Just off S H 1 between Otaki and Levin, at 107 South Manakau Road. Do NOT follow Google Maps. Go along South Manakau Road to the first corner (1 km).

A farm building converted over 4 years with love and friendship into a warm and comfortable self-contained Eco-Cabin for your enjoyment. It has 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and indoor and outdoor living spaces, next to a bio-filtered swimming pool and food forests. You will be on a 50 hectare organic farm with hills of native forests (QE II covenant) and plantations. You can wander along tracks and bush walks with wide views from Mount Ruapehu and Taranaki to Kapiti and the South Island. Also close to beaches and Tararua Range entries.

We have a small working farm, to provide healthy food and water from a healthy and diverse environment. There are free ranging pigs, hens and ducks, extensive grazing of sheep and cattle, orchard trees, vegetable gardens and grain crops. There are lots of trees, for shelter and habitat, and sustainably coppiced woodlots for firewood, timber plantations and forest wilderness.

The cabin is part of a farm building, made of local natural materials, including timber, earth and stone, with earth floor and earth plaster wall finishing. On-site services of spring water, ‘waste’ re-use, compost and flush toilets, wood range, wind and solar power. All cotton sheets and towels, wool rugs, etc.

Come and relax in an abundant and healthy environment, and enjoy the fruits of the land at our place. We will provide you with a breakfast basket of our own organic or local produce.

  • Great farmstay

    Great farmstay. Lovely owners. An amazing experience and we all loved the pigs. The house warmed up well with the fantastic fire on the coldest of days.
