This has been our family home for many years which our grandchildren now enjoy with us during their visits.

It always seemed such a shame that we haven't been able to share this with all of the visitors to Rotorua where we have lived, worked and made many wonderful memories over the years!

Now we can!

We honestly believe this small and cosy self contained space would be best suited to quiet and respectful couples, travelling companions and small families looking for an alternative accommodation option in a farm like setting.

Infants and small children under 5 years of age are very welcome, older children please enquire.

Portacot and high chair is available at no additional charge and provided on request.

A full sized kitchen, stove and microwave oven offer loads of options for self catering.

There are plenty of crockery and cutlery, serving ware and appliances available including a coffee machine for that all important first brew on the farm cup of the day.

A breakfast hamper is provided to get your stay underway at a farm life pace.

The shower is hand held optional with a heated towel rail, basin and toilet all self contained.

Everything is provided for your comfort and enjoyment, it's your holiday after all!

Wifi included no data limits and cell phone coverage for all networks.

There are a large numbers of brochures and maps for you to enjoy during your stay and to help with making plans of what to see and do in fantastic Rotorua.

As we are a working sheep and beef lifestyle farm we have the usual farm noises and barking dogs which can have their moments at times when working or excited.

We have done all we can to make sure you will have all the privacy in the world during your stay here.

Special conditions: The dogs are very friendly and more of a family member than just pets. You are very welcome to use the driveway space and the front garden but please don't come through into the back garden where the dogs live and our family visiting us use from time to time. You are very welcome to walk around the farm, please close the gates - farm rules apply, if the gate is closed please close it again to keep the animals safe.

  • Beautiful place to stay

    Beautiful place to stay. Our trip was peaceful and relaxing with stunning views of Lake Rotorua. Derek and Jenny ensured we had everything we needed and much more. Our daughter enjoyed playing with Missy and seeing the horses. I hope we will be back again soon :-)
