Farmstay | Mahia Beach | #17503
The Quarters is superbly appointed cottage accommodation on Te Au, the coastal extensive sheep and beef farm of June and Malcolm Rough at Mahia, Hawkes Bay. Its elevated site gives magnificent views of the Mahia Peninsula and the coastline up towards Gisborne.
The kitchen is fully equipped, though delicious homemade meals are available. Fresh baked bread awaits you with complimentary fresh cooked crayfish in the fridge when possible.
The living areas are extremely comfortable with large glass doors opening to the decks with panoramic views.
On the farm, activities include scenic walks laid out up the coast and to the river. The walks are for all ranges of fitness, with a full river walk of a 10 km return. The river is noted for its fly fishing and great swimming holes. The railway viaduct out there is the southern hemispheres single largest concrete pour, and is quite a sight. Farm tours are available upon request.
A guided evening trip to the glow worm trail in one of the bush reserves is highly recommended. There are 2 QE2 bush reserves on the farm. Guests are invited to put their names to young Pohutukawa trees planted along the farm track.
The extensive and safe Mahanga beach is adjacent and there is access below The Quarters to the coast where one may fish, dive, and jump off the ledges. Seals live here in winter.

The views are absolutely spectacular. The Farm is an adventure to explore. The remoteness is delightful and you really feel like you are getting away from it all. There is lots to explore all up the East Cape. The wifi was super fast and a surprise to have. The cottage was very clean, simple, comfortable and every room has the spectacular views, even the toilet! We will definitely refer and would love to come back sometime.
Unique and idilique, phenomenal sunsets, captivating moon over the water, truely a breath taking locale, we were even treated to a lightening storm in the very early hours over the peninsula - magestic indeed.
