Going to bed with alpacas, sheep, ponies and a donkey right next to you is a nice feeling and the animals are friendly enough for a pat as well which takes away the stress of traveling. We got lost mainly because the road sign is non existent but that was our only gripe. The hosts are nice, the studio room quite large and fully functional if you want to cook for yourselves ( you have your own BBQ outside the door as well), the bed is comfy and the bathroom spotless with a beautiful shower. Everything is clean and they have a rule of no shoes inside which suits us as its our rule at home too. Proximity to restaurants etc in Havelock North is close, and this would be a great place for kids to come to as theres a pool plus a playground as well. For something a bit different would highly recommend it. But please, please, can we have Sky Sport on the otherwise fairly extensive Channel availabilities? Like most kiwis I love my sport, as does my wife. That would seem to me to be a vital decision to make when planning an accommodation business in the heart of NZ.
