We stayed for one night before heading to Christchurch airport the next morning for our departing flight to home. Mike and Helen are great hosts and our conversations can go on for hours cos they are such an interesting couple. We stayed in a cottage next to their residence and it was clean and nice. We had dinner cooked by... More

This is just the most perfect place to stay. It's not just having your own cosy cottage, or the spectacular view across the farm to mountains so close you'd swear you could touch them. If you read the other reviews, you'd soon realise that it is Mike and Helen's hospitality and warm welcome that makes Glenview Farmstay so special. From... More

We stayed at Glenview for one night as we were passing through on our way to Wanaka. The little cottage we stayed in was perfect for us, 2 rooms one with a bunk bed for the kids, bathroom and AMAZING views of Mount Hutt. A private little outside area and Helen and Mike on hand for anything we needed. Helen... More

My family and I have just returned to Hong Kong from a skiing trip to New Zealand and stayed with Mike and Helen for 10 days. They made us feel very welcome and took excellent care of us. We were made to feel part of the family and thoroughly enjoyed our stay on their farm. Mike and Helen did their... More

We had intended staying in Methven in our campervan, but we decided to call in after seeing their roadside sign. We felt like something different to the side-by-side stacked in campervan caravan park stopover. We were only going to stay one night and ski Mt Hutt, but it was so easy and relaxing and comfortable we ended up staying for... More

Mike and Helen are such wonderful host that made our two-night stay at their Glenview Farm memorable. We arrived in the afternoon and had their home cooked dinner. The lamb was nice and the apple pie was soooo good. Oh, not to forget the delicious cookie Helen baked for us to take along for our Tranzalpine train ride the next... More

I was brought up on a farm so getting a chance to stay on a Kiwi one was something I was hoping for. I'm very glad we chose Glenview because it was just perfect. Mike and Helen are such wonderful hosts and we spent many happy hours chatting to them and learning about farming in NZ. Plus we had a... More

We arrived at Helen and Mike's place at about 5.15 in the afternoon to a warm welcome and a cup of tea. Before 6.00pm Mike had opened a bottle of very decent Pinot Noir to share before and with dinner. This level of hospitality continued for the three nights we shared with them on a large farm in the shadow... More

Greeeeeeen, snow capped mountains, warm hospitality....interesting (farm management etc). I could not recommend more highly! We were blessed with great weather after a fall of snow in summer... hence the views were special. Great hosts... very nice breakfast. So please we found this place.

I just love to visit Helen and Mike! Been there once then fell in love with them totally... couldnt help myself to just go back to visit them all the time. Most friendly kiwis, love people and REAL farmers! They do it simply for interest not income! I had took friends and family to their place to visit as well,... More
