  • A lovely home, beautifully restored and in a peaceful location

    A lovely home, beautifully restored and in a peaceful location. The kitchen is very well equipped and the shower and bath are excellent. Lovely views from the main living room. A great place to recover from jet lag or travel weariness.

    We had a wonderful stay at Nga Pari, it was very peaceful and relaxing, and the owners have thought of everything and more to make a stay here very comfortable. Thanks very much Kerry and Joan for sharing this wonderful home with us and for being such thoughtful hosts.

  • If you like the idea of curling up to an open fire...

    If you like the idea of curling up to an open fire with a good book ( a good selection on hand), then this is the place for you. Fantastic starlit nights. A rural property just 12 km out fro Rangiora. We were welcomed with blueberry muffins and Kerry and Joan had kindly put the heat pumps on every day for us at 4 pm. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break.
