of this place made us feel so welcomed and they were a part of our event too. We left the place feeling that we were a part of their family :) And its absolutely amazing how they respect people from different cultures and provides an absolute insight to our Maori tradition.

I will strongly recommend this place to all :)
