Sunny 70's three bedroom house, with separate bath, shower, and toilet rooms. We've had fun with a top to toe, inside and outside refurbishment. The kitchen is well equipped, the furnishings are eclectic, and the beds and bedding comfy. There are lots of books, DVD, Freeview TV, a kid cave for small kids and big kids, and even a stereo that plays vinyls!!

A sumptuous breakfast basket is provided and we can do antipasto platters, BBQ packs, and picnic baskets for you too. Complementary marshmallows for toasting on the outdoor fire.

The house is sunny and warm with two fireplaces, electric heating in the bedrooms and electric blankets.

The outdoor areas are large, with sunny patios, sprawling lawns, country views, barbeque and outdoor fire. Great spaces for children and dogs, all securely fenced for safety.

Several wedding and function centres are nearby and we'll even pick you up afterwards. We live five minutes away.

    We stayed at Homegrown House for just one night while attending a wedding in Otaki, but would love to come back and stay for a weekend getaway! Sue and Bill really have their guests in mind with every little detail in this house - and are so welcoming. We all appreciated the breakfast basket left out for us (with a bottle of bubbly to celebrate Valentines Day)!

  • Really loved our stay at Homegrown House

    Really loved our stay at Homegrown House. The property was delightful and crammed full of creative features that were an inspiration to relax! Only thing was, our stay was only night, and it was raining so we didn't get to venture outside which looked gorgeous too! The children loved the rumpus room, very well kitted out with everything cool! And we especially loved explaining the beautiful record player to the children and having a dance ;)
