If you value waking up to the dawn chorus of a vast variety of birds, forest walks, waterfalls, swimming in rivers, home-cooked meals of home-grown produce, and friendly folk, then this is the homestay for you! My friend and I spent a lot of time and money touring the South Island and walking the Milford Track. While we enjoyed ourselves,... More

We recently had a short stay at this gorgeous, rustic backpackers. We are already planning a return visit. Jenny, Steve, Masha and Zana were so welcoming and we loved being involved in the daily life on the farm. We collected eggs, fed chickens and ducks, and walked around the paddocks. The birdsong in the surrounding bush is so musical, especially... More

We, a family of four, stayed there for a night we could have easily stayed a couple more. The owner a absolutely charming and very polite and restrained in a very charming way. We ate there, bought the organic produce from the farm, and cooked it in the main kitchen. We stayed in the main house upstairs Ina fabulously comfortable... More

We stayed in the bunkhouse with our family. You are basically in the middle of the farm, and hear roosters, wake up and find horses being saddled to round up cattle, and ducks wandering around - certainly a very authentic farmstay! My wife and daughter went on a horse ride with one of the hosts' family members (which was free!)... More

It was a lovely nice welcome in the dark night. Steve and Jenny are friendly and likeable and we really enjoyed our just 2 nights stay there. The warm bath in the nature is a good way to watch the stars in the night. The dorm was clean and tidy and the rocking sheep is an eyecatcher for every age.... More

We stayed at this place as it was close to our next destination, which is Rangitata rafting. It was an amazing stay! Our room, with a double bed, was obviously thoughtfully decorated. A heater kept it warm throughout the night. The toilet was not in the room, but it was just about 1 metre away. There was a fireplace in... More
