Rehutai is the homestead built around 1895 between Menzies Bay and Decanter Bay, on the eastern coast of Banks Peninsula, by John Henry Menzies (c.1840–1919). Menzies was an accomplished carver and cabinet maker and made studies of Māori patterns which he included in his carvings and painted decorations at Rehutai. Menzies also published a book of Māori patterns in 1910. St Lukes is the Anglican church located at Little Akaloa (near Rehutai) and was designed by Menzies and built in 1906. The church is decorated within with Māori patterns both carved and painted. Together St Lukes and Rehutai were two of the most significant buildings on Banks Peninsula.
Rehutai was recently demolished. The whakairo and kōwhaiwhai featured in these images is now in storage at Okains Bay Museum. St Lukes still survives.
