Guestbook comments from the owner
Over the past five years I have enjoyed the people and surroundings of the wonderful healing environment at Waiaka Homestead. I have stayed there personally many a time. I have attended many community events and gatherings, and it is amazing how Waiaka is able to support all of these varied uses so beautifully. It flows from the aina and the place itself. But even more, it flows from the hearts and hands of Barrie and Johanna; two beautiful people, under their attentive care and stewardship.
