Continental breakfast is included in the Suite rate, with a cooked farmhouse breakfast available at an extra charge. Tea and coffee facilities are in the Tui and Kingfisher Suites and available in the Conservatory.

A formal lounge and conservatory is available for relaxing as well as a choice of outdoor decks in the bush for that perfect cup of tea, or evening glass of wine.

The property is run using organic and sustainable principles with permaculture vege gardens and paddocks for a rare breed of Arapawa black sheep. Spacious guest suites, tranquility and lovely views, make this a comfortable and restful place for guests to stay combining coastal paradise with a small farm.

The historic Scottish town of Waipu is a 10 minute drive. Nearby there are beautiful beaches for swimming and surfing. 2 golf courses, Waipu underground caves, and wonderful coastal walks are all close. The stunning Cove coastal walk is within minutes of the Homestead. And the famous Waipu Pizza Barn is a must for dinner.

  • What a wonderful place to stay

    What a wonderful place to stay. Lisa and Anthony (and their two lovely daughters) were incredibly accommodating and thoughtful during our visit, suggesting walks, restaurants and even babysitting for us one night! The food they serve is incredibly tasty and pretty much all of it is homegrown, including the butter. A real home from home, and the accommodation immaculate. Langs and Waipu beaches are only 15 mins walk away - I would encourage anyone visiting this area to stay here. It's a gem.
