our history

Welcome to Kaingahou Estate 

“Kaingahou” is a Maori word that translates to “New Home” (kainga means ‘home’ and hou means ‘new’). The name was chosen by the first owner of the property, Ditlev Gothardt Monrad, who built the estate in 1903.

Centrally located within the city of Palmerston North but away from the bustle, Kaingahou sits back from the road down a long driveway. The venue is versatile to host anything from weddings to intimate private dining experiences.
