Stayed here for 2 nights during week on South Island, and I will forever think of Pete as personifying the NZ farmer--knowledgeable about lots of things, handy at even more, and willing to share his smile and home to foreigners and make them feel welcome. This is farmstay at its best, and not just for families. Stayed in the newest... More

It was a different experience staying in the farm, kids had loads of fun with the sheeps, alpacas. They even had a small playground with trampoline, sandplay area & swing.Kids were fully content with the said things.The hosts Pete & Gaye were very cordial too. But the only problem was our 1 bedroom cottage, it was very compact and congested.... More

We had our lovely hosts Pete and Gaye. We had a great time chit chatting and the foods provided were nice. It was interesting witnessing the sheep shearing. We played with the other cute sheeps and feeding the alpacas. We would love to come back again. Don't forget us Pete and Gaye. We're the bunch of Malaysians on the 16th... More

We stayed 2 night in the 2-bedroom cottage. It was heavenly. Waking up to the crisp air and the sound of the sheeps. Pete and Gaye are wonderful hosts. Our kids (9 and 13 years old) loved the stay so much that they made us promise to do a longer stay in our next visit. Thanks Pete and Gaye for... More

Stayed in The House for 1 night. All room are so clean and bed are so comfortable. The hosts (Pete and Gaye) are so warm and friendly. All of us enjoy the fun feeding the sheep and cute alpacas. 100% recommend for this farm stay. No regret! You will love it.

We had booked a room in the modern farm house, but were upgraded to Cottage 1. The cottage was wonderfully appointed... More
