Stayed for 3 nights in January 2014. Nice rural location, easy to find and not too far to drive to shops and attractions. Hosts Rosemarie and Richard very friendly and eager to help out at all times. Accommodation is fully self contained so we could cook our own meals if we wished which was great. It was like having our... More

Stayed in April 2012 as my family had not visited the area before and also wanted to learn about alpacas, so this was a good opportunity to combine the 2. The owners, Richard and Rosemary made us feel very welcome and at home. Even the owners dog Cassidy made us feel at home ! The studio is ample size for... More

While this is a wonderful self-contained studio unit, and the hosts are genuinely lovely, the breakfast was not adequate. Advertised as a 'cooked and continental breakfast', the hosts had simply put some food inside the fridge for you to help yourself in the morning. This included some ready-made scrambled eggs, which you had to cook yourself in the microwave. The... More

Thank you for your feedback. We have taken on board your comments; future communications with guests at booking time are more clear as to the nature of the breakfast offering. We have often found guests are so relaxed here that they over-sleep normal "breakfast hours" and appreciate being able to get up at their leisure, in the tranquility of the... More

We enjoyed our one night at this farmstay. Our hosts were friendly and we learnt new facts about alpacas. It was an experience to feed them for all of us. Our self contained accommodation had some lovely innovative touches and the view with the Bay of Plenty coastline in the distance was awesome. Despite the fact our hosts were taking... More

Thanks for the feedback. Quality is one of our core principles and we are pleased you liked the setup. While we are situated just outside the Tauranga city limits it certainly isn't a hinderance - It is a short trip to: Tauranga Airport 25 mins Mt Maunganui 30 mins Bay Park Speedway 35 mins Waihi Beach 30 mins Athenree Gorge...
