Nestled in the floor and head of the Takaka Valley Golden Bay.Outstanding views in every direction surrounded by awe-inspiring mountains.

Visit the film locations of The HOBBIT AND LORD OF THE RINGS. You will be in staying in MIDDLE EARTH.

Soak up the lush velvet greens of the pasture to the stark grey of the scree runs with every imaginable shade in between from the Chalet alfresco deck.This is just when you wake up to the call of the Goldfinch and Tui birds in the morning. As the day unfolds so do the colors and hue to magnificent evening shades. The environment is a symphony of Rest, Relaxation and Recovery.

You will be staying on a working deer, cattle and game farm with tame Red Deer to get up close and friendly with as well as a small flocks of turkeys, chickens and ducks. Also Bob our working dog and his companion Bella.

In the evening you will be able to watch the colors change to the sound of the Thrush singing good night. At night you will be blown away by the expanse of twinkling stars and thoughts of the infinite universe.

The farm has walks through native bush and pine plantations where further views can be soaked up.

The chalet is self-contained but if you want to be waited on we do that as well with full scrumptious organic meals either served in the chalet or in the main farmhouse.If you want to become part of our family for your stay you can. We cater for exclusive individual needs.

    Fantastic chalet in a lovely location. Very spacious and comfortable, really couldn't ask for anything more. One of the best places I've stayed -- happily recommend to others.

    Accomodations were spacious and well-appointed; it's just like living in a home away from home. The area itself is beautiful and convenient for sightseeing. I think the only thing to be aware of is that internet in the area is not easy, cheap, or unlimited. For that reason, it's best to work with Ivor on internet usage.
