  • Lovely and clean and amazingly relaxing

    Lovely and clean and amazingly relaxing. We have an 18 month old son who loved to potter around their gardens and look at the cows and other friendly animals! Vilna and Pier were lovely hosts. The Apple Pie was so lovely that Vilna baked for us. Thank you for having us and we look forward to returning one day!

  • Beautiful rural location but only 10 minutes to Rotorua

    Beautiful rural location but only 10 minutes to Rotorua. Well equipped, clean and comfortable accommodation. Having access to the stream and farm is lovely for the children. This was our third stay and they had requested we spend more time on the farm because they enjoy it so much ??
