Very relaxing farmhouse with resident ducks, chickens & a rabbit 'Boots'. Set 20mins from Porongohau Beach, it's halfway between the town of Waipukarau & gorgeous Porongohau Beach. The house is clean, neat & tidy, no internet, but board games supplied. Nice to connect with family with no mobile phones & internet! Would definitely stay again & now my daughter wants pet ducks!
Remember that Long Island is a country cottage, and the lack of TV, Mobile reception are well advertise before you book. A great place for a relaxing holiday. It is about 15 minutes from the beach and there are a few things to look at around and about if you get cabin fever. Lots of farm animals around and a yard that is well fenced for your dog. We enjoyed our stay and will return at some time.
We were a group of city dwelling workers looking for an escape and had a fabulous long weekend here, we could all have happily stayed another week. The house has everything you could need (including board games, we had brought our own just in case) and the wild yet wonderful Porangahau beach is just down the road. Next opportunity, we will be back!
Beautiful location and is well worth the drive. Jess and her husband live not far up the road and are so welcoming that you don't feel like a guest. Spacious three bedroom home and huge bathroom for all the family. Nice quiet location in the open surrounded by beautiful nature and fresh air.
