Guests Comments ...

Following are comments from some of our guests after their stay:

Farmstay and cottage exceeded our expectations. Convenient location to Hobbits and glow worms. Fun times milking cows, riding the farm bike, and catching (and releasing) beautiful trout in your rivers. Peter was most helpful - thanks.

Deciding to travel to Auckland from Wellington after a conference was one of the wisest decisions we have made in business as we are going from this particular juncture totally invigorated, motivated and inspired, mainly due to the time spent here. We caught no fish! Who cares - this cottage has been put together with such care and devotion to service and hospitality that all who stay here will leave with a different outlook on life. Thank you Peter & Pauline.

B & T, Western Australia

Our stay here will always be imprinted in our memories. It was everything we were anticipating and more. Apart from the wonderful welcome and hospitality we will never forget the 4 WD over and down this fabulous property you have. Thank you Pauline!

G & D, Australia.

We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely cottage. Everything was perfect, especially the river and the beautiful farm. Thanks for the use of the quad. We enjoyed that very much. See you again soon.

Don't change anything. It's perfect. Very obliging trout. Lost count of the fish landed and all but one are still here. Thanks for the use of the 4 wheeler. We'll be back.

We have traveled New Zealand 20 days (mostly the South Island) so far, and have 12 more days. This stay has to be the highlight of our trip so far. The accommodations are first rate and the beauty of the farm made our attempts at fishing most enjoyable.

Thank you for a most enjoyable "farm" experience, a privilege to be your first guests. We will be back, although the trout are probably still safe! H & C have loved feeding the calves and especially squirting out the milking shed.

G, K, H & C from New Zealand

We love this cottage! Great thrill to catch some trout!! Loved the calves - so cute. Excellent stay. Thank you. We'll be back again.

The cottage is so cosy - we felt right at home! The boys loved mucking up to the barn and watching Peter milk, fishing for trout in your beautiful river and riding on the 2 and 4 wheel bikes. We enjoyed Tirau and Cambridge and the proximity to Rotorua, Taupo, Waitomo etc. is perfect. Thank you so much.

H, S, J-H & R from Florida, USA

L, K, M & S from Singapore
