My husband and I loved this farmstay! It was such a cozy little cottage off of the main house, which a comfy bed, tv, bathroom, and a small room for kids. The cottage looked right at the farm, so we occasionally had a group of cows hanging nearby. Our hosts were so kind and were really great about accommodating for... More

We had an interesting tour of the farm during cutting and a pleasure to meet the next two generations. Mike and Helen showed us genuine hospitality with breakfast and directions to walks and Mount Sunday.

Good old fashioned true country hospitality, we had 2 kids under 5 and I am sure the play, sky, mountain and breakfast were highlight of their 2 weeks in NZ. Mike and Helen go above and beyond and make you feel like you are the long awaited visiting rellies

Mike & Helen definitely make you feel like one of the family. This was our second stay in the cottage in the garden and we were very comfortable. We were even invited back to watch the All Black vs Australis Bledisloe Cup match. Unfortunately the 12-12 score was not the result we wanted.

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
