Cute, cozy 2 bedroom cottage nestled in a bush setting. In the evening you can listen the native Kiwi & Morepork living in bush opposite the cottage and wake up to abundant birdsong, in this peaceful rural environment. We have everything you need to make your stay comfortable plus no noise, no traffic, no people, no light pollution, no cell phone coverage, a great get away from urban life, a chance to reconnect with nature and de-stress and recharge and experience farm life, for the curious.

This was the cutest little farm house with the best views. Isolated with tree covered mountains and cows surrounding. The beds were comfortable and the water pressure was amazing. Maxine have us fresh milk for breakfast, and invited us to go watch them milk the cows.

You will NOT regret your stay here. We drove up from Wellington eager to be away from the city business and we found JUST what we were looking for. Maxine and her husband were a dream! They greeted us and communicated in great detail about our accommodations and when we could…

Maxine's farm stay was incredible! Bruce had great suggestions for touring the town and our children loved milking the cows. We were also able to feed the baby calf, feed the chickens, pet the pegme goat and see all kinds of wildlife. My husband and I took a spin on the four…
