  • Away from it all yet less than half an hours easy country drive to Tauranga and Mt Maunganui.
  • Expansive views of Tauranga and Kaimai ranges. Stunning sunsets.
  • Solar powered in luxury! We're an off the grid country stay and we farm organically.

A wonderfully peaceful haven for a couple or single. Get back in touch with nature in your own private sanctuary. An ideal haven for city slickers and perfect for a writer, songwriter or anyone looking to escape from town - yet close enough to Tauranga, Mt Maunganui or Rotorua allowing you to explore the wondrous Bay of Plenty. This upstairs self contained studio apartment with kitchen equipped with hot plate, electric frypan and mini oven, utensils, cutlery and crockery. A sense of spaciousness with cathedral ceiling, chic furnishings, private verandah with stunning vistas over the farm, native bush and expansive country and sea views will tantalise your senses. Enjoy evening BBQ's (supplied) and watch the sun set behind the Kaimai ranges. Feed the kunekune pig and get up close to the Boer goats and Beef cattle on this organic farm. Our 10KW solar power system, comprising of 45 solar panels, allows us to be completely off grid. The owners also live on the 50 acre property and their lovely home nearby has a solar heated swimming pool available on hot summer days. Rotorua is an hours drive away which makes for a perfect day trip.

Special conditions: Smoking outside only please. Best suited to a couple. Minimum stay 2 nights.

  • Location was amazing - well worth the 10-15min drive out of Tauranga

    Location was amazing - well worth the 10-15min drive out of Tauranga. Facilities were excellent, clean, tidy and homely. For us it was perfect as we were not looking to make multiple trips into town so being that little bit out of town was no issue. The view from the barn was epic - even with the fog and rain (we seemed to pick the only weekend which it rained in this part of the country). We had some of our own food which we were able to prep in the well stocked kitchenette.
