    We loved the rural setting of the property and being surrounded by panoramic views of the beautiful taranaki landscape. As promised the bach was very private which was very relaxing. The kids loved the experience of interacting with the chickens - feeding them and collecting eggs. We loved the eco principles of the property and the open and spacious layout of the house.
