“A perfect place to relax and regain energy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2011

Just by coincidence i stopped at Okuti Garden and was immediately engaged by the beauty of the place. It is hidden in the "mountains" close to little river (where you have to visit and taste the bakery of River Cafe - it's a must-do) surrounded by bushes and trees with a great look on the Bank Peninsula Hills, very quiet and cosy, with an nice open kitchen and as well an open shower with free wood view. You can't better taking a shower after a hard hike or bike tour. I stayed as well in the truck and loved it too. I had the best sleep during my NZ tour and so decided to stay 3 days and do day trips from there. The owners are very lovely and i would definitely stay again here when i will return to Bank Peninsula.

This was my favorite place that we stayed in New Zealand. The owners were amazingly nice, and Bronwyn the house truck was cozy and lovely and perfect. Our friends immensely enjoyed their stay in the yurt as well. We met great people the evening we were here, and loved walking around the gardens and meeting the pigs! I would live here if I could.

  • Liked — The house truck and the people
  • Disliked — Can't think of anything!
