As we are off-grid, we must be careful with our power. We do not have a microwave, dishwasher, dryer or air conditioning. Cellphone coverage is patchy.

  • Really lovely house, lots of cool quirky things to look at

    Really lovely house, lots of cool quirky things to look at. The bathroom has a lovely claw-foot bath! The bedroom is huge, easily big enough for all 4 of us. Really interesting ornaments and souvenirs, all set out on upcycled shelves, eclectic mix of furniture and vintage bits and pieces. Super-comfortable beds, toys and books for the kids, homemade muesli and yoghurt from the farm. fresh fruit and Havana coffee all in the room! Perfect distance from Hokitika.. easy drive to town for dinner.

  • Awesome place

    Awesome place. A farm 10 mins out of town, HUGE bedroom and really comfortable bed. I liked how 'green' the property was - careful with water and electricity. Highlights were homemade yoghurt for breakfast and the farm tour in the morning - gorgeous piglets!

    Very quiet and restful. its a beautiful old house with lots of character and a really comfortable feeling. We had a great time wandering around the yard and checking out the animals, especially the wee piggies!
