The Space

Stay out in the country overlooking farm land and a view out to sea (where you may get to see a Cruise Ship passing by) from the spacious upstairs bedroom number 1 or enjoy the view out towards the hills to Rotorua in bedroom 2.

Enjoy the peace and quiet and the night sky.

We are located just 20 minutes from the Kiwi Capital of the World - Te Puke. Don't forget to get some photo's with our giant Kiwi while you are here!

We are also just an hours drive from Rotorua International Airport or Tauranga Airport.

While you are here, experience the surf at the local beaches, the local restaurants eg 'The Trading Post' or the 'Fush Chip' (these are 10 minutes away), spend a day visiting the Geysers and Rainbow Springs in Rotorua(40-50minutes). If you are keen for an adventure, why not travel another 40 minutes from Rotorua to Taupo, where you can experience the natural beauty of the lake. Travel to Matamata to Hobbiton just over a hour away or go the extra distance to Waitomo Caves to see the Glo-worms or do Black water rafting.

Please note that you will need your own Transport and if you are arriving around Dinner time please note you are best to pick up something to eat before you get here, as it is 10 minutes to the closes Fish and Chip shop at Paengaroa or Pukehina or 20 minutes back to Te Puke to the local takeaways.

Continental breakfast is included in the price. Please note that evening meals can be arranged upon request at an additional cost.

If you are a family special rates apply for Children that are 15 and under.

If you are wanting to do your own cooking this is fine. However, there will be an extra change of $10 per day.

When you stay with me, you will not only be able to get up and close to a sheep, but we will provide you with true kiwi experience.

I enjoy the outdoors and live on a lifestyle block. During the week I work as a School Teacher. I have had the privilege of travelling to the USA, UK, Australia and many other places. I enjoy meeting people from all across the world and I would like to share my country with visitors from overseas and let them get a small taste of what Kiwi life is like. My interest are cooking, fishing, reading a good book, working on my lifestyle block and spending time with my family.
