Our 2 bedroom house with 2 adjoining rooms, has equal amounts of character and comfort! Perfect for friends, family and club get-togethers (4 other houses available for accommo too)..The house is cool in summer but cosy warm in winter especially with the woodstove cranked up ! (The 2nd bathroom is outside and joined onto the back of the house - 10?m away)

There's no deck but the BBQ tables on the lawn outside are perfect for supping on a wine or two and star-gazing at night (no light pollution here!!) Or during the day, look at those amazing views of cattle grazing on the paddocks with the backdrop of the mountains.

In the creek 150m away, the hot days can be spent paddling in the shallows, building dams and spying fishlife. Further upstream, swimmers can jump off the bank and swim in the 3m deep hole. More swimming can be done at the waterfalls too - 3 of them - lovely native bush to go through.

Tramping choices on the farm range from 1 to 6 hours - through bush, grassland and up into the mountains for amazing views of the Pacific Ocean and Hauraki Gulf. (Detour to an old goldmine for closeups of glow worms too)

Horsetrekking is fun - all abilities can be catered for and all ages from 4 years old - walk, trot or canter along the grassy flats, through creeks and paddocks of sheep and cattle then up into the foothills for the views on the way home - beach rides too.

Lots of Off-farm activities too

    Great stay, farm house was very clean and well equipped, Excellent set up for a family group. A great place for a relaxing weekend away from the city, but still with plenty of outdoor options. Beautiful part of New Zealand.

  • Palm Tree Home is great, fully fenced section, very clean and tidy

    Palm Tree Home is great, fully fenced section, very clean and tidy. Being on a farm was excellent, lots of farm animals and you can go any where. The other families staying there where friendly. I will be booking another holiday there.

    We had an amazing holiday in one of the best locations in NZ. The bach is clean and tidy and has got everything one needs to relax. Great to be able to take our dog along as well. We will be back!

  • Enjoyed our stay

    Enjoyed our stay. House is comfortable and super clean. Kids loved being able to roam the paddocks, streams and waterfalls and spent hours jumping off the bridge!!! House is well fenced- a self closing gate would be a great addition as I was a little nervous that it would be accidentally left open and the daft dog would end up on the road. There isn't much traffic but it's 100kmph. Thanks and Happy New Year
