Penelope is just the most welcoming host, making you feel as though kaituna is your home away from home. The setting is romantic and you cannot help but be relaxed. Oh and if you are lucky enough to sample Penelope's exquisite cooking, you will know what I mean when I say WOW!

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful homestead as part of his birthday treat. We were warmly welcomed by Penelope and shown to our spacious room with a magnificent four poster bed. Double doors led to a large sunroom; a perfect place to relax and enjoy the afternoon tea which Penelope delivered. The ham sandwiches were perfect. No-one seems... More

A friend took five of us on a "mystery" outing recently. The destination was the Kaituna Valley Homestead, about 45 mins from Christchurch. The day was bleak, but a very warm welcome awaited us at the Homestead. Penelope greeted us and showed us into her delightful living room complete with a lovely fire. The furniture is so comfortable it would... More

Yesterday I shared a delightful Saturday afternoon with 8 girlfriends enjoying 'High Tea' at Kaituna Valley Homestead. It was organized to celebrate a friend's mother's 89th birthday. The surroundings are beautiful, a taste of a bygone era. Picture fine English bone china, embroidered linen napkins, pots of tea and some of the most delicious and beautifully presented 'High Tea' morsels... More

I surprised my wife with a secret location for our Valentine's Day weekend away. Arriving at Kaituna, off the road to Akaroa, we were both enchanted with this well restored historic country home. We loved the location, setting and ambience of this majestic homestead tucked away in the cute Kaituna valley. Our gracious host Penelope treated us as VIP guests,... More

My Mother gifted my husband and I two wonderful nights away at Kaituna Homestead. It was a very special treat and one that was a perfect fit for us. The minute we drove up the driveway on a warm summers evening we felt that we had arrived to a little piece of England amongst the beautiful countryside of the Kaituna... More

Kaituna Homestead was by far the best place that I stayed at on my recent trip to New Zealand and might be one of the best places I have stayed anywhere. Both Alastair and Penalope look me in as if I was one of their own and showed me such hospitality that when I make a return trip to this... More

My husband's Christmas Gift for 2012 was a Secret, not revealed until I drove him through the gates of the Kaituna Homestead. How grand did the Homestead look as we drove past the trees and into the clearing, my first thoughts were WOW as I had only viewed the Homestead on the internet via a small advert in a local... More

The day of my wedding I spent the afternoon with friends and family getting ready and enjoying high tea in the Rhodes Suite. The light meal was delicious and the perfect amount for a pre-wedding lunch. The bedroom was huge with rustic elegant furnishings, beautiful modern country bathroom, and absolutely amazing wrap around sunroom. My husband and I spent the... More

A scrumptious high tea, a stroll through the gardens on a summer evening followed by a beautifully cooked three course meal of local produce, the excellent company of our host, a very well apointed room and full english breakfast the next morning. What a wonderful way to spend a special weekend. Penelope really knows how to make her guests feel... More
