Great spot, nice and quiet, with a amazing birdsong to wake up to, would be good for larger groups or just small ones like ours, plenty to see and do, would recommend getting in touch with farm owners before you go regarding on farm activities but heaps in the local area as well. just wish we could of stayed longer, so definitely be going back! thanks guys for the awesome weekend.

This place is awesome. Private, quiet, tranquil, plenty of space. Lots to do and explore. Only shame was that we were working during our stay.
What a fantastic holiday home. Loved the flock of Tui, darting and squabbling in the Banksia trees. We had a wonderfully peaceful week, even though the weather was not the greatest. Wonderful hosts.
