Such a great stay! All of the animals were very friendly and it was so fun to see them. The views were beautiful. Breakfast in the morning was nice as well. Only about a 20min drive to Waitomo caves.

We loved our stay so much that it became one of the highlights of our NZ trip. Avril is a very accommodating host and her rescued animals are sweet and curious. We had so much fun!

Great spot for backpackers! Super unique and cool experience getting to stay on a farm! We thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the animals around. The place was clean and layout was spacious! I would recommend and stay here again!(:
