Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)
Every day we wake to a melodious dawn chorus of bellbirds and Tui's singing outside our bedroom window. We have the amazing top of the South Island as our playground. I often wonder why we would want to go anywhere else?… But of course there is so much beauty and wonder yet to be seen! Our current motto is "don't leave home till you've seen the country" and with our mountain-bikes, off road motorbikes and adventure motorbikes, we want to explore every corner of our beautiful country and meet great people. We live on a sublime hillside within a peaceful valley and offer separate retreat type accommodation in the form of a delightful and spacious three bedroom cottage. We enjoy meeting people that want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of their normal lives. Another motto we live by is to leave things better than we found it, and that includes our own land and environment and anywhere we happen to stay. There are other applications to that motto as well -family, relationships etc. I love and live holistic health and balance and have worked in nursing education mostly. Sams'engineering and my nursing backgrounds have proven to be a great combination, a marriage of ideas and doing, social and practical, emotional and logical.
Why LeesaB97 chose Wai-iti
"Unplug, slow down, get close to nature....Make space for adventure and exploring" This is what Sam and I believe in and live. Our aim is to share our way of living through sharing the delightful cottage on our property.

Home away from home in the farm
The best bach experience we have ever had. Thank you so much Lessa and Sam. It is cosy, warm, tidy, clean.. and the list goes on. It had everything we could imagine, so very thoughtful and considerate. And lovely to meet the check out manager Joey. We are definitely coming back!
Cosy and warm with a beautiful view
The cottage is only a few minutes drive from Wakefield town centre, sparkling clean and spacious, more than enough for our family of 6. The house has sunshine all day so inside is amazingly warm. The beds and duvets are really comfortable, too.
Cellphone reception is good at the front porch. A high shelf full of books/Dvds as well as toys and board games available for all ages. My husband happened to have a vga cable in his laptop bag, so we were able to connect our own laptop to the projector.
We arrived in the evening and got to meet Leesa the next morning and she made sure we had everything needed and kindly offered my kids a chance to feed her chickens and they loved it!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would definitely go back if we were in the area again. Highly recommend!
Gorgeous cottage within peaceful surroundings
We loved our stay here. The cottage was gorgeous and spacious. You can tell a lot of thought and love has been put into this place. A big thank you for the chocolate and milk left in the fridge for us. Only a 30min drive to Nelson. A great place to base oneself while exploring the area.
Wonderful property, location, and hosts! Wish we could have stayed longer.
No wifi, but we could get weak cell service from Spark and Vodafone.
If its peace and quiet you are after this property ticks all...
If its peace and quiet you are after this property ticks all the boxes, we loved having no cell reception or wifi, there was no choice to do anything other than relax.
WIth 3 kids we found it the perfect size, big enough that we weren't falling over each other but small enough to have that lovely bach feel.
Location was great as only a short drive from many many wonderful things to do in the Nelson region.
Delightfull pasture setting, tasteful appointed idealic cottage
This is the curriest cottage. Every detail for a perfect stay has been attended too. Lessa and Sam have created the warmest of warm settings that match their generous hospitality. Peaceful, quiet tranquil, the perfect place to unwind, enjoy a book and leave the digital world behind and discover good conversation, over a glass of wine. Love this place!
