Come and stay in our Historic Stables. Located at the back of Talisman Nursery in a tranquil setting amongst mature trees.

Built, in the early 1920's with locally made bricks. It was used to house draught horses and equipment, as part of the Mangahao – Haywards power reticulation scheme. The Stables were converted into a beautiful cottage during the late 1980’s with the renovation work being done by a conservation architect.

The Stables sleep up to 3 adults, but is ideal as a nice cosy retreat for a couple. Spend a weekend relaxing and re-energising in our self catering Stables. Enjoy walks in the nearby Otaki Forks, or along the beautiful Kapiti Beaches. Other local attractions include; Otaki’s many outlet stores, local restaurants and cafes, the Otaki Maori Racecourse and Otaki Golf Club.

Alternatively combine a relaxing stay with garden planning. Bring your garden plans and ideas and receive a free consultation with Stephen. View our mature native plants in our arboretum and our wide selection of plants for sale. See our website for a plant list.

  • Such a beautiful converted stables and property

    Such a beautiful converted stables and property. It was private and emersed in nature, exactly what we needed. Very tidy and clean.

  • Fantastically well presented

    Fantastically well presented. Spotlessly clean with everything we needed. Wonderfully peaceful and cosy. The building is full of character and the interior decor is well thought through. It was everything it advertised to be and so much more - which is always a pleasant surprise. We would definitely go back.
