Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay! Jane was very hospitable and kind and the caravan was cozy. We enjoyed milking the cows with Kevin and tasting the fresh dairy products. We decided to take up the meal option and enjoyed some delicious handmade spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. We also had a great horseback riding lesson with Mariana. Thank you for the great stay Jane, Kevin, Mariana, and Josh!

  • We felt very welcome at Jane's accommodation and it was a very nice experience sleeping in the caravan. Jane was also giving us helpful tips for where to get food as well as activities.

  • Even though we were ostensibly in the Papamoa Beach area to see the various tourist attractions, one of the major highlights of our time in NZ has definitely been our stay with Jane, the family and the animals! We enjoyed the super fresh and delicious meals immensely, and we had a great time chatting with the family and learning quite a bit about holistic, healthy living. I even got a chance to milk one of the cows, which was quite a bit more fun than I expected. So glad we didn't just stay at some stinky motel or overpriced B & B! Highly recommended for anyone interested in getting a bit off the beaten path!
