Sadly we only had one night at this lovely property - we would have very much liked to stay longer. The property is only a couple of years old and consists of the owner's house and the adjoining cottage, both of which have been built to a very high standard. It is situated on a hill and has stunning views... More

Picturesque meadows, white sheeps grazing on rolling green fields amid a beautiful mountainous background - whatever expectations we had before for our first farm stay, it exceeded by miles. The guest house were impeccably clean and cozy. On the first night there, I was awoken by my wife to a roof window full of stars! Win and Hendrick were warm,... More

I can only echo what other reviewers have already said. This may be the best night's sleep in NZ, and certainly one of the best lodgings for the price. The hosts are both wonderful and helpful without being intrusive, the cottage is cozy and well- furnished, and the views incredible. Plus the location puts you in a great place to... More

This was our first farmstay and we were lucky to be able to arrange it at all as we called up only a day ahead (really try not to do this, for you might just miss your chance). We had arranged for a bus to Te Anau and Winn kindly volunteered to pick us up from the bus point. But... More

My friends and I (4 of us) was travelling in south island and stayed in Dusky Ridges when we were in Te Anau. The accomodation provided was absolutely fantastic. Clean, homely and comfortable. The decor was tastefully done. Win and Hendrik welcome us like a family. They were friendly and hospitable. Win also prepared specialty such as venison as well... More

We loved our stay at Dusky Ridges and are missing it terribly now we are home. Win and Hendrik could not have been any more accommodating and lovely during our three day stay. We loved the townhouse, it was absolutely spotless but very homely at the same time, and the kitchen supplies and ability to make our own food in... More

Our boys (5 and 8) and my wife and I will not soon forget our taste of farm life at Dusky Ridges. This farm, accommodation and whole experience really left our family with great memories. Thank you Win and Henrik for your kindness and hospitality and thanks to the people who took the time to review this place so that... More

Wow! Win and Henrik outdo themselves! I must echo other guests in saying this was the best of all our farmstays in New Zealand. We had many wonderful stays, but this one would be a challenge to best. Win is an ever so engaging hostess with a wonderful heart of gold. We enjoyed her company so very much. This is... More

My 12-year-old son and I did a farm stay with Win and Henrik and had a marvelous time in June 2011. They installed us in the unit outside the main house and it was well-furnished, beautiful, spacious, modern and comfortable. They kitchen was stocked with delicious food and a plate of cookies was awaiting upon arrival. The farm itself presents... More

This was best accommodation during our stay in NZ. The apartment was perfect and so beautifully decorated. The owners had thought of everything and provided lots of beautiful food for the stay. The farm was lovely and the views amazing. The beds were so comfy. My children loved staying at the farm.
