  • Fantastic chalet in a lovely location

    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.

  • Very clean and tidy

    Very clean and tidy. Nice location on farm land, very pleasant sitting out on the sunny deck in the evening. Would come stay again. Probably better suited for a group of 4 though we were comfortable enough in our group of 6.

  • This farm stay is extremely charming

    This farm stay is extremely charming. Stayed for two nights and considered this one of the highlights of our trip to the South Island. Would recommend to anyone :)

  • The location was only 20 min

    The location was only 20 min. from Takaka township. Easy access to everything. If I knew how much there was to do, I would of stayed more than 2 days.
