At El Rancho we've been hosting big events for decades.
Whether it's a grassroots camping experience for young people you're keen on, or something more sophisticated for an older crowd.....we've got it covered.
We're located in a lush green setting of over 60 acres, right alongside the Waikanae River and just a short walk to Waikanae Beach.
We offer a full range of accommodation and catering options.
I just really wanted to say a huge thank you to the El Rancho team for providing such an incredible environment for our first unSPOKEN WORD Youth Forum. All of our youth and leaders absolutely loved the space and all of the El Rancho staff!
The venue was so perfect for everything we needed and wanted to do and I've heard from multiple participants that, "there was a special wairua about the place that you could feel as soon as you drove through the gates".

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality over the weekend! Your staff were so helpful, kind and polite. The young man who was on call for the weekend was awesome. He was relaxed yet thorough and nothing was too much trouble.
The kitchen staff were amazing too (especially the lovely Chef who was on in the mornings. What an absolute ray of sunshine and blessing she is!) We really enjoyed our interaction with all the staff and the food was fabulous. We felt as if you'd all gone to a special effort just for us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
