About the property

Farmstay, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

This charming semi detached farmhouse with European flair, is located in a peaceful, quiet, rural setting with mature gardens + plenty of lawn space for games like Pole Tennis, Petanque and Frisbee, just to name a few. A swinging tyre from a tree will entertain the kids for hours.

There are alpaca, goats, doves, aviary birds, geese, chooks and Honey, the horse to enjoy as well as our friendly dog Ben who loves lots of attention.

The open plan living area opens up to a private verandah with comfortable outdoor furniture to enjoy a BBQ.

The place is self contained with a fully equipped kitchen + dining area and an exquisite lounge with Rimu floors and handmade rugs.

It truly is a home away from home, just walk in and relax.

We have a big selection of books, puzzles, DVD's and CD's for those rainy days.

The property is beautiful, accommodation is amazing, comfortable, clean and very restful. A wee way out of town, but not a problem. Close to the hot pools. Takeaways just down the road. A must stay.

This was home for us for 3 nights for me, my wife and our 3 boys (7, 5 and 2 years old). The boys loved all the animals: dog, the chickens, the goats, the alpacas and the horse. The home was wonderful with everything we needed. An absolutely fantastic experience

Plenty of room for our family of four, clean and comfy with everything you could need. Lovely peaceful spot, the garden is amazing and the children loved the animals (especially Ben the dog!). Close to Whakatane and surrounds. Would stay again.

This property is amazing, even better than we expected.

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing, even better than we expected. Fantastic country experience in a cottage with so much character. A huge lawn to play cricket with the kids, animals to feed, incredible gardens, etc. We enjoyed staying out of town but being so accessible to everything the area has to offer. Easily the best holiday house we've stayed. Noticed it's won awards too - no wonder!
