We typically do not chose B&B preferring anonymity of hotels but we intrigued by staying at the farm house and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip. The hosts have an amazing ability to offer suggestions / company when desired while providing you with the privacy you require. We used Beachfront Farmstay as a gateway to Oparara... More

We had a very enjoyable stay for only one night with Dianne and Russel. The room was spacious, nice and very private. We also booked the dinner option and Dianne cooked a delicious meal, it was a very nice evening with an interesting conversation and some nice wine. We enjoyed our stay very much.

This stay was truly wonderful. Diane and Russell are a breed of their own. They were kind. welcoming and generous. Dianne's cooking was excellent and the accommodation, of the highest order, was very comfortable with privacy well respected. Beyond the essentials(food and accommodation) both Dianne and Russell were more than generous with their time and help. No question these are... More

My Mum and I stayed with Dianne and Russell for two nights as part of our West Coast adventure. Mum wanted something different from the usual motel/hotel accommodation experience, and staying here did not disappoint! The accommodation was homely and the food wonderful. Dianne's love of cooking showed in her food, and the amazing breakfast set you up for a... More

This was a comfortable stay and a memorable experience. I'm not always up for a B&B stay, just to lend some perspective. But we were so glad we chose this spot to spend a couple of nights while exploring the area's worthwhile sights. Karamea itself, by the way, is a sleepy town, not in a lovely quaint way, but rather,... More

Russell and Dianne don't offer the usual experience. This is a working farm with terrific hosts and food, a wonderful setting and hospitality and a room that is an A. Dianne is a master cook using only local fresh items, many from her garden. How long since you've had ice cream made from cows you are looking at? Russell was... More

Located off the beaten track in Karamea, NZ, Russell and Diane Anderson heaped friendly , family hospitality upon us on their 700 cow dairy farm. The well appointed and tastefully furnished room supplied with a King sized bed had the best mattress ever. Our room although attached to the large airy farmhouse, was private, It had its own lovely porch... More
