Description

This is a gorgeous timber Riverside Retreat, simply Known as "The Shack".

It's off the grid and fully self contained with most of the comforts of home.

*Solar powered lights at the flick of a switch

*Coal range which heats your water

*Chrystal clear running water for drinking and showering and yes we do have flush loo's

The setting is Private, Peaceful and Relaxing.

The Shack is rustic and cosy.

This is as close as you will get to the 'outback' but only minutes away from the city.

Two rivers to enjoy! Both the Ashley and the Okuku for walking, swimming and fishing plus heaps of fun to be had for those with their own mountain bikes,motorbikes or horses (BYO only).

Horse paddocks available @$15per horse pn

Just 10 mins to Rangiora Township for plenty of Cafes and Restaurants or head 20 mins north for a great selection of wineries.

    This is the real-deal "getaway from it all" place, rustic and toasty warm with the coal range heating the place. As quiet, and peaceful as you could want. Walked our dog through the riverside bush to the river at least twice each - a nice country spot. Well done.

  • Awesome accommodation on a farm

    Awesome accommodation on a farm. A fabulous experience for the kids to be in the country and live simply. The shack had everything we needed and was very cosy and warm and the beds very comfy. Totally enjoyed our night there. Thank you !:)

    Great if you're looking for a rustic, off-the-grid get-away place. Loved the quiet setting in the corner of a paddock, next to bush.
