Why us?

We offer a relaxing quiet retreat from the world that will leave you rested and at peace, to enable you a positive return to your regular existence. Although we are about "Getting away from it all", the property does have good WiFi coverage, just in case you need it.

What we have:
We have four separate spaces to stay in. Three are individual units that we call Whare, this is Maori for House. They are all simple and private. The other space is a room in the main house. 

We consider ourselves "Green" and therefore foster these practices. Solar power and gas are our main sources of energy. We also have a composting toilet in the Wharepaku(Bathroom) which is near the outside Whare for guests to use. Each Whare has solar lighting, but otherwise they are totally unplugged from the network.

Meals: A complimentary Breakfast is included in your stay and will be served in the main house dining room in the morning. We are very flexible with the timing of this. If you would like to have an evening meal this can be arranged too, as long as we have prior knowledge, so Matthew can put on his chefs hat! We charge $30 per person for any cooked meal.
