The Homestead is the original farm homestead and has wonderful character and home comforts, two living rooms and two bathrooms for your convenience, a downstairs rumpus/bunkroom with an air hockey table for family fun. Lots of room indoors and out. Movies, books and playstation to entertain you on wet days plus there are two heatpumps and a cosy log fire for those cooler days.

The Homestead is in the prime location of Okere Falls - only two minutes from the Kaituna river and Okere store/restaurant and bar a popular holiday gathering place.

  • The Homestead is in a fabulous location for hikes along the river...

    The Homestead is in a fabulous location for hikes along the river and popping into the Okere Falls Store - amazing food and great supplies. Our family loved our stay, the fire and heat pump warm for winter. Only wished it was warmer to kayak on the lake! Thank you.

  • Fantastic location, it was spacious and clean

    Fantastic location, it was spacious and clean. We wanted for nothing ... and a box of After Dinner mints there on our arrival was much appreciated by the boys. The house was everything we wanted ... pity the fishing wasn't. But that's not the Homesteads fault! Thanks for a great time Vicki.

  • The property was great, very clean and had everything we needed

    The property was great, very clean and had everything we needed. The location was perfect, within walking distance of the Okere Falls Store which we loved. Had a great time with the kayaks and boat and the walks around that area were beautiful.
