Thanks for the lovely comments - glad the team enjoyed their stay ! We do actually have WIFI available in both houses (both Barn & Cottage) but modem is in the Barn so service not always 100% for the Cottage but I'm having a technician check everything as it seems to be all good from my end ! But good to be made aware of - thankyou. Look forward to having you stay again sometime. Warm Regards, Vicki.

We stayed in the barn In June 2015. We had stayed here before so we knew what to expect. Spotlessly clean etc. Our group was us (retired couple plus dog) and 5 other adults - plenty of room bed-wise, big dining table, plenty of room for relaxing outside too. Just a few minutes drive fron Cambride through scenic countryside, only a couple of km from the lake. We would thoroghly recommend as a base for family events (we were part of a wide family gathering for a funeral, and people staying at motels etc in town were able to come out and relax with us in between times), or other group. The owners are nearby if any problems arise (we had no problems in our two stays). (We have also stayed in their house at Pukehina Beach, and will be returning there too!

We stayed in the Barn for the second week of the winter school holidays and we enjoyed every minute of the country atmosphere. I've got two young boys and we didn't feel the need to go far at all from the Barn, we had all the comforts of home but immensely enjoyed exploring the area. We even extended our stay as the kids were having so much fun. I will definitely be staying again!

Welcome you back again sometime - we are always adding things & working on things to improve - my next project is to revamp the outdoor area infront of the kitchen at the Barn so you can sit up close & personal with the cows (or not) !!

Vicki was very helpful with preparing the stay for us, with payment and arrangements for extra bed, arrival, etc.

The barn was very good for our stay as it allowed the children to run around freely without worrying about breaking anything. There was just the one shower and toilet (and bath) for the 12 of us but that did not cause any problems for us at all, even in prep for attending a wedding.

Overall a good stay in an open environment.

Thanks to Vicki for her assistance as well.

Beyond my expectations! We rented this property for 2 families and 2 additional adults for a week. Because one of the families had small children we decided to add the cottage too (Very glad we did to have entire compound). Overall, we had a wonderful experience at the barn and cottage. The gardens and open architecture at the barn and cottage are gorgeous. The sunrise over the hills were beautiful and the sunsets were even more picturesque. Additional benefit was the proximity of amenities (lake, grocery, Cambidge, horsebackriding…) Overall wonderful property for large or small groups!!!
