Description

  • Sunny warm fully furnished self contained fenced cottage
  • 2 minutes drive to the beautiful Hangaroa river and Doneraille park
  • Working 614 hectare sheep and beef hill farm.

Mahaanui cottage farmstay is a private, stand alone cottage located in the beautiful Tiniroto area half way between Gisborne and Wairoa on the inland road. [aprox 50 minutes driving either way].

Wake up to native birds singing, tranquil picturesque views and sun streaming into the cottage. If you are interested in a restful few days or a more active farm experience with your friends/family then this is the right place.

The cottage is comfortable, has everything you need for an enjoyable stay and can accommodate two families easily for a relaxing country break.

Farm tours are available. Bring your mountain bike or horse to explore the farm or your own motorbikes by arrangement. You are welcome to go walking over the farmland and fish some special spots in the nearby river. There are two marked walking trails that leave from the cottage. One out to the back boundary and one with private access to the Hangaroa river. Swim, kayak or picnic at nearby scenic Doneraille park or visit the Awapiko waterfall further up Ruakaka road.

Hackfalls aboretum, Rere rockslide and the well known Ruakituri valley with its excellent trout fishing are easy drives. Mahia and lake Waikaremoana are about 1.5 hours drive away.

The kitchen is well equipped and has basic cooking provisions such as flour, sugar, tea, coffee, spices, oil but you will have to bring all your other food provisions with you as the nearest shop is about a 50 minute drive away. Meals can be provided with some notice for additional cost and a cleaners service is also available should you not want to clean the cottage on your departure.

  • Beautiful farm stay at a remote location

    Beautiful farm stay at a remote location. We came in spring so we were lucky to see the cherry blossoms at the backyard, the spring lambs and the cute piglets. Simon is very kind to take us for a farm tour. The house is spacious, cozy and beautiful, a nice rural retreat indeed. We played family board games by the fire at rainy night, and put on gumboots to walk around the farm. We also drove around and explored the area. What a wonderful place!

    fantastic location,very private,loads of good firewood and we could take our dog.stunning walk to the back of the farm.a slight criticism would be the lack of good hot water pressure after a very cold day.otherwise a great place to stay.

  • Wonderful farm stay

    Wonderful farm stay....the cottage is perfect in every way. Perfect location to get a feel of living on a sheep/cattle ranch and/or a perfect place if you want to just get away and relax.
