Your accommodation features a funky retro-styled studio room with great sunlight and views of the valley and river, and a super comfortable double bed. If you are travelling with young children, we can provide a travel cot and/or bassinette to suit one toddler (under two) and one infant (up to 3 months) in this room.

There is a separate single bedroom for another adult or child.

Bathroom has a simple-to-use clivus multrum toilet, shower, handbasin, and handcrafted soap.

Outdoors, you can enjoy the outdoor hot tub heated by firewood, and firepit for evening relaxation. Swing on the hammock, get cosy on the outdoor chairs, or dine on the picnic table. You can cook alfresco too with the provided BBQ.

Take time out from your devices to play supplied games and reconnect with your loved ones.

Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely fab weekend away
This place was great, beautiful spot for a weekend out of the city for me and my two girls. Jackie and Alistair were fantastic hosts, really worth letting them give you a tour of the farm to hear all about the things they are doing there, including helping feed the cows! But also a perfect spot just to sit in the wood-fired hot tub and relax.

4/5 Good

Lovely break from the city
Everything was lovely and clean, beautiful views over the property. Much needed quiet time. Road is a little noisy during the day, but not a huge deal.

5/5 Excellent

Kaitoke conquering BFFs
We arrived to the quaintest place, welcoming host and with an abundance of small thought-out details that just made our night away from home a blissful experience. The hot tub was great, the beds were comfortable and we would have liked to explore a bit more. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely retro styled retreat, great selection of books and the outdoor bath was fabulous!
Easy for a quick retreat/ getaway for the weekend and well positioned to access either coast or central attractions.
