PLEASE DON'T TRY TO BOOK IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION OF OUR PROPERTY. LOCATION The house sits on top of a ridge overlooking native bush and farmland with views of the Tasman Sea in the distance. The property is a 75 acre farm with sheep, cattle, pigs, goats and birds. You will need a car to make the most of our place. The property is 2mins from the Arahura River - an important source of pounamu (jade) on the West Coast. We are only a 5min drive to the beach which is a beautifully wild place filled with amazing driftwood and pebbles - a great place for a bonfire. We have two small dogs on the property. IMPORTANT - WE ARE AN ECO-FRIENDLY HOME ** Our house is completely off-grid. All our power comes from a solar panel array. All our water is rainwater collected from the roof. Many of the features in the house are from building recyclers. If you need microwaves, hairdryers and A/C etc, we are not the place for you. HOUSE RULES ***Please provide the names of ALL guests staying when you book. No other guests will be permitted*** Please message us your arrival time as soon as you can. Don't wait till later in the day of arrival and try and get cellphone coverage. Most of the West Coast has little or NO coverage so... you won't be able to contact us and we won't know when you are arriving. That gives us a both a big problem, especially if we have plans and are not here because we don't know when you are arriving. If there is anything that you are not happy about, please let us know straight away so we can make your stay better. Smoking is permitted outside only. No Shoes inside. Please be careful with power and water usage. Keep showers brief & no showers after 10pm. Quiet time from 10pm - 7am please. You must close all gates you go through when visiting the animals.

This special property offers a chance for a genuine NZ experience often not accessible to most travellers. We will highly recommend this special property and its committed owners. Enjoy! "
