Description

  • Peaceful and private Bach surrounded by bush views. Bush walk up to panoramic valley views.
  • Enjoy the nature and country surrounds, organic/eco/permaculture farmlet, sit round fire, stargaze.
  • Close to river bike trails, river swimming, close drive to famous Rimutaka Rail Trail.

Our place will suit those who are looking for a retreat, a wild place, a rustic, natural environment. Total privacy if you'd like it, or we are close by as your hosts, and you can feel welcome to share more of our country lifestyle.

Feel like you are in the wilderness, yet only a few minutes drive to the motorway connecting you with Wellington city in one direction, or the Rimutaka's and Wairarapa region in the other direction. Upper Hutt and Silverstream are close service centres.



In the summertime, The famous Rimutaka Rail Trail is a short drive away. Also river bike trails, and a local swimming hole. Upper Hutt is also fast becoming the home to some of the best craft beer breweries in the region. Enjoy bushwalks and lazy summer nights under the stars. In the winter, gaze into the open fire, relax, read, play games. Wrap up in a blanket outside around the brazier, or enjoy a winter hot soak under the stars in your private outside bath or enjoy access to the (shared) spa pool.

Special conditions: Smoking outside only. No pets sorry. Outside covered bathroom. Outside BBQ cooking and cleaning station, under covered verandah. Spacious parking space outside front gate. All gates need to be respectfully kept closed. Guests need to be dog friendly.

  • Cute little shack

    Cute little shack......... nice and quiet...... Not so good in the rain as the kitchen is outside.

  • Fantastic stay and beautiful location

    Fantastic stay and beautiful location. So close to civilization and yet you feel like you're in a hut a long way from anywhere. Facilities great - loved the fire - will definitely be back!

  • Beautiful spot

    Beautiful spot. It feels secluded and special even though it's so close to upper Hutt centre. Especially loved the spa in the rain and toasting fresh eggs over the fire place. A perfect spot for a winter get away.

  • An amazing place to stay

    An amazing place to stay. The bach has everything you need and is toasty warm in winter. The outside toilet and shower are great and the bath fantastic. A really relaxing bach and we're looking forward to staying again.

  • We absolutely loved staying at Moonshine Valley

    We absolutely loved staying at Moonshine Valley. Beautiful little cottage and the surrounding bush is so idyllic. The outdoor bath was incredible, especially enjoying it on a full moon evening! Will definitely come and stay again, hopefully for longer next time.
