Our trip ends at Pete's Farm. I believed l can speak for most Malaysian in general as we always dream to stay in a "farm". Let me start by saying its one of the best thing our group has done. After 2 weeks of driving around the South we were blessed with such hospitality from Gaye n Pete. This farm... More

Thanks so much for your great review. Pete and I are glad that you had such a great time. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we hope to see you all again real soon. New Zealand is such a lovely country especially the south island that you could come back every year and still not see everything. More

Away from the City surrounded by sheep and alpaca with a comfy bed and a cup tea in the morning, what could be better? Oh the morning demonstration of sheep shearing, feeding the alpaca, and buying woll products from the shop. Excellent, friendly hosts. And a real sheep dog.

We spent the last night of our 14-day trip around the south island and it was a perfect ending. The kids loved the animals, Pete the sheep dog, the sheep, the lamb, the alpacas. The cottage is spacious and we finally could spread out all our stuff and repackage for the flight home. The breakfast was wonderful and muffins delicious.... More

Pete also very kindly took them out on a tractor ride one afternoon. Pete and Gaye were so welcoming and our kids loved playing with their grandchildren... More

Kids enjoyed. We spend 2 nights there. The kids went with Pete everytime Pete showed new people around. They enjoyed the animals as well as the trampoline too. As said in many reviews- fantastic hospitality from both Pete and Gayle. Can see the passion and love from both of them for their farm and their house! Thanks again to pete... More
