Situated in a quiet paradise on the edge of Waihi bush looking straight out to Waihi peak and built within a stroll to the Waihi river, the barn is a true escape from city life, less than 2 easy hours drive from Christchurch and 10 minutes drive to Geraldine.

Purpose built for accommodation, the barn is very spacious with a high vaulted ceiling. It comprises an open plan living/kitchen and numerous options for open plan sleeping (6+ and well suited for a couple/ family or group.

Take a holiday from your cell phone and screens - we are proudly back to basics (no internet or cellphone but does have TV and a landline available for emergencies!).

You may choose to just enjoy the tranquility of the ponies and other farm animals and we have a well loved country garden. We enjoy carriage driving; our ponies are driven most days during summer. Chickens and sheep provide a full "farm stay" experience but with the privacy of some distance between the barn and main house.

The barn is just a short drive from Geraldine, where we enjoy all the facilities of NZ's favorite small town. Great coffee and cuisine and the opportunity to sample a unique movie theatre, bush walks, locally produced gourmet cheese, chocolate and fruit products await.

Cleaning will be provided for $50 per stay. Linen hire for $5.00 per person.

    Location is ideal for peace and quiet. You get the luxury or NO noise! NO traffic! NO other distractions, and NO cell service, which is brilliant!!! So no-one can annoy you! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • Very peaceful

    Very peaceful. No privacy though for people if you wanted somewhere to be on your own (we had a lot of rain while we stayed and so were stuck in the same room)

    The barn is very spacious, clean and has all the facilities me and my family could ever have needed. The country setting is beautiful and peaceful. A fantastic place to get away from it all and relax.
