About Us

CUE Haven is owned and managed by the CUE Haven Community & Management Trusts.

The trustee and advisory boards include individuals who have diverse backgrounds and expertise in kaitiakitanga, environmental sciences, business, finance, IT, project management and community work.

CUE Haven is the vision of Aucklanders Thomas & Mahrukh Stazyk, who bought the property in 2003 with the intention of building a retreat where individuals would come together to share ideas and  learn from each other.   However, concerned about the effect of grazing on the water quality and the lack of public native bush reserves in fast growing Auckland, they decided instead to restore the farm into a native nature reserve for the community to use and enjoy into perpetuity.

The property was gifted to the CUE Haven Community Trust on 1 July 2017.

Our Vision

C-U-E stands for Cultivating Understanding and Enlightenment and it is our hope that CUE Haven will become a place where people can explore nature, disconnect from technology, relax and share ideas and cultivate an understanding about themselves, other people and the universe.

The CUE Haven restoration project which began in 2008 is an excellent example of individuals, government and the private sectors all working together for the common good and to create something special for generations to enjoy.  Do refer to Our Supporters page to see the list of all the amazing contributors to the project.

In addition to the protection provided to the native trees in the CUE Haven trusts, once the plantings reach the required maturity, the trees will also be protected with a QEII Open Spaces Trust covenant.
