Kia ora Bruce and whanau,

My American student visitors and I had a fantastic visit to Tapu Te Ranga. Your daughter was an exceptional guide and both her and your stories expanded our minds and spirits. Thank you! Your Whare Ukaipo O Mahinarangi is up there on a World Scale, by it's story of Alchemy (making something from nothing) that created It's Architecture. Then all topped off with Robin Kahukiwa's outstanding creation about This super woman Mahinarangi! I felt it was also about The Maori story of The Female Energy!

Thank you so much for our stay, we felt so welcomed. We needed a place for 21 of us as our father, papa, husband, brother uncle was in wellington hospital. I'm glad that we found this whare. It was a place where we could relax sleep enjoy each others company. A quiet place, a healing place. We will come again one day when he is well. We also find ourselves non stop talking about our special time spent, thank you thank you thank you. Much aroha!!!!

Kia ora Bruce
We had a wonderful stay at the Marae. The tamariki loved it, and asked if we could return to the marae instead of going home! What a very special place and people you have! As I said, I would love to live there, and would love to have a marae like this for our whānau in Carterton. The wairua, the manaakitanga, the whole marae is tino ataahua on so many levels. You, your people, your marae has created special and lasting memories for both tamariki and matua. You are all very inspiring, and we love your mahi, and your purakau...I could listen to you again and again. Very special and important messages you gave to my matua. Yesterday we looked at all the whakaahua, and they love te whare Tāne, and they want to draw the marae. We loved the hikoi into the ngahere, the tour, the warmth by the fire, running up the hill by the waterfall...nga mea katoa...a very special place to be. Nga mihi nui ki a koutou mo to manaaki, aroha, tō whānau, nga mea nui...

I took 18 journalism students from Whitireia Journalism to Tapu Te Ranga, and we hosted a series of guest speakers. It was the perfect environment to have the students start thinking outside of their normal realm of thinking, and the way they listen to people. The marae whanau looked after us so well, and the spaces had a spiritual sense that enhanced learning. Nga Mihi.

A stunning venue and great hosts. A big thanks to Bruce and your family for the whole day. We had a conference which included people from the North Island, South Island as well as Australia, and everyone had an amazing day. Starting with a nice Powhiri, and lovely stories, which lead nicely into our conference for the day.

We recommend Tapu Te Ranga Marae for your conference or events.

Friendly staff, very unique architecture, expansive grounds with a strong environmental message. Tapu Te Ranga Marae was also very conveniently located to central Wellington for us to complete our programme for the week.

Kia ora Bruce and whanau, thank you all so much for a lovely Saturday afternoon discussing Abrubt Climate Change with Guy McPherson. In discussions with different people who attended the hui, was the desire to get off the grid and live in communities.
Climate Change is warming the oceans and melting Arctic ice, so water levels are rising. I was not surprised to see new retaining walls going along the coast road between island bay and lyall bay. The rising tides are thrashing the coast line.
Lovely time at Taputeranga on Saturday, interesting for me being with the Manuhiri. Like viewing everything from a different perspective.
Wonderful afternoon, thank you 0x0

Had a wonderful 5 day stay at Tapu Te Ranga Marae with the Lifehack crew. It was the perfect way to start our journey as a team. An amazing space, culture and wonderful food. Thanks
