  • Awesome place, warm, modern and brilliant layout

    Awesome place, warm, modern and brilliant layout. Private and secluded but only a few minutes drive from the city or Mt Taranaki. The Alpacas were friendly too. Would definitely be planning a return.

    We have had two visits to this beautiful location and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet and relaxing time away with all the comforts, and more, of home. We love this place, and the alpacas are amazing!

    Very well appointed house and we appreciated all the added extras and luxuries. The rural setting on an alpaca farm adds to the relaxing experience.
