We stayed in the farm cottage which was very clean and tidy. The heat pump warmed up the house very well and all the rooms were presented nicely. The kids loved feeding the animals in the morning and the staff were very friendly. We had all the privacy we wanted and the owner was very helpful.

Absolutely charming Kiwi experience. Warm reception with thorough tour, comfortable and cute (we were in the farm house), and we very much enjoyed feeding the animals in the morning! Highly recommend!

This is a great place to stay! The attention to detail of the property was outstanding - the lights, the cool qwerks, everything was superb. The view was great and the lamas just over the fence were no problem at all.
