 Really good size bach with everything you need. Well kept both inside & out. 

Okepuha Station - Unique coastal farm stay

 Okepuha is, as advertised, converted shearers' quarters but the beds are comfortable & everything required for a great holiday is provided. Eggs, strawberries & fresh herbs included. It is a somewhat isolated location but offers a unique opportunity for guests to experience life on a remote station in beautiful surroundings.
