Lovely farm with lovely hosts and fun animals. Would stay here again.
Stunning location, welcoming hosts. Highly recommended.
Restful and clam
Really enjoyed our stay in the bunkhouse and meeting the well-cared for animals. Everything we needed on our cycle tour, even the offer of a shuttle to town when one e bike refused to start. All well, we completed the trip to Days Bay around the splendid coastline.
Very pleased to hear all went well on your trip around the coast and the bike played ball!
Where do I begin?
This is a special place. It is a slice of paradise and I can't thank Dougal and Denise enough for sharing this with the world.
We had an incredible time relaxing here. The accommodation itself is just so right. The train carriage is comfortable and clean as well as being friggin awesome! The farm animals are hilarious and really suit their names (like the chooks "Thelma and Louise") but one highlight that stands out for us is Dougal himself. What a top bloke! Hard working, honest and creative, everything at Te Rakau has a story attached and it is these stories that make it that bit more special. Tom the little terrier is a charming and full of life little dude!!!
The walks, the pond and the outdoor bathtub are standouts as far as relaxing in such a wonderful environment.
I even got to park my Harley under the shelter overnight!!!
Thank you so much Dougal and Denise. We are already planning our next stay there.
Dan and Tina
Wow what a review! Thank you so much.
It's so rewarding to get this kind of feedback from people who really appreciate what we have created.
We look forward to your next visit.
This was a great experience. Denise and Dougal and Tom (the dog) are lovely, when we arrived we helped them out herding up some errant sheep! The accommodation is perfect for a biking tour or a budget adventure getaway. The facilities are pretty basic but it adds to the experience and we found we had everything we needed. Would reccommend if something a little different is your thing and you dont care about needing all the luxuries
