    Excellent and unique stay, the Alpacas are right outside the window and the hosts were super friendly and easy to deal with. We would stay again and would recommend to others visiting New Plymouth.

    The cottage is in a perfect position -very quiet in the countryside but close to New Plymouth for outings. The alpacas are entertaining and lovely to watch grazing. The property is perfectly maintained and the cottage is warm and well appointed.

  • The studio had been thoughtfully organised for complete ease and comfort

    The studio had been thoughtfully organised for complete ease and comfort. A total joy to spend time with the alpacas and the other animals, and to just relax after an amazing walk around Mt Taranaki. Everything is taken care of....

    The cottage was really lovely, spacious and well-equipped. It's in a pleasant rural setting, with cute alpacas, sheep and dogs. Definitely worth a visit.

  • The property exceeded our expectations

    The property exceeded our expectations. Everything about it was exceptional, the tranquility, the tastefully decorated cottage which had everything we needed, the alpacas roaming outside the cottage, the other animals and the proximity to a major town. Couldn't fault anything and we hope to return one day. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. A wonderful experience !!!!
