Awesome little batches more like a tree house style nice and cozy, if you love nature this is the spot! Dog, Sheep and fresh milk from the cows you will love the stay here. Just 2 hours drive to Cape Reinga from here so easy. Hosts are so lovely and they love talking about local activities. Take your power banks with you as the rooms are eco-friendly with only solar lights. We are going to stay there again this summer <3 Cheers to Matt and Sue :D

The Center of the Umaverse is an incredible location. You will be surrounded by pretty rolling hills, happy livestock and lush farmland. Your hosts are very friendly and hospitable.

This was our first airbnb experience and we could not have had any better host then Sue, Matt & Hope. First you get greeted with a happy Hope (the herd dog) running around and so joyful. Then you meet Sue & Matt, two beautiful human beings hidden in the middle of an idyllic home they have built for their family. Our bunch of 6 discovered the compost toilet, it was interesting with a barn smell, not too bad if you forget about the idea when sitting on the toilet lol! We loved the experience, sharing the kitchen, meeting Dumb & Dumber their sheeps, or their 4 Musqueteers calves. We relearned how to use water with more responsibility. The beds are very comfy and bathroom very clean, their whole home is sparkling clean. I can’t tell you it all or I ‘ll spoil the discovery. Overall great unexpected experience, with lots of warmth from our host and their little friends. Matt has funny stories to share and was very nice to arrange for a visit at the milking farm to get fresh milk which was yummy, unfortunately we missed the morning milking as we woke up too late. Thank you Sue & Matt + Hope.

A wonderful place to stay. Off the beaten track but definitely worth the visit. Matthew and Sue were awesome hosts and extremely welcoming. If offered the opportunity of dinner or a cooked breakfast, take it, you won’t be disappointed!
