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.

  • We had a wonderful stay

    We had a wonderful stay. The beds were super comfy and the facilities were perfect for our family with two young children. We loved exploring the food forest and taking walks on the property. The basket of lovely organic breakfast treats was a nice touch. We will definitely be back.

    We had an absolutely lovely weekend here, no one more so than my 5 year old daughter who really didn’t want to leave! Comfy beds, cosy house, beautiful welcome basket with coffee, milk, butter, delicious muesli, preserves, jam and honey and home made bread... so lovely to feel away from the busy life of the city and enjoy the company of some cute pigs and the very friendly Zsa Zsa the dog. We have already talked about coming back, cannot wait! Thank you

    So I came here with my girlfrends ( all in our 20s) and we loved it.Location great- secluded but not far from otaki/manakau (10 mins). Beautiful farm land that we had a walk around. Literally pigs just walking around everywhere. The home itself was my idea of perfection- so original and unique, lots of little nooks and crannies that gave it character. It has everything you need and is quaint but also still trendy with its great little finishing touches and comfy beds.If you love nature come here

  • Lovely place to feel miles from anywhere and just relax

    Lovely place to feel miles from anywhere and just relax. Friendly hosts and animals and a cosy wood burner all add to a peaceful stay.

    Lovely farm setting with some awesome animals for the kids to get up close up and personal with. Lovely cosy whare, clean and well looked after. A real eco house.
