“'My home is your home feeling...'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2013

Came over to NZ for three weeks and spent the last three nights of our holiday at A Kiwi Farmstay. We did Hamilton, Wellington, Napier, Rotorua plus numerous other places but the one place my daughter is still talking about is the farm! Everything about this place is unbelievable... Right from the very start Luka and Sophie (the two children who live on the farm) and Simon the owner of A Kiwi Farmstay give the feeling of being a part of their family... With a very 'open door' approach opening up their home and sharing their lives with those wanting to experience a 'slice of heaven'. Motorbike riding, feeding the animals (chickens, cows, goats, lambs, dogs), collecting the eggs, horse riding... are just a few of the things which you and your kids can enjoy! The views from the top of the hill are absolutely breath taking... Honestly do yourself a favour if even only to relax and veg out... Go! Its awesome!

Room Tip: The cabin is great!

Just imagine a Friday after work pack up the kids and head north within an hour they will be feeding lambs, goats, chickens, ducks, cows and dogs.
For the more adventuress you can ride to the top of the hill on the mountain bike for an impressive coast to coast view and sunset. Stay in a quaint cottage and have with a wine with your host Simon who is so welcoming and a genuine kind person and is always wanting to give more so you have the best time. He was so encouraging to our daughter Mary she has smiled all weekend.
Sit outside with Simon and watch the satellites pass over in the Star studded night sky, as you wish on shooting stars as they zoom by.

Room Tip: Remember to shop for food on the way up as this stay is on a farm. Bring the right foot wear be prep...

Just a short trip from Auckland, this small farm is back to basics but Simon and his 2 kids will welcome you with their hearts. Great place for families with young kids and even older ones. Close contact and bonding with young farm animals, a chance to get back to nature. Nearby horse riding is terrific, as well as nice small town for excellent food and wine.

Room Tip: You can choose to sleep in their cottage of come in a campervan.

My family was overjoyed to meet kind man simon and his two little children.We felt at home every minute of our stay in this green paradise surrounded by hills and farm animals. Simon the host went all out to ensure our stay was comfortable and memorable. His generosity and friendly nature made our stay in this tranquil place worth it and we will definitely go back to A KIWI FARM STAY many more times. We highly recommend this place to any lover of nature and animals! - RAY

Room Tip: The cottage is a cosy place to stay and has a better view of the area.
